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. In addition, there was a 20 mph west wind blowing off the North Sea. I started the day wearing a jacket until I got into some forested areas to block the wind and the sun broke through the clouds and made it seem a little warmer.
Most of the day was spent walking on the shoulder of the road. There was a bike trail but it kept going out of the way through small towns off my walking route so I decided to stick with the highway shoulder. The traffic was reasonably light so there were no problems.
After I got to my destination of Kungsbacka, I caught the train into Gothenburg, a 20 minute ride, where I’ll be staying for the next three nights. Tomorrow’s weather is forecast to stay dry until mid-afternoon so my plan is to catch the train back to Kungsbacka tomorrow morning and walk the 18 miles from their train station where I stopped walking today to my Gothenburg hotel. Then I’ll take Friday off, also in Gothenburg.
That’s all I can think of to tell you today. It was an uneventful, yet chilly day in central Sweden. Thanks for reading. JB.
