Day 2 – long journey, stressful day.

We where up early but didn’t manage to break camp till 8:30 that ment all our plans where about a 1h and a 1/2 behind. This leg of the trip involved the longest drive, almost 450 miles so we had to get moving early, but it was not to be. We aimed to drive across Sweden from west to east, Halmstad to Hedesunda, which is near Gävle.

I wasn’t prepared for how tiring the driving would be. We got lost a couple of times before lunch, by taking a rong turning. This added another 40 minuets on to our journey time. So, instead of arriving at around 3:30 it would now be about 6:00. This was a bit disappointing
because from our research this was going to be the pick of the camp sites we would be staying at over the course of the trip. Hedesunda is on a island on a massive lake and we where to get a spot of fishing in but, alas we where too late. Never mind, te camp is beautiful, verry peceful and idyllic.

Tomorrow we head north for the Arctic Circle!
