Bye Bye Björkliden

(1 March)

This morning at breakfast we were not able to see Lapporten due to clouds on the top of the mountains. Down in the valley it was clear though.

We packed up our bags and dropped them off at a drop off point outside the hotel. At 10.30 they would drive the luggage down to the railway station. We were told it would be dropped off inside the waiting area. Once we got there, however, all luggage had been dropped off in the snow next to the road at a bus stop…

Our train was to depart at 12.11, on-line up dates showed a small dealay. We stayed in our room until check out, watching Vasaloppet on TV for a bit. The last half hour we sat in the lobby enjoying the views.

The walk down hill to the railway station took about 20 min. It was a beautiful walk in the sun and snow.

In the end the train departed only 6 minutes late.
