Yonder, where the road bends - H.C.Andersen (Hist, hvor vejen slår en bugt)

A couple of weekends ago my family visit my farther in law in Svendborg and as always we took a drive through the very wonderful landscape of south Fyn. As many knows H.C. Andersen is born and lived most of his life on Fyn (Odense).

He wrote many things in his life and is know around the world for his great fairy tales. What I didn't know was that my wife grew up just very short from the place that inspired H.C. Andersen to write the text to the song "Yonder, where the road bends" or in Danish:  "Hist, hvor vejen slår en bugt".

Here is a picture of the place and if you think a bit about it your might be able to see what H.C. Andersen saw about 175 years ago:
