I had a fantastic weekend at Skærbæk Fan Weekend, but all good things come to and end and today it was time to begin the journey home. I was the last to leave our little cabin as the rest of the folks had already departed for an early flight from Billund.
My car was packed and ready, and so was Little Caz’s. We set off for the German border a couple of hours away.
Breaking the journey a couple of times to look for geocaches again, this was a rather weed-ridden pit stop somewhere on the Autobahn! I’m not sure where Caz’s trunk has got to – perhaps it fell off somewhere along the way?
We were soon back in Osnabrück but this time I had been asked if I would like to visit Stefan and his family, who lived close to my hotel. I really wanted to see his wonderful illuminated city, Bricksonville!
What a treasure trove of LEGO wonder was to be found in their basement!
Even the cars have illuminated headlights on the city streets, which are teeming with life and funny scenes:
Four little ducks on the crossing! Do they think they are The Beatles?
It was a real pleasure to meet Stefan and talk with him and his charming wife. We were also entertained by the antics of his small daughter.
Here is the video I made about Bricksonville, where you can see the buildings in more detail:
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
My ferry in Calais was booked for 8:30pm so I had plenty of time to get there from Germany. I decided to look for a few more geocaches along the way, and broke my journey once again in Baarle-Hertog/Baarle Nassau where I had lunch.
We arrived in Calais with plenty of time to spare, and watched the sun set over the ferry terminal while waiting to board the boat.
It was then a very short drive to Deal to stay at my friend’s place again overnight – I had already done enough driving for the day and didn’t need another 90+ miles on the clock this evening.
Mid-morning, and I’m finally home after my epic road trip – 12 days away (almost 5 of them in transit) and more than 1,600 miles driven. What an experience. I hope you have enjoyed reading about it in my Road to Billund series. Now all I have to do is unpack this lot and sort it out!
