Adventure






We had a small adventure this weekend, when we drove up north to look at a summer house (and to sleep over).

Through fog and darkness we reached our destination late yesterday evening, an old missionary church. To our surprise there was no heat, or water turned on in the house. With the temperature a couple of degrees below zero (we had steam from our breaths indoors) we wasen´t sure at first, if it was such a good idea to sleep over. But since it was late, the fog + the kids really didin´t want to leave we decided to stay. By squeezing us all down in the same bed, and with several blankets, coverings and all our clothes on, jeans, sweathers, caps, scarfs - all of it, we manage to get some sleep, and to keep eachother warm :)

Summary: The first summer house dream we´ve looked at in real life was an awesome house, built in 1893. Airy spaces, rough details, "real" materials - just as I like it. But unfortunately it´s location felt a bit too far away for us.

Vilket fint hus och vackra bilder!
Gillar speciellt nr.2. Ser nästan ut som en prinsessa som vaknat. Låter som en riktigt kall och ruggig natt, även om det ser rätt behagligt ut på bilderna./ Karin

Fint gamalt hus! Det måste varit en spännande natt för er men det låte lite läskigt.

så vackra bilder. Ljuset är så krispigt, det kanske är för att det var så kallt. Fint i alla fall.

I love it! It looks like a place where you can really see the world in the intricacy of its simplicity. Your photos are beautiful.

Låter väldigt romantiskt ändå ;)
och ett kul äventyr för alla att minnas. De flesta familjer hade packat ihop och dragit till närmsta motell!
