    On my very first trip abroad in my newly acquired van, a friend and I travelled 3000 miles in the summer of 2012 through to mid Sweden where we visited a railway museum, (both being train enthusiasts). We used mostly Aires sites which in Sweden were picnic areas during the day on the trunk roads. We tended only to need camp sites every 3 days, one of which in a popular resort required membership of a national camping club (£30).

    On the way north in east Denmark we stayed at a farm which cost about £9 for two nights and in Copenhagen we camped at an Aires in a car park within walking distance of "The Mermaid". Before we crossed the Oresund Bridge/tunnel (£70) there was also a toll bridge in Copenhagen which although it accepted my card, no charge was made. We camped in the centre of Stockholm at an Aires site with all facilities (Car park) under a flyover but at £25 and within walking distance of the city centre was a bargain, especially in Sweden.

    We then continued down the east coast and took the ferry (£131) to Rostok and on to Hamburg to visit the Miniature Wunderland (model railway museum). One day here was not time enough to see the enormous layout. Then made our way home after four weeks away.

    The Aires book was worth the initial cost and my SatNav was indispensable especially in the country areas using the book's co-ordinates.

    Anorak??

    Hi Gluck and thanks for the info, we are not going any further than Malmo before heading south to Gedser to get the Scandialines ferry to Rostol. Like the sound of the miniature Wunderland though, will have to visit that !!Mitzimad, we are going 28/5/15 to 3/7/15
