Anyway. I had a good time back home. I spent one week at Herräng Dance Camp - like last year, but I'll give that experience a post of its own, later. Here's a short, illustrated summary of other summery (hihi) things I did:
First I went to Stockholm to spend some time with this new little guy. Gunvald the Puppy. He's cute. He likes to chew on hair and clothes and he is not super fond of going on walks. Probably because he's legs are so short. I can relate.
Here's Gunvald with his owner, a.k.a. my handsom brother. Both me and our mother came to visit him in Stockholm at the same time.
In Stockholm we went on a few short excursions. Like this one to Vinterviken to have a classic Swedish "fika" with coffee and cinnamon buns.
After I came back from Herräng my brother and me drove to the small town Kisa in Östergötland were a bunch of our relatives live. We spent an unusually warm and idyllic day on a small island that belongs to our cousins and where we used to spend a few days every summer when we were children.
We met up with dad in Kisa and together with him, Grandfather and Grandmother I went to visit the mansion Bjärka-Säby, close to where I grew up. Also to "fika". It's a thing.
And then I continued south to my mothers house in Hindås, outside of Gothenburg. Over almost a week I spent time with her, my dear friend Lotten and her family and met up a few other friends in town. Mom spoiled me with good food every day and I did some shopping. Good times!
And that was all for this summer in Sweden! Or actually, maybe not. I'll go back for a few days in September... but who knows how much summer is left by then. Might as well be autumn.
