Saturday Connie, Jeanne and I rented a care and drove out to Møns Klint for the day! Møns Klint is chalk cliffs on the coast of Denmark, approximately 150km south of Copenhagen.
When we rented the car it was extremely funny because as we stood at the cashier to pay for the rental car, the guy behind the desk seemed to be a bit confused about the price. He kept emphasizing what a good deal we got on the car, and when we asked him whether it was not him who set the prices, he laughed and answered that it was obviously a mistake! We might just go ahead and book our next trip now, while the price is still cheap!
We packed a lunch and had a picnic on the shore. Of course, we had to put our feet in the ice cold water, so cold I got a foot cramp... as you can see in the top left. The picture directly above was taken by a passing mom with her child. She called out to us in German whether she should take our picture (all these Germans around me are starting to color off on me...). The above is the result: what a beautiful picture! Except we kind of look like a girl band straight from the 90s.
We then climbed the 994 steps back to the top of the cliffs where we wandered around the paths along the top.
Connie drove, because I can't drive standard, and I sat in the front seat on the way there which meant I was in charge of directions! My mom is reading this saying "oh no", and oh no is exactly right... you'd think following the GPS on my phone would be simple enough, not to me. We only had to turn around 3 times, there were only about 4 turns on the entire trip. In the end we made it but, I will never be asked to do directions again!
Jeanne moved back to France on Sunday, so it was a perfect end to her time in Copenhagen :) Connie and I are already planning our next one day road trip to who knows where!
