Our first impressions of Sweden are exactly what we had hoped... if Norway is the UK's equivalent to the Lake District.... then Sweden is most certainly the UK's East Anglia....Dry flat fields stretch endlessly into wide forests that appear to disappear over the horizon before they end... full of wonderfully shades of greens/browns and wonderful scents too
Add to that the idyllic lakes that literally appear at every turn - full of lilly pads, dark but clear waters... and those wonderful bulrushes... and you have a truly wonderful first impression
For those who love adventure (extreme or otherwise).... then this blog post may not be for you today... but for those following our families journey.... this was a true family day!!! A chance to remember exactly why we do this!
If there's something we've learnt along the way its that nothing else really matters... but family!
Happiness is found outdoors and having fun as family... be that a BBQ, paddle in a pedalo boat or simply spending time watching your kids playing in nature's playground.... life really doesn't get better... it may get more exciting, but it doesn't get any better!
For those who know as a family and friends (and i count our regular followers in those numbers).... you'll know that this is the most important part of our journey... a chance to rediscover what really matters!
