After the wonderful Midsommar celebrations (read about them here), the weather turned and grey clouds and fresh winds rolled in.  The moody weather was quite fitting for our visit to the nearby Kronoberg Castle ruins. It was a very dramatic location, with the castle on an island in a lake which we accessed across a rickety bridge. It becomes even … Read More

Finally we arrived in Vaxjo, Sweden in time for Midsommar.  I’ve found it a bit tricky to write about our experience of Midsommar in Sweden, because I can’t find the words to tell you how happy it made me. A big part of our European road trip has been reconnecting with friends from the past.  When I hatched the plan … Read More

Take a look at the pictures and you will begin to know what I … Read More

The decision to visit the island of Møn in Denmark was more born of convenience on our journey to Växjö for Midsommar, than a thoughtful addition to our touring itinerary.  It was also a little bit magical.  I was enchanted from the moment we lined up for our ferry ride.  Ferry rides nearly always make me feel like an excited … Read More

Hannover, Germany and that red line.

We only had one day to explore Hannover because we were on our mission to reach Sweden for Midsommar.  Unfortunately that one day had pretty miserable weather.  Thankfully it didn’t rain much, but it often threatened to and the skies were grey.  The very long drive and our tricky arrival also did not put us in the best mood.  The … Read More
