This morning we woke up with
real shitty weather, moist feet, but, for the rest, everything all right.
Thanks to our little GPS, we travelled fluently through Hamburg, and we had
dry weather all the way to Puttgarden, where we took the Scandlines ferry.
No traffic jams to get on the boat.
And yes guys, we made it to
the Danish border. And we survived the boat trip. Today we have 277 km
(172 miles) on the speedo. We stopped in Fakse so tomorrow morning we
won't have to drive too far anymore to the Bugs Funny show. They have
a guided tour on their program, and we don't want to miss that one.
The buggy is still running
fine. We aren't playing music on the road, so I can concentrate on the
sound of the engine, and atop a.s.a.p. in case I might hear strange noises
in the rear. A few times we smelled burned rubber on our trip today,
and we are always very happy to discover that that smell didn't come from
the buggy. I have no idea about the speed we're driving at (the
speedometer broke down), therefore I always keep an eye on the tacho which I
keep at an average of 2800 rpm. In Danmark, you're obligated to drive
with your main lights on, but we don't follow that rule (too dangerous to
cause an empty battery). A lot of people here say 'hààài' and then we
'hààài' back to them. We assume it means 'good day'. The
traffic lights over here switch from red to orange before they switch back
to green, that makes it simple to know when you need to start accellerating
Okay, that's it for today.
See you tomorrow & greets from
