If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need

Cheerful weather at Skamlingsbanken when I was there. But at least they had cows. I like cows. When I was a child, cows in the fields were a normal sight. Nowadays cows are trapped inside in the barn most of their lives. It's sad that we exploit animals the way we do in our society.



Skamlingsbanken is a hill. With a peak rising to 113 metres (371 ft) above sea level, it is the highest point in South Jutland.
The view is spectacular - when the sun's shining. When we were there, it was grey and cloudy; the rain was pouring down ....
When crossing the Little Belt Strait, we chose to use the old bridge from 1935. I counted and realised that I was crossing that bridge for the first time in 25 years.



Anyway .... this post ended up being about everything else but gardening and books. .....

Dreams are necessary to life

So sorry for the missing updates the past weeks. - I had too much to write about, but was unable to write it down.
Home after 3 weeks. Picked up my little Prince Tiger today at Emily's. Poor little thing's been sick, which might explain why he's lost weight. Anyway, Emily and Fredrik's been taking very good care of him. His exhausted after the trip, but happy to be home again. - Btw - so am I. - East, West, home's best or something like that :P
Not looking forward to going back to work though, so let me pretend that work is far, far away xD
On our way home (which is a 12 hours journey), the weather was awesome, and when passing by Linköping, we decided to make a stop at Berg's Locks along the Göta Canal, which is such an interesting experience. It gave me lots of opportunity to see the locks in function due to the traffic on the canal. - And there were plenty of objects for the camera to catch ....

It was hot 




 Linköping is hosting an Airforce museum

Passing Stockholm .....

Passing by the Chinese Wall and the Forbidden City along the highway

My dream is a boat trip at the canal .... Birthday gift perhaps???
