Jul 4, 2013 - Vibeck

Last day at Vibeck. Good news this morning that Harald can come home. Kajsa to collect him. We ventured off to Boda Borg which is a challenging game house. With respect for my age we restricted ourselves to the mental challenges apart from the Farm challenge and managed to get two stamps on our cards. Louise, David and Daniel will return next week to face the physical challenges without me! I know from experience that I cannot haul myself up through a box equivalent to an enclosed shower cabinet to the floor above! Lunch at a restaurant...

Jul 3, 2013 - Vibeck/Loka

Wednesday and Kajsa started the day with an early morning trip to the hospital where Harald is making some improvement. Hopefully he will be moved into a ward today. Kajsa had arranged a day at Loka, a luxurious spa resort which has had facilities upgraded recently. Collecting towel, robe (and a new swimsuit for me) we enjoyed the new pool now an infinity pool with view to the lake, several bubbling spa pools, two saunas, one steam room and total luxury; even a couple of chandeliers above the pool and many relaxing couches around. Buffet...

Jul 2, 2013 - Vibeck near Karlskoga

We were all anxious about Harald; Kajsa had phoned the hospital early morning - temperature still up and he is still in intensive care. After breakfast we went into Karlskoga to shop; David and I prowled the supermarket looking at the origin of various fruits and vegetables, trying to identify some foods (black sticks later identified by Kajsa as poor man's asparagus) searched for duck legs for David's cooking night and translated prices. Kajsa and Louise then went to the hospital while we did some shopping and looking in the town,...

Jul 1, 2013 - Stockholm to Vibeck (Karlskoga)

Took the train from Stockholm Central to Degafors where Harald met us. Louise was aware that he had spent a couple of days in hospital but now Ok apart from a rash due to allergy from a drug. Had a lovely lunch (of course) and went for a walk to Lunedet. All except Harald meandered along the lake and past the animal farm to the edge of the forest where Harald planned to meet us at the car park before walking in the forest but he did not arrive. Kajsa phoned and he said he didn't feel well so she went home and we followed about an hour later...

Jun 1, 2010 - Helsinki to Karlstad

Today we caught the bus to Karlstad. This was a bit of a random destination we had selected. First, it was on the way to Oslo, we did not want to spend eight hours on a bus, and we wanted to stop at a smaller town. So we arrived in Karlstad around 4:15, about a 4 and a half hour bus ride. Bus was good, with internet on board as usual. After checking a map at the bus station we walked to our hotel a few blocks away. We dropped our bags and headed down to the information centre to collect some maps and info. Karlstad looks quite nice, the...
