After a gentle stroll through the woods, we packed up and set off from the quiet lakeside haven that had been our home for the last two nights. Knowing we'd be leaving Sweden in a few days, we spent the last of our Swedish krona on fuel before stocking up on supermarket items we knew would be difficult or more expensive to buy once we left; oats, knäckebrød (crisp bread), kanelbullar (cinnamon buns for Vicky) and caviar paste in a tube (for Will).
