Bomlitz to Arhus Denmark Train Day 94

Well, today I left the comfort of my relatives lovely home and went on my merry way to Denmark. They drove me to Hamburg to catch the train. There was construction on the autobahn, so after 1/2 an hour of going 140-160 kph we were suddenly down to 20. And it was looking like I might not make my train! I’m so chill about this kind of thing now. If I miss the train, no biggie, there was another an hour later. But Manfred did it it and I made my train. After my visit and rest I’m SO ready to tackle the rest of Europe!
After many requests I’m posting the “rings.” This first one we bought in Heidelberg together. It’s just the “symbolic” ring (well, it’s actually 3 rings!) for me to wear because Paul took the “real thing” home for safe keeping. I was a bit worried one of the diamonds might fall out since it’s an antique and the bezels on the ends looked a bit thin. I’ll get them re-set when I get home.
These are the cheap and cheerful version…
The real one! Late 19th century, old cut diamonds. I love it.
I found the Nik Naks in an XL pack! If I don’t stop eating them I’ll be an XL as well! I can exercise when I get home…right?
Yes, I seem to have a nut obsession…
My first view of Denmark. The people really are so very blond here, and it looks natural! I feel like an oddity with such dark hair! Wait until I get to Sweden…

    It’s ok – some of the Swedes are dark too – look at the ABBA girls – one vanilla – one chocolate – right??? Does that sound gross – I hope not – I didn’t mean it to. Have fun in Scandanavia. I think it might seem more like home.

    ps- the 40’s are great if you make them so. You’re going a great job of that.
