This morning on the way in to Sarna I saw what I thought was an amazing Bronze age stone formation in the woods as we drove past. On the way back I stopped to look and was I way off target. It was a triple row of stones that were done by hand and were built in 1940 to defend the main road if the Germans ever invaded from Norway. In the woods was a complete defensive trench system, gun emplacements, underground barracks and all sorts. Ventilation systems for underground chambers were still there. There was an enormous metal trapdoor which opened to a ladder to an underground chamber. Unlike in the UK this was all just there to be explored free and with no health and safety fears by anyone.
Both retired this year and decided to embark on a long trip in our camper van Mack to Scandinavia. We intended to go for three months but Bernie having pneumonia put matters on hold. Now the plan has scaled back and we hope to travel around Denmark, Norway and Sweden. We will have to save Finland for another time.... full info
