We had a very short day, leaving port at 1:30 PM. But we packed the morning visiting the ancient Viking site of Lindholm Høje. In the 1950s the burial site was discovered, over 700 graves covered by sand. Men’s graves were triangular and women’s round or oval.
Back on the bus, we drove to a community garden. There were many of these kinds of gardens in Scandinavia. But I was surprised at the size of the garden plots in Aalborg. We visited one couple’s garden and were even invited into their house. Yes, house! In a garden plot. The owners are allowed to sleep at their site during spring, summer and autumn. These particular plots were rented for what I believe is about $300 year. Amazing. We sampled the local aquavit, but I have to admit I didn’t think it was very good.
