Day 6 … Sitting here in the Bunnybus at getting on for midnight and the sun is just setting. Not land of the midnight sun yet but I feel it getting closer.
Had a later, lazy start this morning. Chucked it down most of the night but awoke to a glorious sunny warm morning.
Took a little free ferry over the water and headed for Stockholm.
From what we saw of it Stockholm looks stunning. Definitely worth a proper visit next time. So many lakes and waterways. 30% of the city is water and 30% parks and green spaces. Apparently it’s known as the Venice of the North and is one of the cleanest cities in the world. Always had a thing for Norse mythology so no wonder I am loving Scandanavia.
Had a visit to Lidl’s, pricey but not too bad but no wine! Apparently it’s only sold in state controlled liquor shops.
Drive 361 miles yesterday so did less today, only 188. Stopped for a little break too at one of the many clean manicured picnic areas, often by a lake and mostly in the trees, hard not to be round here. Lol!
There are free areas to stay overnight but they seem to be either near the motorway/ main roads, or full by mid pm (that’s on this main route near Stockholm anyway) so we don’t mind paying a bit. Found a little marina on the Baltic to overnight (Sandarne Bortklubb).
This one was about £14 for the night. Nice facilities so did some boring but necessary clothes washing.
Mozzies though. Ugh. Not that they seem to bother me much when Chris is around. I must point out to him that he shouldn’t complain. He likes to think he is still a bit of a babe magnet, unfortunately the females he seems to be attracting round here are not of the human variety. Bless.
No Game of Thrones tonight. Just bed.
