A Benz “Sommar”

You should always grasp the opportunity when the schedule offers some days without obligations. So did I. My girlfriend was immediately hooked by the idea of some spontaneous days in Denmark and Sweden. The trusty Benz was ready to go. We just did some packing and left Berlin, always heading north.

But Swedish tarmac and gravel roads were more than a compensation for the 2-day rest in Denmark. Endless forests, blooming meadows, huge lakes and isolated reservations delivered stunning impressions. Calm hideaways and perfect weather gave it all in the middle of an unbelievable May.
