At the Storytelling Festival

Yesterday, I went to the annual Storytelling Festival at Lejre, a small village 45 minutes outside Copenhagen. It is the site of an old iron age village and it is placed in the most lusciously green scenery you can imagine.

I went with Lars and Maja who hadn’t been before.

And it was a most enjoyable afternoon, wandering around the green landscape, listening to stories of trolls and other surprises, discovering the sacrificial bog:

And finding the little boar piggies:

I even tried to record a little film of the piggies happily rooting through the dirt. Aren’t they adorable?

I can only recommend going to the Storytelling Festival. I try to go every year, and it is always a wonderful experience.
