  • Fifty shades of rain
    • 30/06/2017
The rain has now evolved from sunshine and showers to all day drizzle and downpours. Hasn't put the locals off from going out to cut the grass, I'm starting to wonder if there is a regulation height and a secret police who come round to check that standards are being maintained!
Yesterday I crossed the small bridge to the middle island, Funen, and sought refuge at the hostel in Odense. Danhostel is their YHA - the Danes love putting Dan in front of the names of things.
Thursday nights is free entry to the rather good Brandts museum of art/photography/media, displaying more clean Scandinavian design, excellent realist landscapes, and crappy modern cubism.

Today had to take the train to cross over to the eastern most island, Zealand, as cycling not allowed on the 30km bridge/tunnel crossing. The trains have loads of space for bikes, but to get on and off, three steps, maybe 50cm in total, not easy to lift a loaded bike!
Haven't been stopping to admire the scenery much as the rain is monotonous and the horizon disappears into mizzle.
Tonight staying in a nice looking shelter (open fronted wooden shed on a platform in the forest), rather than putting up my already damp tent. Forecast better tomorrow, and onwards to Copenhagen!
