Day Trip To Sweden

Husb and I went on a bus from Denmark to Sweden today, across THE BRIDGE which featured in the television series of the same name. We spent a few hours exploring Malmo, which has an ‘English Shop’ that sells Marmite for British expats to smuggle across THE BRIDGE because it’s illegal in Denmark. We found a sculpture of a cat by the river, a weird fountain and a great Design Museum.

I haven’t done any sketching since I’ve been here. I’m on holiday and having a break. It’s lovely. Here’s a view from the bus as we crossed THE BRIDGE.

    Lovely, thanks for sharing your vacation! Don’t show the cat sculpture to Sparta Puss…she may demand one of herself for your garden. 😀

      She would! Although she’s put on so much weight since we’ve been away it would be a very unflattering sculpture.

    The Bridge and Marmite. Two things I thoroughly enjoy. That’s Denmark off my list of places to live: marmite illegal. Why? What do they do with all that yeast extract from their beer manufacture then?

      It’s the salt, apparently. They’re very strict on it 😕

    Good for you! Sounds like a fun trip.
    We enjoyed watching the UK (original) version of “The Bridge” on DVD not long ago. The US version doesn’t appeal, though….

      Yes, we watched the original, compulsive viewing. It was only just over an hour from Copenhagen to Malmo and the bridge is spectacular
