The little village where HC Andersen was born in Odense, on the island of Fyn. His original house is now a museum and the rest is a real village where people still live today. It’s a real-life fairy tale!

A street on the island of Aeroe, a tiny island in Denmark. This part of town has been preserved to maintain its original appearance from 1680. People really live here, and it’s a little fairy tale town. It’s an absolutely lovely place to visit.

Egeskov Slot, a castle that is privately owned by a family who has owned it since the 1600’s. People live there, and it is passed down each generation. ┬áIts grounds are magnificent.

Lavender grows abundantly in Denmark, thanks to its mild climate. The scent is incredible, and bumble bees cover the shrubs from morning till night. This shrub sat just outside of our B&B in Aeroe.

Fish soup, made with the day’s catch. Restaurants and fisheries are abundant in harbor towns, and the fish is absolutely fresh and delicious.
