Göta Kanal sommaren 2014

Under somrarna i 20 års tid har s/y Henrietta seglat längsmed Höga kusten på svenska sidan. Inspirerad av filmen Göta Kanal eller Vem drog ut proppen? företog vi denna sommar en kanaltur, vilket betyder i praktiken mycket motorköras. Resan gick från Vasa, genom både Göta- och Trollhättekanal ner till Göteborg och tillbaka. Under den cirka månadslånga färden byttes besättning fyra gånger. Här följer ett bildspel från den resan.

Riksgränsen, May 2010

This winter has provided very cold temperatures and heavy snowfall, this means it's going to take a long time to melt away.

We spent an extended weekend in May travelling to Riksgränsen, on the border between northern Sweden and Norway, to take advantage of our last opportunity to do some downhill skiing.

The weather was for most parts sunny and temperatures reached above 20 degrees C. The extreme temperature changes also meant there was a chance of fog, which we also experienced.

Riksgränsen Sweden - Norway, May 2008

Our last ski / hiking trip of the season was to Riksgränsen. Unfortunately the weather wasn't on our side with lots of rain and snow during all three days. At the same time southern Sweden enjoyed record warm and sunny weather. That's so unfair!

Hiking Kungsleden, September 2005

This is the fifth and last stage of the Kungsleden hiking path. The stage is from Ammarnäs in the north to Hemavan in the south. All in all it took the two Martonen brothers four days to complete this 78 kilometer stage in difficult terrain. It was cold and windy but the beautiful and historical landscape made it all worth it.
