I tried to navigate to a town in Sweden called Uddevalla using speak destinations in my cellphone. I came to a"Autorama Sweden", "Ottawa suite" and wonderwalla Sweden".
Then I wanted to find "Nordens Ark", which is a zoo for endangered species.
So, how will I pronounce to succeed?
One can use speak destinations in Hebrew and Latin in my Samsung cellphone, but not in Swedish.

I love to travel by train - except when it´s after midnight and the train, which was expected to arrive 30 minutes after midnight was delayed one hour.
We were at Umea station in northern Sweden, and we took this late train because it would arrive after eleven o´clock in the morning the next day to Stockholm.
When we finally came to Stockholm, the train was almost two hours delayed. A german girl who was onboard the train missed her buss to Hamburg.
New high-speed line
We decided to take flight next time, but I have not given up hope of jumping onboard a train again. And there is hope: the new Bothnia line is to be finish this year, so one can take a high-speed train from Stockholm to Umea in about six hours.
But, after all, we had plenty of time to listen to the birds when we were waiting for the midnight-train in Umea.

We greeted friends who have a cottage on a lake. I brought a recording of a Black-throated loon or diver as I tried to attract loons on the lake to respond. In the bright summer night I let the noice roll out on the lake, and I was waiting for respond. It is a thrill to hear the noice of a Black-throated loon, because it sounds like a ghost in the night. The noice of the Black-throated loon have been used in horror films. I understand why.
I`m working just now on my own film, which will be publish later.

I took this photo of the sunset sky at ten o'clock in the evening just Outside our door. It's wonderful to stand there and listen to songs from Willow tits, Warblers and other birds.
