Sunday, 8/28 2011: hope

On Sunday morning we woke up happily because the tent had kept us dry although we had bad rain and thunderstorm all night long. And we were even more lucky because the rain stopped! So we fixed our clothes on our backpacks and started our trip. This day, we wanted to reach Stensjön, which is the end of the first stage. While the trip on Saturday wasn't that nice because it passed a lot of streets, houses and stuff, this second half of the first stage was way better! The nature was beautiful and so I soon forgot that I had pretty bad sore throat since I woke up.

 

After a few kilometers we reached Stensjön and had enough time to drink a hot cup of tea at the castle Gunnebo. Also we were able to buy a few bottles of water. There, we made some more experiences with the friendliness of the Swedish people. The shop owner asked us if she could fill up our bottles because she saw them on our backpacks and even therefor she left the shop alone for a few minutes. She also said that everyone would do this If we said that we were on a hike, and that we could come back at all times to refill the bottles. Unbelievable!


The last challenge on this day was to search a place to sleep. We soon noticed that this wasn't that easy in this area, because the ground was either granite, moor, bog, high roots or just flooded because of the rain. But luckily we found a place in the forest again that was just big enough to put our tent on. So we had our dinner in the tent again because it started raining. We also had another thunderstorm that evening. Happy about the fact that we could put up the tent before the rain started but also a bit sad that we couldn't eat outside, we fell asleep that night.

Saturday, 8/27 2011, our first day on the Bohusleden

On Saturday, after having a good night at a couchsurfer's house in Gothenburg, we started our trip. After having a big thunderstorm in the morning, the sky looked better and we hoped to get trough the day without so much rain. We took the train from Gothenburg to Lindome, and while watching the sky through the window we noticed that it turned darker and darker...

 

And so all our fears came true: at the time we put up our backpacks, it started raining heavily. So we hoped that our rain-clothes, that had gone along with us through so many rainy days and never soaked trough, would keep us dry. But we seemed to be dogged by bad luck that day. We couldn't believe it, but just after one hour walking through the rain the water came out of our sleeves. And the rain got even heavier... sometimes we couldn't see the way in front of us because the raindrops kept our sight. Streets soon turned into small rivers. At that time, we looked at each other and, for a moment, we thought about giving up and going back to the train station immediately to drive back to Gothenburg. But we just kept on hiking... And after a few hours and about only 10 kilometers we reached a forest. The first stage normally got 19 kilometers, but we didn't care because we were so wet and in the forest there seemed to be a place where we could put up our tent (and where the forest soil wasn't flooded). Thankfully the rain stopped for a few minutes so we could put up the tent. We just hoped that the tent would keep us dry as the rain turned on again.

As we got to sleep that night, we felt a bit sad.
