Caught in Spain: Trying to run home

- Now we try to drive home. We have no idea whether it is possible to get over the border crossings. But we would like home to Denmark now.

the Couple Hanne and Jan Holm sits currently 'trapped' in their small townhouse in the village of Torrox, situated 40 kilometers east of Malaga in Spain.

the Couple drove in their Folkevognsrugbrød to Spain the 1. march, before the contagion-the spread of coronavirussen was really starting to take off.

- It was supposed that we should stay down here for 1. may. But now we have been somewhat jittery over the development and would like to home. The question is however, whether we can even run home to Denmark, says the 67-year-old Jan Holm to Ekstra Bladet.

Jan Holm fear to be caught in the kæmpekøer at border crossings through Europe - or in the worst case to be refused entry in one of the transit countries, he must go through to reach the home to the island of Falster.

- My wife has an impaired immune system, so we would like to quickly home. If we suddenly are going to hang in France, so we are worse off compared to live down here in Spain. Conversely, I think that it could take several months to get home, if we do not try now. All tips the to, says Jan Holm.

Both he and the family in Denmark has tried in vain to get in touch with the Ministry of foreign affairs to ascertain what the possibilities are for reaching, through all the border crossings.

- We have written and called. But we have not received any response. Now we have decided that we are running early Friday morning. Then we'll see what happens. We can well cope with us temporarily in our Folkevognsrugbrød. We have considered to take a flight home. But it's also been very difficult, and we also have a 40 kilo heavy labrador with, so it is not possible.

the Danes brands clearly how the Spanish authorities have tightened up, after that the spaniards are beginning to die of the virus and the infection is spreading with lightning speed.

- There is enough food in the stores. In the small shops there must only be two clients at any one time. Dog walking is permitted, but only one person needs to be followed with the dog. It is also only one person from the household, which must buy into. The police patrol over all, and control is intensive, says Jan Holm.
