Day #1 (first page of my travel journal)
We drove from Zierikzee to Kiel where we arrived nicely in time to catch the boat (or shall I say boot? :)) We enjoyed the cruise To Göteborg. We had a nice dinner on board and a comfortable cabin with a view. I love this way of travelling! Next morning we arrived in Göteborg, rested and well fed with a lovely breakfast. We drove to Anna where we had lunch.
We arrived at our stuga later that day. The kids went for a swim directly. We had a rowing boat and canoe at our disposal, which we used every day. This is the view from our garden, which was lovely btw.
Here is a collaged picture. Click to enlarge This was our "Sommar Stuga".
