Sweden and homeward bound

sunny

After what seemed forever, the taxi arrived with Jackie from the airport and we were back together again... As the hotel was close to the old town, we went for a walk to the square and had a meal and watched the world go by.
The next morning we loaded the bike and went for a ride along the coast before checking in at the port for our ferry to Sweden.

After checking in we were directed to what I thought was the boat to Sweden but after talking to another biker it turns out that we were in the wrong lane, this was the boat to Finland!.. After a quick panic, we were directed to the right lane...

After a good nights sleep, we were in Swedish waters....

After arriving in Stockholm, it was on to Varnamo to stay at our good friends Johann and Nilla, where I did a quick service on the bike assisted by Tolle, followed by a barbeque and a couple of beers.
The next day it was off to the Euro Rally site at Hassleholm.

It was great to meet up with everyone and ride out together and I even won an award... "Furthest travelled"...then far to quickly it was time to head for home...

The last night we stopped of in Brugge for a final bit of being a tourist...

Well we are home now and it seems strange to not be on the road again. I have loved my time on the road, through the highs and lows I have learned to appreciate the moment that I found myself in and realise what is really important in life.
I have met some great people on my travels who have welcomed me into their lives with open arms who I now class as friends for life. It has reaffirmed my belief that there are more good people in the world than bad and at times it has been a humbling experience.
I thank you all from the bottom of my heart and hope to see you all some day soon.
