Our last hotel night in Skåne at Spångens Gästgivaregård was so disappointing! 😞 Our experience with the dinner last night I mentioned in my last post. At breakfast this morning it turned out that they had forgotten the lactose free food I emailed with the before arrival. That is not acceptable!! Lucky for them I’m not lactose intolerant so I could eat a little butter on the sandwiches but something like that can’t be forgotten in case you have a person really allergic.
I’m a little annoyed at myself that I didn’t make more research about the hotel in advance. I suppose I thought that all hotels I could use with the gift certificate would be fairly equal. Clearly we would have had a much better experience if we had used the gift certificate at one of the hotels in Tällberg (one of our favorite towns to visit for mini weekends and we’ll go there again in 3 weeks!). That would have been a much better use… Oh well, can’t do much about that now…
After breakfast we started driving to Söderåsens National park (B), a 5-minute journey from the hotel which is why you can’t see point A on the map! Unfortunately the fantastic weather we’ve had the past week didn’t show up today so my joints did not feel as good today plus that it was raining when we went to the national park. Instead of walking we drove on one of the few roads you can access with a car. At least we saw a little from the park. Lots of beautiful Beech trees.
Our next stop was at Hovdala Castle (C) where we had decided to meet our old friends, Ulla and Lasse. Ulla used to work as a librarian at the library I visited as a teenager. She’s my favorite librarian ever! 😊
Oh almost forgot, before arriving at the castle we passed by a town which had this sign at the entrance. We passed the sign and I told Mathias he had to go back so I could take a second look… yes, the sign has two UFO!
Next we left Skåne and drove to Älmhult (D) to pick up Mathias’ father before heading to Jönköping where we’ll stay the night. Tomorrow we will go HOME! After almost two weeks away I’m so looking forward to sleep in my own bed again!
