Disclaimer: Due to the number of comments that have been received it has been felt necessary to clarify that this trip is in no way based on "The Long Way Round" which the authors of the trip were not aware and nor was it first broadcast of at the time at which this trip was drunkenly conceived. The authors of this trip would like to distinguish their intended trip from the journey undertaken in "The Long Way Round" in that unlike Charlie Borman and Ewan McGregor they are not experienced riders (they have both only been riding motorbikes for just over one year), they are not receiving sponsorship and they will not have a support crew with them at any point on the journey. Just to avoid any further confusion it has been thought that it would be helpful to point out that Tom Horovitch and Peter Caley are both fictional characters and are not famous film stars.

Copenhagen, Denmark - 910 miles from London


We are currently sat in an internet cafe in the town centre. We spent Thursday night in Northern Germany and left early in the morning for the 300 mile journey to Denmark which we entered yesterday evening by taking a short ferry crossing from Puttgarden in Germany to Rødbyhavn which sits in a cluster of islands in Eastern Denmark. The ride here was fairly exhasting, on motorways most of the way and oblivious to the time or even what day it was we got caught in the Friday night rush hour outside Hamburg. Once in Demark we were fortunate to spent the night in a very pictureque campsite on the way to Copenhagen, but had to take shelter early in the tents due to the swarms of mosquitoes that descended upon us due to our waterside location. We carried onto Copenhagen this morning and we are planning to continue on from here today into Sweden via the impressive 10.5 mile Oresund tunnel / bridge. We haven't spent long enough in Denmark to get an accurate impression, but what we have seen seems suprisingly shabby but not in an unpleasant way.

The view from the tents last night:
