06/22 The way over the river Mälaren is blocked for the next 10 minutes

06/23 At the campground in Uppsala: These two car drivers from South Korea came all the way from home. As tHey were travelling a good portion on the same streets in Russia as I did, we had a long conversation while we are having a delicious, but quite spicy corean dinner together.

06/25 Fika: My favorite things to do in Sweden. Having a coffee and a Kanelbullar.

06/28 a bad decision for a shortcut leaded to this road-conditions.

06/28 Sundsvall from above

06/29 The Höga Kusten Bridge. Unfortunately, it is closed for bicycles (even so many cyclists take the bridge). I took the 40 km detour as it was a quite nice landscape.

07/01 The Area of Höga Kusten is a very pretty piece of Sweden.

07/01 Here I med Sascha and Anna with their little daughter Sascha (Александра). They are coming from Petrozavodsk in Karelia.
