of salty eyelashes, sandy toes, wind in my hair and
the endless sea brought me to the west coast of Denmark. Also known
as Jutland, the area boasts dramatic landscapes shaped by the North
Sea: windswept white-sand beaches, high rugged dunes covered in
gently swaying golden grass and expansive tidal flatlands. You can
walk for miles and miles – to the horizon and beyond.
I stayed in a tiny cottage in Søndervig, a charming beach town
which became a popular holiday destination in the 19th century.
There are also lots of German bunkers buried in the dunes, serving
as a stark reminder of World War Two.
The skies are Instagram-filter-blue, the light is magical, the
wind bracing and the sand feels like powdered sugar under your feet
– finding Hygge on the Danish coast is easy.
