They say there is no place like home. They are probably right, because it is quite nice to get back home after having been travelling for a while. After two weeks travelling it feels good to sleep in one’s own bed again.
We first went eastwards, to Nynäshamn where my niece Novalie was getting baptized. Together with Thea, I had the honour of being a god-parent, which I think is very nice. Nynäshamn is nice during summer-time, and it is always nice to be surrounded by family. After Nynäshamn, we continued on to Ullersäter and my parents’. We had nice summer weather in both places, and I got to try out the swimming water in both the Baltics, the Järleån and in the small swimming pool in Ullersäter.
After re-packing in Oslo we went onto the Denmark ferry. We had rented two summer houses in the small city of Brtten strand, just outside of Fredrikshavn, together with three other families. With a five minute walk to the beach, a half hour drive to Skagen, and several children in Jenny’s age it was just perfect. After a bit shaky start with some cold winds and a thunderstorm the weather turned out very nice, and everyone is happy and enjoyed the trip, and are already talking about doing it again next year.
Now it is time to go back to everyday life, Monday is a regular working day. It doesn’t matter though, now that I have had some time to recharge the batteries.
