Where I stayed
Wiggersvik's camping & Stugor

Flag of Sweden  , Västra Götaland County,
Monday, September 7, 2009

We woke up to oh my gosh a very long sleep! Jasper had slept through from 10pm to 5:30am, wow he hadn't done that since baby sing-a-long! It must be all that fresh swedish air. Unfortunately the gorgeous sunshine had disappeared and in its place was lots of cloud! It felt about 18 degrees rather than the 23 degrees of the afternoon before:( After a sleep in by all and Jasper getting up at half ten ( why does he only do this on holidays?) we packed up camp and headed up north via Goteburg. Ahh but not before Kenny heard a crunch. Oops he had accidentally ran over the Maclaren which we had left under the van to give us more room!! So when we got to Goteburg he had to do a quick repair job which of course he thoroughly enjoyed. He had it fixed in under 10 minutes! Bit slower than F1 but he had the bent axle sorted and we were ready to go.

We didn't stay long in Goteburg just a stop off to get some lunch but its a vast harbour city with massive ships and cranes along its waterfront. We found the main boulevard in town and picked up some food. Some very strange and extremely LOUD horns sounded just nearby. We couldn't figure out what it was, but Jasper was none too impressed by it and the locals were particularly amused. It sounded like huge fog horns going off right next to us.

We then headed up north with the rain now setting in to our camp site destination of Wiggersvik's Camping and Stugor in Kungshamn. We travelled through some gorgeous landscape along the way, dramatic valleys and rivers. We found our campsite very easily and it was right on the water, lovely and scenic. I just hope this rain stops!

I must say Wiggersviks is a great campsite. Skrea was nice but the amenities were a little tired. Here we have all new facilities including a nursery room! Basically a room with a changing table, bath, little shower and kiddy toilet. They also have a state of the art dog shower and sauna/spa. We knew that the Swedes were family friendly and this definitely makes travelling with a 4 and a half month old much easier. We want one of the nursery rooms at our place back in London! LOL :)

It sounds lovely, what an amazing trip! It makes me jealous reading it, but I don't know if I could cope to travel with my 14 month old. It's hard enough being at home let alone travelling. Unlucky about the pushchair, although i'm sure it will be something you remember forever!
