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 a slightly inflated opinion about the value they’re providing their customers. However, the entire city of Varberg was a bit of a tourist stop, so I guess that’s the reason for the inflated prices. Anyway, it was clean and the breakfast was good, so I’ll get over it.
I headed out the door at 8:30 and got right on the bike trail. That lasted for about 12 of my 17 miles. Just a couple of miles out of town there was a goose refuge right along the coastline. I could see flocks of geese flying into the refuge from the east and because the bike trail was very near the edge of the water, the geese were quite low as they came over my head. I stopped in a good spot and made a video. You can watch it by clicking on the video tab on my website.
Today’s weather was very nice with partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the 60s. I got to my hotel in Frillesberg at 2:00. There was a sign on the door that said check in is from 4:00-11:00. There was a call box at the door but no one answered. So here I sit at a picnic table outside this tiny hotel waiting for the owner to show up. I made this reservation through a reservation website, not with the hotel itself. I hope they got the word that I’m staying here tonight. Otherwise, I’ll be walking to the train station to ride to the next town.
Break-Break: Good News. The owner just opened the door at 3:00. I have a room and don’t need to catch the train. That’s all for today. Have a great Tuesday. I did! JB.
P.S. Don’t forget the video.
