The border between Norway and Sweden is very long - meaning that it’s actually impossible to guard it at all times. This means that if you know what roads to use you can successfully smuggle stuff back and forth (they’ve made it more difficult these days mind you)
My grandparents made good use of this.
But they didn’t smuggle alcohol or anything like that, oh no They smuggled a bathtub
Their reason for smuggling a bathtub from Sweden to Norway? Norway didn’t have the type of bathtubs they wanted, so they drove to Sweden and brought one there - strapped it to their car and drove back over the border.
Just watched this short documentary on RF (Sweden) by Vice. Despite the reporter being a total lightweight - extremism = bad/ “hope they don’t kidnap me” etc. - interesting to see RF actually go in front of the camera.
Shame Vice let a potentially interesting story go to waste, at the moment I’m really rating a lot of the stuff they are putting out there.
