  • Day3

    Der Sturm letzte Nacht hat mein Zelt nicht weggeweht. Mit Ohrstöpsel war davon dann auch nichts mehr zu hören und ich hab gut geschlafen. Heute Morgen hatte der Wind sich dann auch etwas verzogen, so dass beim Frühstück nichts weggeweht wurde und das draußen Sitzen wieder angenehm war.
    Als ich mein Auto heute Morgen gestartet habe, sagte es mir „Batterie fast leer. Aufladen durch Fahrtätigkeit“ 😱. Leichte Panikattacke.
    Warum weiß ich, ich hatte nur nicht vermutet, dass die Batterie so schnell schwächelt. Für all die mobile Technik, die Frau dabei hat, braucht es Strom, heißt, die vielen Akkus wollen aufgeladen werden. Wenn man nicht gerade auf einem Naturcampingplatz steht oder Wild campend unterwegs ist, sollte das eigentlich unproblematisch sein, habe ich gedacht. Die meisten Campingplätze haben Stellplätze mit Stromzapfstellen. Manchmal im Übernachtungspreis inclusive, manchmal muss man es dazu buchen. Also habe ich mir vor dem Trip ein 20 Meter langes Outdoorkabel gekauft. Blöd, es passte nicht in die Zapfstelle. Als ich in Stockholm war, hatte ich keine Steckdosenprobleme 🤔. In Schweden sollten unsere Stecker ohne Adapter passen. Ich habe die Tatsache, passt nicht, einfach akzeptiert und da mein Auto neben meinem Zelt steht, einfach Zündung angelassen und fleißig geladen. Kühlbox, Akkus für Lampen, Kamera, Tablet und Phone.
    Das war dann wohl Zuviel des Guten...
    Wichtig, das Auto lies sich nach ein paar „Hustern“ starten. Puh...
    Dann habe ich mich mal mit dem Thema Strom auf Campingplätzen auseinander gesetzt und habe etwas gelernt. Es gibt dafür einen internationalen Standard, nennt sich CEE. Hat man kein solches Kabel, tut es ein Adapter. Aha! Also, nächsten Baumarkt gegoogelt, dem Mädel am Infoschalter gezeigt, was ich brauche. Wie bei IKEA, hat sie mir die Nummer des Regals genannt, wo ich das Ding finde, 100 Kronen gelöhnt (sind knapp 10€) und jetzt kann ich Strom Zapfen.
    Nachdem das Zivilisationsproblem gelöst war, habe ich mich in den „Dschungel“ begeben. Wandern im Nationalpark Dalby Söderskog. Sehr mystisch, denn hier lässt man der Natur seit über 100 Jahren seinen Lauf, ohne das der Mensch eingegriffen hat. Schöner Rundwanderweg, alles gut mit Wegweisern gekennzeichnet, so das ich mich nicht verwandert habe.
    Den Rest des Nachmittags habe ich faul mit einem Buch am Strand verbracht.

  • Day47

    Lund, Skåne, Sweden

    June 18, 2016 in Sweden

    Days 45-46:

    After an early morning, a long travel day, junk food, and surprisingly good train croissants, we finally made it back to Sweden. We were met by Jason's mom's second cousin, Lena, and her daughter Clara at the train station, who were surprised by the massive amount of items we have collected along our way. Happy to climb into a car as opposed to walking somewhere, we made it back to their flat, where we were greeted by Lena's husband, Anders. Their son, Balder, who is visiting from Göteborg came home later on. We ate delicious homemade fish soup, had long conversations, and really enjoyed the night. We went out to a trendy bar with Balder for his birthday for a drink, then realized that a 19 hour day was sufficient and headed back. Despite a crazy cat, we slept well and were ready to explore in the morning... afternoon.

    After some sorely missed Swedish coffee, we were off to see what Lund has to offer. First, we came upon the Botanical Gardens, lined with trees from all over the world. It was really interesting seeing the plants organized by relation, especially. We figured our tour of European churches wouldn't be complete without seeing the most visited cathedral in Sweden, so that was the next stop. The current, standing building was finished in 1145. The original was built sometime in the 1080s, along with the cathedral school, which is the oldest school in Sweden.

    At that time, Lund was a part of Denmark, though, which we found out has the oldest national flag. Legend has it that the Danish people were losing a war, their leader prayed, the flag fell from heaven, they kept the flag and won the war. Again, legend definitely has it better than truth, so why not. We went down to the crypt to look around and we noticed this strange figure on one of the pillars that was drawing a lot of attention. Turns out it is Finn the Giant. An old legend says that the giant troll offered his services to a man building a church with the condition that by the time the task is completed, the man must figure out his name or he'll take his heart and eyes. With just a pillar tp complete, the man was nervous, so went out to the fields and layed down. He heard a troll woman singing and mentions Finn coming home tomorrow. The man rushes back and called out to Finn. The troll got mad and grabbed the pillar to tear down the church, but was turned to stone in his attempt. It was undoubtedly carved, but trolls turning to stone make such a better story!

    From there we went to a falafel window, because literally (seriously, literally) everyone was eating food from the same place. It was incredible, but something to do with the wind and some sort of pollen we've only experienced in Europe has given Jason some serious allergies. So we went back, took a nap, picked up a pizza, and watched Euro 2016 until bedtime. It has been a good couple of recovery days.

    By train and bus to Horby via Lund

    March 19, 2014 in Sweden

    I had booked an AirBnB stay in Horby before leaving, and the homeowner sent me detailed instructions of how to take the train from Copenhagen to Lund and catch the bus to near her house. If you've ever seen the TV series The Bridge, it is set on this road/rail bridge connecting Denmark and Southern Sweden.

    I had some time to fill in Lund, so wandered around and visited a couple of very interesting museums. The university there is world-famous, but students everywhere have a wicked sense of humor, as evidenced by what had been done to the statue of Linnaeus next to the city library.Read more
