For our sensitive relatives...

For our sensitive relatives... Our sweet home...

I like to stick to the storyline and tell stories from the beginning, normally...
But this is sort of an emergency post for our slightly more sensitive relatives from all over the world.

After a couple of days traveling in Sweden we decided to leave the bucket showers behind us to enjoy a nice stay in a cottage room with hot shower and laundry service. It seems they don't have such a thing like a laundry in Sweden. At least on our route. You can wash your clothes at a campsite or sometimes in hotels. So if you don't want to slip into stinky underwear you have to spend some money for a night in civilization.

My Dear Carmen, I gonna try to keep it as painless as possible...

This is what you get for $85 !

  • No blankets
  • No pillows
  • No towels
  • No toilet paper
  • No soap
  • No WiFi
  • No TV (I don't count 3 unencrypted channels as TV entertainment)
  • No AC
  • No working bulbs in the bathroom, or fun looking for a working one

This might be a smart move...If you don't get anything, you can't complain about it.

On the good side, you get

  • A bed
  • 2 Chairs
  • A hot shower in a fairly pleasant environment
  • A fridge
  • Hotplates
  • Cupboards
  • Power, water and light (We swapped our non-working bulb with the streetlight in the end..)
  • Smoke sensors
  • A mirror
  • A coffee machine which I rather do not use
  • Mosquitoes and a nice notice that they belong to the Swedish summer. No reason to complain !

A mosquito net. What a great idea this would be...

For the never ending fun, you have to clean your room or pay an extra fee before 11 am.
Also, not to forget, the laundry service is not included in the price

This brings us to our conclusion:

Next time we try campsites. Maybe it will be a strange feeling to be pinched between a Swiss rich-o-mobil and a dutch living room on wheels combined with their pitiful looks. But we can save some money for a six pack of beer as compensation and not to mention, my own blanket is always the best.

Our room - baby not included in price
