Wągrowiec to Poznań (26)
Snack stop in the forest - good shelter for the coming rain.

Wągrowiec is the smallest town we have been so far in Poland. But still it had something to offer. So we took a walk around the area. Right behind the sport park led a path to a small lake. Not far from there was a little promenade where you could rent pedal boats. But we continued our tour to the…

Bydgoszcz to Wągrowiec (25)
Break at the bus stop along the busy main road.

On our rest day in Bydgoszcz we relaxed at the camping ground. There were just two other people, after two German couples left with their camper in the morning. The camping ground was pretty nice but located in an industrial area which causes some noise. Nevertheless, we could enjoy the sun. Also included was the use of kayaks for free.…

Grudziądz to Bydgoszcz (24)
Colourful poland - so many flowers along the way from Grudziądz to Bydgoszcz.

On our rest day in Grudziądz the sun was shining very hot. But on our camping ground were a lot of trees which protected us from the heat. After breakfast we wanted to go into the city. The camping ground was around 6 km far from the center and we did not want to use our bicycles. But there was…

Malbork  to Grudziądz (23)
Our bikes at a resting place in a nice forest some kilometers before Grudziądz.

On our rest day in Malbork we decided to sleep long. After breakfast we did some stuff on our notebooks which was a bit difficult due to the bad wifi and also our mobile data connection. Next to the camping ground was a football field. Alex watched a game of the local club TP Nogat Malbork. They were down by…

More colourful houses in Gdańsk.

For the ferry in the evening to Gdańsk we needed a negative Covid Test. Therefore we took a train to Stockholm as we had an appointment there for a test. Without any problems we got there and the test took only a few minutes. Before we took the train home we had lunch at a MAX fast food restaurant. Meanwhile…

Fiskeboda to Sundbyholm (19)
Our camping spot in Sundbyholm.

Alina woke up by a loud plastic sound - the crows where back! Just as in Japan they were looking for potatoe chips. And sadly we did not secure everything in the evening and they had success. Never leave plastic bags outside the tent...🙄 The camping ground in Fiskeboda was in a really remote area. There were no shops or…

View over lake Vättern from the campsite in Askersund at 2:30 in the night.

After making laundry at our camping ground we explored the city of Askersund during perfect weather. The sun was shining and we had blue sky when we walked from our camping ground to the city. Our first stop was of course a chocolate café were we had a very delicious Fika. Alex would like to eat all of their sweets,…

Vassbacken to Askersund (17)
Tent and tarp are set at the campsite near Askersund - ready for the next rain...

In the morning of the day we spent in Vassbacken the sun was shining. The weather forecast was almost rain all day again, so we took the chance and cycled back to Töreboda and bought some food at supermarket (there was nothing close to the campsite...). Also we could see the part of the cycle path next to the Göta…

Mariestad to Vassbacken (16)
Found the Göta kanal! Just after the big rain shower.

On our two relax days in Mariestad we had mostly brilliant weather. Our camping ground was next to the Gamla Ekuddens nature reserve which is a famous spot among the local bird watchers. We could follow a path through this nature reserve leading us directly to the Marina of Mariestad. Next to the harbor was a small food court where…

Sundown over lake Vänern seen from the campsite near Mariestad.

On our rest day in Lidköping it rained all day and mostly even heavy. So we had no motivation at all to explore the city. But our camping ground was well equipped so we took the chance to do our laundry. We spent most of the day in the public kitchen area and did some stuff on our notebooks. In…
