Malmö

We made another long journey south to Malmo and parked up in the most expensive campsite yet…AND you have to pay extra for showers WTF?!

With only being able to afford a day here we decided to catch the bus into Malmo and explore the city.

We hopped off the bus at the Modern Art Museum, collected an audio guide and walked around two very different but fascinating exhibitions-the best yet! The first was an exhibition by artist Niki de Saint Phalle, brightly coloured illustrations and sculptures covered the walls with a very dark underlying thought process. The next was a photography exhibition on Irving Penn, showcasing his work from the last 60 years with a minimalist approach to photography, in the fields of fashion, portrait and still life- a-maz-ing.

We then wondered through the streets, past St Petri church, into the main square where the old town hall stands prominently. Then over to the harbour, which is being seriously modernised, and up to the museum quarter. We couldn’t resist the old tram that runs around the park, so for a small charge we jumped on and for 15 minutes felt like we were in the 1900’s!

We finished off the day by walking back along the sea front towards the campsite with the Oresund bridge elegantly floating above the sea in the distance. We’ll be crossing this tomorrow back into denmark…
