Where do you get your inspiration when you are going for a walk?
I found myself without any idea the other day. I had one glorious one in mind but it was far to late for train and ferry.
By a process of elimination, I chose the train towards Copenhagen and soon I found myself on Kalvebod Fælled on Vestamager, a place I have visit before.
But this time I decided I wasn’t going to walk these endless paths.
From the last time I knew there would be bikes for rent. Though I didn’t know how good the bikes were.
Now I’ve tried one and it was really great. I had an extraordinary ride with twinkling lights a blinking sea and wide open spaces where horses were grazing and birds foraging.
A group of children were swimming, and people went surfing further down the beach. A sailboat had crashed under one of the recent storms. A guy checked with the police who already knew about the ship.
I was so happy for the sun and the long bike ride that I forgot about the deadline for submission of the bike. It became a bit of rush at the end.
It is highly recommended. Not the rush but the bike ride!

You are so lucky to have so many beautiful bike and hiking paths. The pictures are lovely.
I do enjoy and highly appreciate the nature. So much joy and exercise for free 🙂 Thank you!!
PS I think it’s a jay 🙂
I think you won’t be surprised, but… I love this area ❤
I can confirm that biking there is a great idea, the area is too big to be covered only by walking 😉
Did you see a havørn?
I thought of you when I went by the Metro. I heard the ‘Vibe’ and another bird that sounds very much jungle-like. As if the bird was laughing at Amazon’s language 🙂 I’ve heard it before near Rådvad but I’m not closer to solve what kind of exotic bird it is.
Of course, I also saw herons, but the bird is so tame that it sits on my landing reading special offers for fisheries 🙂
Sorry but no eagle!! Not what I was aware of I was in a hurry for the last part of the ride.
It looks a lovely ride, Hanna. Such beautiful scenery 🙂
Thank you, Johanna. It’s amazing with a nature with such a view only 8 kilometres from Copenhagen ❤ 🙂
A very pleasant outing, Hanna. And handy to hire a bike. Pity the blackberries aren’t ripe enough for picking. It would have been nice to sit in the sun and nibble away at them.
Hi Alen. The berries just need a little bit more of sun which use to be a minor problem in the summer under normal conditions 🙂
The place is awesome due to the magnificent view. Your eyes can rest on swaying grasses horses cattle and birds gather to migrate.
That’s what make my spirit sing 🙂
Relativ nyt inddæmmet område, men allerede godt i gang naturmæssigt – i den forbindelse er 70 år jo blot et splitsekund – de militære ammunitionsjægere har også gjort deres arbejde – skønt at der etableres et sådan område så tæt på en metropol – håber mange benytter sig af tilbuddet – hamrende flotte billeder… 🙂
Jeg har lige læst, at helt tilbage på Christian den 4.’s tid brugte militæret fælleden til øvelsesterræn. Det er ikke sært, at der skulle et stort oprydningsarbejde til 🙂
Jeg kom til at tænke på Høvelte, Sjælsø Sandholm. Der var jeg på tur for flere år siden. Desværre er der langt imellem besøgsdagene for publikum, da militæret stadigvæk har øvelser på området. Militære øvelsesområder har noget særlig natur at tilbyde:
SÅ GJORDE JEG DET, GIK I MIN BRORS FODSPOR, BOGSTAVELIGT TALT
Mange gode hilsner til dig, Drake!
I usually set a goal where I want to go.
And if I don’t have one, I just start walking.
Thanks for comment!! It is a very good tactic, rabirius. Especially if Georgia’s mountains entice in the horizon 🙂 Georgia is still on my bucket list.
But you’re right, sometimes you just have to go out of your front door, then the inspiration comes along while walking.
It’s hard not to think of The Roads Go Ever On by Tolkien. For me J.R.R. Tolkien gets the essential up in his poetry about walking… The adventure ❤
