Day 66: Mission Cashless Laundry
Östfjällsstugan to Sälen Lindvallen
A very short day. After a quick swim in the lake I make my way down towards Sälen. Initially a wide gravel path followed by a tar sealed path. It's, since resuming in Skorovas, my first dry feet day!
The skiing village (or mountain biking villige in summer as it looks) is extremely spread out. My small airbnb however is conveniently located close to a supermarket. Before shopping though I absolutely have to do my laundry. Especially after these hot few days a couple of days ago, my clothes are in a really bad shape. Even for me, walking in them, was uncomfortable.
This town is a cash less town. So only credit card or a Swedish pay app accepted. For the laundry I'd need to download yet another app to pay and start my laundry. As I am not Swedish and have no Swedish bank account, I can't use the app. It's a tiring back and forth with the reception of the shopping center (where the laundry is located) until I finally have my clothes washed. Took me longer get the machine started than the washing itself. Making things unnecessary complicated...
The rest of the day is relaxing, cooking, a bit of sauna and catching up with friends and family.
