Grebbestad to Ed (12)
Up and down on muddy gravel through a surreal forest landscape.

After waking up in our warm and cosy apartment in Grebbestad we looked outside the window and saw exactly what the weather forecast had predicted – a cloudy sky with a bit of rain. The temperature was around 4 to 5° Celsius. But anyway, we wanted to continue our tour and hoped it would not get too bad. On a…

View over the harbor and restaurants area in Gebbestad.

After six really relaxing days in Lysekil, where we used the time to recover, we could not wait any longer to continue our tour. We started with an early breakfast in the big dining area, packed our bags and got ready. When we attached our bags to the bicycles outside we noticed how warm it was. There was almost no…

Fossen to Lysekil (10)
Stångehuvud - a small pond within the rocky scene.

The stage the day before was really tough and we felt every bone in our body when we woke up. But at least we had a warm cabin and we were really happy about that. A lot of camper buses were on the camping ground but the lady at the reception told us that for the cabin nobody was coming…

Myggenäs to Fossen (9)
Nice view from our wooden cabin on the campsite in Fossen.

Like all the nights in the tent so far, also this night was quite cold. But after the gear shopping in Göteborg and some research we got a little bit better prepared. For example we stayed in the tent until the sun was already shining and the temperature started to rise. So we had a nice breakfast in the sun,…

The bikes waiting at the Lunna Golf and Country club in Ingetorp.

After our last warm night in Göteborg we started the day with breakfast in our flat. Then we cleaned the mandatory stuff of the apartment and prepared the bikes. We had our bicycles in front of our door at the second floor. There was no elevator. Therefore, we had to carry the bikes down, followed by a lot of up-…

Three days to relax and explore Göteborg

Three days to relax and explore Göteborg
Vegan cinnamon buns and chocolate cake from Cafeva in Haga, Göteborg. Having a nice "Fika" in the sun.

After two tough tours with each around 100 km we needed some rest time. Furthermore, we wanted to have some time to wash clothes, buy some gear and wash the bikes. And of course we planned to visit Göteborg with a bit more time. We were quite lucky with the weather on the first day. It still felt a bit…

Älvsborgsbron - we arrived in Göteborg!

The night at the camping ground in Frillesås was cold again. Not freezing cold but still cold enough to wake up. We wanted to get up at 7 in the morning. The sun was already shining but it was still very cold. So we stayed in the tent and checked our options for today. In the end we decided to…

Falkenberg to Frillesås (6)
Afternoon snack stop at a remote beach near Frillesås.

In Falkenberg we had two very nice and chilled rest days. On the first day we walked along the river Ätran to the center of the city. We saw a lot of birds (mostly ducks - some of them fighting!). In the center we did a little sightseeing tour where we visited a church, a little art park and the…

Gullbranna to Falkenberg (5)
Bus shelter swedish style - 8 km from Falkenberg.

After our improvised dinner at the campsite we went to bed early. We hoped to keep the warmth in our sleeping bags. When we closed our eyes around 21 o´clock we were quite confident to get through the frosty night. It went good until around 3 or 4 o´clock when the temperature fell below 0°C. Also the tent was frozen…

Nature reserve with a lot of forrest near Gullbranna.

On our rest day we slept quite long and had a late big breakfast. After some quick laundry we decided to go the beach as the sun was shining. There is a little nature reserve right at the beach in Vejbystrand where we walked through. Alina wanted to take some photographs of the goats living there (according to google...). However,…
