Me and Jukka Pennanen are now in Berlin, designing and preparing the Cycling for libraries -event next summer. We rode a rental car from Copenhagen to Berlin via Nykøbing-Falster, Rostock loads of Danish and German countryside to get a general idea what we are facing here. This has proven to be really good idea, not only is it very useful to get some first hand experience of the journey and meet local colleagues, but also these places are absolutely, absolutely stunningly beautiful!!
My camera and photographic eye does no justice, but i’ve put some photos online for you to see and also for ourselves to remember. Please do enjoy! There’s about 120 photos at the time, and from my photostream you’ll find more photos which are not necessarily so related to this event. I’ve split the photos into a few sets, and will add proper metadata later. And catalog the photos into MARC21 too maybe xD not
Jukka has a much better camera and also a video camera and that material is coming online later. And there’s a plenty of it. But take it from me: Danish and German countryside is fascinating and totally inspiring, there’s plenty of restaurants and cafés everywhere for tasty food and the bicycling route is very good too. And it is needless to say that both Copenhagen and Berlin are awesome places to ride bikes in (especially in good company).
Special thanks to all the fantastic people we have met this far and who have shown their support and taken good care of us: Sonia, Mikkel, Michel, Jan, Robert, Beate, Thoralf and everyone else. You know who you are!
