3-day motorcycle adventure to Öland

Långe Erik

This motorcycle trip to Öland, Sweden, was in a way a milestone, as it was the first trip after quitting my job, to work freelance and to spend more time on adventuring on my motorcycle. Öland is a fascinating place with great roads, lots sites to see, and thousands of years of history, and was an obvious choice for a short weekend trip.

Day 1

The short weekend trip – actually, it was a 3-day trip – started out Saturday early morning going to the Lund Cathedral.


It’s a Romanesque, Lutheran cathedral built of sandstone, and completed in 1145, that on the outside has changed numerous times and have today only little resemblance to the original church. Inside, however, little has changed, and the crypt and the aspe are unchanged.

Unfortunately, I did not get to see the cathedral, as I simply could find my way there. You’d think it is easy with GPS and what not, but when all the roads that leads somewhere are blocked, and the rest are dead ends, getting there is not that easy.

After visiting Lund, I had to meet Thonny outside a town called Höör. And as I spend a little too much time eating breakfast with the family and a little extra on making bad road choices, I was running out of time. So the cathedral would have to wait. It has been there since 1145, so it will probably be there for a visit another time.

Off I went, to meet Thonny. I have been riding with Thonny for longer trips the last couple of years, and our riding preferences are very compatible. I was looking forward to riding with him again.
