Due to some incidents, I needed to buy a German Railway pass (like Interrail). I with this ticket I’m able to use nearly all trains within Germany.
When I handed my Bachelor thesis over to my university on Friday I spend the same evening with my closest friends, but used the ticket for a week-end trip to Denmark before returning to Karlsruhe.
To Rødby I took the direct train from Berlin to Copenhagen with departed at 11.15am and arrived in Rødbyhavn at about 4pm. I used the ferry Puttgarden-Rødby, which I took some years before during a Sweden vacation with one of my friends. As I assumed, nobody checked the ticket before the train boarded the ferry, so I black rode the 45 minute passage.
So I arrived in time at 4pm and “Aldi was ’bout to close“, so I hitched to Rødby to buy the most famous Danish beer: UGLENS
No offence to the brewery, but it is also know as Eulenpisse (Owl Piss – see the small owl), and
You should have drunk it (at) once
It will be drunk with my friends at once in Berlin for the umpteenth time. After I succeeded that mission, I hitched to the beach of Rødbyhavn. I had my tent with me, but because camping is illegal in Denmark, I used the tent cover to put me and my stuff on. I enjoyed the sunset and the sound of the Baltic Sea with its ferries, birds and waves.
Unfortunately it was not easy to sleep….I covered myself and my stuff with the tent cover, wich was blue. First a father with his daughters saw the strange cover and shaked it…It was an awkward situation, when I crouched out of the cover… 😀
30 Minutes later, two women with their dogs caused the same awkward situation. The dog even became aggressive. Well it smelled that there was something not legal happening.
After these incidents I found sleep for one hour, when it started to rain. First it was nice, I stayed dry and the sound was great. But then it rained harder and surprise ^^ I got wet. So I ran out in the rain and built up my tent. With no warm clothes I spend the night on the ground and in the fresh air. I even lit a candle inside my tent but due to the wind, it didn’t warmed the inside.
After a short night I packed the wet things, got in my swimming trousers and hitched on the ferry, because I didn’t want to black ride it again.
I stopped in Hamburg for two hours, so I bought a bread roll with fish and walked a bit through the city – although I don’t like Hamburg very much. Well and then I entered the train to Karlsruhe to arrive there one hour before the TATORT.
