    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. In 1397 the Kalmar Union was signed inside the castle, the Union was the first formal agreement between, Denmark, Norway and Sweden. It was initiated by Queen Margaret whose intention was to ...

It had been a good week, we all (I think) enjoyed it and they are certainly welcome back again sometime in the future, should they wish to, that is!

    Once they’d ...

    ... castle. As we had visited the castle in the company of Jeff and Greta Layton on 26th May 2012 (see blog) we’d decided that it would be a better use of our time if we did boat-stuff, cleaning, maintenance and the like. One rather worrying result of my boat maintenance was that I found that the gearbox’s oil level had dropped. There is a dipstick for the gearbox and I check the level every week to ten days and not once, in ...

    ... thought at first that folks were selling rabbits, but it seemed that if there were that many rabbits for sale, the market wouldn’t be sustainable – soon, EVERYONE would have surplus rabbits. Actually, these signs represent one of the Swedes’ favorite pastimes – yard sale! So, although sorely tempted, we managed to not stop at any of those until we saw one saying “Atikvariet” – yup, real antiques. We managed to resist ...
