Norway & Sweden By Van - Part 2

Last time I blogged, we were as far north as we'd be able to make in Norway on this trip. Even though Geiranger was very touristic and busy it was a worthwhile visit. We stayed at a camping for one night, as finding free showers in Geiranger…

An Upside to Everything

Last weekend, me and some friends were at mini track-day with our motorcycles. I ended up in a faster group than them, so I was trying to push myself and the bike a bit. While coming out of a lap, just before the pit entry, my bike seized up…

Sweden's Forgotten Car Cemetery

A while ago I went on a little road trip to the west of Sweden. In a tiny place called Båstnäs, there's the remains of a once huge car cemetery. The place is pretty well known these days, people even come from all over Europe to visit it. It…
