Vedum, Jonsered, Hindås, Kållered

It's 14th of Mars 2020, and the WHO has declared Covid-19 to be a pandemic on the 11th of Mars. There are still no restrictions nor recommendations in Sweden, but it feels already that most people are staying at home. 
I had to make some changes as well in my plans, for example, my trip to Italy in April had to be canceled. As for trips inside Sweden, I had some tickets that could not be canceled. Today is one of them.
 It's a nice and sunny day, and I will spend most of my time outdoors
 Stockholm Central

 Saturday is usually the least crowded day of the week, but today it is exceptionally empty at Stockholm C.

 I will be traveling to Västra Götaland, so I'm taking X2 train to Skövde
