After breakfast we returned to the room for awhile. I looked at my toe that I had stubbed before going to breakfast. It hurt, but looked ok. We were on the road by 9:00 leaving Stockholm on the E4 headed for the E22, the scenic route. We made a rest stop after an hour and a half at a service area. we then continued on to our lunch stop at the Gota Canal.
