Home from Holidays
We've returned home from a little two week holiday [little because we get 5-6 weeks of holidays in Denmark] to the Danish island of Bornholm. It's a lovely place and it often feels like Denmark's own little Mediterranean paradise. They call it the Sunshine Island and the local dialect is so unlike the other dialects in the country that you feel like you're in another country.
It's a popular holiday destination not just for Danes but for Swedes, Germans and Poles, given it's proximity in the Baltic Sea south of Sweden. In the photo above, Wifealiciousness was sneaky and caught Felix and I on our way home in the evening on the clunky old summer house bicycle. She was walking with the pram at the time.
Sneaky, too, in catching this shot earlier in the evening.
But hah... I'm sneaky too. Here's Wifealiciousness and Lulu heading through the countryside. We got to test-ride the new two-wheelers from the iconic Danish bike brand, Christiania Bikes, who are located on the island. I had Felix on my bike, while Lulu rode with Wifealiciousness on this little 30 km bike ride one day. The requisite baguette sticking up out of the bike is such a summery sight.
