SWEDEN 7/8

Av EvaLena Hallgren - Lördag 8 juli 08:36

I like to rapport that even the older generation has succumbed to this habit by the dinner table, (they only need larger devices)........... Makes Mom crazy, but on the other hand at this age, these two probably already said everything that needs to be said to each other


 


Gorgeous morning and as usual we're up with the sunrise..............Mom is looking up at that bridge hoping that's not the one we have to cross to continue.


 


This dog was also awake, ad he looked very puzzled that he wasn't the only one up this early? He didn't say a woff just stared at us with his mouth open..


 


This looks like a great house, Mom wold love having it floating in a Florida canal with access to the ocean...............but if we did, I would have to learn to swim she says................ I already do know how I just choose not to............


 


last night this helicopter kept spraying the vineyards hoping it's just watering but that would be too good to be true. Pretty sure it's against bugs so the crop doesn't get ruined.  The pilot was pretty good at it, sure wasn't his first time flying

     


Packing up to continue our trip Mom decided it was time to head north and take the sun with us to make our Swedish friends happy. They have not had too many days of warm weather so far this summer (what else is new?)

We got on the autobahn wich is a fast moving 3 lane highway. Thousands of trucks also heading north..........Lucy is liking the German diesel a lot and keeping up with traffic very well. Germans claim we have only vegetables in our tanks............I don't know the truth, but the exhaust stinks much more in Germany. Getting through Hamburg was the pits, lots of traffic and road work which held us up.


We didn't make it all the way in one day, so we slept at a truck stop again. This place was very well kept, and lots of cute rabbits were living there, none of them willing to make my acquaintance............maybe a language issue?


 


In the morning Mom made reservations at a Copenhagen parking space for RVs.We have been there before and remember the rude owner, but it's the closest to the city and a good place to park and ride the bike. 

We finally made it to the ferry to take us to Denmark. we could have driven around, but this gives both Mom and Lucy a break.

 


Mom has promised me to never leave me in the car on a ferry ride and she kept that promise this time too


 


Denmark has lots of Windmills that produces clean power.


 

it's so cool watching the seagulls kind of floating along the ship as we are crossing the ocean. 


   


we finally arrived in Copenhagen, Moms favorite city where she has a lot of memories from puppyhood. None of which she's sharing with me.

We got to the parking space, and there's Finn, the rude guy. He said he never got Moms booking and now has no space? He still denied getting it even as Mom showed him it on her computer, and even showed him the response he wrote about needing Lucy's plate number, which he had received? There was no point arguing with him he has many complaints about his demeanor, but since he's the only one in town he has more than enough business so he doesn't need to be nice.................well that's HIS opinion

Driving around the city thinking what to do................

   

This messed up our plans to bike ride, but Mom has learned a lot from the Italians about parking, so we just parked and folded in the mirrors as we went to the Freetown looking to get Moms favorite sandwich and drink.


     


the girl still there and selling these amazing drinks made from avocado, ginger and something else. Sandwich mom likes is also avocado mozzarella and tomatoes on this great bread. 

It's a hippie town and there's a lot of graffitis which Mom normally don't like but here it belongs and fit in she says.......

and some of them are really well done


       


lots of tourists come here and they even have tours to show how hippies from the 60ies live ........haha. Many artists live here also.


   


this bike with a box on the front was initially made here, but has become so popular they moved to a larger place. Parents pedaling along in Copenhagen with their children sitting in the box is a very common sight, and it's not unusual to see a repairman arriving in one of these with the box full of tools

   

 


somewhere driving north we lost the sun we brought along and here comes the rain. It was really pouring for a while, so Mom pulled over and took a nap..................It's not a nap, it's siesta she corrected me............and the difference is???

 


Nothing much is happening now and if this continues there'll be a lot of napping.................SIESTAS!!!!


all is well.



Leaving Copenhagen we headed straight towards Sweden to a combined railway and motorway bridge across the strait.The bridge runs nearly kilometers  (5 miles) from the Swedish coast to an artificial island in the middle of the strait. The crossing started by a 4-kilometre (2.5 mi)  tunnel from Denmark.

Only 10 more days and we are getting on the plane for that long ride back to the warm sun. I know Mom is not looking forward to the travel but it'll be nice to see everybody again. As of lately, it seems like it has been raining every other day and...

We have spent all this silent time in Moms puppy town visiting friends and relatives so there hasn't been much to write to you guys about says Mom and this time I have to agree.  Yesterday we started the trip south and spent most of the day driving...

It's been a few days since my update so I have to go back a few days and tell about the visit at Moms relatives that have ducks. I jumped out of Lucy and ran to greet them but that scared them so much I was told not to that again and being the nice...

Since we now are in the part of the country where Mom spent her puppy years, we are doing a lot of visiting, going from one relative to another.  Continuing my story from a few days back while we were in the small village called Gunnarn Early one...

Nothing to tell is once again the excuse Mom is giving me and my protests don't seem to matter anymore...........Oh well, I guess I have to settle with the little time I do get. We spent a few days at Mom's aunt and her birthday party, where Mom go...
