Where I stayed
It does not take long to traverse the country from West to East, and after a short stop to look around Viborg, we are in Randers and looking for the daisy signs.
We find a daisy sign and begin to follow the route
The Route certainly lives up to what is designed to do as what we are now seeing puts Denmark into a new light as far as sights and attractions are concerned. Our Denmark experience is now much more enjoyable as we traverse the countryside with one eye on the road and the other watching for a little brown daisy sign.
Through little villages and towns we go (Ostrup, Stovring, Voer and many others), fjord crossing by ferry, castle exploring and manor house gazing. Denmark is alive with sights and sounds in vast contrast to the previous 2 days. Even pastry shops in small country towns are easy to find!
Our journey brings us to our designated accommodation for the night.
It is called Fuglsřcentret, and is a full scale resort hotel and conference centre located in the heart of the National Park Mols Bjerge
We pull up at the front entrance. There is a distinct absence of activity and Gail is getting edgy. “Not again” she bemoans. I am not convinced of her pessimism and start toward the front door. It opens. A good sign! And there on the front reception counter is an envelope with our names. There is a key and instructions of what to do and where to go.
There may not be any people but at least we have a bed. In fact we have an entire resort to ourselves.
Once we get settled into our room we set out for a quick local meal. After an hour of driving around all the local villages we are, once again, becoming frustrated that not only is there very few eating establishments, but any that we find are closed - either for the night, season, or permanently. As a last resort we head toward Ebeltoft - a large township that is bound to have something open.
A couple of kilometres before we get there we pass what appears to be a hotel (pub) with an adjoining restaurant. We stop and go in. It appears quite swanky and we feel under-dressed but when your stomach is rumbling, nothing seems that significant. We are directed to a lounge area prior to being given our table. "A glass of champagne to start" the waiter asks presumingly
This is not a good start to a quick local meal, especially when it is established that the glass of champagne (label unknown) works out to about $30. However, this is Denmark and nothing comes cheap!
After the meal we continue down to Ebeltoft to have a look around then drive back to our ghost resort to sleep off the events of the day.
