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.
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.
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,
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.
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,
Just shaering some scenes from our December days in Mostar. The weather has been really nice, like early spring, blue skies and sunshine.
We landed in Zadar and checked into a fine room in the old town. We had planned to spend two nights in Zadar and two nights in Split before getting to Mostar. That would leave us with at least one full day in both of those beautiful Dalmatian old towns.
At last we went on that road trip up to Norway and the landscapes of fjords, rivers, waterfalls, mountains – like something out of a Lord of the Rings milieu. This time,
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.
It is important to have a good backpack that fits ones backpack and other stuff, especially if you’re a digital nomad and need to take your office with you. I use a 17 inch MacBook Pro and since 17 inch screens are not made by Apple anymore,
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.
This time of the year I always think of Norway and the summer ahead. Last year we traveled for three months but not in Norway, so this year will make up for it big time.
Some years ago I was traveling in India, all was alright until I lost my passport and money! The only precaution I did back then was to make a photocopy of my passport on a thicker quality paper.
This autumn has been full of experience for the three of us, all autumn magic, from sunny days, to lightning & thunder and all that eventually passed to the fading autumn colors and the end of our traveling for now.
We’ve been in south Bosnia & Herzegovina and some time also in Dalmatia in Croatia, for two months and it’s our baby’s first travel. So far so good, which is why I want to share some packing list tips and general experiences.
