Before I get going on main purpose of this blog (I am still getting to grips with WordPress) here’s a quick thought on the Great Outdoors.
Nature. The abundance of space is one of the first things that strike you about Sweden. This time of year, Swedes seem obsessed with making the most of what remains of summer and there’s a lot going on in the woods; the Moose hunting season, a glut of wild blueberries and mushrooms plus all the fresh air you could wish for.
I came across naturkartan, a company which claims to be “Sweden’s best guide to the outdoors”. I don’t know if they’re the best, but their free Android/iPhone app is pretty good and lists many of the well-maintained hiking routes you find all over Sweden.
