Day 25 - Red houses and station wagons - 115km- store mosse national park
Inspired by Anna we had a record early start time and one of the highest average speeds. We encountered our first paparazzi, as the regional newspaper in Unnaryd had been alerted of our arrival. We opted for the scenic route across the island Bolmso, then headed straight North for a National Park. We have passed hundreds of red houses and learned that the Swedish love of red is due to the low price as it is a byproduct of mining iron. We met the dog breeder who won day 2 of the Paris dog show and we are staying in one of his fields on the edge of the park. Vivien created an inspiring meal with roasted potatoes and grilled pork. The park is a huge wetland housing plenty of birds which we can hear in the distance. We dedicate this day to Kinga and we hope she is having a great time in India, we can't wait to hear about it.
