Road Trip 2018, Part 19
Our last stop on the island of Öland (still 18th July) was at the small seaside town of Färjestaden. The name means Ferry Town.
The Öland Bridge (~ 6000 meters long) seen from the harbour at Färjestaden, was looking kind of mystic in the dim evening light.
Before this bridge was built (1972), ferries were the only way to cross the strait between the island and the mainland.
I think the only ferries still running now are just for passengers – and bikes!
“Bicycle Ferry to Kalmar, 30 min. Buy ticket aboard.”
We had hamburgers and fries at a harbour café for dinner/supper. (At least that’s what I had. I don’t remember what Per chose!) And then we took a little stroll around the harbour and nearby beach before we drove back over the bridge to our hotel in Kalmar on the mainland.
