Farting around Denmark

We bid Sweden farväl as we hit the Øresund Bridge, a 16-kilometre bridge and tunnel that connects Sweden and Denmark. We didn't have an exact destination in mind so just hit the road and enjoyed the unique riding experience. Soon we got to the Storebælt Bridge, an 18-kilometre-long bridge which includes the world's second-longest suspension bridge, which lead us to Denmark's middle island. During a petrol stop we consulted our map to find a random place to go. We both immaturely giggled as we spotted 'Middelfart' on the map and decided we would set up camp here.

The road to Middelfart took over another two impressive bridges. We were pleased to find a lovely camp-site right next to a deer reserve where we spotted spans of beautiful Bambi's grazing around.

Greg was keen for a dip but all along the harbour were no swimming signs. We soon discovered why...

Hey, what's that in the water?

Jellyfish!

They're terrorizing these waters...

Come poes!

We feasted on a braai of random meats from the local butcher and enjoyed some of Denmark's notoriously expensive booze.

We had a relaxing stay in Middelfart and were planning to stay longer to see the local mental hospital museum and some classic motorbikes. However, these places were only open on Saturday's.

Heehee- I think a lot of people who saw the word "Middelfart" on a map would do exactly the same as you two! :D
