Traveling stats

05/08/19 – after we’ve spent about 5 days close to Stockholm (and also visited the city for a day) we took of once again this morning and made another “jump” further down south on our way back home. This time we stopped close to Jönköping at a nice nature camp ground. We will stay here for another week until we have to leave to catch the ferry back to Germany. As of now we’ve traveled over 5000km and have another 1000km ahead of us on our way back home. We…

Heading back (slowly)

31/07/19 – we’re close to Stockholm now after a longer ride yesterday which took us about 6 hours of driving for roughly 500kms further down south. We stopped at a camp ground last night and headed out this morning. We thought about staying there because the place by itself was really beautiful… But besides of the great view there wasn’t much that could convince us to stay a little longer. For some reasons most of the places we’ve stayed at felt a little old or hadn’t had enough showers /…

Taking it easy now

24/07/19 – 500km down south, almost half of the way between lulea and umea, we found a great new camp ground where we now will stay at for a good week. 2 days ago we took of from Kiruna heading back where we came from. It’s been amazing even though the weather wasn’t as good as here. Rain, high winds and the never setting sun took a toll on us. So we packed up and left around lunch time and got to our stop in between kiruna and here where…

Traveling day (part 2)

14/07/19 – today has been another beautiful Drive in Sweden’s amazing countryside. Luckily there weren’t as many highway sections as there were the last couple days. Reducing the pace and being able to stop here and there felt great. First we’ve left the flat part as a guy at the last gas station it has described. So we made our way into the rolling hills on our way to Uppsala. The pine trees and rocks and Meadows reminded me hard of parts of New England on the AT and also…

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…

Sweden, finally

12/07/19 – the day off was good. For so many reasons like taking a good ol nap early afternoon, being at the beach twice today or the opportunity to learn something new all day long, it’s been a great day. Last night after writing the today’s blog post, I tried to go to sleep. As I’ve set up the awning, I’m sleeping on the floor of it and not in my tent. Because that’s easier that way. Not too much work, you know. So I put on some deet and…

Denmark to Sweden

11/07/19 – we’ve arrived at our first camp ground in Sweden’s Malmö today around 3pm after like 5 hours of driving through Denmark. To be honest, that was stunningly beautiful. Just by driving on the highway. Amazing. I woke up this morning to the sound of rain drops on my tent. Still tired I began to move. Slowly I got out and started my to-do list for this morning. Packing up everything around us and put those items back to an appropriate place, having a small breakfast before going back…

Germany to Denmark (update)

07/07/19 – the last two days went by pretty quickly. I was busy getting the caravan ready for our journey ahead. Even though we’ve packed up most of our stuff almost a week ago there were still some last items that need to be on board before leaving. Cleaning up the Appartment roughly was part of that as well. We set out around 10 this morning with our first stop on the way to the polar circle after about 350km (200 miles). Technically I’m able and allowed to drive at…
