The Folly visits Sweden…

Before the hysteria of Christmas really hits, I thought it would be a good idea to have a little weekend away with friends in the heart of the Swedish forest. I was right. Down in the depths of the small southern town of Kornhult, everything is quiet and calm and beautiful. Three days of walks in the forest, camp fires and board games left us all relaxed and ready for Christmas!

Just look at how stunning it is…
