Images from my birth town Kalmar
I am just back from a relaxing Easter break in Kalmar, my beautiful birth town in South East of Sweden. Below are some images from walks around Stensö, Svinö, Djurängsskogen and Skällby (the latter a recreational area with greenery, animals and a café). One day it was even possible to do some sunbathing in my dad´s garden. Not particular the norm for this time of the year but for sure a pleasant surprise.
Kalmar is a very popular holiday destination for nature lovers. Many of them coming from Germany and the Netherlands. And for people seeking to cross the bridge over to the island Öland (where in fact the king & queen of Sweden has their summer palace). Kalmar has a rich history and probably the most famous landmark is the old castle on above picture.
Before I caught my train back me and my father made a little detour and discovered some lovely cherry blossoms. And I also managed to capture some typical small colorful Kalmar houses, found downtown. There are so many interesting things to discover in Kalmar. I never used to see them when I lived there, but now I do 🙂
