Donation-9

As usual, igus® donates one Euro per driven kilometer and so did igus® Sweden. The total amount of 2355 Euro was given to “Frihamnen – Hemlösas Hus” which takes care of homeless people. Mr. Anderberg visited the headquarter of igus® Sweden and received the cheque.

We spent the weekend to get to know the local and famous animal really well – The moose. We started our Scandinavian tour with a sticker of a moose on the back of our iglidur®-car but now we have the change to see these animals in nature. Therefore, we drove to a “Alg Safari”.

Fortunately, it was allowed to feed them and we had some carrots with us.

… as well as iglidur®-bearings.

The mooses are not shy and if there is something to eat, they will get it anyway.


Come in and take a seat.

In the morning, we visited our last Norwegian customer which produces customized operation chairs for offshore applications. Afterwards, we drove to Oslo to say “Good bye” to Norway and cross the border to Sweden.

In Oslo, we drove to the oldest and most modern ski jump in the world – The Holmenkollbakken. It was opened in 1892 and renovated 15 times until today. Furthermore, it is made out of 100 t of steel and the hill record of 141 m was set by Andreas Kofler in 2011 during the World Championship.

Next stop – Sweden! While we were looking for a restaurant for dinner, we drove down the hill to a small neighbourhood. We tried to turn around and suddenly realized that the ground was frozen. No change to get out…A yound man helped us to put on the snow chains for the cars. We were sliding along the ground, knelt on the ice and tried to tension the chains while lying on the ground. After an hour and without any feeling of the toes, this young man took his car and brought sand for us…It worked. We made it up the hill and could leave to continue our tour.

That was representable helpfulness! Thank you, Henrik!

Pictures of the day!-251.2It’s good that we have them.

We arrived at the hotel around 4 pm and started our first day in Sweden after 3 hours of sleep. By the way, we hit the 70,000 km!
