In the city of Silkeborg.
We originally stopped by here to see the Tollund Man on our way to Skagen, but as the museum was rather disappointing, Cafe Evald turned out to be the highlight of the trip.
I asked the waiter for a very local dish and he recommended Pariserbøf, a hamburger steak fried with a piece of bread and topped with a raw egg, pickles, capers, raw onions and beetroot. Pure homely comfort food. I think it was also the first time I tried capers.
All that good food, fresh local brew, warm sunshine and lapping waters had such a therapeutic effect, we had a slow slow lunch, friendly chats with the waiter and people-watched the afternoon away.
That, to me, is a wonderful holiday.
this series really brings out the wonder and quiet joy in your holidays :)ReplyDelete
Thank you, though I'm afraid our holidays will drive most people I know crazy, we sometimes even take afternoon naps!Delete
I think this is my favorite installment of your Denmark trip so far - when I am traveling I appreciate the disappointment of visiting somewhere that failed to reach eexpectations and to not mind it when something else comes along to make your day instead. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Katie, yes I really have to agree with you, so many times places look so good in the guidebooks, but unfortunately... ...only in the guidebooks. Then again it might not be fair to judge as everyone loves different things. I go crazy in a greenhouse, HC just yawns *lol*Delete
Hello Shirley! Everytime I visit your blog I really want to pack my bag and visit all the places that you have been. There is this relaxing pace, slow but yet very deep and informative feeling in your pictures. Agreeably you don't choose places by popularity, and it adds such wonderful touch in your storytelling. You invite us to take part in your trip, to see what we might miss in our lives, and to know you as a person. However, what I envy you the most is that you have such a great partner to travel with. He appears in your pictures as a very understanding and supporting person. I know very well that a good companion is what makes a trip either memorable or disaster. So yeah, lucky you! Maybe you should let him make a guest post so we could see YOU in the pictures, not just him. ;)ReplyDelete
Hello! Thanks for your wonderful words! I often feel that there are two kinds of people in this world, people who get it and people who don't, and I do tend to take the most everyday things. If they don't it's kind of hard to explain, but sometimes when you meet someone who do, it's such a nice feeling. I originally started this blog because I wanted a place where I can remember my trips by and can easily access my photos (I still highly suspect that I'm the most frequent visitor to my own blog *lol*) As for HC yes he's quite an easygoing guy, though he does get grumpy when I keep him from his food just to take pictures. You seem to be having fun with your classica, it shows in your photos and I'm really glad.Delete
