As my godson was ending senior high school I was up for the event in Helsingborg, Sweden. Running out of gymnasium as it is called (freely translated). This is a really big event in Sweden it is a must to one day in life. So if anyone have the chance and are in Sweden beginning of June I recommend to take a look.
Anyhow Diana drove me to the train-station Tuesday morning and left me there, as she could not take off from work due to colleagues who had holiday. I had to go alone this time. So I went by train to Zurich airport which takes me 25 minutes. Everything went smoothly concerning the trip including security and flight.
It was first when I was waiting for my luggage in Copenhagen it stopped a little. This must be one of the slowest airports in the world handing out luggage. Looks good when coming to the belt (It’s written 20 minutes) the last 1 min takes approx 30 minutes though. In the end this time I had a new speed record…. it took only 43 minutes (earlier record was 55 min). Now I knows why they have restaurants in the luggage area. Only airport have seen this on during all my travel.
After receiving my luggage I took the train up to Helsingør in Denmark. From there and beside the train the ferry for Helsingborg, Sweden is leaving. I arrived Sweden 3 pm and headed for the hotel.
Check-in at the hotel and had a shower. Then my parents picked me up and we drove to my sister which son is my godson and who was to end school the day after. We stopped only to say hello and see you tomorrow.
After we left for my parents place where we had a nice dinner and a good chat. Took the bus back to my hotel about 11 pm and headed for bed 10 and out. The day after I woke up to a blue sky and a wonderful day 30°C. was promised. Which I love but thought could be quite hot when standing outside the whole day.
I was picked up at apron 12 o’clock by my parents again. We drove to the place where the students for this school was running out of gymnasium. The name of the place was Sundspärlan which is in a nice park.
We did not have much of shade even if it was in a park. Of course were we was waiting not many trees were around.
Later we drove down to Råå Marina for lunch my parents and I. Was nice to take a stroll down there as well after lunch and cool down a little.
Then back downtown for me to make me ready for the evenings event at my sisters place. On my way to the hotel I arrived in the middle of the parade for all students as is common in Sweden.
Back to the hotel and the second shower of the day changing of cloth again. Good that I had two sets of shirts with such a heat.
At 6 pm I was picked up once more for the ride to my sister and husband for a nice dinner. Here I meet my own kids as we who came in from Gothenburg for this event. It was wonderful to meet everyone and we had a great and funny evening. The food we shouldn’t forget which was outstanding and made by my sister and her husband.
We where going on until close to midnight before it was time to head back to the hotel again.
Thursday morning at 10 am my home journey started with a short walk down to the ferry. Blue sky and 26-28°C which fitted perfectly to the Swedish national day.
When arriving home Diana was picking me up at Frauenfeld train station which was covered with clouds and a temperature of 17°C.
