The weather is very good. Today we drove ...
Today we started making our way back to Stockholm.
A day of driving with not much else to report
We made it to A 5 star campground in Arjang, Sweden. The Swedish and Australian views of 5 star seem wide apart. Because it's not yet start of the high season most things are not available.
Our room was relatively comfortable and warm.
