Day 47: Malmo to Hamburg

This was the day Aviv was waiting for last few days. We plan to visit Legoland today. The Legoland at Billund in Denmark is the first Legoland built in 1960s.

The journey from Malmo to Billund Denmark was about three hours. Immediately after we left Malmo, we found ourselves on the longest combined road and rail bridge over sea in Europe.  Oresund bridge runs across the Oresund strait between Sweden and Denmark. The bridge runs nearly 8 kilometres from the Swedish coast to the artificial island Peberholm in the middle of the strait. The crossing is completed by the 4-kilometre Drogden Tunnel below the sea, from Peberholm to the Danish island of Amager. It is a four-lane bridge. This is a cable stayed bridge. Total length is 7,845 metres. It is an amazing sight.

We reached Billund in Denmark at about 3:30 pm. Anupam and Aviv went to see Legoland. Aviv is very interested in Lego toys and the Lego land. We both waited outside as going inside also was of not much interest to us. We had good coffee and snacks in Espresso house near the main gate. We met one elderly lady from India. She had come with her son and his family from Stockholm.

We started from Billund around 6 pm. and reached Hamburg late in the evening. It was a very important day for Aviv. As the day light is available past 10 pm, it is help in driving late in the evening.

We are just 2 days away from reaching London.
