Summer wine 2011

Oskar’s and my trip to the greater ranges had to be cancelled for different reasons so we opted for a shorter and slightly less exotic road trip instead. Here’s a recap from our little outing. Bohuslän The first pit stop for this little roadtrip was Bohuslän on the west coast of Sweden mainly to attend […]

Talking the Talk and Walking the Moonwalk
