Hiking from Marsh to Beach

Sunken ancient roads and old bridges. I think it is fascinating to imagine what challenges people had in the old days when they travelled through the landscapes.

People have been very exposed to all kinds of weather with the equipment they had back then. Passages through wetlands must have been very challenging.

Ellemosen is a wonderful marsh with a 2,800-year-old paved path, and a 5,200-year-old pile-built bridge, which today is hidden underwater.

Now new paths have been established in the marsh, but for a completely different purpose. Birds and beavers are waiting for your visit.

Far out in the marsh is a very nice and cozy hide in an old pumping station.

Inside the hide, there are lots of information about what kind of birds you can see in the marsh.

The picture on the right shows the 2,800 old paved path, and on the horizon Tibirke Church is seen as a small red dot.

DSC08167On my way towards Tisvilde Beach, I make a detour in the hills of Tibirke Bakker, up to a place called Udsigten, ‘the view’.
To the right, I see Arresø with Arrenæs and to the left a glimpse of Kullen’s ‘blue mountains’ in Sweden. In the middle of it all lies Holløse Bredning, the marsh.

I continue my walk down to Skovkærsvej in the forest, Tisvilde Hegn and out to the sea.

I can highly recommend a walk in this wonderful area ❤

Hiking in Montenegro, Balkan

Tyrkisblå floder, sorte bjerge, afgrundsdybe kløfter, ældgamle klostre. Montenegro er et land, der er svært at se sig mæt på. Du kan prøve med toget, der kører fra Bar, byen der ligger tæt på grænsen til Albanien.

Romerne huserede her i år 900 hundrede. Det fortælles, at da de kom til det sted, der i dag er Dormitor Nationalpark, blev de så betaget af naturen og stilheden, at de døbte stedet den sovende, Durmitor på latin.

Jeg var på en rejse her for en del år siden. Det var en enestående ferie, dog uden vandrestøvler. Det forhindrede mig imidlertid ikke i at udforske landet. Montenegro er på min bucket list, over smukke steder jeg vil vandre.

Jeg havde booket rejsen hos et rejsebureau, og boede i byen Petrovac. Herfra foretog jeg udflugter og små vandreture. Der var en formidabel badestrand, nogle gode restauranter, og et lille torv ned mod havet, hvor eksotisk musik strømmede ud over byen. Det var i september måned, og vejret var smukt.

Her er nogle nyttige links. Har I yderligere information må I meget gerne sende info som kommentar ❤
