Roadtrip 2013: On my way home to Västerås, accident

After taking a bath at Pinneviksbadet in Lysekil it was time to go home and start working again. I would liked to have continued on the roadtrip, but time was running out.


After just a couple of swedish miles heading for Uddevalla I Had to take the car ferry. Not bad. Free boatride. :) This is Gullmarsleden that goes between Finnsbo and Skår in Gullmarsfjorden.
Looking out a the swedish scenery, enjoying nature and being on water.

Why not another picture, huh?
After that I continued and had to stop to pee (very interesting info I know). After that I continued to find this queue! What has happened!!? Accident! Scary. That peeing might have saved me... Makes you think twice! How easy it is for everything to change. It makes you humble for the greatness in life. I parked the car after the side of the road to go see what has happened. I took the camera with me.

An helicopter arrives, and lands right besides the highway.
Wounded people carried to the ambulance.
Head-on collision... I talked to an eyewitness that saw the car crash. He said that the silver car (Toyota Avensis), to the right in the picture turned right over to the other lane and the crash with the white car was apparent. How very sad.. No one got killed at least (according to ambulance personal). If I had not stopped and pee it might have been me.. Drive carefully people. Don´t drive in a hurry.
The ambulance helicopter did thankfully not have to transport anybody.
White car demolished. The silver Toyota has been lifted up to the tow car. It took a couple of hours before we could continue.

After the accident I decided to stop at a restspot that trafikverket has. They have toilets there and so fort. Found some polish car, that stopped to camp here. It is not allowed.. Well I had a little food and water and then continued. Still a long way home.

Getting closer to home.. A Volkswagen bus has broken down. I have seen at-least two broken down VW buses on this holiday, not reliable?

Soon the roadtrip was over and I was home again.

Roadtrip 2013: Still in Lysekil, some more pictures

This pictures are taken with a Canon camera, the other pictures are from my mobile phone.

The two first pictures are when heading for Kungshamn, and the rest is from Lysekil.


Well, as I said in the last post, heading for Kungshamn I say this wind power, and liked to light. So I had to stop. But I did not really catch the light. The trustworthy Kia down to the right.

Can you see the magic light? Nah? What? :)

Arriving late evening in the harbor of Lysekil. The sun is going down. Sitting in the Kia car, being steered down by people going by. The people going by in the harbor are unfortunately not giving me a very good first impression..

And a bird is flying.

"The Birds are gonna get some." - Jim Rohn

Guess I´m trying to do something that looks simplistic, not doing a very good job. It not for nothing they call me: "The shadow from Bronx" :)

Early morning sun, the rocks are being hit by the sun.

Seabird checking me out.


At-least I got some pictures of the rainbow. It showed better in real life. Beautiful colors.

Do you see the colors?

I wish I could fly.

More rocks, and an big anchor in the foreground.

Looking Simplistic? Nah, 

Me in rainbow picture. I call this picture "hands-up". Am I afraid that I wont be in the picture or what?

You gotto have boats in the pictures or else something is wrong.

Beautiful. Look a bit like a painting, its not.

What am I trying to accomplish here?.. I have no idea, just being a camera hog I guess. Can you see the rainbow?

Bird Flying high.

So this is were I slept for the night. The black car is from France. Two people sleeping in that car. Also somebody sleeping in the car up to the left. But it left pretty early the day after.

Pinneviksbath. early morning. Just me awake.


Armchairs in the town of Lysekil.

Pretty soft to lay here.


The town of Lysekil, and the cold bath house, closest.

Here there were going to be a sailing competition, in the next week. But I had no time to stay. But I guess it would have been interesting to watch.

Last picture of Lysekil. After taking a bath it was time to head for home (Västerås). Time to go back to work.

Roadtrip 2013: Last town on trip, Lysekil

I arrived pretty late to the town Lysekil, trying to find a nice spot for the night. First I looked in the harbor, but no, didnt like the place.

Travelling around in Lysekil I finally found a nice spot. Pinneviksbadet.

I now, to many pictures, but I still have not taken them all in this post.

Arriving late at the town of Lysekil. Here in the harbor the company Lysekil, doing pickled herring is located. Did not find a nice spot for the night here. I sat in the harbor for a couple of hours, but did not feel welcome! The truckers and the cars really was steering me down, got me irritated. So I decided to look for a better place to stay the night.

However after some searching going up and down every street in the the town, I finally found this nice parking-lot. Free for the night. A bathing place called Pinneviksbadet.

Soon time to go to bed in my little car. :)

Laying in the car ready for sleep. There were quite a lot of people taking a late night walk in this areas so I could hear them talking about about my little car.
- Mum, is someone sleeping in that little car?
-Yes it seems to be the case.
:-)
- Is the person homeless?
- Probably.

Morning, rise and shine. A beautiful day is waiting!

Parking lot meter has broken down. Black bag over it.
I thought that I had to pay to stay here after 08.00 but fortunately the parking-meter was broken.

The Pinneviksbath also had toilets. They had forgotten to look this toilet over the night.

Cykelhållare för bagagelucka
Back to Pinneviksbath I found this Hyundai with another construction than the one my car has. Using to transport bikes when you lack caravan towing abilities.

Here (Pinneviksbath) thirsty dogs (and other animals) could drink some water. Great!
