A good start !

Clearly we could not have gotten a better start on this test trip. We took off yesterday in the beautiful evening sun and this morning we woke up to a blue sky on Kornö. It took a few hours before we were set to go this morning; apparently it's a bit tricky to pack the kayak in a good way. 

After examining the littering of the area we finally got out on the sea, and what a day for kayaking it has been! Almost no wind at all, the sun eating at our necks. Together with several seals and loads of different sea-birds we've been paddling a total of around 30 km in the beautiful archipelago between Lysekil and Smögen. Now we are camping on Grötö north of Smögen. 

Both us and Tim has unfortunately had some problems with our portable stoves which is a bit unfortunate sinne we bought so much food. Still it works alright and we will be able to get another kitchen once we get to Gothenburg.

Tomorrow we continue north towards Fjällbacka, a beautiful area for kayaking. Now we must recover our shoulders and backs with a few hours of sleep. 

Happy Easter from us all! 


With Johan and Tim
