Öxnered, Ed

Today I'm visiting the Dalsland region, I will travel as far as to Ed close to Norway.

The station is decorated with painting, representing famous places in Sweden
Breakfast in the train, the caviar and egg are back

Before arrival at Göteborg, I have time for lunch too

Time for a beer

Tumulus from iron age

It is said that King Karl XII was passing by here, probably on its way to Norway. Here is a hotel named after him.

When it starts raining, I'm finding out that my train back is canceled. Instead a replacement bus is on its way, or actually, it is a minibus with few passengers.
After negotiations with the driver, I manage to make him drive me to Mellerud instead of Öxnered in order to make it for my next train. I arrive to Mellerud seeing the train coming.

It is the same train I saw earlier today

After a stressful minibus trip from Ed, I can relax now in an empty 1st class compartment
