The beautiful 18 kilometre long Storebælt bridge joins two of the many islands that make up the nation of Denmark. We missed the official viewing location, but managed to see it from below on the island of Odense during our July 2011 visit to Denmark. Driving over it was an ecstatic experience (Tony drove, while I gave myself whiplash looking out of all the car windows). The toll fee, however, was worth weeping over.
