did we ever finished the trip to England?

Time is flying! We did finally got home from the trip to England. With the Moke! :-)

Last day in Denmark we camped at Rågeleje and woke up just to throw all stuff in the cars and head on to a nearby marina. We wanted some seafood for breakfast and we found an open shop selling fresh shrimps and bread. We had drinks and mayo so sitting by the nice yatchs in the marine we started the day in a nice way.

We stopped at a marina not far from Rågeleje to have shrimps for breakfast!

We drove along the north coast of Sjaelland to Helsingör where we took the ferry over to Sweden. It was now already way past lunchtime so we skipped visits to relatives and friends and drove north along the west coast. We had a plan to reach Gothenburg or Trollhättan before dark. After repair/swap of fuel pump on the Moke, and a late lunch at Hovs hallar we drove on. Black clouds looked scary by the east horizon a bit into the country but we were lucky and had fine weather. We even stopped for a swim in the sea at Varberg, very nice!

We, the crew in the Moke,  reached the summer house of the family quite late and stayed the night. The crew in the Cooper drove on in the night as they were eager to meet up with friends at a bike meeting/party.

After two nights in the summer house and a homecoming party, for the ones that spent their summers in the surroundings 20 years ago, we headed back to Uppsala. After three weeks on the roads we were finally back home. The Moke had behaved well on another long trip.

Stay tuned for more late reports about Mini and Moke life in Sweden and abroad!
