So we are leaving 24.06 - I can pass law exam day earlier. 24.06 train at 19:50, it takes 11 h with two train changes - well it's necessary because of bicycles which determine only “standart” trains, second reason is ferry at 9 AM. We will arrive to Karlskrona at 19:30, get ou
t of the Verkö island and go straight to Svanhalla coast (maybe small harbor, maybe northern beaches) which is nearly 28 km from harbor so despite evening we should be there before the sun came down. Next day we’ll try get to Kalmar before 19:00 so we can take a bus for bicyclers across the bridge. That is why first two days can be tiring but after that it’s only vacations:)
I decided to leave notebook at home – well we’ll see how whole trip will look like and maybe next time it’s really a necessary to carry all this stuff. Hmm… I even don’t know does anybody read this:P Today I received a solar panel for Nokia GPS device in my mobile, GSM module I will try to turn it off if energy consumption will be to big – I observed that due 2 h cycling in Poznań with of course GSM turned on, active Nokia Sports Tracker with backlit most of the time – I just have to take a look from while to while at speed or distance:P So there should be no problems with energy for tracking all of the route mostly thanks to weather – Google weather shows that since 20.06 at Oland is shiny and temperatures are above 21 degrees:) 5 km/h wind and possibility of change: 10%;) It should be perfect.
Some more detailed preparations: adhesive plasters (aid kids everywhere are quite rubbish so I will prepare my own), chocolates, soluble vitamins, cans with some salads and fishes, honey roasted peanuts, dry fruits etc. Only today I find out how it is to ride with really overweighed bicycle – high placed load makes harder to drive slowly, turning is more rapid, front shock-absorber goes just crazy. I have to think serious how to place all my things.
Costs are getting bigger because of ferry, which in tourist season cost in best way 120 PLN one way. If we won’t choose special day we have to spend 200 PLN and more for each student with discounts – it’s nearly the same price like for a car with 5 peoples (price per person):/ It is changing a lot during last years. Ferry to Nynäshamn is getting more payoff if we want to go more at north, by car if we wanted to go north it always have a point. 18 h long ferry, quite nice upper deck where polish Tyskie beer commercial was made, Gotland island passing by and beautiful way to port between thousands of small rocky islands with spruce trees and characteristic red houses on islands closer to coast. Here truly Scandinavia begins:)
At photos above Karlskrona – I couldn’t take a picture of this funny gut, he looks like a dwarf! – excerpt last photo: it’s a ferry from Tallin to Helsinki, it’s quite nice thanks to this car-eating effect;) …and you have to know that this ship was biggest swimming cow – you can see even here some piebalds.
