Gävle harbour. I got the feeling the employees operating these just left for their lunch brake and never returned. One day business is flourishing, the next day it’s gone…
Almost two years since my last post, it sounds like such a long time when you say it. I will get into what I’ve been up to some other time, but for now I would just like to say that I’m back in the saddle. Oh, before I forget, thanks for still following my blog in spite of my absence.
I spent Christmas at my sister’s house in southern Sweden. Me and my parents had booked a flight to Copenhagen, Denmark on the 23thrd where we had planned to meet up with my sister and brother-in-law before driving back to their house, just an hour from the Danish border. Unfortunately there was a massive snowstorm in southern Sweden and Denmark that day so after a delayed flight and delayed luggage we didn’t have any time left to spend in Copenhagen. It’s difficult to imagine these pictures of green fields and endless shores were taken just two days later, on Christmas Day.
On New Year’s Day, me, my sister and 85 other lunatics had a nice refreshing swim in the sea. This was my first time at the annual Nyårsdoppet (literally: New Year’s dip) in Ystad, Skåne. But not the last. The water temperature was around 5-6 degrees, apparently warmer than usual. For my last “dip” I was on my own, as no one seemed keen to go in a second time.
Thanks Brian for the pictures!
