Denmark is a really nice place - and many of us will get extra pleasure from the coming summer.

As it looks right now, there is a rather small prospect of new exotic stamps in the 'beetroot-colored' right from the first. For many, this year's summer holiday will again be spent in the Danish summer country.

But that should not stop us from going on adventures. And it does not get much more exotic than an island hop around the Danish islands.

The idea for the island pass originally also originated under slightly more exotic skies. A former travel agency colleague has told me that she took an island passport home from another trip Seychelles, and that her godmother, Britta Leth, seized the idea and made the Danish island passport based on inspiration from here. And from there it picked up speed.

The island pass is an ingenious invention and one of the reasons why our children think it's extra cool to explore the Danish islands with us. In addition, I think that - in terms of marketing - it is a bit of a stroke of genius when it comes to enticing us Danes to explore our own country. There is a bit of mini-competition in collecting as many stamps in our island passports as possible while we discover new islands and experience our beautiful landscape.

I usually rarely write about the experiences that our 'backyard' offers. But that does not mean that we do not regularly take the children out and enjoy the Danish nature and all the experiences that await out there. It is for both us and the children fantastic family time that connects us extra much and gives us one on the experience.

We do this regularly on weekend trips throughout the year. And when in the spring of 2017 we got an island passport from my sister, the hunt for the coveted 'island silhouettes' began.
