Roskilde and Farewell to Denmark

Thanks to Sol and Lars, we caught our plane from Karup to Copenhagen with time to spare. We had 8 hours before our flight to London so we caught the train to Roskilde, the old Viking capital. It is another cobblestoned town with much to see. We went to the Viking museum and the girls had a very Viking time with the extensive fancy dress available for 5 and 7 year olds.

Wandering the coastal town, with sun on our faces, was a a joyful way to spend our last day in Denmark. The weather was representative of what a Danish September can be like and it is a pity that we had such a rainy month.

We all felt that we had a nice sendoff from friends and colleagues in Viborg. Dinner at Lone’s place, lunches and drinks, gifts and kind words over our last few days. I would like to thanks everyone for your kindness. Thomas, a student, made me a new blog header as a farewell gift.

Denmark has been a great experience and both girls want to return, perhaps on exchange. Our two months was too short but we were not sad to leave, just happy to have been.
