Himself and I decided to make a little bit different journey for our holiday this year, instead of going to Greece as we usually do, we decided to go to Sweden and from there rent a car and drive up along the west coast in to Norway.
On Friday 14th of July we drove to our first destination Alingsås where my son and his family lives. It was so nice to see them again and to see Jack and Stella (the two grandchildren). They are now 3 and 11 months.
On Saturday we went to a park where they also have a pet farm. The kids loved it and it was nice to spend some quality time with them.
On Sunday it was time to leave and start our journey up further north along the coast. And we drove by the island where I grew up to stop by my dads grave. It felt good.
We arrived at our destination in Lysekil in the afternoon where we would stay for a couple nights before heading up to Norway. It is not really a long drive going up to Oslo from there but we will break up our journey in several bits, to make the most of it.
Lysekil is a nice town by the sea, it was very windy during our stay, but the sun was shining so it wasn’t too bad. I have spent lots of time here previously so knew a lot of places here. But on Tuesday morning we headed north to the Norwegian town Fredrikstad…and will tell you more about that in my next post so stay tuned.
