I had a long but not exhausting drive today. Hubby insisted I should, so I drove from home and all the way to Karlskrona, in the southeastern part of Sweden. We headed off at 9:30am and arrived at around 4:00pm, with three stops along the way. I felt more comfortable now driving on a 110 km/h road that sometimes I could go over without noticing it. Hubby was just sitting most of the time, though he would react when I did wrong, sometimes giving me instructions as to where we should be heading. This little vacation we have is somewhat planned for my practice driving too. Anyway, we haven’t been to this part of Sweden, which according to hubby was merely a military base before. He did his military service in this small town when he was in school. He had not visited here after that, until today. And he was surprised to see how the town has improved since then.
There’s not much to see here but a place by the sea is somewhat exotic. We booked a room at Scandic Hotel near the harbour for yachts and small ferries. It was nice to feel the chilly breeze of the sea met with the warmth of the sun and gust of wind. It’s perfect for an exquisite dinner. I better get going. Tomorrow awaits another day of seeing around the town.
