Smile Freki presents Bornholm Island

Far far away in the Baltic Sea lies a small Danish island, twice the size of Nantucket, with a population of only 40.000.

While fairly unknown to most of the world it is a popular vacation destination for Germans, Danes and Swedes as it offers a nice mix of sandy beaches, calm nature and cozy villages.

To Danes it's popular for 2 main reasons - the first being as it has bedrock ( the rest of Denmark is old coral reef without bedrock ) and the second is that it's the island in the kingdom that get's the most sunshine.

Other famous things are the castle ruins, trolls, the rocking stone, smoked herring and bisons..


Anyways enough chatter, here's some pictures from me and my gf's trip there doing the summer of 2017
