Now our second child was born, Aurelia, the name means the golden light. Because right now it’s the darkest time of the winter and the new cycle of light has just began after winter solstice.
Designed by Matts Larsson and manufactured with care and quality by the Swedish Army between the 1930’s to 1960’s, where each coat got a three crown stamp ‘Tre Kronor’ as quality approval. This coat is the warmest and coolest vintage winter wear out there.
On an early November morning I saw clear skies ahead and drove off for a fine day in Västra Götaland, to visit a megalithic site, and as it happen also some of the beautiful sites along the way.
This year has been really active so it’s time to gear down and take it slower and create good vibes at home ahead of the birth of our second child. Next year will be full of adventures if all goes well.
I wish you all a fine autumn,
This is my realm, this is my loyalty and for this I share my life. Here’s some footage and photos from the Alvastra Abbey Ruins.
Went out to find good spots for photo sessions, and this medieval fort ruin, called Ragnhildsholmen, was great. Ragnhildsholmen belong to Norway around 1250’s when it was built. Sweden won over the whole region in 1658 in The Roskilde Peace Treaty negotiations.
Our first child was a summer solstice child, and our second will be a winter solstice child. One in the peak of the flourishing year and the second to be the reborn light at the darkest time of the year.
The last day of April was the first real good spring day and May has come out mostly sunny so far – not that warm, but sunny and the long Nordic days give you a sense of timelessness.
After our travels and time all-three-together I’m now spending much more one-on-one quality time with Florens. Of course I’ve already been a sort of stay at home dad, while traveling and at home,
The last 6 months have been so amazing, yet there’s so much more to come and be done. But for the nearest now, and the summer to come, we’ll be in the north,
In this post I’ll show you the various vegetarian and vegan food alternatives you can find in Split. We stayed for three weeks all in all and went to eat at the places at various times,
Every morning I take a walk with Florens and we get some fresh stuff back home for breakfast. The morning ocean air, the rays of sun and pleasant warmth together with the surrounding old,
A good indication you’ve been at the right place is that you feel like you’re leaving when it’s about to get much better. We had a fine winter and early springtime during our stay in Mostar.
The winter is gone already, and springtime is already here in Mostar. What else to call the time you already sit on the balcony and walk around in lighter jackets? We are rounding off our travels for this time,
There are almost 60 000 tombstones (monoliths) like these in Bosnia & Herzegovina, called stećci. These ones in Radimlja are easy to visit, being just 3 km near Stolac. Otherwise many of them are located on high altitudes and in forests.
A good time to visit the site of Daorson is in the spring and autumn, because the heat and the vegetation can limit your movement and put you at risk for snakes. The ancient megalithic ruins are located on top of the high hill in Ošanić where it is believed that settlements have existed ever since 1600-1500 BCE.
2016 was full of road trips and adventures, plus many things accomplished for both of us. For 2017 one big thing will be for us to move to a bigger place, as the one room apartment has done for us what it could.
I visited the former secret military aircraft base near Mostar in Gojnice. It’s abandoned and for me the experience was that of an magnificent echo chamber. There are several objects like these in Bosnia,
