Uge 29-31 ... Weeks 29-31

Hjælpsom information: Vi bruger "uge nr." i Danmark at fortælle når noget sker.... For eksempel-- vi er i UGE 30 nu....

Background information: We use "week numbers" in Denmark to tell when something happens... For example--we are in WEEK 30 now...

Sidste sommer var jeg SÅ OVERRASKET at finde ud hvor "lukket" Danmark er i uger 29, 30 og 31 fordi alle danskerne er på sommerferie! Selv vores bageri var lukket i 3 uger! Nu har jeg en nem metod at vide at vi er i enten UGE 29 eller 30 eller 31 i Danmark..... Kig...

Last summer I was SO SURPRISED to find out how "closed" Denmark is during weeks 29, 30, and 31 because all the Danes are gone on summer vacation! Even our bakery was closed for 3 weeks! Now, I have an easy method to know that we are in either week 29, 30 or 31 in Denmark.....Look...




Campingvogn bag små biler er OVERALT i Danmark i uger 29, 30, 31 så danskerne kører til andre lande! Dog, er det ikke så sjov at køre bag en fordi i Danmark, kan du køre KUN 70km/timer med en campingvogn!

Camping trailers being pulled behind small cars are EVERYWHERE in Denmark during weeks 29, 30, and 31 as the Danes are headed to other countries! However, it is not so fun to drive behind one because you are only allowed to drive 70km/hour if you are pulling a trailer!

I love those trailers - funny cause that's exactly what we are looking to buy for our camping trips! I'm looking for a real retro 1970 style - one that doesn't LEAK !

And the weirdest thing of all to close in the summer:

PUBLIC SWIMMING POOLS!

During my first summer here I went into a mad fit upon hearing that they close the swimming pools during the hottest time of the year.

What madness.

I never got the hang of using week numbers, and when I ask Peter about plans he will ALWAYS ask me what week is that, and I will tell him (for example) the week of July 27 and he will get irritated and ask what WEEK NUMBER is it, and I get irritated because I don't know.

Next you'll be riding behind hay haulers and horse trailers. And people who drive like maniacs but have gun racks and NRA stickers in their windows.

I love that they are pulling them with small cars!! I don't know exactly why, but smaller has always appealed to me. And I'm heartened to see that if I want to buy a small camping trailer, I won't also need to buy an SUV to pull it! :-) Yay!

Funny... I remember seeing the weeks noted on the calendars, and thought it was an interesting detail. Now I know better! I love these little cultural differences.

Thank you for sharing Kelli!

Cool Blog!!! I have a question what is that clock like gizmo in the right hand corner of your windshield for?

it is our parking meter... you have to set it each time you park in DK and there are attendants who write you a 550Dkk ticket if you go over your time... it is CRAZY!

LOL! The whole of Scandinavia shuts down in July!

Caution Flag said...

That's a parking meter? A self-set parking meter? And people are honest?

I am impressed that small cars are pulling those trailers. Must be very light trailers.

We saw one of the huge Winnebego bus-things on the road the other day, and our eyes almost boggled out of our heads. How do you get that to the camp sites on these roads?! Must take a really good driver. We've seen a ton of your Danish campers around here...they've all come to Norway to camp!
