Fritids Metropolen StallplatsJune 17, 2017 in Sweden ⋅
Vicky had a new phone that Sue and John had brought over when they visited. With a limited amount of data, downloading apps and transferring content would be tricky so we chose to stay at a 165 SEK (£16.50) a night 'stallplats' run by a motorhome dealer that had inclusive wifi. It was effectively a back yard next to a ploughed field but it had communal cabin with free use of a toilet and lovely shower. We also sneaked a go of the washing machine that we found later we should have paid for!
Setting up the new phone took a long time but we also made full use of the data by glutting ourselves on YouTube travel videos, especially those focused on Norway, our next country! The price of the night's stay was worth paying for us for the use of the wifi, shower and washing machine, but we were shocked when we translated a sign stating there was no toilet emptying and they hoped we would understand! No, we didn't really understand a camping stopover charging £16.50 and not providing a basic facility such as this!Read more
