Travelling with the Kirkhams travel blog




Sunday 23rd

We arrived in Malmo, Sweden yesterday by taking the train (we weren't allowed to cycle)over the spectacular bridge that spans the straight between it and Copenhagen. Malmo is a lovely place that is obviously benefiting from the bridge with new buildings going up in the Swedish style ie clean, well designed and efficient. We spent the evening watching the sun going down over Copenhagen radiating a beautiful red glow onto the bridge - shame I can't get the picture to go on isn't it?

Today we've had a really hard day battling against the wind for 58 miles along the southern most edge of Sweden. We just got our tent pitched in time to beat a thunder storm that had been chasing us. We bought smoked fish and prawns from a small fishkery en route and ate them with newly dug potatoes from a lady who warned us about the storm - delicious.

There aren't as many camp sites here as Denmark as you are allowed to camp anywhere within reason. We may try that tomorrow if the weather is ok.

Good things so far about Sweden

They take credit cards- Denmark doesn't.

It is sunny (hope I haven't jinked that!)

People seem nice and still geared up for cycling though not to the same extent as Denmark.

Wok tip of the day - cooked up fabulous Swedish meatballs with fresh pasta and rich tomato and mushroom sauce last night - the power of the wok goes on despite it's now being dented!
