Catching up

Written by kevin

You might have noticed that since moving to Sweden updates here have been few and far between. I think it’s mostly because there’s not so much to tell people about, life in Sweden is fairly similar to life anywhere else in Europe/North America.

Today, while I’m doing laundry, I’m making an effort to catch up a bit. Later on there will be an entry about my weekend in Stockholm at the end of June.

For now, here are some pictures from a hiking/camping trip to Omberg eco-park a few weekends ago. Lake Vättern is amazingly clear, apparently it’s safe to drink almost everywhere. Even in the harbour at Borghamn it was clean and free of the usual oily scum.

A narrow path leads through a dark coniferous forest, shafts of light shine down through gaps in the foliage. View across a large lake, framed by treetops in the foreground.  On the far side are low hills and above them a clear blue sky. An old two-storey building in gardens.  In the foreground are a sunlit wooden bench and table. Fields of golden crops stretch away from the camera, divided in the middle by a hedge with a single tree.  In the background red-painted farm buildings sit among trees.
