Spent a couple of days in Sweden. A forest about 100km West of Stockholm. Went picking wild mushrooms in the forest. Looked out for wild boar that might charge at you. Did very hot sauna fired by chopped wood. Showered outside in water from a natural well. Cooked mushrooms. Ate them (very tasty!) Cooked Indian-style feast on wood-burning stove. Got bitten by mosquitos. Gazed at the Milky Way in the pitch black sky. Heard deer and moose barking in the dead of night.
But I missed my bus – sorely.
It’s quite an experience for a city boy to live the simple life in the middle of a Swedish forest. But I kind of enjoyed it.
