This morning, Super Duper Wuper Mum took both Eloise and Lachlan to Football Buzz. Eloise was enthusiastic to show Mum her new tekkers. Lachlan was loving it, he is still too young, we will have to sign him up shortly.
Due to some insane flight prices, Dream Team 2.0 had flown to Aalborg a few days early, this gave us the weekend to enjoy the city. After an incredibly Danish breakfast, they just know how to do everything right in Denmark, we set off.
We caught the 5-minute ferry across to the small island Egholm on the search for a large wooden troll.
After a lovely but longer than expected stroll around Egholm we found “one of the famous Thomas Dambo trolls”.
Pil Tusindtunge is the name of the troll who “moved to Egholm” in the summer of 2020, where Dambo performed 10 of his famous trolls under the name “Den Store Troldefolkefest”, and if you want to find her, it is a good idea to take good hiking boots on, because Arrow hides approx. 4 km from Egholm Ferry Terminal.
There was not too much else to see on Egholm so we headed back. Lunch today was the best sushi we had ever had from a street food market on the mainland.
Back home it was action stations, the weather was great and the kids were full speed at the playground. We had a lovely catchup with Kirrie while bonding over how great Liam is at driving. Kirrie was equally relieved to have survived the testing days in Jokehampton. Eloise managed to convince Kirrie to buy her an ice cream. Thank you Kirrie, you have got to watch out for that one though.
After lunch, we stumbled to Springeren, Maritime Experience Centre which had caught our attention. It was sad the kids were not here, they would have absolutely loved it.
The major attraction was a Dolphin Class Submarine which you amazingly could go through. We all instantly felt like kids again. Eloise would have been in heaven with buttons and levers literally everywhere to push and pull. The periscope even worked which was neat.
It was pretty special walking through the submarine. You just cannot do that in Australia, besides the fact that we don’t have any submarines that can be spared. Hiding behind the sub was a Brave-Class Patrol Boat.
There was just an endless amount of toys for big kids here.
After all this strolling a rest was deserved before checking in on the kids.
Back in the UK “King Charles III was greeted by thousands of people as he arrived at Buckingham Palace for the first time as monarch”. “Prince William and his wife Catherine have been named the new Prince and Princess of Wales by King Charles III”. “King Charles III has praised the Queen’s “unequalled reign” after being proclaimed king at a ceremony at St James’s Palace. The King became the monarch after the death of his mother, but a meeting formally confirmed it on Saturday. He also approved the day of the Queen’s funeral, Monday, 19 September, being a bank holiday”.
