When local is real local

Tunø (the letter ø means island in danish) is 3.52 km².
The island is located between Jutland and Samsø and has about 90 residents.
The local church is the lighthouse of the island too.
No cars allowed, so 3-4 small farm tractors, bike or walk is the transport model.
The only car on the island is an old LandRover converted to fire “truck”.
The parish priest comes sailing from either Jutland or Samsø.
There is a health nurse who manages small maladies
– while a doctor comes over a couple of hours every two weeks.

Walk inspired by “Restlessjo” and her captivating “Monday walk” themes.

Local busses.

  1. Far from the madding crowd, Drake 🙂 🙂 That is possibly the best church I’ve ever seen! I’d love to see inside. Many thanks for sharing! Hope you had a nice Easter.

  3. Denmark and Sweden have so many tiny wonderful islands to explore. And thanks for the info that ø means ‘island’ in Danish. Another word to add to my limited Danish vocabulary. Now I’ll just have to get someone to pronounce it for me…

    • Denmark, Sweden and not to forger Norway too – those nordic countries hav e lot in common. 🙂
      The letter is known from both danish and norwiegian Like the letter o with umlaut (ö) as it appears in the german alphabet – often spelt in english with “oe” too. Used in french oe and can be compared with the french œ (known from Sacre Cœur). Hopes it helps a bit. 🙂
