I travelling to Kiruna on Monday. The sun set in Stockholm between 4 and 4pm, but it was already gone in Kiruna by 2.30pm. So as I left Stockholm at 2.30pm it rapidly went dark.

On Sunday I went down into Hampshire to find the byways. I went ill-prepared relying on the mobile internet for directions. I found that Three doesn’t provide a fantastic service out in the sticks in Hampshire. But when I did pick up some signal I bought a couple of OS map squares and off I went again. I met with a group of 4 land rovers on my way towards Hindhead. We exchanged some tips and I was on my way again.
