We were here on a weekend package and our room was fine, clean and functional. A typical Swedish breakfast buffet was included. Unfortunately, as vegans, most of the options were not good for us.

After some coffee and breakfast I go to Christoffers house to finally meet my Swedish ...
... a sign for the school. I asked the bus driver and though she didn't speak English, I pronounced it close enough to where she understood me and pointed me in the right direction. It was surprisingly hot and humid - guess I had not expected that in Sweden! I found the school but it was locked and no one was around. I tried calling the only number I ...
The snow has been falling steadily again this week, so naturally some of it had to be shaped into a Star Wars character. Pete and Daniel spent a good few hours making Jabba the Hut out of snow while I was sick in bed.
They made it in honour of Shell's 50th birthday which was on Tuesday. Also in honour of the event, we were all invited to Shell & Anki's house just down the road from here for afternoon tea. Their house is stunning! I was blown away ...
