Premier tour with the caravan this year did go to Karlsborg city which is about 220 km from Gothenburg. We had fantastic luck with the weather, sunshine every day! A bit cold and windy for BBQ, but for the rest just amazing. First four pictures below are from the city just behind our restaurant "Idas brygga" (Ida´s wharf).

Camping site

Since so early in the season, we had the camping almost for ourselves, only a few motor homes and "static folks" who do not use the wheels on there caravans.. instead they build a garden around it with veranda and all..

Forsvik old foundry

Not much changed since last time we were here, but always nice to walk around and feel in the atmosphere.
