Getting real but getting it wrong about carbon emissions, I used trains and a ferry to get myself and my bike back to Denmark for a 3-week push on Dyalog’s new CRM system that turned into 4. Great way to travel: although the trip took 24 hours instead of 9, it was mostly productive time — I can work on trains and ferries. Next time I’ll try the train route, with advice from The Man in Seat Sixty-One.
Couchsurfing found me Annika Rosenström as a generous guide to the Helsingborg area, and Guxi Abel, who introduced me to Balkan music lovers in Copenhagen, the Caipirinha and more besides. Shades of M. Hulot: I wound up one evening kitted out as a pirate, apparently the only guest invited to a costume party. (But then, Hulot did get to dance with the blonde.)
