Our big road map is getting quite wrecked from use; Mary doesn't know everything, so we have to check up on her from time to time, and to plan our route off course.
We're enjoying the sunshine now and just a few days ago in Skodje, Sweden we had a blanket free night by the lake (the one where I got the car bogged). We drove only 400 kilometers down the road where it was so cold, it was definately a 3 dog night and a woolen hat to boot. Des had to laugh when he got up in the night because all he could see of me was a bump in the bed and my nose.
I've had to cut all my nails off as they were all breaking, chipping, cracking and bending back everyday. Tucking the canvas in of the camper on a cold day is painful on the hands as the canvas is brittle. It just folds away like butter on a sunny day.
We've noticed that the wind gusts here. We seem to have whole days or half days which are windy in Oz. Here it can be perfectly calm when all of a sudden a gust of wind will pick up and persist for about 15 minutes or so then totally disappear.
After we left Norway behind, we moved fairly quickly through Sweden to arrange ferries to Finland, St Petersburg and Estonia.
I've included some nice pictures of Stockholm before we move on for you.
