After saying our good-byes to Alex and Colleen, it was back on the road to drive half way across the country! That’s a lot easier to do in Europe ☺ On the way to Svendborg, we first stopped at the Soro Abbey Church, dating to around 1150. The most impressive feature of this church was the bronze burial monument to King Christoffer II and his family. The town of Korsor was memorable for the water tower that is known as “The Molar.” To get from the island of Zeeland to Funen, we crossed the Great Belt Bridge (Storebæltsforbindelsen), which has the longest suspension bridge span outside of Asia. We also made our first stop at Nyborg Castle, though we had a much sunnier view on the way back. At this point the rain really caught up to us, so our explorations of a church and castle on Tåsinge island were rather soggy.
