Västervik and Tjust Archipelago

The second week of vacation. We visited our friends Erik and Jessica with their Stella down on the east coast of Sweden – Västervik. Took the chance to go out to Idö in Tjust archipelago and get a new farmer’s tan as well as some nice photos of the archipelago.

Tjust archipelago on the east coast of Sweden. It’s easy to go, just take the boat from Västervik (about 100 SEK one way).

For lunch with a view, stop at Idö and get yourself some smoked shrimps, Skagenröra or smoked salmon. Call a head if you want to have the best seats in the house. It tends to be crowded and booked.

Enjoy the view at Idö or read a book, if you know Swedish.

Go out to Idö on the first boat in the morning and you’ll have plenty of time to walk around and enjoy the views, weather, lunch and ice cream before you head back to Västervik. If you forget to put on sun lotion – you’ll get a farmer’s tan. Without any doubt.

Church in Västervik

Nearby the train station in Västervik you’ll find a pretty epic church. It’s even interesting for us atheists. Just look at it!
