Bruno at Nykøbing F Zoo
Ok, I won´t be going where I intended to take bronu in the first
place, for a while now.
So to prevent Bruno from going into hibernation,
I took him to a day at the local Zoo in Nykøbing F.
I will leave Bruno in a brand new cache one of these days,
for someone else to take him onto new adventures.

Bruno at Siljansbygden, Nusnäs and Slagsta Glass
TB Bruno also went to Nusnäs on the 4th august. The real Dalecarlian
horse - the symbol of Sweden - is manufactured in only one place
on Earth, in the little village Nusnäs by the Lake Siljan.
At the sight he learned about manufacturing methods and the tradition
of the Dalecarlian horse.
The last night TB Bruno stayed with us (6th august), we went to
Slagsta Glass and had a farewell party. They serve a soft ice cream
they make from an old recipe. Its the best ice cream in the
region. Its sad to say good bye to a good friend like TB Bruno.
He is now taking a well deserved rest at Marielund Travel Bug Hotel.
We thank him for the good company at our holiday. We also wish him
best of luck on his journey around the world!

Bruno at Classic Car Week in Jönköping, Steam Boat
Pier, The Hostel and Gesundaberget
After a few days rest in Torshälla, TB Bruno went on a short
trip to Dalarna (Dalecarlia) with us. The first stop, at the second
of august, was Classic Car Week in Rättvik. He saw a lot of
really nice cars and went for a walk on the steam boat pier. You
have a great view on the town of Rättvik and on the shores
of Lake Siljan. Classic Car Week is on the same week every year,
week 31 or in early august. Classic Car Week has grown to become
one of Sweden's largest car rallies and is being held for the fourteenth
consecutive year, this year. Classic Car Week is a week filled with
interesting outings, events and evening entertainment for everyone.
Rättvik is situated in one of Sweden's most beautiful tourist
areas. The area is rich culture and there are many opportunities
for outdoor life and relaxation. There is a fantastic sandy beach,
a golf course, local craftsmen renowned for their skills and one
of Europe's most remarkable amphitheatres, Dalhalla.
After Rättvik, TB Bruno went to Mora. From time immemorial,
Mora has been the centre of northern Dalarna. Here, Swedish history
took a significant turn in 1520 when, after a series of adventurous
exploits, King Gustav Vasa managed to convince the men of Mora to
join the battle against the Danish king. A marked reminder of these
events is the cross-country ski race, the Vasaloppet, which from
meagre beginnings in 1922 has grown to become one of world's largest
ski events. We stayed at a very nice hostel 5 km south west of Mora,
Mora vandrarhem och gästhem. TB Bruno really enjoyed
the picturesque surrounding and the homelike atmosphere at the hostel.
At the third of august, TB Bruno went on a trip to Gesundaberget.
The mountain has a chair lift that is open during the summer. Millions
of years ago a comet landed in this area. At the impact, which ranges
among the ten greatest in the world history, Lake Siljan was formed.
The mountains surrounding the lake are remnants of the crater edges.
During the summer months people come here to admire the views
and in the winter mainly to ski the expansive skiing area. The peak
of Gesundaberget reaches an altitude of 514 metres which makes it
one of the best outlook points over Lake Siljan. From the top of
the hill the views are truly spectacular, including the bell towers
of as many as eight parishes! The views have been awarded three
stars in Guide Michelin.

Bruno at Ales Stenar, Brahe Hus and the Military Defence museum
TB Bruno went on holiday with us. The first place he visited, 27th
of July, is a bit of a mystery. Ales stenar (Stones) is Sweden's
largest preserved "ship setting" - stones set in the layout
of a ship. We do not know for certain what function the stones have
had through the ages, or what the ship setting symbolised for the
people who created it. Ship settings 67 meters long and 19 meters
wide, Ales stenar is one of the largest ship settings in the Nordic
region. It comprises 59 carefully selected stones weighing between
500 and 1800 kilos. Ales stenar is situated on the coast at Kåseberga
in the county of Skåne in Southern Sweden, around ten kilometres
south east of Ystad. In Kåseberga and in Kåseberga harbour
you can find food and handicraft items.
At the 30th July we started our journey to Mälardalen and
Torshälla. The first stop was at A6-center in Jönköping.
Its a shopping centre next to the E4 motorway in Jönköping.
You can park free here and take time to find what you want among
75 shops, restaurants, department stores and IKEA store. At the
A6 Centre TB Bruno also visited the Military defence museum. He
learned about the district of Jönköping, which early in
history for hundreds of years was border country towards Denmark.
The exhibition show locally used military equipment, dating from
the latest century the A6 epoch. After the museum
in Jönköping, TB Bruno went to see the great view from
Brahe Hus. It was a beautiful sunset at the ruin. One of the most
well known sights in Gränna is Brahe Hus, the mighty ruin on
the ridge above Gränna. It is the remains of a pavilion that
Per Brahe junior erected in 1640. A fire down below in Uppgränna
1708 spread to the castle and destroyed it completely. In Gränna
town you can find the candy Polkagris (peppermint rocks).
Gränna "polkagrisar" are one of Sweden's most popular
souvenirs. You can watch the manufacturing in any of the many bakeries.

Bruno at Turning Torso (N 55° 36.797 E 012° 58.581)
Turning Torso, a fairly recent and very much debated landmark of
Malmö. 190m high and a skeleton-like design has made the architect
Santiago Calatrava known to most Malmö residents. Read more

Bruno south of Sound Bridge (N 55° 32.480 E 012°
Before taking off, Bruno takes a picture with him in front of the
Sound Bridge, connecting Sweden and Denmark. It helps him to ease
the home sickness when traveling. You may read more about the bridge
