  • Day5

    Dinner am Meer

    May 23 in Sweden

    Unseren nächsten Schlafplatz müssen wir nicht bezahlen - und wenn, dann wäre er unbezahlbar. Wir sind nämlich direkt am Meer, um uns herum nichts und niemand außer Wiese, Bäume und das endlose Blau.
    Pasta Pesto und ein paar Schwedische Craft Beer zum Abendessen, fertig ist ein perfekter Abend.

    Fahrradtour durch Malmö

    May 23 in Sweden

    Auf unserem Weg nach Südschweden machen wir Station in Malmö.
    Schnell den Bulli geparkt schwingen wir uns auf die Räder und erkunden die Gegend. Nach den ersten Minuten wird klar, dass es ohne Essen erstmal nicht weiter geht. Also suchen wir uns ein Café mit Brücken Blick und bestellen gegen den Hunger Fisch und Bruschetta.

    Danach drehen wir eine Runde, knapp 2 h an allen Sehenswürdigkeiten vorbei und enden in der Markthalle in der wir uns mit schwedischem Craft Beer für den Abend eindecken.Read more

    Die Reise der Wildgänse

    September 16, 2017 in Sweden

    Auch wenn wir zur Zeit an einem Ort bleiben, ist das Thema "Reisen" präsent. Hier im kleinen Ort Borstahusen am Öresund scheint ein Eldorado für Kanadagänse zu sein. Besonders morgens und abends fliegen diese zu hunderten in typischer V-Formation über und an uns vorbei zu den Sandbänken am Strand. Ständig landen neue Gänse und gesellen sich schnatternd und manchmal streitend zu den anderen. Manche schwimmen grüppchenweise eine kleine Bucht weiter. Das Kommen und Gehen nimmt kein Ende. Wo die wohl herkommen und hinwollen? Ursprünglich sind Kanadagänse ja in Nordamerika ansässig. Aber vielleicht gefällt Ihnen dort der Chef derzeit nicht...?
    Wer weitere Informationen zur Reiseroute von Kanadagänsen hat, möge das bitte kommentieren! 🐝

    Vom Tennismekka zum Öresund

    September 13, 2017 in Sweden

    Wir sind noch da... und wohlauf!
    Im Tennismekka Båstad, das ein bisschen wie "das schwedische Kampen/Sylt" imponierte, sassen wir einen hartnäckigen Regenhalbtag im Wohnmobil aus. Immerhin mit direktem Meerblick am Yachthafen und selbst fabrizierten kulinarischen Genüssen.
    Am nächsten Tag gondelten wir mit Hymi bei strahlendem Sonnenschein in die Nähe von Landskrona, nach Borstahusen, wo wir auf einem sehr komfortablen Campingplatz am Meer eincheckten und seither ausgiebig dem Müssiggang frönen. 2 Golfplätze liegen in fussläufiger Entfernung. Wir machen nun also "Ferien vom Reisen" (echt!) und lassen unsere vielen Stationen und Erlebnisse Revue passieren. Ausser uns verschnaufen hier auf vorgelagerten Sandbänken noch unzählige Kanadagänse, deren typischer Ruf uns täglich begleitet. Am Horizont blitzt je nach Wetter die unglaubliche Öresundbrücke auf, die Schweden und Dänemark seit ihrem Bau enger aneinander gebunden hat. Aufgrund der kurzen Entfernung nach Kopenhagen liegen wir hier auch in der Einflugschneise des internationalen Flughafens. Unser aktueller Standort erfüllt also alle Kriterien eines Wegkreuzes. Die Kultur kommt auch nicht zu kurz, denn Landskrona ist Gastgeber eines Foto Festivals, welches wir heute besuchten.
    Nächste Woche planen wir noch einen Stopp in Malmö bevor wir mit der Fähre nach Deutschland übersetzen.

