HANNA'S WALK

“We buy havens for Denmark’s birds”.
This is how the Bird life Fund and the Danish Ornithological Society present their lovely information material about the nature reserve Vaserne at Furesø and they are doing a remarkable job out there.
I did a wonderful walk from Holte to Birkerød on a stormy day. A haven for people too.

A Bridge, The Roman Iron Age and a Bog

Map of a walk in an ancient bog

I find old bogs fascinating.
Four days ago we went through this bog on a road network consisting of planks and footpaths which ensures the traveller a dry shod travel.

People lived in this area for millennia.
When people dug peat in the bog in 1943 they found an old road system.

Large stones cover the road, and dates back to the Roman Iron Age.
They also found a plank laid road, 150 meter long, possibly a bridge, with 400 wooden poles that can be dated back to 2,800 BC.
Archaeologists believe the poles were meant to support a planar road across the wetlands.

Sing all ye joyful, now sing all together!
The wind’s in the tree-top, the wind’s in the heather;
The stars are in blossom, the moon is in flower,
And bright are the windows of night in her tower.Dance all ye joyful, now dance all together!
Soft is the grass, and let foot be like feather!
The river is silver, the shadows are fleeting;
Merry is May-time, and merry our meeting.Sigh no more pine, till the wind of the morn!
Fall Moon! Dark be the land!
Hush! Hush! Oak, ash and thorn!
Hushed by all water, till dawn is at hand!
All Ye Joyful by J. R. R. Tolkien

Munkholmen, a market place for Vikings

Munkholmen was an important market place in the Viking Age.
I always imagine a spectacular sight of Viking ships sweeping across the fjord while those on the shore eagerly are awaiting the latest news.

The ships are photos from previous years of the Sea Stallion from Glendalough at the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde, and a ship from the Maritime Experimental Centre, Lyndby, Kr. Hyllinge.
Munkholmen is 55 km from Copenhagen a run passing Roskilde where you can find the Viking Ship Museum.

Short flight and attractive salt marshes

Det kunne være overskriften på Fugleværnsfondens plakat i Nivå Bugt.

Tell me about Sweden

A dear friend of mine asked me about Sweden. What is there to say? What is special about the country?
I like their high moral. The Swedish friends I have might say that the moral is hypocrisy but I like many of their views.
Sweden is the third-largest country in the European Union by area, with a total population of over 9.8 million inhabitants.
Sweden has a low population density of 21 inhabitants per square kilometre, with the highest concentration in the southern half of the country. Approximately 85% of the population lives in urban areas.
Southern Sweden is predominantly agricultural, while the north is heavily forested.

We stayed for Christmas Eve in Sweden this year and had a very cosy Christmas. As usual we went for beautiful walks in the countryside and along the coast.

Sweden has great nature. There are many nature reserves and national parks. Furthermore is the establishment of Sweden’s first national tourist bicycle route – a 370-km-long bicycle route in a unique coastal setting. The route runs all the way through Halland, connecting Helsingborg in the south and Gothenburg in the North.

En af mine kære venner spurgte mig om Sverige. Hvad er der at sige? Det særlige ved landet?
Jeg kan godt lide deres høje moral. De svenske venner, jeg har, vil måske sige, at deres moralbegreber er noget hykleri, men jeg kan godt lide mange af deres synspunkter.

Sverige det tredje største land i EU efter størrelse, med en samlet befolkning på over 9,8 mio indbyggere.
Sverige har en lav befolkningstæthed, med den højeste koncentration i den sydlige halvdel af landet. Ca. 85% af befolkningen bor i byområder.
Sydsverige er overvejende landbrug, mens den nordlige del er stærkt repræsenteret af skov.

Vi holdt juleaften i Sverige i år, og havde en meget hyggelig jul. Som sædvanlig og med stor glæde gik vi enestående ture i Haverdal Naturreservat.

Sverige har stor natur. Der er mange naturreservater og nationalparker. Desuden er etableringen af Sveriges første nationale turist cykelrute en realitet – en 370 km lang cykelrute i et unikt kystnære omgivelser. Ruten løber hele vejen gennem Halland, der forbinder Helsingborg i syd og Göteborg i nord.

Jægersborg Dyrehave byder på mange historier, og naturligvis er haven blevet optaget på Unescos Verdensarvsliste 😎

Jeg har haft mange forskellige oplevelser i haven: En tåget morgen, hvor jeg knap kunne skimte slottet;  en dag, hvor regnen silede ned, og dyrene gik tæt forbi mig, imens de græssede; kronhjorte, der badede en steghed eftermiddag i august; en vinterdag, hvor sneen fik udsigterne til at minde mig om Norges fjeld; og ikke mindst min opdagelse af kolerakirkegården og forbindelsen til Hvidtjørnesletten.
I kan læse nogle af historierne, der ligger som links under billederne i dette indlæg.

Der er mange gode og spændende ture, jeg aldrig havde forventet at opleve i et landskab, der er så kultiveret.

Måske er det magien ved at tage på tur; at færdes på naturens præmisser og være åben over for nye indtryk –

Nu har jeg prøvet en Hubertus Jagt. Det var et rent tilfælde, jeg erfarede jagten fandt sted, og min nysgerrighed overvandt min trang til at søge mindre befærdede naturområder.

Dyrehaven var tilgæld så overbefolket, at jeg kun kunne se korte glimt af rytterne. Det kan jeg godt leve med, fordi jeg så en masse glade mennesker, som havde hver deres fest midt i trængslen.

På Eremitageslottet overværede Frederik og Mary begivenheden sammen med deres børn.

The Deer Park

Jægersborg Dyrehave offers many stories, and of course, the garden has been included on UNESCO’s World Heritage 😎

I have many different experiences in the garden: One foggy morning I could barely make out the castle; a day when the rain poured down and the animals went close past me while they were grazing; red deer, bathing on a hot afternoon in August; a winter day when the snow made the landscape look like the Norwegian mountains; and especially my discovery of a cholera cemetery and the connection to the Hawthorn plain.

I never thought one could experience that kind of things in a landscape that cultivated. Maybe that’s some of the magic when you are out for a walk,  to get about on the conditions of nature and be open to new impressions.

Now I have tried a Hubertusjagt. It was pure coincidence, I learned ‘the hunt’ took place that particular day, and my curiosity overcame my urge to seek less crowded ‘wilderness’ areas.

Busy, it was in the Deer Park that day, and I only saw brief glimpses of the riders. I can live with that, because I saw a lot of happy people having their own private party going on.

Frederik and Mary and their children were watching the event from the castle.
