Across the dunes
A few days ago I was driving around in Denmark with friends. We discovered an unusually large dune by the horizon and drove there. At sunset we climbed the dune with sand flowing into our eyes and throats. As we reached the summit we discovered the old lighthouse Rubjerg Knude, built in 1899 at the top of Lønstrup Klint.
The area had been abandoned for many years, as only ruins and rubble remained of the surrounding buildings. The area felt like something from an Indiana Jones movie rather than an northern European country.
In daylight we climbed even more dunes and it was almost impossible not to start humming on the soundtrack to Lawrence of Arabia or Dune. If you happen to pass the area, I strongly recommend a visit.
