    Question Are there mistakes in this text?

    First day
    Today, we left Tønder and drove along a country road to Esbjerg. This route gave us the opportunity to look at the unique Danish landscape. At the coast, we were able to discover a lot of Danish islands and peninsulas. 40 km before we reached Esbjerg, the land use changed. There was nearly no more pasture or oats, but barley and onions.
    The street was sometimes surrounded by soft hills. After a short stop at Esbjerg, we continued our journey to reach the famous Legoland near Billund.

    Second day
    On our trip from Billund to Arhus, land use changed again. Now, fields were filled with plenty of wheat, rye and potatoes. Near Arhus, we saw the Møllehøj, the hightest natural point in Denmark at 171 m. In Arhus, we could see the coast again but this time the eastern one. After a short rest there, we continued our journey and reached the town of Skive at the eastern boundary of the Limfjorden, a seaway of gigantic extend. Until the early 18th century, it formed the link between the North Sea and the Kattegard. It is approximately 112 miles long and up to 36 miles wide, covering a total of 656 square miles or 4% of Denmark‘s total area (excluding Greenland). In Skive and the north-western part of Denmark, the same land use as near Arhus prevails. By boat, we crossed the Limfjorden to reach its northern boundary and proceeded our trip by car along the northern coast, where the land is mainly unused. After a while, we reached the northernmost point of our journey, Skagen.

    Fourth day
    After a day of rest at a Danish beach, we took the ferry from Skagen to Helsingør on the island on Sjæland, which is also home to Copenhagen, the Danish capital.

    The shipmaster told us that northern coast is just waste land but has really beautiful beaches. When we arrived in Helsingør, the landscape looked different to everything we had seen before. There were fields of gigantic extend with wheat and sugar beets. Surprisingly, also fruits are planted here.
    At noon we arrived in Copenhagen, which is home to one quarter of Denmark‘s population, and took a day and a half of rest to visit this admirable city and to learn that the southern islands of Denmark and the northern part of Sjæland are the main producers of wheat and fruits in Denmark.
    In total, Denmark produces three times as much food as it needs to feed its own people.

    Sixth day
    Today, we left Copenhagen and took the motorway to Kosør through fields of wheat and potatoes. There, we crossed the bridge to get to the island of Fyn and reach the city of Odense. Since we left Copenhagen, the landscape looks again very similar to the one near Arhus.



    Seventh day
    Today, we crossed the bridge to get to the Danish mainland (Jylland)-a peninsula- again. In Kolding, we visited a museum about the Danish fjords and were surprised when we were taught that the Danish fjords are not real fjords because there are no high cliffs surrounding them. But still, a lot of so called „fjords“ could be seen when we traveled back to our home town, Tønder. The Aabenra fjord impressed me most because of its size and beauty. At the border to Germany, which is the only land border to any other country, we turn westwards and reach my home town Tønder, again.

    I'm terribly sorry. The headline has to be "Are there any mistakes in this text?".

    It became more and more filled with sand and mud until it eventually closed.
