    Stensjön lake

    June 2, 2017 in Sweden ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    Tomorrow we'd be meeting Will's sister Sue and our brother in law John at Landvetter airport near Gothenburg. We therefore wanted to stay somewhere close and being Sweden, there happened to be lakeside parking just 20 minutes from the airport!

    Stensjön lake is bordered by trees and a few houses. We chose a car park on the edge of a woodland estate. Despite the large numbers of people walking, running and cycling through, it was a quiet place, even when the groups of school children passed by the van! We can't imagine any British class making as little noise as these children did!

    Vicky set about cleaning the van and Will kept out of her way! We'd wondered how warm (and feared how cold) the lakes might be up here, but the water was a toasty 19°! Will walked round to the bathing beach and enjoyed a swim and a play with the GoPro camera underwater, although there wasn't much to see under there.

    One of Sweden's favourite foods is fish and one of the dishes we miss most is traditional fish'n'chips - (especially those from Netherton Fish Bar) so when evening came about, Will began making them. He can cook a lot of good meals, but the limited space in the van sometimes makes it difficult. We've currently got steamers from two different sets because they fit in the drawers. Unfortunately they don't fit well together and caused Will to spill a pan of hot fat over the hob and drawers. The tissues used to mop it up then set alight and Vicky returned to find them burning happily away on the gravel outside the van door! Needless to say it took significantly more time than planned to get the van spick and span for Sue and John's arrival the next day!

    Back to Stensjön Lake

    June 3, 2017 in Sweden ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Sue had been looking forward to canoeing with us, so we returned to Stensjön lake where we had stayed the night before last. On the way we dropped by a supermarket to pick up some goodies for lunch. A lot of Sweden's supermarkets have separate fish stalls outside, housed in units a bit like portocabins.

    There was a bit of a breeze but the sun was shining when we arrived at the lake so we packed up a couple of bags of food and had a picnic on a rocky platform at the shore.

    Next came canoeing! Sue was so keen she started paddling before Will even had a chance to get in! Brother and sister set off along the river and under the wooden bridge to circumnavigate the large adjoining lake. The canoeing widows John and Vicky knew they would be gone hours so John went for a stroll while Vicky sat on a bench at the beach with Poppy, relaxing in the warmth of the day. When the intrepid adventures finally came back, Vicky and John had their turn and paddled round the smaller (but still sizeable) lake. When they returned they found Will amd Sue had been unable to resist a swim in the lake and were ready for another. Once we'd acclimatised to the water temperature (see video) the four of us enjoyed a splash under the sky with the trees and rocks around the water line. The clouds even treated Vicky to a few spots of rain!

    Back at the van we turned the heating up, had a warming cuppa and some cinnamon and cardamom buns before taking a stroll along the river to the lake Sue amd Will had paddled round. Will cooked a meal of meatballs; a Swedish speciality, before we headed back to Gothenburg.

    Flucht ins sonnige Schweden

    August 1, 2017 in Sweden ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Nachdem wir das schöne und abwechslungsreiche Gent besichtigt und dort natürlich Pommes Frites gegessen und belgisches Bier getrunken haben, sind wir weiter in die Niederlande gefahren. Dort Wollten wir eigentlich ausgiebig Angeln, da verschiedene Websites von schier ungeheuerlichen Raubfischbeständen berichteten. Nachdem unser Mut jedoch durch das Ausbleiben jeglicher Anzeichen auf die beschriebenen Fische und das wechselhafte und immer wieder regnerische Wetter gebrochen wurde, verliessen wir das Land nach zwei Tagen wieder. Einen nennenswerten Fang konnten wir jedoch verbuchen: einen ca. 40cm langen Zander - den ersten in unserer bisherigen Fischer-Karriere.
    Nachdem wir in Dänemark einen Zwischenstopp zum Übernachten einlegten, sind wir weiter nach Schweden gefahren. Nach einer sehr teuren Nacht an der Küste sind wir nun auf dem Weg an einen See an der Norwegischen Grenze, wo wir erstmals auf unserer Reise ganze 3 Nächte verbringen werden.
