Ostersund Travel Blog› entry 5 of 7 › view all entries
Today my journey with the inlandsbanan started. I woke up around 5 am (the sun was shining), packed my suitecase had a breakfast and left for the station. At 7.15 am the train started his trip.
Around 10 am we had a little coffeebreak at Fagelsjo. There we cold have a drink with home-made bread. Fagelsjo was a very little town in the middle of nowhere. After this 20 min. break our travel went on.
It was a amazing ride trough nature. A lot of woods, lakes and red houses.
At 12.30 pm we had lunch at Asarna. I'd ordered elk stew a la Big Moose (this was the resaurant) wit potatoes and lingonberries. It was my first time I had eaten elk and I must say I really liked it. After 40 min our trip continued to Ostersund. Some more beautifl nature views.
At 14.30 pm I arrived at my hotel in Ostersund. It was a good hotel and my bed invited me to have a little nap. After this nap i went for a walk to lake Storsjon. For some 400 years, tales about a strange creature living in the depths of the lake have been told in the storsjon area. There are about 500 eyewitnesses. So many surely can't be wrong? But unfortunately I haven't sen it.
In the evening I had dinner at my room with a good movie on tv and prepared myself for the next day.
