I’m off for 4 days to Scandinavia so the blog will be quiet; it promises to be a fun journey. I fly to Oslo this evening, then spend Thursday and Friday in the Finnskogen, a wooded area to the north east of Oslo. I’m giving a speech on EU welfare states at the United seminar organised by JEF and Europeisk Ungdom Norway. I then take a night train to Stockholm and will spend Saturday and Sunday with Helena on an island in the Baltic and return to London on Monday. All I need is some farsk potatis och sill and that will make the perfect Nordic weekend! 🙂

@jonworth As a regular Berlin-FFO commuter, I can confirm I've seen the police do a full check on the EC 40 multiple times.
@jonworth if this is the EC train that crosses from Rzepin into Germany and halts at Frankfurt Oder the checks used to be irregular but since the War started in Feb it's for every train every time. and yes they behave like utter bastards. sorry you had to experience it first hand.
