    Söderkoping, Göta Canal

    June 8, 2017 in Sweden ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    We filled and emptied the van in the pouring rain before continuing to make our way towards Stockholm. Söderkoping provided a free car park next to the Göta canal where our stay was limited to a maximum of 4 hours before 6pm and 4 hours after 8am. This allowed us to arrive in the afternoon and stay until noon the following day.

    We had a little look along the moorings which were being used by a couple of yachts and a river cruiser. The town was unremarkable but there was an icecream café along the canalside that sold everything from a simple cone to a icecream trophy cup through to a bucket full of different flavours, steaming with dry ice. Having treated ourselves to a lot of meals out in Gothenburg we managed to resist temptation!

    Before we left the following morning we took the tandem along the towpath. It was warm but the skies above were steely and threatening. On our travels certain flowers seem to predominate in certain countries. We will always associate France with red Field Poppies and Germany with blue Cornflowers. Sweden's flower is definitely the Lupin. Pink, purple, cream and blue varieties fill motorway verges with swathes of colour and along the Göta canal we passed a little cottage whose garden was full of them; beautiful!

    The locks (all electronically operated) were overflowing with the recent heavy rain but the gravel surface had drained well so cycling wasn't a problem until the bike started almost groaning at us very insistently as we peddled hard uphill. We stopped to check it and found 6 spokes were broken and the back wheel buckled - must have been all those delicious Swedish buns Vicky had been scoffing! We were able to carefully ride it back to the van before the heavens opened but we wouldn't be able to use it again until we got replacement spokes.

    Boot fahren

    August 19, 2017 in Sweden ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Mit Papa und Götz ging es nach Håskö. die Insel hat zwei große Täler, die saftiges Gras beinhalten, was die Kühe von Håskö sehr zu schätzen wissen. Wir sonnten uns am Bootshaus im Westen der Insel und erkundeten die kleine Insel.

    Bootsausflug in Sankt Anna

    July 20, 2017 in Sweden ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Mit einem Ruderboot ausgestattet - ein Motorboot wollten sie uns nicht mehr geben nachdem wir uns als "Laien" geoutet hatten - sind wir auf die nächstgelegenen Schäreninseln gerudert. Die Strömung war uns nicht immer wohl gesonnen - sogar die Kinder mussten anpacken.

    Söderköping - Götakanal

    July 21, 2017 in Sweden ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Der Göta Kanal ist eine der bekanntesten und meist besuchten Touristenattraktionen Schwedens und wurde zum Schwedischen Bauwerk des Jahrtausends ernannt. Der Göta Kanal erstreckt sich von Mem an der Ostsee bis Sjötorp am Vänersee und ist 190 km lang mit 58 Schleusen. Der Göta Kanal ist vom Mai bis September geöffnet.

    In Söderköping ist auch das bekannteste Glacé-Restaurant von ganz Schweden. Um an das Eis zu kommen, muss man aber mitunter mehrere Stunden anstehen....Wir haben es nicht gemacht!
