2012.08.14 -- Why we came to Lund...

2012.08.14 Wednesday Lund, Sweden

After a very long day of travel, we arrived safely in the lovely university town of Lund, Sweden.
(Every trip which ends safely is, by definition, a wonderful trip.)

Lund is near the southwestern coast of Sweden; it's a very pleasant one-hour train trip from the Cophenhagen airport; as an additional bonus, the train station is also part of the airport.

I love Google Maps!  (If you click on the map, you can see the whole thing.)  We walked from the train station to our hotel, Maria came to meet us, and we walked from the hotel to the park, then stopped for a very nice meal together.

I love Satellite view on Google maps even more; I use the regular maps for practicalities, and Sat maps for fun.

Most of the streets in the older area (where we are staying) are pedestrian only, which makes for peaceful walking, as the cyclists are very polite.  Which is good, cause there are bikes everywhere.
