WELCOME TO OUR BLOGSITE. IT'S MAINLY ABOUT OUR TRIPS - IN A TRUCK.

WHILST TRAVELLING OVERSEAS WE USE THE TRAVELOGUES SECTION OF THE SITE TO DOCUMENT OUR LOCATION, RELAY SOME EXPERIENCES, AND TO TAKE THE OCCASIONAL WITHERING STAB AT TRYING TO MAKE SOME SENSE OF THE WORLD.

BY DEFAULT, POSTS APPEAR IN DATE ORDER WITH THE MOST RECENT FIRST BUT NAVIGATING TO THE START OF EACH TRIP IS EASILY ACHIEVED BY FOLLOWING THE 'OLDER POSTS' LINKS.

AS WELL AS MEMORIALISING TRIPS, THE SITE ALSO OFFERS A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO US, OUR TRUCK, AND A FEW USEFUL RESOURCES.

WE HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR VISIT!

Lappland Trip - Day 5 - Sweden


N 55.63063°, E 13.01458°


We arrived at Malmö just after 7.00pm having sailed under the awesomely spectacular Öresund bridge (pic).

That gave Emma an idea. The bridge gives access to Denmark, to Copenhagen specifically. Copenhagen hosts three parkrun. Tomorrow is Saturday.

The toll charge over the bridge is eye-wateringly expensive but when Emma gets a parkrun-related idea...

On the strength of a possible mini-assault into Denmark we've stayed close to Malmö docks. In spite of city sprawling away behind the genuinely impressive iconic helix tower we've found a bit of industrial wasteland (co-ordinates) that overlooks a small and unloved lagoon. This hosts loads of gull species and a few terns and wildfowl too. They seem to care little for the invisible-from-here cityscape and I have to say I'm with them.

In truck news, almost unbelievably and very disappointingly one of the infernal diesel fittings has yet again started leaking fuel. The one that's failed is the one we replaced on our return from Iceland less than two years ago. At least this means we keep a 100% record for every extended trip we've ever done throwing up this irritation.
