Småland – Arrival : Day 1

It took around 5 hours to drive to our little cottage in the forest, just outside Vimmerby.

We made two stops on the way. The first at the “Cloetta” chocolate factory…

Unfortunately we couldn't see the chocolate being made, but there was a little exhibition, and at ten bars for 30Kr, who could say no?!

… and the second stop was at a fantastic little science museum, “Fenomenem” in the village of Old Linkoping – the kids loved it!

We arrived at our “stuga” in Rumskulla around 6 pm, and the kids were thrilled to discover a barn full of outdoor toys, a trampoline, a real piano, and a room with giant black beanbags!
