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.
Greetings to you all and may the shorter and darker days ahead burst open more light within all of us. This years summer solstice days were saved by the mere fact that it wasn’t raining.
Here are some thoughts I want to share about our life and my everyday life as a remote working dad, where I’m grateful for the time I get to spend with my toddler and wife.
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.
Friday was our first day of being back in Sweden and it was a very sad Friday. Here are some thoughts on what has happened and happening. No one will get out of this mess clean,
It’s soon time for us to leave Öland and head down to Southern Europe.
The forest nymph is not that much of a spectacular person.
In this post I want to show some daily scenes and share a video collage of a day in Öland. Waking up is amazing in a house surrounded by nature, contemplating during while morning light scares away the night.
Winds halted, gates seemed inviting, arrows flew and she was by my side. Sunday morning to evening was just great. We started off the day with music, as we always do. She takes me to the keyboard and we play –
Just as September was done we were ready to leave the west coast and head out to Öland. Where we plan to stay for a couple of months. It’s lovely here, but very very windy,
There are more megalithic sites in Europe than people are aware of, beside some of the famous ones like Stonehenge and Carnac, from Turkey’s Göbekli Tepe (okey, technically it’s in Asia, but some of the first European settlements were there in ancient times) and all the way from Bosnian megaliths up to the Swedish sites in the north.
As always we travel to places when they are out of season. This time we headed to Öland in late March and early April, and despite sunny days it was chilly and always windy.
The ethno village Äskhults By is a place we go to from time to time. It’s located 40 minutes south of Göteborg a bit inland from the coast and amid a forest and elevated so that you get a beautiful panorama.
Faith is always there. Each day as we wake up whether we call ourselves believers or atheist we’re still having faith in something. We have faith in the intention or vision of what we want to accomplish –
