Lot of Danes spend their weekends in the summertime camping. It is a fun, friendly society on camps around the country. Some have the caravan on the same spot for years, while others drive around and visit camps all over the country, or rest of Europe for that matter.

Remnants of summer

I found this in the woods. Several months earlier someone had a great time with a one-time barbecue. The plastic bag and the metal from the barbecue was still available, 6+ months later. Oh, well :-(

Nice darkred townhouse

Typical Copenhagen style townhouse. Often houses are painted in vidid colour on the upper floors, while the ground floor is usually a shop of some sort. The ground floor houses a restaurant called 'Hvide Lamz' (eng. White Lamb)

This weather is rare at times

Even though we are in Scandinavia in Northern Europe, snow is not as common as one should think. At least not this winter. But today we got what we deserved :-)

Our bicycles in our garden almost totally covered, the car look like af white dune and work was done from home. Oh well, soon it will be over...
