This great report is split up in five parts
Norden means "the North" and usually includes Norway, Sweden,
Denmark, Finland, Iceland and maybe Estonia and a few other places,
it's a broader term than Scandinavia and easier to type.
- Vandrarhem (or Vandrerhjem or Vandrarheim) == youth hostel
- Sverige Leden a marked bicycle route through Sweden
- Vättern Rundan
