The Swedish countryside

During my days in Sweden I visited the Swedish countryside around Näsåker. It was a long drive on mainly well kept roads, but partly also on gravel roads. I find them rather hard to drive on, because you can't see damage in the road as well as on asphalt roads and I always feel like…

Some much needed rain

So then came a day of rain. Finally. After weeks of drought and heat, finally some rain came. And with all the forest fires going on in Sweden it was very much needed. I was so happy when I looked outside the window in the morning and noticed all the clouds, that were hanging so…

Explorations

For a few days, I drove around quite a bit to explore the area around where I was staying in Sweden and see the different landscapes this place had to offer. I followed some small streets and found little creeks and lakes in the middle of the forest. The sun was shining so bright, that…

Lunar Eclipse

A few days ago a spectacular event took place: A full lunar eclipse and a so called "blood moon". Of course that was something I definitely didn't want to miss! So I went to the Skeppsmalen coast with a beautiful lighthouse, to see the blood moon rise above the ocean. What I hadn't thought of…

Skuleskogen Nationalpark II

I'm writing this now after a long and exciting day. We went hiking in the Skuleskogen Nationalpark again and took the south entry this time. We went to see Slåttdalsskreva and took the hiking trail over Slåttdalsberget to get there. It was super hard to  go all the way up, especially since the way soon led out…

Into the forest

Yesterday evening I drove around a bit to explore the area around Örnsköldsvik. I found this remote road, leading deep into the forest. I stoped the car and got out to explore a bit of the forest nearby. It was beautiful in the evening light of the (seemingly) soon setting sun. After spending some time…

Finally

Finally finally finally I can say that I am in Sweden again! Yesterday I took a flight from Germany to Stockholm and drove all the way up to Örnsköldsvik! It was so interesting to take the same road as we did last winter and see how different the landscape looks with just a few months…

Almbachklamm und letzter Abend

Den letzten Tag begannen wir früh mit einer Wanderung in die Almbachklamm. Dort starteten wir um kurz vor 8:00h und so waren wir beinahe ungestört im sanften Morgenlicht. Die Klamm war wunderschön und viel länger und größer als die Wimbachklamm. Auch hier gab es wieder einige schöne Wasserfälle, und wenn man genau hinsah konnte man…

Ein regnerischer Tag

Am vorletzten Tag der Reise war viel Regen angekündigt und so beschlossen wir weniger Natur und Landschaft und stattdessen mehr Kultur in der Gegend zu erkunden. So fuhren wir erst zum Salzbergwerk, dann zur Dokumentation Obersalzberg und schließlich zum Windbeutelbaron. Das Besucherbergwerk war echt interessant. Man bekam typische Bergfahrerkleidung ausgeliehen und durfte/musste diese über seiner…

Wanderung zur Eiskapelle

Am nächsten Tag im Urlaub sollte es zur Eiskapelle gehen. Dazu startet man erstmal wieder am Hauptanlegeplatz des Königssees und fährt von dort aus mit den schönen Booten weiter bis zur Haltestelle St. Bartholomä. Von dort aus geht es erstmal recht ebenmäßig geradeaus durch ein kleines Waldstückchen, bis zu einer kleinen Flussüberquerung. Dort macht der…
