    September 3, 2017 in Sweden

    Also dieses Schweden hat sich heute mächtig ins Zeug gelegt, mir zu zeigen, wie schön es sein kann. Nicht nur, dass meine letzten Platzwarte echte Herzchen waren - überraschend mitteilsam jedenfalls, vielleicht weil auch sie sich jetzt in der Nachsaison etwas entspannen können. Der heutige Platz setzt dem noch einen drauf. Ich stehe direkt am Wasser und habe meine eigene Terrasse. So komfortabel hatte ich es an keinem Platz zuvor. Und auch nicht so preiswert. Nachsaison hat eben auch seine Vorteile. Zur Krönung wurde ich auch noch mit einem 1A Sunset bedacht. Das ist doch ein angemessen schöner Abschluss meiner Reise.

    Tageskilometer: 179 km

  • Day466

    Well, it was awful. In a word, awful. The air pump we'd bought didn't fit the mattress, so I had to blow it up manually. Then it didn't fit in the tent either, which was absolutely miniscule. We basically slept on top of each other, and there was no room either side for clothes, accessories or dog beds. The tent fabric was quite thin, which meant that it stayed light all night (full moon and then sunrise at 4am), and since it was so small all of the inner walls got drenched in condensation from our breath.

    Both of us spent most of the night awake and I hated every minute of it. It's going to be a long month.

    First stop was Biltema again to pick up a larger tent. It's hard to make informed choices when all of the info is in Swedish! But the dimensions were included on this one and it would at least fit our mattress. We also bought a compressor-type pump, which charges via USB - very modern! Hopefully tonight will go a bit better.

    Finally we drove into Karlskrona, where it was raining steadily. This world heritage site is a naval base that was established when Sweden was a European power, back in the 17th century, and is still an active base today. Both of us were extremely tired and put off by the rain, so we just drove around for a while and looked at the site from inside the car.

    Had lunch at the maritime museum and checked out the submarines in there which were quite cool, and the buffet lunch was great as well. Buffets aren't a maligned concept in Sweden, they're actually quite popular and the food was good. While we ate the clouds cleared so we drove around town again, looking a bit more closely and filming as well. The site was OK in the end so it wasn't a total loss of a day.

    Drove an hour out of town to a campground which was quite nice. Found a good spot and made camp, this time the mattress went up easily and the tent is much larger - I can actually move around in it!

    God Jul! December 24th

    December 24, 2017 in Sweden

    In Sweden Christmas Eve is the day you open presents and have your big feast.

    I was surprised this morning with a package from Sydney with my stocking presents inside (Christmas socks, Santa hat, snow globe, stickers etc). Was lovey to have something from home.

    We actually went to the gym at 10am as Fredrik’s Mum is a gym instructor!

    Christmas dinner started at about 2pm with glögg followed by cold meats and cheese.

    Then at 3pm we watched ‘Kalle Anka,’ a Disney Christmas special which is an annual tradition in Sweden.

    After this the meal continued with hot food... meatballs, potato and anchovy bake, sausages etc.

    We then moved to opening presents! I was surprised with a gift from Tomte, two beautiful candle holders made in Karlskrona.
    My gift from Britt and Fredrik was a surprise 3 day trip to Copenhagen!!!!! So excited!

    We then moved to sweets and coffee with a massive selection of baked goods.

    Karlskrona

    August 31, 2017 in Sweden

    Karlskrona ist eine sehr schöne Stadt. Man läuft von einer Seite zur anderen in 10 - 15 Minuten. Geprägt wird das Stadtbild von der Marinebasis im Süden der Stadt. Sie erstreckt sich von der östlichen Stadtgrenze bis zur westlichen Stadtgrenze.
    Das Marinemuseum ist auch einen Besuch wert. Es sind viele Exponate zu besichtigen. Darunter das erste schwedische U-Boot und ein U-Boot der Näcken Klasse, die HMS Neptun. Die Neptun kann zudem von innen Besichtigt werden.Read more
