"Swedish adventure "
Our plan was to visit Denmark and Sweden, taking in the famous Oresund Bridge/tunnel, so we drove north first. The crossing from Frederikshavn to Goteborg was easy to book on line, and the port easy to find! Excellent crossing, dead on time, nice ferry and bags of room. Plenty of outside seating protected from the wind was appreciated. A very pleasant experience all round.

"How not to book your journey"
I arrived in Frederikshavn mid-afternoon on 18th August and wondered if I could catch an earlier ferry on the next day. So I went to the Stena line terminal to ask. When I found the booking office and explained to the official in charge what I wanted to do, ie catch an earlier ferry, he looked very confused and said, you have already missed the one you booked on. I had accidentally booked for the wrong day and luckily was able to buy another for the 19th. The crossing itself was fine, unlike the weather. It rained incessantly from Gothenburg to Orebru, although it was fine in Stockholm.

All good except that there were several bars on board but only one was open so long wait to get a coffee.
