We're in Kalmar for a few days, en route to Trelleborg where we'll get the ferry to Rostock in Germany. Kalmar has been a delightful surprise, a lovely town with it's greatest claim to fame being Kalmar Castle, which has been around in some shape or form since 1180.

This is a small glass factory with a museum and shop. There was no work happening because it was Sunday, so we will stop again for a short time tomorrow.
