Flag of Sweden  , Skåne,
Sunday, August 1, 2010

Just over the border we find a secluded spot near a lake to camp. It feels like we are in the middle of no-where and as it turns out we are. Again everything is so quite and lacking humans. The country is so relaxed with not a care in the world. We find a roadside petrol station and discover free Internet and three hours later we emerge to visit an outdoor museum showing rock carvings from the bronze ages. They had been painted red to make it easy to see them.

We drive down to Grebbestad have a walk around, I venture off to walk a cliff that borders the town while Soz chills and relaxes with a book. After a long time driving south to find yet another free camping site we finally settle in the car-park of a nature reserve (Norden Ark) in Sontenas. We are assured by other camping vans (twice as big as us) that it is OK to stay the night. After dinner we bravely grab our touch and venture off for a walk along the river and into the woods. With Soren leading the way and Donna very very close behind, we head to see another group of rock carvings, these ones seem to be more interesting than the first ones we saw early that day, perhaps because we had to hunt for them in the dark. 

Off to Goteborg, a city of McDonald's (one every 500m) and streets and streets of shopping. We head to a museum with an exhibition on why people travel. We walked away feeling slightly guilty for our carbon omissions (which we will offset) and proud for the different lifestyle in different countries we have seen.

Soren has an Uncle who lives in Ekeby (near Helsingborg) we head down to spend a few days. Uncle Axel is very welcoming, it was great to meet him. He was good company and we hope to have him in Australia one day soon. 
The next day we visited Helsingborg, Lund and Malmo. One day is enough for all of these towns. They never seem to wake up, Malmo was the busiest but it was a Sunday and nothing was open.

We return the Malmo the next morning to cross the sea to Copenhagen. This bridge is absolutely amazing in innovation and design. A bridge that goes into a tunnel. About half way across the river there is a small island that turns into a tunnel which popes out in Copenhagen. 

All for now...
