Day 81

Gandrup

sunny 18 °C

Beautiful weather again today as we packed up in Copenhagen. Our street was reminiscent of London with its faux Georgian terraces and was quite lively with fruit stalls and activity.

A few miles down the road we came across another impressive bridge crossing similar to the Malmo one with a 6 mile high suspension bridge and 4 miles of a lower arched bridge which took us onto the Jutland peninsula which makes up the bulk of Denmark.

After a few miles heading North on the motorway we turned off and took some nice small coastal roads. The countryside was very green and lush and there is an awful lot of farming and fields which might explain why everywhere smells of cowpats! We think it's muck spreading season!

Up the coast nearing Aalborg we boarded a ferry for the quick hop to the other side of a long inlet and got some petrol on the other side. There we met up with Jacob, another Fazer rider who I got in contact with on an online forum (not that sort of forum!). He had kindly offered a place for us to stay for the night, so we took him up on the offer. His Fazer looked factory-fresh next to Frazza! The three of us rode the last 10 miles or so to his place together and when we got there met his wife Fleur and Max their little 6month old Terrier.

We said the other day that we were impressed with the frendliness of the Danes, but Jacob and Fleur set a new standard. We spent the evening chatting about the bikes, the trip, how they met etc and they plied us with beers, cooked for us on the barbeque and then got out the wine, champagne and whiskey! We went to bed eventually!
