Where the fairy tale started

Samsø 5

The southern tip of the small danish island of Samsoe
where the island’s lighthouse warns seamen
built on the site where in the viking age were a fortress
ruin remains can still be seen in the slopes.
Nowadays the islanders would have as many guests as possible
before in ancient times so people inhabited these small islands to be left alone
so the fortress was like the lighthouse is, a warning to seafarers approaching the island
just on a whole different meaning.

Samsø 4

Self-sufficient energy.

Samsø 3

Idyllic fishing village atmosphere.

Samsø 2

Old local lime burner house.

Samsø 1

It was the island’s intercity bus for about 50 years ago, is still running now as tourist bus.

Samsø

The dark red building, before it was ship victualling supplies warehouse
now there are toilets, bath and living facilities for sailors.

Born on this island and lived there for the first 4-5 years
later on then my parents moved back and still lives there.

All photos taken the summer of 2013.

  2. Hvis ikke Home indgik som tema, kunne dit indlæg passe med at du har fødselsdag 🙂
    Det er fine billeder, du bringer fra et solbeskinnet Samsø, Drake. Ballen Havn er hyggelig, og den fantastiske gule bus med flag, rødt tag med plads til kufferter og gule hjulkapsler den tager stikket hjem 🙂 🙂
    Mange hilsner,
    Hanna

      ‘hahaha’ – det er snart men ikke endnu… 🙂

      Den gule bus er en herligt brik i ø-billedet, startede i de tidlige 60ere som rute bil og skolebus på øen – chaufføren bliver iøvrigt 80 i dag lørdag og lever i bedste velgående – kører ikke mere men har stadig sit buskørekort… 🙂

      Miljøet omkring Ballan Havn kunne vinkle Samsø endnu mere som turistø end det er tilfældet i dag… 🙂

  3. I can see why your parents moved back… Beautiful place. I like the Old local lime burner house 🙂
    Thanks for taking us there, Draken!

      Even I haven’t lived there for many years – so it’s still my roots – I believe it’s a very good basic to be born on a small tiny island before moving for living much larger places… 🙂

  4. Loved the photos and story – I felt the “home” in your “voice” as you shared the memories. Have a wonderful weekend! 🙂
