10-Mar-2007 -- Yeahaw! Finally winter holidays and we can go to Norway for nordic skiing and dog-sledding. This winter 2006/2007 gave only half a day of snow in Hamburg and just one crowded weekend in February at the nearest winter resort, the Harz. So, well prepared as we were, we started our tour the classic way. Driving to Puttgarden, taking the ferries to Rødby and Helsingborg we ended up in Sweden after a good nine hours ride. Our plan worked out just fine because we stayed for the night just a few hundred meters away from a confluence we wanted to visit the other day.

After a good not too cold night and cleared everything up we took on our hiking-boots and started searching. Easy to find, but coming from our direction barred by a ditch, we had to look for a good possibility to cross. Happy not getting wet feet we finally took the pictures and enjoyed the moment. Back at the car again we met a friendly guy and had a little chat. Nice idea to have a winter hut out there! The rest of our holidays was just as successful as the beginning.

We will come back!
