Crossing Denmark

Yesterday, we said goodbye to Copenhagen and hopped in a bus to drive all the way across Denmark, from the eastern island to the west coast of Jutland, taking in the beauty of the Danish countryside and counting wind turbines. (Counts vary because people kept falling asleep, but we saw between 110 and 250.)

Along the way, we stopped at Jelling, the ancient capital of Denmark, and saw the Jelling runestones that Gorm the Old, the first king of united Denmark, and his son Harald Bluetooth, carved in memory of their accomplishments.

Next to the runestones remains the oldest church in Denmark where we gathered together as a group for this lovely photo.

We ended the day in Sondervig, on the shore of the North Sea. Today, we'll be visiting the Danish test center for large wind turbines, which will be very exciting!
