April gave me a great couple short trips; I went back to my childhood roots and visit Höör, where I grow up. I moved from Höör to Gothenburg after school in 1963 and I haven’t been back since 1986.
Had a meeting with Höör’s museum to see my grandpa’s wooden figures that they have a small collection of.
A day trip to Skanör and Flasterbo, the most southeast point of Sweden, with miles of white fine sandy beaches.
Very picturesque, with big massive villas along the shoreline – we could probably call it Sweden’s Hamptons. We had beautiful sunshine on our backs and in our paper plate with freshly pan fried herring. A short walk on beach.
Enjoyed Easter lunch at beautiful Örenäs castle by the sea only 15 min drive from Landskrona – on stunning grounds and with excellent food. When I compliment the food, our waitress answered; Thank so much, we so are luck because we have loads of love in the kitchen. What a lovely answer – I LOVE IT!
All restaurants should have love in the kitchen.
Örenäst was completed in 1918 and is considered Sweden’s youngest castle. The castle, which is located approximately 60 meters above sea level, is located less than 500 meters from the coast, today it is owned by the Swedish Workers Union, LO!
And I spent a great weekend with my friends, Inger and Leif, in beautiful Simrishman. They have move to their caravan for the summer, so I had their nice apartment to myself.
I go back to Simrishamn every 6th week, but it’s not the same as when mum was alive. Inger was my mum’s support during my years abroad and for mum was she a daughter, and for me Inger is like a sister.
So now is only to see what May will bring on – of course the Istanbul trip in the end of the month is what is going to be the highlight.
