Kalmar, Sweden Day 107

Kalmar is the town where the train deposits you before you head over to Oland by bus. Since I have 4 nights booked in Copenhagen I thought I’d spend a few hours here before I got back on the train to go back to Denmark. The bus pulled in at 12:30, and my train didn’t […]

Oland, Sweden Day 106

Today might go down in history as the longest bike ride of my life. My butt can attest to that-Owie! The great thing about this island is that it is nice and flat, perfect for cycling. I hate hills. Well, going down is fine, but going up? Yeah, I was always that kid walking her […]

Karlstad to Stockholm, Sweden Train Day 102

I didn’t really get much of a chance to see Karlstad, but it was really just  stop over on my way to Stockholm. I stayed in the hostel here and had my own room. After 5 hostel experiences, I can now officially say that I will never book in a hostel again. I simply prefer […]

Sandefjord to Karlstad Train Day 101

Sadly, I left Sandefjord today. You know what this means, don’t you? I have to re-learn all of my traveling alone habits! Eating alone, shopping alone, finding people to talk to! Ah, I’ve been so spoiled for the past month! First it was Paul in Germany, then Katie and Jared in Amsterdam, then Karin and […]
