How can I miss Norway #@#, I’m gonna spend more time towards the weekend and finish the same. In the mean time here is some amazing fact about how Sweden and Denmark are connected. Its called the Oresund bridge and this
links Copenhagen(Denmark) & Malmö(Sweden). The Oresund Bridge consists of a tunnel, a bridge and an artificial island. It’s a magnificent drive that I undertook from Malmo to Copenhagen. It was in the morning hours and I was traveling from Malmo, the third largest city in Sweden, to Copenhagen.
