Sweden Rally in 2019

February 28, 2019 | Posted by misfitwanders | Adventures, Lifestyles, Party, Sweden, Traveling

Smoke overtook the sky as we began to walk closer to the forest road. People were sprawled out in groups through the forest. Many had a campfire going and roasted hot dogs, while others were having trouble just standing. It’s a day where the forests are filled with drunk people and exhaust from the rally cars. This is something Sweden prides themselves with. The Sweden Rally.


Each guard stood near the road with a whistle in hand. Waiting for the time when the roaring engines would begin! As the clock ticked closer to the time, some people began to get rambunctious. Finally, the announcement began a quick countdown. 


The first car was only seen in a flash. I had no time with the camera. We were more prepared for the next one as it zoomed past. Its speed vibrated throughout the forest. The friction on the road picked up sparks as the next car flew past.

We walked close to the road so we could see the action in different angles. The sound of each car thrummed inside my ears as they came closer to the area we stood in. My eyes scanned the crowd taking in many drunken people from all over the world. Flags were spread out to show their homeland. One man dressed in an outfit that had a leprechaun attached. Another guy wore a jester hat. His eyes were glazed over as he grasped his drink as if his life depended on it.

The racing barely had begun and many people were having trouble standing. Die hard rally fans camp out here weeks in advance. The forests become one big party! I guess, that’s one way to do it!

About Me

Misfit Wanders

I´m a kooky girl that likes to travel. I grew up in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, USA. Then moved to Northern California for about 5 years. But now, it's going on 5 years living in Sweden with my hubby and our furbabies, plus our little boy and my mom has joined our crew! Over the pandemic time, it has been hard to travel. Thus, my travel blog had been at a stand still. I started going to a University and I had a baby. Now I'm on a different kind of adventure. But my family and I plan on traveling when we can still. Traveling is something I cherish. New adventures is what keeps me moving, that and a stubbornness. I have a weird sense of humor if you haven´t figured that out from my posts. My writing can be perplexing, but I like to tell stories, and the best way is from my own experiences. So sit back and relax, as you take a spin through my hikes or enjoy following my footsteps as I wander in different countries! Most of my writings will be focused on hikes and the outdoors in Sweden.
