ok i’m only here for a night on my way to bacharach (where i’ll be staying in a 12th century castle hostel!!) but i just wanted an excuse to use that title…
i thought it was witty.
took a little daytrip to Helsingor recently… was recommended by a few people including Osa, this lovely old woman i met on the pier in Copenhagen.
It’s her hometown on the tip of Denmark and features the Hamlet castle (although shakespeare never visited there and the play was based on a character that probably didn’t ever live there…. but still.)
basically the perfect place to enjoy Denmark’s oldest bakery, nap in the grass and soak up some sunshine and sea air before leaving scandinavia.
as previously mentioned, i’m in Germany! heading down the west side to Bacharach, Heidelberg, Rothenburg and Munich. time to bust out my sparse german…
