The following day it's to the beach in Römö - .dk and other places before taking the ferry to Göteborg in .se and another long day to the east coast where the Baltic awaits, but no swimming, the Swedes don't like dogs off the lead.

We visit family in Sweden and Zoa meets the two animal members of the household,


and Lilly.

then on to


where Zoa does get a lovely walk under willows in Ljubljana and run with another dog. Then into


Just for one night, so a short walk in one of the city parks. Before heading to


Where there are lots of wild dogs beside the river. This big one was a great playmate.

Then into
