what a good way to toast my arrival in Sweden...cold, rain and wind! Now the weather is turning to sunny, but today it was changing continuously...
The arrival in the new house was so easy and straightforward that it seemes that I was the owner of the house. Indeed I I have to thank my landlord that was wrote so precise directions that it was difficoult to miss the way (I prevent you with your easy sentence "Swedish people are precise" this guy is French!).
By the way: 1500 km by car....I would say easy??? yes I confirm they were really pleasant, because of the cities where I stopped and because of the people that I met.
Starting from the Swiss part of the trip:
the picture is for whom knows this bike:

Saturday was a long run up to Hamburg, where, I would say, as usual, I met Meike..I promised her a dinner at my arrival, and the deal was respected please Meike I would like you to confirm this!).
Hamburg...always amazing...in the evening, with the sunset on the port, the water in the city, the water-gates (!! new word learnt yesterday)...

after 400 km, a ferry-boat, a the crossing of the Malmo Bridge, and few miles in the Scania region...I finally opened the door of the place that I will call house for the next three months!
It is cool! a big u-shaped house with big windows for the dark winters! I guess it will be not easy to sleep, but as usual I am excited by the first day of work in ESS so I will not sleep so much!
In conclusion, I completed the first step of the mission: landing! at my arrival I didn't see a transparent plexiglas table, and I fell on it...my adventure could finish in that moment, but no problems..Next days will be devoted to the settling down, take the measures of the house, and of the cute town of Lund!
I will keep u updated!
