My daughter did German at school and I know the Scandinavian languages, like English, are very Germanic. Maybe in a couple of years I can look at doing some German after I have got the Swedish down (or 10 years time!).

I assumed, going on the 2k+ kilometres driving I did earlier in the year, that there is forestry everywhere but it stands to reason the less populated areas are where the real action would be.

Btw - on the west side of Vanern, there is the biggest paper processing factory I have ever seen (and smellled!) - near Grums. Incredible to watch the logs all turn up on trains - similar to how you used to see the never ending coal trains near the power stations here - and see through the giant windows at all the paper action.

We are punting on the west side (after some serious exploring) because my daughter has close Norwegian friends and Oslo airport is another good alternative to Goteborg/V?ster?s. The forest goes on for ever there too and the S?ffle kommun is apparently the sunniest place in Sweden!

Yeah, we saw that! One of our overnight stops was at the Rasta motel at Grums. Incredible scale of timber processing in Sweden.

I didn't realise S?ffle was so sunny - it's certainly a nice area, and I want to explore the peninsula that juts out into V?nern.
