pierrewikberg This might be the epitome of a Swedish summer house. The house which all others are measured.
It was featured in the films about #astridlindgren's book about a rascal named Emil in 70's. Those films have made a lasting impression on me and likely millions of Swedes.
Idyllic to say the least.
It case you were wondering why the flag isn't the real Swedish one it's because it's illegal (or highly frowned upon, not sure) to use the flag unless it's a recognized holiday / flag day or a personal tribute to family / relative. Instead we use a small one for everyday use.
Which in a round about way makes you appreciate the real one when you see it (if you're into flags / nationalism). Kind of like how we use the word love very sparsely (or never) to family and friends. Love is a powerful word, not to be used in everyday chit chat and neither is the flag.

pierrewikberg Anna finding her inner child in one of Sweden's most idyllic and picturesque villages Bullerbyn.
It's famous from Astrid Lindgren's (likely Sweden's most loved author who's mostly famous for Pippi Longstocking internationally) books and movies named The Children of Noisy Village.
I loved these movies as a kid. It was surreal to stroll around here by ourselves.

pierrewikberg Driving through the Swedish Bible Belt and this guy pops up in front of me. What are the odds a car that clearly doesn't belong to the Devil roams around here?
Was Jesus' dad driving? Not Joseph, poor Joseph didn't even get to have sex with Jesus' mom and she still had a baby, virgin birth and all.. good luck trying to pull that of in court these days.

  •   kashmone @pierrewikberg is there really a "Bible Belt" in Sweden? How big is it, one town? 4d
  •   pierrewikberg It's center is in the city I'm staying at but the area is bigger than this one city. I don't have the stats but I've heard there are a couple of town in this area with over 25% conservative christians in council-esque positions. That is a really high number considering that political party only has about 4% of the votes on a national level. @kashmone @thelumpya2 4d

pierrewikberg A familiar view overlooking Sweden's 2nd largest lake.
It the middle of the lake there's a really nice island called #visingsö where the Swedish army planted over 300,000 oaks / 900 acres in the early 1800's to secure timber for the navy. Since Sweden don't participate in wars (we only make and sell weapons) the oaks were never used.
Like Edwin Starr said: War, what is it good for? Absolutely nothing.

pierrewikberg Found a unique house for sale in the south of Sweden (Ystad) and thanks to my architect friend @jakob_dala who knows the seller who's also an architect I got to roam around this awsm 4 story house for a while.
The first thing that greets you are these awsm floating stairwells.
It's affordable too, just not for me :(
Listed at 350,000 euros and it's 750 square meters / 8,000 square feet.
Designed by #tommycarlsson

pierrewikberg Got the opportunity to photograph a unique house in the south of Sweden today so I got an über sturdy tripod from Hama and a camera rig from #swedishcameleon
The Hama tripod was more useless than I'd ever imagine. Couldn't even get it level. Wtf?!

pierrewikberg I love this sauna project. Free for everyone. Recycled materials.
Every city should have one. I want one.
A+ for Gothenburg.

pierrewikberg Late lunch with an way above average view over lake #vättern and my favorite village #röttle. Even saw two hawks circling outside. Don't think I've ever seen that in Sweden. 4w
