On the road

A mother & daughters mini weekend road-trip. Reconnecting with places very familiar, yet, at the same time, unexplored. Things have changed, people have left us, but we want to stay attached to this beautiful part of the world called Hälsingland.

I swam in the same waters where my grandfather used to enjoy summer in a different century already. I did not know that Vallvik was such a beautiful spot.

A fairly random choice that added value to the whole experience….

 Oh, we want to visit again soon for more of everything!
