Kalmar – Öland trip

More often than not we discover the most beautiful sights on the least promising trips… in this case, a weekend getaway to Öland. So far I thought the most beautiful place in Sweden was Gotland, but I was wrong; it is actually Öland (especially the southern part).

At least for now … there’s more to explore. 🙂 Here are some shots from Kalmar and Öland, including Kalmar Slott, Ektorp fortress, Borgholm Castle, Long Erik and Trollskogen.

Midsommar 2011

Midsommar came around again and this time I actually got to witness the traditional celebration, which had eluded me in the previous years.

Looking back, I wish we had more sun and I had paid more attention to detail; and while there’s nothing I could have done about the first thing (by tradition the day is supposed to be cloudy and even rainy), I think the second is due to me wanting to experience the event rather than document it… 🙂

Here are some of the shots I took:
