Kök & Tvätt: Through Scandinavia on a Tandem Neil Gander read online review & book description:

"There were two doors in the service block on the campsite at Kukkola. On the left door was written the word 'Kök', and on the right it said 'Tvätt'. This meant 'Kitchen'and 'Laundry', and not, as we had concluded, 'Gents' and 'Ladies.'”
Neil and Kathryn arrive in Norway with a tandem bicycle, a pair of sub-standard sleeping bags and a vague plan to ride to Malta. Hitch a lift in the saddlebag as they grind out a trail across Scandinavia, meeting reindeer herders on quad bikes, senile caravanners and a long-distance skateboarder. Experience Sweden's rich variety from the desolate, forest and bog-covered north to the desolate, forest and bog-covered south. Worship at the altars of cinnamon buns, cloudberry jam and tins of rotting fish. Wonder at oversized knitwear, and join in the never-ending search for roadside fruit and the meaning of 'loppis'.
