The weather was pretty crappy so I went to the Danske Museum as its free and indoors! Later I caught the train to Kalmar, Sweden, and waited for Shahab and his mate Joel to pick me up. We then drove on to Öland, one of the Swedish Islands, where they were entering a Beach Volley Competition for the week.
The bridge from Kalmar to Öland is one of the longest bridges in Europe, and has a bump at one end to allow ships to pass underneath. Stopping for food, we encountered a strange place that really speeds up the usual pub-to-fast-food plan by literally having a fast food shop IN the pub with live music. Sadly, Shahab is no longer a vegan. But at least its easy for him to sort things out for me
We then set up a tent as we were camping the first night. Admittedly right next to a NO TENT sign inside a camping ground, but the grass was soft and we were getting up early
