Day 20 and I find a little bit of paradise on the wee island of Malo

A great day cycling. I made for the coast and passed through some beautiful countryside. At Lysekil I took the ferry to the Islands of Fiskebockkskil, Flaton and Malo, where I stayed at a sweet little camp site.

The beautiful island of Malo

This is how it used to be

That's a big shed

My trusty steed

Fellow traveller, stopped for a chat

This is what the road is like around here... forest and hills

A guy from Edinburgh asked me for directions here...he had been in Haddington last week

First cycle sign in Sweden
