From two to three on Turtle tour

A lot has happened in our lives since our last post a little over two years ago, when we announced that we had split up.

As some of you know, we’re back together again. And even more.
We also drive around in Turtle again from time to time. And then we got company ….!

1.5 months ago we had an experience that made us consider whether it was time for an update here on; We were spending the night in Turtle on a roadside by the lake “Damhussøen” in Copenhagen, when a friendly woman came and knocked on the door to offer us to fetch water, borrow a toilet, wash clothes, etc. from her. She lived right next to us, and had (naturally enough) wondered who was outside her house – and because the website is written on the car, she had figured out who we were.

Therefore, now we think it’s appropriate to update the page – and you who read along – to our current situation: It is still the two of us, Morten and Mette, who drive around in Turtle – and now also with an extra passenger – namely our son, Sebastian, whom we became parents to 3.5 months ago.

On a trip in Turtle – now with a pram.

Autumn sun in Vendsyssel (Everyday Adventures in North Jutland, week 11)

Reading time: approx. 9 min.

Turtle at Poulstrup Lake.

It had become the last week of our project “Everyday Adventures in North Jutland”, where we drove to all the municipalities in North Jutland one by one, exploring the small everyday adventures and this week the trip had come to Hjørring Municipality.

We crossed the municipal border a late night after it had darkened, so the first thing we did was to find a place we could stay overnight. We found this at Poulstrup Fishing Lake. It was a little bit funny that we ended up here, since the very first place we visited in the first week we were traveling in North Jutland was also Poulstrup Lake – just in the municipality of Aalborg.

We parked next to the fishing lake and got a good night’s sleep and breakfast before we drove further out into the municipality.

Flade Hills with a spectacular view (Everyday Adventures in North Jutland, week 10)

Reading time: approx. 9 min.

The Vilsund Bridge to Mors is seen out of the bus window.

Our everyday adventures on Mors took place without Turtle when he broke down the week before and right now stood in my little brother’s workshop in Djursland. It was therefore an X-bus that transported us from Thisted to Nykøbing Mors this Monday evening.

Without Turtle we should of course also find a place to sleep and I had via the Couchsurfing app (an app where people offer that you can sleep on their sofa) found Gry, who lives in Nykøbing and offered that we could stay in her home for a couple of nights. It turned out to be a win-win situation, because we really enjoyed ourselves in each other’s company from the beginning and only few days after our arrival Gry suggested that we could stay there the whole week if we wanted – an offer we quickly and thankfully accepted.
