Discovering and photographing the unknown beauty of Europe
On Tuesday 24 July, we left Fyn very early in the morning. We crossed the neighboring island of Zealand, paid a quick visit to one of The Viking’s aunts and then went to the Öresund, a tunnel – bridge that connects Denmark with Sweden. It is situated right to the south of Copenhagen. You can also reach Sweden via a ferry that leaves Helsingør, located in the north of Zealand. Both options cost more or less the same.
Instead of going southeast in Sweden, we first went to the southwest. Our first stop was in Torekov. This used to be a fishing village, but it has become a major touristic resort with a big marina, a beautiful beach and pubs and restaurants. There is also a maritime museum, which is housed in a big sailboat.
Although the landscape still resembles Denmark here, the architecture is different. The Viking and I saw a lot more houses in wood, which are usually painted in a kind of red which you can only find in Sweden. Even the small cabins in the harbor had the same characteristic color.
The Viking and I thought that Torekov was a nice place, but too big and touristic. We had a look in the local fish shop, but we didn’t buy anything. Most of the fish was fresh and not smoked and it was a bit too expensive as well. But since it was still quite early, we thought we had enough time to find the right fish shop.
