Hamlet's Castle And Denmark's Coast (Day 3)

Hamlet's Castle And Denmark's Coast (Day 3)

  English      Română


On the third day we realised that the Eurotrip, as we’ve planned it, was running kind of slow, so we decided that it was time to hurry up a bit. In the beginning we thought that we can take it easy and find different things to visit in Denmark, but places became part of our plan just because they were highlighted on a map, and not because we really wanted to see them. At that point, three weeks looked like they were going to fly so fast, so we decided that we are not gonna do things just because, as Philippe use to say, instead we will focus on what we really want to see.

Denmark is a beautiful country but its climate and environment is also similar with the Swedish one, and both of us wanted a change of landscape. So, for day 3 we’ve had a nice morning swim in the Northern Sea, just in Philippe’s case and afterwards a visit to the Kronborg Castle, also know as Hamlet’s castle, one of the most important Renaissance castles in Northern Europe. Later enjoyed a nice road passing through the Nordic Cote d’Azur, that showed the same opulence (luxurious mansions, expensive cars and let’s don’t forget about the yachts and all other types of boats).

Hamlet’s castle, one of the tourist attractions from Helsingor, was fabulous, but without showing off too much extravagance. It was a visit that was really worthy and the fact that the castle was so authentic made me think about those days while I was still studying theatre plays to be able to create a proper scenographic concept. If I would’ve been able to come to see this place when I was studying Shakespeare, my journey would’ve been different. (I will talk some other time about the changes that I will like to make in the educational system)

So, traveling by car and sleeping in it as well is something that we succeeded at. Our luxurious mobile home was a permanent source for our happiness, and every day things changed in the way that we organised the space, to become as efficient as possible. As travel goals, I really wanted to draw and to ride our kick bikes every time we had the chance, but until now we were always in a hurry and adjusting to the new lifestyle kept us busy. Still, Philippe managed to take the first bath of the season in the sea, and I saw for the first time what a seagull looks like from up close, something that amazed me, again this can be consider a theatre reference.

The end of the day found us near the German border, so we could experience a new country in our forth day.
