Gothenburg.. in typically Swedish weather…

Day 1 in Gothenburg is easy to summarize: WET!

I slept long – especially considering I slept in a tent – and just after I finally got around to leaving for the city, it started raining. I don’t think it stopped for one minute for the remainder of that day.. I had foreseen some rain – I was actually carrying a raincoat – but not like this.. The end result is that I’ve already wasted my favorite pair of summer shoes.. it will take them a few days to dry, that ‘s for sure. Not much else worth saying about that day.. just that I managed to setup the rain shelter on my own.. not an easy feat considering the thing has like 6 poles which tend to fall over if you have set up none yet or only a couple.

On the road again

This is it! I’m on the road again in Scandinavia. Same countries as last time, different places – at least some of them.. đŸ™‚

The idea is to head towards Trondheim in Norway and then slowly head back via Ă–stersund and possibly good old Karlskrona.. I wonder if there’s anyone I know left, but I doubt it.. except maybe those working for the Uni itself, my mentor being the only one I still remember đŸ™‚ I think you’ve already guessed it by now.. I did the same amount of planning as last time: next to nothing! Sort of a guess about where I d like the trip to go and where to start it: Gothenburg. Next step were some randomly named cities on a map with some reserves nearby – Trondheim and Ă–stersund – and finally “oh maybe I can go by Karlskrona”. There it is: the thought through plan of this years road trip… đŸ™‚
