Sweden

sunny 18 °C

So I decided to drop in on Central/Southern Sweden. I came in at Dala Airport. I stayed at Buskakers Gastgivargard, in Storatuna. Great beds. The temperature was in the high 50's. It was a little cold. Sweden is in Northern Europe in between Norway and Finland. I took a lot of interest in Norse Paganism, which is the main religion in Sweden.

One place you might want to visit is the Torsang Church Dalarna Sweden. I was told that it was the oldest church in Dalarna. It looks like a building from the 13th Century, it has a crucifix from the 15th century. Their bells are several hundred years old and the belfry is from the 16th century.

It was really cool to see The Tjolöholm Castle is a country house in Halland Sweden. It started being built in 1898 and was finished in 1904. It showed up in the movie Melancholia (2011 film). It was built to hold its own little society. The Castle held an ideal society, with the addition of a small village where estate workers lived. It had its own library, school, and meeting place. Now some of the rooms have been restored and are available for rent.
