A Medieval ruin, A Tunnel System and a Tinker

The party was at 17 o’clock. We can take a walk in the area before our arrival.
My suggestion was based on the fact that “The adventure is waiting for anyone who understands to grab it.” ¹
Knud Rasmussens adventures were great, but small adventures also have their time on Earth especially when time is short 🙂
It was not a sleigh ride on Greenland, an experience Knud Rasmussen would have preferred, but a hike at an old castle tower and through a tunnel system formed by the last ice age.

Knud Rasmussen

Der, hvor Knud boede…

Højt oppe på klinten i Hundested med milevid udsigt over havet, boede polarforskeren Knud Rasmussen.
På en tavle på huset står disse ord for at mindes og hædre Knud:

“Her var hans hjem, og herfra drog han ud
den dristigste i flokken:Danmarks Knud.

En livsomfavner-som blev favnet selv
af lyse himle og af snegraa hvælv.

Saa tav hans hjærte som et standset spil..
hans sidste slædespor føg langsomt til.

Men som et nordlys over Danmarks savn
staar skæret fra hans smil,
hans daad, hans navn.
