Silkeborg, Denmark

Are you tired of Denmark blog posts? Well, I promise this is the second to last post. I have fallen behind with traveling and having poor WiFi connection. #thestruggle

Monday morning (April 29) in Denmark began with a nice walk into Herning with Louise and Eva. Upon our return, I had an impromptu photo shoot with little Eva using the delayed timer on my camera. Despite her facial expressions, I can assure you she thinks my peekaboo and patty cake skills are stellar!

After lunch, Louise and I headed to Silkeborg while Eva stayed with grandma.

In Silkborg, Louise took me to Sky Mountain. There, we climbed to the viewpoint and soaked in the view.

After snapping some photos, we hiked down to the lake and then hiked back up to the car again to head into Silkeborg to explore.

In town, Louise and I stopped at a couple of stores before sitting down near the lake to have a quick dinner of sandwiches where we chatted about everything and anything.

Once wrapping up dinner, we hopped into the car and headed to the sports arena to watch a handball match!

Handball is the second most popular sport in Denmark after soccer/football. The sport involves passing a volleyball-type ball between players by either a bounce pass or a direct throw of the ball. Points are scored by throwing the ball into a soccer/football goal. Two 30 minute halves are played with a 15 minute halftime break.

Recently, Denmark won the Men’s National Handball Championship. Louise and I watched two local teams play. However, both teams had national players on their teams. Pretty cool!

The game itself was INTENSE! Louise and I were convinced one of the teams were going to win over the other based on their warm-up exercises. One team happened to be in-sync and coordinated while the other team messed around during warm-up. However, the team who happened to be goofing around won the game by one point!

For me, I found handball to be more exciting than American football. I totally would go back to another game!

A great day!
