Örebro --> Stockholm, ice skating 26 Mars 2011, 184 km.

Sometimes you have to do things even though the conditions not are perfect.
This was such an occation.

It had not been possible to skate from Örebro to Stockholm (or opposite) since 2003.
Now there was a chance and we took it even though the surface of the ice was
miserable almost all the way. (And we had to take a taxi between the lakes.)

All photos are taken by me with a mobile phone camera.
