Landskrona
After passing into Sweden via the Øresund Bridge (which, being sad like we are, we videoed) we arrived in Malmo feeling pleased with ourselves and with Fiat for making our van 2mm shy of 6m and thus saving us £35 on the bridge toll (say nothing of the towbar or bullbar). Our initial impressions for Malmo were that of a busy port city and while I don't doubt that the city itself is worth a visit we wanted to press on and see some countryside.
Helsingborg
Our first night was spent in Gamla Bo, on a lake where we were joined with by a German motor home who obviously possessed similar Wild spot locating skills to ourselves. The following day we visited Lund, a pleasant town with a large university and a young feel and to Helsingborg the Swiss version of Helsingor which is on the Danish side, looking back over the water at the Castle (Slot) we had stayed at a few days earlier.

As we were awaiting a package from home to arrive at the Campsite in Varborg and while we hate travelling back on ourselves, we decided to go and visit Göteborg before driving 40 miles South back to the campsite to recharge, refuel and do 4 loads of washing.
We were there in time for Walpurgis Night - a sort of Summer Festival which appears to have been taken on by the students in recent years judging by the home made carnival floats mounted on shopping trolleys!

I type this from the Apel Vixen site which while very much out of season, is very pleasant and participially accommodating by allowing us to have a couple of packages sent here. I almost felt cheeky producing our ACSI card for our £11 stay, what's more their Wifi is easily the fastest internet connection I've ever used and we've managed to back up all the photo's we've taken so far.

We'll be in Stockholm in a couple of days, watch this space!
