We crossed the channel via a ferry from Dover to Dunkirk. It's so easy to travel between countries in Europe compared to the challenges we encountered in Africa. When we arrived in England from the USA we cleared immigration in 5 minutes. They now have an electronic system that is very fast. All you do is stand on the footprints facing the camera and place you passport in the scanner. The gate opens and off you go. No long lines😊 It was even easier to enter France. Drive up to the booth, the officer found a blank page in our passports and stamped the entry date. We need the stamped date because of the 90 day travel time limit for US citizens.
Once we landed in France we spent our time driving instead of seeing the sights until we reached Sweden. Then we slowed our pace. Our first stop was Malmo. It is a very pleasant city. Not crowded with tourists and very pedestrian friendly.
|Oresundsbron - A bridge/tunnel between Copenhaugen, Denmark and Malmo, Sweden. An expensive toll, but very scenic. It is 16 km long with a bridge span, man made island, and a tunnel.|
