Euro trip – Final (Malmö)

We had to say goodbye to our friends Anton and Elfreda on our return to Denmark from Norway. We had a blast of a time with them and the trip would not have happened without their nudge.

Thanks a stack and cant wait for this time next year when we will do our Botswana trip.

Charmain and I still had a day or two left before our flight back and after a slight miscalculation we ended up with a day to spend in another country.

We took the train to Malmö in Sweden for a day.

Malmö is a young city. By young I mean half the population is under 35 years of age, and this can be partly attributed to Malmö university.

Once again a beautiful city, with beautiful buildings and beautiful people.

At this stage of our trip we were totally at ease to get lost in a new city, exploring and enjoying every facet and scene the city good give us.

We had an absolute blast with our friends, and once again it would not have been possible or such an awesome trip without my better half.

Thanks babe.

In the pipeline is a post or two about our latest trip to the bush, but thanks for reading and following our Baltic trip.
