Day 109: some viking history

Friday, 29 September 2017 Today's kilometers: 46 Total kilometers: 2882 Trelleborg A strange laziness overcame my feet today. It's not too bad, yet it is hard to even make a sustainable 4km per hour. Without really paying much attention I came across several ruins today. I've seen lots of then allready and never found 'em... Continue Reading →

Thursday, 14 September 2017 Today's kilometers: 51 Total kilometers: 2403 Nittorp-Tranemo-Ambjörnarp I still need 90 to get on the trail every morning. Thats way to long, unfortunately.

Last week short #10

Saturday 02. September 2017 Total kilometers: 1933 After a very relaxed stay in mora we continued walking south. Since we are already late on our schedule we take every shortcut we find.

Day 74: daily routine

Friday, 25 August 2017 Today's kilometers: 40 Total kilometers: 1759 Haven't seen any hikers today. At this point I can tell that a portable music player seems critical to me. Walking has become daily routine. You don't really do anything but walking, eating, sleepinh. A bit of thinking and reading in between. But as the... Continue Reading →

Day 73: Vasaloppsleden

Thursday, 24 August 2017 Today's kilometers: 35 Total kilometers: 1719 The Vasaloppsleden is a very well maintained trail going from Sälen to Mora over a distance of 90km so the perfect place for beginners. Not much elevation at all. Lots of shelters and huts but also spaces to camp. A night at a Hut is... Continue Reading →

Day 72: new trail, new shoes

Wednesday, 23 August 2017 Today's kilometers: 28 Total kilometers: 1684 Another night we couldn't get much sleep, as it was freezing cold. Literally freezing cold as we found out later. So lacking enthusiasm, we slowly made our way down to a small town a few kilometers before Sälen, where we stopped for a proper meal... Continue Reading →

Day 71: cold routine

Tuesday, 22 August 2017 Today's kilometers: 30 Total kilometers: 1656 It's been another freezing cold night. Dry feet today, yeah. But there has been a mistake, the southern Kungsleden still continues for a few Kilometers until it ends in one of Sälens ski villages. At this point I also want to talk about some of...
