The Road So Far

Arrived in Stockholm on the 15th of September and then flew north to Kiruna the and onward to Abisko the next day.  Spent 10 days of mostly rain and snow hiking the northern section of the Kungsleden trail – too late in season to complete whole trail, have to wait until next time.  Next headed to Stamsund in the Lofoten Islands, Norway for a couple weeks of hanging out before heading down the Norwegian coast to Trondheim and across into Sweden.  Walked nearly 20km down a snowy road trying to hitchhike, but it didn’t go so well.  Finally caught a short ride in the late afternoon and ended up camping  in the forest on the edge of some town.  temps dropped to maybe minus 10-12 at night, not so fun in my 0 degree sleeping bag; got up at 6am and thawed out in the train station waiting room for a few hours.  Next spent a few days wandering the streets of Stockholm before flying to London and taking trains and buses to my current location: Hay-on-Wye, Wales – the “town of books.”

Raining today, so getting some needed computer work done…
