TASMANIAN LINK: Danish travellers Nina Baron and David Enghuus are finding out all about their princess-to-be’s home State. Picture: TIM HUGHESMiss Baron, 20, and Mr Enghuus, 21, are on a working holiday in the State, helping out on the tall ship Windeward Bound at Low Head.
“We both like to sail on tall ships, and we wanted to see the world,” Miss Baron said.
“We came to Tasmania after spending half a year studying and sailing on an educational tall ship called The Denmark in Copenhagen.”
A search on the Internet for information about other tall ships they could work on led the couple to Tasmania and the Windeward Bound.
Miss Baron said that the forthcoming royal wedding in Denmark between Prince Frederick and Tasmania’s Mary Donaldson was a big event and was figuring prominently in their news.
“My grandmother was excited when she heard I was coming to Tasmania, where Mary is from,” she said.
But “the royal family and wedding is more important to the older generation in Denmark than to the younger people”, both agreed.
They knew very little about Tasmania before their arrival but have spent time travelling and sightseeing.
“It’s beautiful nature down here. You can drive for two hours and be in the bush or a rainforest,” Mr Enghuus said.
“I’m amazed how friendly the people are. You meet people on the street and they just talk to you, which is really nice.”
Miss Baron will head home to Copenhagen in August to start university study but Mr Enghuus intends to spend a year travelling the world.
