    Richtung Västeras Mälaren

    June 19 in Sweden ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Hier stehe ich auf einem Parkplatz, der zu einem Strand führt, dieser ist megavoll und hat einen sehr flachen Einstieg. Nebenan ne Bude für Pommes und Eis, sowie saubere Toiletten, fein. War ei n bisschen baden, danach ne. Runde laufen, schöne Runde um d irre Insel, da gab es dann noch ein Strand, etwas gechillter, weniger. Kinder. Habe heute einen steifen Nacken bekommen, shit, warm halten. Hier sind n je Familien unterwegs und es ist midsummer, alle grillen, ich auch y n jedoch alleine. Alleinsein bemerkt man eher, wenn man unter vielen ist. Ich glaube ich mag Mom lieber alleinsein allein. Kontakt zu den Einheimischen schwierig, da alles Gross Familien, aber gut, fahre gleich von diesem wunderschönen Platz zu einem Stellplatz am Mörckelsee, da sind dann camper.. 😀Read more

    Bergslagen

    June 16, 2019 in Sweden ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Inzwischen ist die Landschaft recht hügelig geworden. Weniger Seen, dafür zahlreiche, inzwischen meist stillgelegte Gruben, in denen Zink, Eisen und Kupfer abgebaut wurde. Alles sehr bewaldet.Es gibt viel zu entdecken:Read more

    Day 470: Engelsberg Mine

    May 30, 2018 in Sweden ⋅ 🌙 14 °C

    Reasonable sleep in the tent this time, so we loaded up and headed off in good time. The mine itself was actually quite underwhelming, as there wasn't much left of it other than some old buildings and we largely couldn't visit it. Oh well!

    We spent a couple of hours there filming the buildings and doing the best we could, but I think it's going to be a short video!

    Afterwards we headed north to the town of Falun, location of our next World Heritage site, where we made camp for the night.

    Schatten gesucht

    July 24, 2018 in Sweden ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Sitze auf einer Autobahnraststätte und suche verzweifelt Schatten und Abkühlung. Der Thermometer zeigt 28° Celsius an. Die Idee, über Landstrassen nach Stockholm zu fahren, habe ich schnell verworfen. Die Fahrtgeschwindigkeit reicht zum Abkühlen nicht aus.Read more

    Ikea

    July 30, 2018 in Sweden ⋅ 🌧 24 °C

    Kadrile väga meeldivad IKEA poed, seega nagu juba traditsiooniks saanud (iga kord kui Soomes või Rootsis oleme), tuli ka nüüd käia.

    Kohe alguses läksime IKEA sööklasse sööma, sest meil jäi hommikusöök vahele. IKEAs on väga odav süüa võrreldes ülejäänud riigiga - minu kanafilee maksis midagi 7€ ja Kadri lihapallid 6€ ning maitsesid ka hästi.

    IKEAs on päris põnevaid leide aeg-ajalt - peab isegi mõtlema, et misasi see olla võib.

    Anundshög

    May 31, 2019 in Sweden ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Bevor es für uns auf unseren heutigen Campingplatz geht, nutzen wir das milde Wetter, um einer der bekanntesten Steinsetzungen in Schweden einen Besuch abzustatten: Anundshög.

    Die Steine sind über ein relativ kleines Areal verteilt und der zentral aufgeschüttete Hügel bietet einen wunderbaren Überblick über die verschiedenen Schiffe, Tings und Sonnenkreise.

  • Day4

    Västerås, Sweden

    May 6, 2016 in Sweden ⋅ 🌙 7 °C

    Day 3:

    Today we left Stockholm on a short bus and train ride to meet with Danielle's family in Västerås. On leaving the train station, we caught a glimpse of the large park in the city, as well as viking ruins on the way out to the country. Arriving at Owe and Anette's house, it was as if we were transported into a fairy tale! A handmade wooden fence specific to Dalarna fashion lines the entrance to the garden, which contains a state-protected sacrificial altar of some sort from the Vikings. The buildings are all painted in the classic red color with white trim, modeled after the early 19th century soldier's house on the property.

    After taking some much-needed time to soak up the beauty of the countryside, we experienced the true meaning of "fika" for the first time. It thankfully set a new pace, in contrast to the fast-moving city. The afternoon soon turned to night amidst conversation, beers, sausages, family trees, a phenomenal dinner, and us failing miserably at Swedish pronunciations... It has been a long, but fulfilling day and we can't wait to see what is in store for tomorrow in Grängesberg.

    Godnatt!

    Västerås, Sweden

    May 8, 2016 in Sweden ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Day 5:

    Today we had an easy going day walking around both the old and new parts of Västerås. We were able to visit a beach and boardwalk that Owe helped create along the water. The river through the town is home to the first hydroelectric plant of its kind. There is also a very interesting artist in town who makes very strange hotels... he has one in the sea that looks like an outhouse on the water, but underneath the water, there is a glass room for 2. There is also a treehouse hotel, and his current project is an attempt to put a typical Swedish farmhouse on the moon! The first flowers of the season are blooming and Danielle's family has told us that the green that we are seeing now is a very special color that can only be seen for a couple of weeks each year as the leaves are sprouting, before they are fully developed and darker. It is a beautiful time of the year that we are very lucky to be able to experience. The way the Swedes would describe the day... lagom. Just the right amount. Its how they do everything. Not in excess, but not too little. Its a beautiful thing!Read more
