  • Day339

    Sports Stadium Stellplatz, Kungsbacka

    May 31, 2017 in Sweden ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    The wind had really picked up overnight, whipping straight across the sea and over the low lying land of the West coast. It was therefore a difficult drive to our next stopover at a 'Stellplatz' outside a sports centre.

    Our impression of motorway rest areas has definitely improved since a low baseline was set soon after we entered Sweden. The one we visited today was clean, with well set out parking and even provided a dedicated facility for emptying cassette toilets.

    We've been used to seeing alcohol-free beers but picking up a few bits and bobs from the supermarket, Will found some alcohol-free red wine. We guess it is a consequence of the strict regulations on selling alcoholic drinks here. We got two different types but the first just tasted like good grape juice without any if the punch or depth of flavour in a normal wine. We'll let you know if the other turns oit to be any better!

    The stopover was supposed to be 100 SEK (£10) but the biglietautomat (ticket machine) was oit of order and the signs for payment had been covered up. Nonetheless the area was well maintained and we were able to plug in to the electricity point for free!

    Day 19 - Argh! So much sun!

    May 31, 2016 in Sweden ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    After an evening camping in Boras, being bothered by the local crazy cat lady (a feature of all Swedish urban camping sites) we started riding out of the city as the sun rose in a cloudless sky.

    As a 25 degree day, we were in unknown territory. I was particularly struggling with thermal underlayers as my lightest clothing option. So it was a sweaty day of cycling through towns and along country roads, seeking shade and cool drinks where possible.

    We stopped on route in a town cafe, where I was able to get an ice coffee and we both had a proper lunch at a shaded outdoor table. After making heavy use of their complimentary soft drinks and chatting to the chefs, who all had working experience in the UK, we set off for a final push to our destination of Satila - a destination and a campsite reccomended to us by the last camp.

    Unfortunately, when we arrived it became quickly apparent that the Satila camp was a dive - unsupervised and ill-maintained with low quality facilities infested with bugs. So we were effectively wild camping, and only making use of the flat ground for the night.

    On the positive side, we were beside a large and beautiful lake, so I got to have a quick dip and we spent the evening on the pontoon cleaning our bikes, reading and generally enjoying the location.

    Day 20 - Lunch in sun, Dinner in storms

    June 1, 2016 in Sweden ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    So we awoke in our bug-infested, abandoned campsite and didn't waster any time getting our tents packed so we could move to the lakeside for breakfast. I did indulge my inner wild-man by using the bug-swarmed outdoor shower (little more than a worn shower curtain and a dirty shower mat, in a wooden shelter) before we left. I don't know if I was cleaner, but I felt cleaner.

    After breakfast and a quick wash of dishes in the Lake (only Porridge oats and water, so no dirtying the pristine waters) we set off. Before hitting some blissfully flat trails, we had to cross a valley, which meant two steep peaks and drops back to back. With the sun beating down, the swear was running and we were both being pursued by clouds of flies, as we conquered both peaks at the best pace that we could manage.

    After that, we stopped for lunch and cold drinks, plus a quick sink-wash, before bumping into a fellow (but former) Welsh man, who hailed from Bangor. We had a chat before setting off on what should have been an easy flat 40km. Unfortunately, after about 10km we caught sight of lightning on the horizon, along our route. After some indecision, we decided the best thing would be to hide out in the local pub (the first we have seen) and possibly wait out the storm.

    That proved to be a very smart idea, as the storm quickly approached and crossed over us. Torrential rain swept in and lightning followed, striking frequently and even hitting the ground across the street from the pub at one point - causing a power outage and cutting off out phone signals.

    So, with that weather front continuing to Loom, we opted to book into a hostel flown the street. We lost the chance to cover more distance, but gained a safe shelter and the chance to wash our clothes.

    Äskhult, Švédsko

    July 3, 2018 in Sweden ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Navštívili jsme dneska skanzen v Äskhult. Nebyl moc velký, ale krásný. Zase jsme tam byli skoro sami. Moc příjemný a milý personál. Ale to jsou vlastně všichni Švédové. A stále je velké horko, uff.

    die letzten Tage

    August 15, 2018 in Sweden ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Gestern Abend haben wir nach einer kleinen Wanderung im Vättlefjäll Naturreservat (Naturreservate gibt es in Schweden wie Sand am Meer) wieder einen schönen Spot zum übernachten gefunden...
    Lesestoff vorm Zelt versüßte den Abend während Junior bereits selig schlief

    Übernachtung mit Zugang zu See

    September 13, 2018 in Sweden ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Eigentlich wollten wir Göteborg ansehen. Allerdings kamen viele Baustellen , Mautstellen und starke Regenfälle dazwischen, so dass wir nach einer Weile durch die Stadt fahren keine Lust mehr hatten. Also fuhren wir weiter und suchten ein wieder einen schönen Platz in der Nähe eines Sees.
    Als wir ankamen war wieder schönes Wetter, so dass wir noch einmal im See planschen gehen konnten. Nebenbei machten wir uns etwas Abendbrot. Auf dem kurzen Weg zum See, fanden wir wieder einmal mehrere Pilze die wir anschließend noch zum trocknen aufbereiteten. Die roten wurden natürlich nicht verwertet 🤣Read more

    Sehr gut im B&B geschlafen. Gut gefrühstückt und bei strahlend blauem Himmel losgefahren. In Varberg einen Halt eingelegt. Sehr schöner Ort am Meer. Uns mit Falaffel und einem Eis gestärkt. Danach gefühlte 1000 Kilometer bergauf, bergab bei starkem Gegenwind gefahren.
