Jul 3, 2011 - Sunday 3rd July

Woke up on the lounge feeling fine from the night before with Tommy and Nina. Tommy however said he was struggling and thought he was still drunk. We had actually gone through half of the 1l bottle of 12yo CC that I got through duty free and ½ carton but I really was feeling fine. We hung around and had breakfast with them and then drove back to marie and michaels for a shower. We took the Pontiac out again and went and visited Jen’s Grand parents who are in a nursing home not far away. Jens Grandad Robert is in a wheel chair after having...

Jul 2, 2011 - Saturday 2nd July

Got up and headed out to some shops that Jen wanted to have a look around. We got there at 9 and planed to have breakfast there but the shops here don’t open till 10 on Saturday- needless to say we had no problems finding a car park……. Not much there and we headed into Malmo which is the 3rd biggest town in Sweden. It is quite big and we went into a big shopping centre and for a wander down their mall (bit like Rundle mall). I did find a diesil shop but that is about it that I have liked so far. Been trying to find a wi fi modem but they...

Marie took Jen to the doctor and has to go back at 3:30 to see her again. Put our plans back a bit to see Jens dad as we were originally planning to be there at 3. Marie and Michael got the Pontiac out and we went for a drive to their shopping centre so Jen could have one of these tasty spuds that she goes on about at home all the time. Not really seeing to much at the shops that I like and there isn’t really too many brands that I recongnize either. Anyway, the Pontiac is great and Micheal loves driving it FAST. They don’t get it out very...

May 24, 2011 - Sweden - the next bit

Monday 23rd Had an amazing day today. Got up after a stormy night to be greeted by the sun and the air clarity so clean that it left you in wonder at the colour and the smells. Cycled north with the wind on our backs again – boy that makes such a difference through lovely countryside dotted with stone circles, castles and a king’s grave site at Kivik that was quite incredible and dated back over 3000 years. They actually think it was a sacrifice site as only teenage bones have been found. I didn’t really have any preconceptions of what this...

May 22, 2011 - Sweden first impressions

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...

Aug 17, 2010 - Helsingborg - Aug 15-17

August 15, 2010 We were leaving Copenhagen today and thankfully the rain had finally died down a bit. The owners of the hostel had mentioned that their basement room had flooded last night so it had obviously got heavier overnight, too. We packed up all of our stuff, had breakfast and then got the bus to the train station. After buying our tickets to Helsingor, about half an hour north of Copenhagen, we were told there were no trains running directly there as the line was flooded just outside the city. As a result we had to get a bus and...

Jun 14, 2010 - Sweden here we come

And so to the thing that Nick was looking forward to most. Crossing the mammoth Oresund Bridge from Denmark to Sweden – a 17km long engineering marvel. You’ll have seen it on “Megastructures”, or “How Do They Do That?” Or “Concrete Stuff That Only Boys Like” – one of those channel 5 programmes about things like this. It was amazing though. First there’s a tunnel to a man-made island just off the coast of Copenhagen, then the bridge starts and takes you all the way to Malmo. We were a bit nervous about entering Sweden as it has the strictest...

Jun 6, 2010 - Hasselholm

Made it into Hasselholm early evening unable to find a suitable campsite as it's mainly forestry and no water around. We tried but the picnic area we thought would be a good idea turned out to be a meeting place for other social activities! Not a place to pitch a tent! We decided on plan B and rode into town and found a cheap hotel (by Swedish standards).

May 23, 2010 - Leaving Malmo

Immanuel Church is praying hard to reach Malmo for Christ. Sweden has a heritage as a Christian nation, but there is little but agnosticism in Sweden these days. Immigrants are flooding into Sweden, and there is a tremendous need for people to hear the truth of Christ and experience his love. The worship service at Immanuel this morning centered around the life of King David. While David was far from perfect, he learned to pursue God with his whole heart. Even when David was confronted with what was probably the most horrible sins of his...

May 22, 2010 - Lily's Birthday Party

Today has been a relaxed Saturday. I slept in . . . and appreciate the opportunity. Joel led me on a long trek through his old home town. We walked through some horse trails, around town, and along the beach. I don't know what all of Sweden is like, but this Southern Burrough is beautiful. Sailboats were out in the ocean by the dozens. It's funny. Not sure how you can find so much good conversation when you come from such different worlds and different places in life, but have really enjoyed getting to know Joel, his parents, his wife and...
