Travelling day (part 1)

13/07/19 – another day of traveling by car along Sweden’s highways has come to an end. We’re right before Stockholm but won’t drive through the city. I’ve been there a couple years ago with my friends from the AT. It’s a great City and has very cool people and places. But we figured that, since we are living in a bigger city back home, that we better skip it this time and shoot for a town located little further north, called Uppsala.

That’s where we headed since this morning. After 5.5 hours of driving we stopped for the night at another camp ground along the way. Tomorrow we will go all the way and then stop there for (at least) two nights.

That will also be the mental “starting point” for me, personally. From here on I’ll call it rather an adventure then a road trip.

I expect it to be more and more lonely the closer to abisko we get. No highways anymore and a lot more of the awesome nature one can easily find over here. I can’t wait to see more of it soon. On the way up here I got spoiled from what I could see through the windshield ahead of me.

Damn I should use my camera more often. I will, I promise. As soon as there is something to take a picture of… 😉

Oh yeah, by the way, I slept way better last night in my tent. Even though there was a bump in my back, again. Not as big as the one the night before, but still noticed it. No complains but the ugly truth 😛

The family is doing good and our overall mood has slightly increased I think. We’re adjusting better and better. Also some of the needed routines have established now which helps a lot to speed things up.

This morning we managed to get up early and packed within 2,5 hours. We left camp 20 before 10am and got moving. First stop was due after 10 minutes at the next gas station.

Always fill up before you leave!

This day has brought a lot of new things. Finally seeing a first glimpse on what comes up was very nice 🙂 driving for too long isn’t good for us since we go nuts then.

Camp is calming down slowly besides some kids that are still up loudly at the playground, olderly guys playing boccia and neighbors retiring to their tents, campervans, caravans and motorhomes.

Still too many Germans around…at least for my liking.

Life is good 🙂

Good night guys!
