On Christmas Day we went to the sea…

We could cover the windows with snow spray.
If we do that, we don’t have to look at the horrible weather.
We were seated at a wonderful Christmas table though the view towards the sea was blurred.
The rocky coastline faded away in a rough sea and heavy rain.
However, we quickly forgot the weather in the cheerful company with anecdotes, singing and delicious food.
On Christmas Day the weather was excellent, the rain had stopped 🙂

To our dear hosts:
May you live as long as you want,
And never want as long as you live.

Tell me about Sweden

A dear friend of mine asked me about Sweden. What is there to say? What is special about the country?
I like their high moral. The Swedish friends I have might say that the moral is hypocrisy but I like many of their views.
Sweden is the third-largest country in the European Union by area, with a total population of over 9.8 million inhabitants.
Sweden has a low population density of 21 inhabitants per square kilometre, with the highest concentration in the southern half of the country. Approximately 85% of the population lives in urban areas.
Southern Sweden is predominantly agricultural, while the north is heavily forested.

We stayed for Christmas Eve in Sweden this year and had a very cosy Christmas. As usual we went for beautiful walks in the countryside and along the coast.

Sweden has great nature. There are many nature reserves and national parks. Furthermore is the establishment of Sweden’s first national tourist bicycle route – a 370-km-long bicycle route in a unique coastal setting. The route runs all the way through Halland, connecting Helsingborg in the south and Gothenburg in the North.

En af mine kære venner spurgte mig om Sverige. Hvad er der at sige? Det særlige ved landet?
Jeg kan godt lide deres høje moral. De svenske venner, jeg har, vil måske sige, at deres moralbegreber er noget hykleri, men jeg kan godt lide mange af deres synspunkter.

Sverige det tredje største land i EU efter størrelse, med en samlet befolkning på over 9,8 mio indbyggere.
Sverige har en lav befolkningstæthed, med den højeste koncentration i den sydlige halvdel af landet. Ca. 85% af befolkningen bor i byområder.
Sydsverige er overvejende landbrug, mens den nordlige del er stærkt repræsenteret af skov.

Vi holdt juleaften i Sverige i år, og havde en meget hyggelig jul. Som sædvanlig og med stor glæde gik vi enestående ture i Haverdal Naturreservat.

Sverige har stor natur. Der er mange naturreservater og nationalparker. Desuden er etableringen af Sveriges første nationale turist cykelrute en realitet – en 370 km lang cykelrute i et unikt kystnære omgivelser. Ruten løber hele vejen gennem Halland, der forbinder Helsingborg i syd og Göteborg i nord.
