A Weekend in the Swedish Countryside

I always bring you along through photos when I travel. Except for when I travel to Sweden. I'm not entirely sure why but I'm guessing it's because I'm so used to my surroundings over here that I find them utterly boring and have a hard time understanding why anyone else would be interested in seeing photos of them. But this time I thought I'd give it a shot, since I don't really think I'm being fair. Because it is beautiful up here.

During a weekend before Christmas my sister and I traveled further up north, about 1,5 hours from Stockholm to visit my dad in Norberg and the Swedish countryside. After working my ass off without a break it was really nice to get away from the computer and phone to just relax and spend some time with my loved ones. Cosy walks outside, several cups of tea, playing with the neighbours' dogs and eating around one million sweets made me feel like I finally got a chance to wind down. A thing I certainly don't mind about visiting this place is that I can overindulge in all the yummy Swedish sweets I've been missing while away. Sure, the Parisian pastries are some of the best in the world but sometimes you miss those tasty treats from home. Lussekatt, chokladboll, mandelring, mazarin and chokladbiskvi are all pastries you have to try if you ever find yourself in Sweden. And there's no better place to try them all than here in Norberg (where you can even spend the night if you want to make a little trip out of it).
