The Night Watch

Today didn't start all that well. The DFDS Seeways ferry: squeaked; rattled and rolled all night long, which didn't make for the best crossing possible. We also discovered that I don't get sea sick but my better half does...

Once we were on solid ground we negotiated the Danish road system to get onto the bike infrastructure, to cycle to Ribe our destination for the day. It took a bit getting use to being on the wrong side of the road, but the Danish drivers were both very forgiving and rare so it was a pretty safe exercise until we were onto the cycle route. We cycled the hour and a half to Ribe along the sheltered side of the sea dyke which protects the country side from the North Sea, so we were out of the wind and had a very easy cycle.

Once in the city we had a brief explore before we checked into the Danhostel and could have a shower and change into normal clothing. After dinner we went back into the city to follow the City's Night Watchman tour. The very nice chap gave a fascinating tour of the city and explained how it had developed over the centuries and best of all spoke very good English! Today's blip is a shot of our host for the evening.
