Road Rat 4

Sunday 12 April 2009 Västerås, Västmanland County, Sweden

Sundsvall-Västerås-Vadstena-Ödeshög (616 km)
Took a late morning and went down to the river, were the fishing men were already fishing 11:30/:) It was very relaxing and I almost immediately got in a meditative state by looking at the water currents.
Then we made another stop at Sala silver mine unfortunately we missed the last guided tour down the mines, too bad, they closed at 16:00.
Then it was pizza time in the ghetto in Västerås were our chef looked almost like the chef in the Disney movie ”The lady and tramp”, sorry I didn’t catch him on camera, I wishh I did.
Then it was time to find ”Hotell Hackspetten” (Woodpecker hotel) it was quite easy to find, we just had to look up in the trees. But it seemed that it was already booked for the night, so we had to continue our search for a creative living place.
One was to live in a stump (Norrqvarn) and another was tree house hotel (Falköping) but they were also above our budget. So our other options narrowed down to ”Bachelor Inn” (Jönköping) or ”Ödeshög vandrarhem” (Ödeshög). We made a quick stop at Vadstena castle at the sundown before we chose to stay at the hostel in Ödeshög just in time before closing 21:00. The ironic thing was that this hostel was the cheapest one (160 SEK person) but also the nicest and most comfortable.
