In August 2020 I explored Sweden with backpack and tent. After a ferry ride from Swinemünde to Ystad, I traveled north by bus and train. Accompanied by lucky coincidences, I walked through the colorful alleys of Ystad, went hiking on the Kullen Peninsula, climbed through the funny wooden sculpture “Nimis” and partied and slept under the open sky at a lake in beautiful Gothenburg. In the following posts I report about my experiences on the hikes along Höga Kusten and through Swedish Lapland.
