Apologies for the hiatus, of course it was not intended to be quite so long...we have now left Sweden and will be embarking upon some new adventures at some point shortly, more details once they are available. Until then, there are a few more pictures from our time in Sweden still to be uploaded.

Sigtuna lakeside in the snow

During the winter the scene at the lakeside is always changing. Here the ice is starting to thin.

Vaxholm with friends

We took some friends to see Vaxholm, most of the ice in the sea had melted and gone, but the harbour on the north of the peninsular was still iced over.

Uppsala in the melt

Visiting Uppsala in the melt, we found a book tied to a tree by the university, perhaps some kind of student ritual for making the knowlege grow in the springtime, or just a drunken hatred of this particular book?
