July 2010 – Sweden

Our friend Martin Tornberg is turning 40 and a surprise party was arranged for him in Blekinge. The Rock-karaoke with live-band and dancing was great fun!

We prepared our Land Rover ‘Alhambra’ for a five week tour through Sweden and Norway. The first stop was northwestern Skåne where we spent a couple of days with the Maurin family. Hovs Hallar, with its dramatic rock formations, was a highlight.

We continued on small roads along the west coast and enjoyed lazy days on the beautiful beaches.

Disa and Temba became addicted to minigolf and insisted on us finding camp sites where they could play.

In Grimeton, outside Varberg, we visited the highly interesting long wave radio station from 1925. It is a World Heritage since 2005 and tourists come from all over the world to visit this unique site.

Disa turned 7 years and we celebrated with cake in Varberg.

In Bohuslän the coastline changes appearance. Granite rocks form a beautiful archipelago and we visited some of the traditional fishing villages, e.g. Lysekil, Smögen and Fjällbacka.

Another World Heritage is the Tanum Rock Carvings from the Bronze Age. Vivid illustrations, some more than 3000 years old, tell stories about life in those days.
