... a few feet from a waterfall, listening to the tumult of the river's descent. The beautiful countryside, together with Stockholm, put Sweden very high on our favourite country list. These few days of driving were very nice but uneventful, so I’ll leave it to the photos to tell the ...
I have a treat today. Thanks to Asa, the Duved Ski Patrol team are prepared to let me tag along as an "intern" for the day ! I'm going to go and see how they open the mountain up in the morning, and gain some insight into the job.