    Malmö - klein aber oho

    August 24, 2017 in Sweden

    Eine saubere Dusche und ein mega bequemes Bett - mehr braucht es nicht um uns zu begeistern. Das alles dank des STF Hostels, das wir nur jedem weiterempfehlen können. Gestärkt machten wir uns auf den Weg in den Park, wo wir eine alte Windmühle und süße angelegte Gärten entdeckten. Anschließend besichtigten wir das Malmöhus (Burganlage mit verschiedenen Museen). Nach anfänglicher Skepsis, ob es sich lohnt reinzugehen, warfen wir schließlich doch noch einen Blick auf die Preise uuund SPOILERALARM es war ein Schnäppchen.
    Von einem Aquarium und einer Tierausstellung bis hin zu einem Kunstmuseum und dem Schloss an sich gab es für jeden Geschmack etwas zu sehen. Es hat sich also wirklich gelohnt...
    Danach ging's ab zum Strand und ganz nach dem Motto 'When hours feel like seconds' verbrachten wir den ganzen Tag an der Copacabana Malmös, dem Ribersborgsstranden. Ein wunderschöner Strand mit Blick auf den Turning Torso und die bekannte Öreesundbrücke. Weite Stege ins Meer hinaus, auf denen man alle seine Sorgen vergisst.
    Nachdem wir ganz die Zeit vergessen hatten machten wir uns auf den weg in die Altstadt, die sich wirklich sehen lassen kann. Alte Häuser und Kleinstadtflair - nette Leute und bezaubernde Cafés. So würden wir Malmö beschreiben.
    Fazit: Malmö ist perfekt für einen Tagesausflug geeignet. Fernab von den Touristen-Hotspots ist Malmö für uns klein aber oho. ♥

    Arriving in Sweden!

    May 27, 2017 in Sweden

    Today was Day 7 of our big trip to Sweden and there were 403km left to Gothenburg. The sun rose early and the day grew hot quickly. Fortunately the blown air in the van provided relief once we got going.

    We skirted around Copenhagen, through the 4km Drogden tunnel under the sea, surfacing at the artificial island of Peberholm before climbing up on to the 7.8km long Øresund Bridge, the longest combined road and rail bridge in Europe. Funnily enough it is a lot shorter than the 18km road bridge we took yesterday, but it was still a cool experience, especially when we entered Sweden while still on the bridge! It was one we payed for, the toll being 720DKK or £90!

    There were a few changes we noticed when driving along the motorway; the different road signs, the many red painted barns and a few red houses sitting on the edge of fields, we even saw a couple of classic wooden windmills.

    Denmark's motorway rest areas had been relatively frequent and well layed out with good facilities. It seemed a long time before we came accross one one in Sweden and when we did it was packed. There weren't any van services as there had been in Denmark and there weren't many marked bays, so people made up their own system (to give them credit it was a sensible one). Picnic tables had been provided, but there was a lot of noise from engines and people shouting to make themselves heard. The area looked grimy with litter so we stayed in to eat lunch.

    We saw a few IKEAs and there were a lot of McDonalds, KFCs and Burger Kings along the way. We'd been worried about the cost of living in Sweden so were pleased to find a Lidl and to discover that the prices weren't too exorbitant.

    There is often a lot to take in when entering a new country and our Lidl shop was our first experience of brushing shoulders with the Swedes. Many seemed taller than we were used to and it was a very quiet atmosphere.

    There was beer, but no wine or spirits; these are only sold at government-run shops. All the cans and bottles had deposits included in the price and there were machines where you could return them at the entrance. Alongside the beer, which was all under 3.5%, there were energy drinks, with signs telling us that only those of 15 years or older could by them. The cigarettes in the cabinet by the checkout had a minimum purchase age of 25.

    Country specific products included giant circular crispbreads and pitta-like breads packaged up and sold as an ordinary loaf. Something we've not seen in Lidl in any other country was a sweety pic'n'mix counter! It brought back memories of the Woolworths shop at our summer holiday destination in the 1980s and 90s, Stranraer in SW Scotland.

    We found home for the night at an elongated car park, quite near the road and some woods in Ängelholm. We'd done 166km but felt shattered.

    Exploring Ängelholm

    May 28, 2017 in Sweden

    There is a video of us exploring Ängelholm on VnW Travels' YouTube channel here: https://youtu.be/f-SiioONtSw

    There were just 225km between us and Gothenburg so we decided to give ourselves a break and stay 2 nights at Ängelholm. The afternoon we arrived was warm, so we set out walking along the well signed trails through the woods to the beach. The sun filtered between the tall tree trunks and full foliage. Tiny white, star shaped flowers sprinkled the floor which was soft and springy with fallen needles. The gentle smell of the pines infused the air but there was a good mix of coniferous and deciduous trees. The only downside were the mosquitos who bit us if we stayed still for more than a few seconds! After about half an hour the path became considerably sandier and we emerged to low dunes covered with spiky marram grass. Down some wooden stairs and we were on the beautiful sandy beach, scattered with sun bleached shells. The water was clear and there wasn't even a hint of the smell of rotting weed this time. Will enjoyed his swim and Vicky had a good paddle. Evening was coming on so instead of braving the mosquitos in the woods we made our way back along the beach and up the quiet road. We even saw a slow worm slithering away at the side of the pavement and a red squirrel scampering along low branches, just a few meters from us, its rich rust coloured coat almost glowing in the evening light.

    The following day we took the tandem along the cycle tracks to Ängelholm. It was a good sized town but we again noticed that quiet atmosphere we'd picked up on when shopping yesterday. There was a feeling of space with a pedestrianised central area and while there were a few decorative touches, such as a fountain, planters with yellow and orange pansies and a small town park on the outskirts, you got the sense things had been designed with practicality and purpose in mind. We didn't need anything but we took a look round the government-run off licence, the only place allowed to sell alcohol stronger than beer. The drinks were nicely set out and every one displayed their country of origin. The cheapest wine we could find was £6 a bottle so we were very glad Will had cut down significantly on his weekly intake!

    Vistorp's Harbour

    May 30, 2017 in Sweden

    It was a short hop to Vistorp's Harbour where we were able to stay in the car park of a Nature Reserve (for a maximum of 24 hours). We could see why this restriction was in place; it was very close to a sandy beach and the low dunes had a stark beauty to them. Shrub roses were dotted with large bright pink flowers, paler pink Thrift grew in drifts and the Wild Pansies were so small you could only see them if you stopped and looked. Close up, the colours of the flowers stood out intensely against the washed out sand and grasses in this harsh environment.

    There were only a few boats moored in the small harbour, where the smell of the sea was once again strong! The temperature had cooled so Will opted to sit on the end of the boardwalk and fish. We had a wander through the reserve where there were a few holiday homes and a couple of tasteful beach huts. At the next car park along there were well kept toilets and Will was able to empty our cassette.

    In the afternoon the sky turned a dark grey and the rain came on and off. It felt more like the sort of holidays we were used to in Scotland and we were quite happy watching the wildlife from inside the comfort of the van. We even spotted a Great Grey Shrike, a small bird we weren't familiar with but that seemed friendly as it perched on a rock to check us out!

    Malmo

    August 23, 2017 in Sweden

    So the number one thing to do here in Malmo was a bridge.. that takes you out of Malmo..

    Maybe not the best advertisement

    We came to Malmo in between Stockholm and Stockholm as it is Swedens third biggest city and the ability to visit Copenhagen. So I suppose in that respect the bridge was the best thing for us to do here too!

    Apart from the bridge we saw the old town which pales in comparison to Stockholm. But, Malmo does have some beautiful parks, where we had a picnic and a good walk on the first day we arrived. We even stumbled across a windmill.

    Possibly the best find of the day was the English Shop where they stock everything English at a high price.. including an interesting description of marmite :)

    From here back to Stockholm now to pick up Hannah and Luke 😁

    Lillsjön & Lärkesholmssjön Woodland

    September 13, 2017 in Sweden

    Will had scoured Park4Night and found us a lovely spot to spend our last couple of nights in Sweden. At the end of a 1km grit track we parked up in a small woodland clearing in between two lakes; Lillsjön (the little lake) and Larkesholmssjön (the larger one). On Lillsjön's shore was a firepit with grill and a store of split logs keeping dry under a specially made shelter. We were tempted with a fire but the wet weather both nights put paid to that idea! We had parked under a large Beech tree and on the day we arrived, it rained so heavily that it sounded as if pebbles were being thrown on to the van roof!

    Luckily, despite thunderstorms being forecast for the second day, it turned out dry and we were even treated to some spells of sunshine! A few walkers and joggers were lured out by this fine Swedish weather but the area remained incredibly quiet. We decided to take the 6km marked trail around Lärkesholmssjön and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, savouring the peaceful lake and forest as we went. The path was well maintained but it seemed that even Sweden wasn't used to the amount of rain we'd had. The streams, river and bogs we crossed had burst their banks and as we waded through 30cm of water we were very glad we'd had the foresight to wear wellies!

    The forest was a mixture of mature Beech and pines, its floor carpeted with a bright green moss that almost seemed to glow in the shade of the trees. These areas were dotted with a myriad of fungi, from miniscule mushrooms only a few mm tall to thick bracket growths climbing up rotting trunks, looking sturdy enough to use as steps. As we approached the hamlet of Lärkesholm, we passed several boats and a canoe, hauled up on the grass. We love that people are able to leave their belongings in places such as these, with no locks or chains, trusting they will be safe.

    We returned to the van and enjoyed Will's home made pizza and some red wine for tea as is becoming our custom on the final night we spend in a country.
