Craft, stitchin' and sustainable living

Time: 10:40pm Location: Bjorko, Sweden

Time for another quick update from Scandi, unfortunately without pics again (but I promise to do a big holiday slide round-up when I get home and can download them all from my camera).

Sweden is a funny place. I can't exactly put my finger on it, but there's something different about it that makes you smile. Maybe it's the excitement in the air as summer brings the first few hot days following a long, cold winter. Maybe it's the fields and fields of bright yellow canola flowers set on a backdrop of blue sky and massive wind turbines (yay for sustainable Sweden!). Or maybe it's just because bow-ties seem to be trendy streetwear. Sweden is also a fun place, and I really hope to come back.

Sweden (like Denmark) is also the sort of country you could just eat your way through - and I can proudly say that I've learnt some Svenska, if only menu-related words (but they are the most important ones, right?). The breads, cheeses, meats, fish - it's all fantastic. And then there's the beers - Sam has been very pleased to find a few bars that have beer menus the size of encyclopedias. Yes, it will be back into the exercise routines when we get back to Australia, however, I do intend to bring some strawberry and basil white chocolate home with me.
