A Post on the Subject of Travel in Sweden

It had been far too long since such a jaunt.

The Oresundsbron, a bridge that connects the Danish capital, Copenhagen, to the west, with the Swedish city of Malmo to the east.

From the train, edging into Malmo.

As one of Malmo's outdoor markets close up, the culture of van decor presents itself.

Saturday morning strolling leads to the fish market, and eels.

And maybe a hint as to where just a few of the local residents got their spectacular good looks from.

And to the Turning Torso, a residential building - the tallest building in Scandinavia - that overlooks the Oresunds strait.

And back to what you know, with the same eye for the unusual, the unlikely, and the oft-unremarked upon.

I love Malmo - it is one of my all time favourite cities - I have been three or four times over the years.

The old castle in the city is nice, too. And we stumbled upon their Oktoberfest thingummy once year also. Which was nice, obv.

One of my favourite bloggers is in Sweden. Nea on my side bar.
I have never been but it used to be said to be very expensive.
