Off the beaten track – Billund Bageri (bakery)

20150427_102341So what’s with all the travel posts from Denmark you may think?
I have recently been to Denamrk a few times to check on our holiday house down there. We will likely be going to Legoland every single year in the foreseeable future.

It is great fun to see how excited they get when they get a little treat. Continue reading
