Day 140

Start:  Gothenburg  Finish:  Kungalv Distance:  12 Total:  2114 If you ever decide to go on a long walk, I hope you have many days like I had today. It was short, with a late beginning, some off road adventure in the middle, and an early ending in a neat little town with a cool hotel.  … Continue reading »

Start:  Kungsbacka  Finish:  Gothenburg  Distance:  18 Total:  2102 Today got off to a slow start, but I knocked out another 18 miles and made it to Gothenburg, the last large city before I finish in Oslo.  When I got up this morning, it was raining right down.

Day 138

Start:  Kungsbacka Finish:  Kungsbacka  Distance:  0 Total:  2084 Today I decided to take a day off.   Because of some difficulties with hotel arrangements that are too complicated to explain here, I took a day off today while I was staying in a Gothenburg hotel and will continue my walk on Friday. So today I … Continue reading »

Day 137

Start:  Frillesberg  Finish:  Kungsbacka Distance:  15 Total:  2084 Today’s walk got off to a chilly start. It was 57 outside when I got started at 8:00 and only warmed up to 63.

Day 136

Start:  Varberg Finish:  Frillesberg Distance:  17 Total:  2069 I had a nice little 17 mile stroll up the Swedish coastline to the very small town of Frillesberg today.  The day got started with a great breakfast (fried bacon)!  The hotel I stayed in last night in Varberg was interesting, but I think the owners have … Continue reading »

Day 135

Start:  Falkenberg  Finish:  Varberg Distance:  18 Total:  2052 Today I walked 18 miles in about as straight of a line as you can get. There were no towns, no stores or gas stations; nothing but a lot of farms and the shoulder of the road.  The day got started with a good breakfast at the … Continue reading »

Day 134

Start:  Steninge Finish:  Falkenberg Distance:  15 Total:  2034 Today’s journey farther north up the coast of Sweden was most enjoyable. No rain, no traffic; just a bunch of crazy horseflies that are persistent and won’t leave me alone. Sometimes I have to swat them away with my hat.  After a restful stay and good breakfast … Continue reading »

Day 133

Start:  Halmstad Finish:  Steninge Distance:  12 Total:  2019 I never know what I’m getting myself into from one day to the next. My walking today was pretty straight forward, though it was in the rain, but my lodging experience tonight is one for the record books.  As I mentioned yesterday, I was suppose to walk … Continue reading »

Day 132

Start:  Skummeslovesstrand Finish:  Halmstad Distance:  18 Total:  2007 Today’s route took me from the beach town of Skummeslovesstrand to the port city of Halmstad. My route was actually a few miles inland from the coast so I was walking through farmland most of the day.  I got started this morning at 8:45 after waiting out … Continue reading »

Day 131

Start:  Angelholm Finish:  Skummeslovsstrand Distance:  19 Total:  1989 Today’s route took me farther north along the Swedish Coast to the beach town of Skummeslovsstrand.  The day once again got started with early rain showers that ended by the time I started walking at 8:15. Today’s temperature was cool enough to need long pants and a … Continue reading »
