Holiday in Scandanavia

Previous day - Next day

Nävekvarn (S) to Hult (S)

Wednesday 10 august 2005

This morning woke up early, around 06:00. Yesterday evening it started to rain and even thunder. During the night the rain kept falling.
In the morning we first packed up our gear when it was a bit drier. Afterwards we wanted to shower, but there was no more power. Probably a lightning strike somewhere. Unfortunatly the showers are controlled by a box that takes the coins, and those need electricity, so no showers. Did some breakfast instead.

We decided to leave early. Drove of around 08:00. After around 200 meters we had our first obstacle, a lorry that was unloading!

The first part of the journey we had nice weather. Not too hot and dry. Around 08:30 we arrived at the first ferry fo the day. This one was also free again :).

After the ferry found a nice but of road with lots of bends (click on the picture for a movie).


Then, just before 09:00 we arrived at the second ferry for the day. And again, it was free!

We found some interesting things on tomtom today. We got the instruction to go left on this road:

Around noon we found a nice parking spot in the sun so we could let our tents dry and pack everything up. After we had lunch. When we drove a couple of kilometers it started to poor with rain. Nice timing :)

We set course to Linköoping, to visit the flygvapen museum. Through the pooring rain we ran from the parking lot to the museum. To our surprise entry was free! Below some pictures of the planes on display.

After the museum we set course to Hult. Around 16:15 we arrived at the last fery for the day. Atleast, we say a ferry, tomtom saw a road.

This ferry only goes once every 30 minutes and costs 30 crownes per car. After waiting for about 15 minutes we could finally get on!

Around 18:00 we arrived in Hult on the campsite.

As usually the receptionist informed about our cars. This one was a bit different though. She asked what brand the Elise was, but she allready recognized that the other one was an Opel (that doesn't happen often :).

Fortunatly they had a cabin left for a reasonable price, so we took that one.

After we did some shopping at the local Ica, made dinner and talked for a bit. Then we hit the showers (missed them this morning). Finished off by updating the website and planning the route for tomorrow. Then it was off to bed.
