Given that we were trying to fit a lot of latitude into a short amount of time, we didn't plan any sightseeing on the first Danish leg. Instead we just headed north out of Esbjerg (trying to keep from being run over by a gaggle of Audi TTs who happened to be on the same radio channel). Joined up with route 12 and stuck with it. Boy oh boy, what a boring road! It was like riding through a drawn-out version of Cambridgeshire. Oh well, this is just transport... we stopped off for a late lunch in Viborg:
And thence, onward to our stop for the night - Aalborg. We stayed in Hotel Hvide Hus, ate pizza at San Giovanni, had a walk across the bridge and at that moment discovered that in Denmark, you can ride a moped on the cycle paths. Odd!
