HOW TO GET HERE :)
If you are flying from another country you will be much better off going to Copenhagen Airport Denmark than Stockholm and there is a train going straight from the airport to Karlshamn. The train is called 'Öresundståg' with final destination 'Karlskrona' but you should buy your ticket for 'Karlshamn' and when getting off at Karlshamn just follow the crowd until you see the first bus stop (it has a green 'B' on it) take bus 310 to 'Svängsta' and get off at final destination called 'Svängsta Centrum'. The ticket you bought for Karlshamn will take you all the way. From there you will be picked up by car :) You are always free to call if you need any help, just ask for the number :)
