This post is kind of a throwback to my photo walk. Also it is kind of a recap of yesterday’s Swedish blog where I wrote about how fortunate I feel to be living so close to nature and countryside, even though I live in a big city. I guess one can call this a throwback entry even to my tribute to Elfvik. 🙂 Hey, why not call this a throw back post to make it simple? Anyway, to the point. As I said in my Elfvik tribute, the place carries a lot of childhood memories. One of the favourite things about this place is that there is a stable here with large and vast greenyards for the horses which you pass when you drive here.

In today’s English Tuesday I want to talk about a place that means a lot to me. It is called Elfvik and carries a lot of fond childhood memories in connection with my grandparents.
