Camping in Denmark

I’ll be the first to admit it: I love camping.

We go camping with my parents every summer and it has become one of my favourite times of the year. Growing up, we often went to Northern Jutland where we’re from, but for the past years, we keep coming back to Fjellerup.

Almost every day dad goes fishing and brings home this —>

THE FOOD IS AMAZING!

Understatement of the century..

Once a year, for a short period of time when the weather is just right, we get to pick and eat fresh PEAS.

Hands up if you just love peas!

Now, some of us might remember steamed peas or yellow split pea soup being served at the family table and thinking adr (that’s Danish for yuck). But these peas.. They’re a delicacy.

Sweet and tender. Just the way I like them.

Homemade waffles

So basically, except from Danish Christmas food, nothing beats the camping food. There’s homemade waffles, barbecue, freshly picked peas, fresh-caught fish, crab claws and lobster tail  – and of course the ice creams.

At Fjellerup Vaffelbageri, they always give you double of what you order; so one scoop equals two very large scoops and it only costs $4.

FAMILY TIME AND FUN

As much as I love the food and all that comes with it, spending time with my family stays at the top of my list. Aside from Christmas, this is the time of year when we spend days together just having fun, laughing, walking and eating (I can’t help myself).

In my family, some of us… I’m looking at you, bros & co… show these emotions by wrestling, having water fights and kicking each other around. The rest of us prefer to read a book, take a stroll down the beach or make a bonfire.

HELLO, obviously much more fun.

BEACH TIME!

Now, I’ve never understood the people who go camping in the middle of a forest or far away from the sea. For me, it’s not really camping unless you’re by the sea where you can get a tan and watch the sunset.

You just have to lie there long enough. It’ll come eventually.

NATURE AND SUNSETS

Aw, the sunsets and the nature in Denmark… You know, I’ve always been more keen on traveling to other countries, seeing other cultures and being swept off my feet by azure blue beaches, but lately I’ve found a new love for my home country. The more I notice it, the more I realize how astonishing the raw nature, green forests and windy sea are.

I find it incredibly charming.
