ON THE ROAD AGAIN

Av EvaLena Hallgren - 22 juli 2013 14:52

It’s Monday and we’re back on the road, this time Mom’s cousin Birgitta came along. Before we left we stopped at one of her puppies house, and there was this gorgeous dog named Maulo sitting in the window.


 


Than Birgitta helped Mom to cut and sew the ragrug she found at a gargesale to fit the floor of Adrienne. It turned out awesome, and now it's not as cold on your feet.   


This time we’re heading away from the coast going inland, and for the first time we met reindeer on the road. Mom said I better get used to it, because there will be a lot more the further inland we get. You have to be careful, where ther's one there's usually more.....and they aren't very afraid of cars...........this guy was so skinny so we wondered if he really was ok..............


 


We stopped at a town called Örträsk,  there is the longest ropeway conveyor in the world. It’s 96 km built in the 1940s to trasport buckets of ore.  Between 1943 and 1987 this ropeway moved 12 million tons of ore concentrates containing copper, lead, zinc, sulfur, silver and gold. Most of the cableway is now demolished and the ore is transported by heavy trucks. About 13 km. was saved and gondolas now carry tourists over the treetops for a wilderness experience.
 
     
and here's a little train for the kids. Have to say it was pretty deserted in this area, only  a few German tourists around ..................
 
 
 
huge boulders are a common sight in the forests ..............remnants from the ice age....
 
 
 
 
Nothing was served at the restaurant at this time, guess you had to call ahead, but it sure was quaint
 
 
 
 
   Seen this bird in real life twice, but never quick enough with the camera, much easier to capture when they're stuffed......  
 
 
 
 
At night we parked next to an old town museum in a town called Lycksele, and here’s Birgittas first night..............hihi.............she's reading with a headlamp.....
 
 
 
 
In the morning we went browsing in the old area, and it was very interesting. This stuff is even older than Mom so she didn’t really recognize what the stuff was for, but there was signs and everything was truly remarkably well kept.
     
 
 
Mom tried walking on stilts, and did Ok, but she was a coward and used the smallest ones
 
   
 
 Birgitta was doing a solitaire puzzle, but didn’t have the patience to finish it.
 
 
 
here’s a handmade lock on the door, sure looks solid
 
What incredible interiors, the organ, the gramophone, the loom ...............lots of old interesting well kept, well made stuff,still glad I didn't live back than..................it's much easier nowadays
       
 

this is one incredible machine that a horse,cow or an ox had to walk in circles to make it work as a mill..........
  
the Laplanders lived in huts like this way back when they followed their herds

   

and food was kept in huts like this to be safe from bears and other wild life

 

here’s Birgitta  manning the snowplow................think she forgot the horse though

 

Mom really liked this window ornament made from straw, bet she’ll try to copy it next Christmas

 



throughout the entire area was gorgeous flowers, and we all know how much Mom likes that ............

 

     
 


the bell tower by the church was pretty cool too
 
 

This entire place was awesome to visit, so much to look at, but the absolutely coolest place was this barn with all weird noises.
I recognized several but they didn’t smell right ? I do know horses well, but this one didn’t deliver any meatballs. ................and the sheep kept falling over, and the chickens ??? woody bunch

Driving south towards Vienna in scorching hot weather Mom got sleepy very quickly so when she spotted a camp she quickly pulled in and parked. It wasn't many miles left and she still hasn't figured out how to drive avoiding the zones Lucy weren't all...

This morning we got up early as usual and the plan was to make it to Vienna by the evening but first Mom wanted to visit the Punkva caves that are located a little bit north of a city named Brno. Mom has now named Brno the city with the worst roads e...

Yesterday when we got back from the city we were both totally exhausted, Mom can't understand why I should be since I was riding in the carriage the entire time? Well, let me tell you even if I feel rather safe in my spot it's impossible to take naps...

Early rise as usual and watching the sunrise over the river Vltava.............nope, that's not a misspelling.      Remeber yesterday when Mom said, "we're driving straight to Prague on highways"? well, she tried to change that when she saw t...
