Yeah, I can read Danish and Swedish, but to understand when I listen to it is a whole other thing though.

When I hear Swedish or Danish it sounds quite much like German IMO

Dec 22...awfully close to Christmas! I guess most probably won't be going home before Dec 22 itself so it'll open right on time.

My trip to Sweden, part I

During last 2 weeks, I did some 2000 km on those nice roads in Sweden and took some pictures:

E4 heading to Norrköping:


My car broke down just 10 minutes after taking this shot. Thanks to Peugeot and AXA, I spent nice 3 days in Norrköping and the surrounding countryside.


E20, heading from Varberg to Malmö:


















Getting close to the bridge toll gate:

Very nice pics. I didn't get the Turning Torso that clear on my shots a year ago.

What about your car?

I used my Panasonic FZ7 with 12x zoom while cruising just 50 kmph so the pictures are surprisingly sharp. Also, it was very nice weather outside which helped me a lot.

My car was our company's P807, a crappy piece of s*** that should be scrapped as soon as possible. I had two failures that cost me 1.5k euro to fix and forced me to stay 5 more days.

BTW, I've seen many places where two wires were placed across the road, what are they for?

You mean wires that count the amount of traffic passing by?

Checking average speeds to see if more speed checks have to be done in the area (with the potential for speed cameras).

How does this work? I doubt the speed check is the purpose... its impossible to calculate the speed by two wires as you need both time and perch figures...

They're for counting traffic. As X236K notes, it's impossible to calculate speed with them.

I swear VV had said once that it was for calculating speed somehow. I apologize!

From other thread:

I've never seen other than "generic" Sweden licence plate. How do you get that in Sweden? I assume, that cost is pretty high.

I take back my apology. I asked VV and they said that they are indeed for speed.

They have those custom plates in Denmark too. Usually only the more expensive cars.

The distance between the wires is way to small to get a good view of the speed. When we see this in NL it's always used for counting traffic
