Six BGTW members were fortunate enough to be invited to visit The Coastal Land of Denmark on a fantastic trip (from 24 to 27 August) that explored the city of Horsens – and its prison – and the magnificent coastline and islands in this relatively unexplored region of the Scandinavian country. They even attended a stag party, birthday bash and funeral at sea, as well as eating the best burger in Denmark, courtesy of Ji-Mi.
Our thanks to Kasper Iverson of Visit Denmark UK and Line Vinum of Destination Kystlandet (The Coastal Land) for their great hospitality and navigational skills.
