Autumn in Gothenburg

For many the autumn is a season of melancholy. Some sort of confirmation that decay is the fate of all mankind, while we gaze upon the colorful trees as the last vestiges of beauty.

While that may ring true, I prefer to see it as the deep breath before the plunge. A few months later the winter will be gone and nature will return to blossom. Embrace change and enjoy the seasonal variations in sights, sounds and smells.

“What is dead may never die”, as they say in the Iron Islands.

    Agree! Även om vintern är kall och mörk så är det fantastiskt att ha 4 så distinkt olika säsonger.
    Jag föredrar dock att åka iväg någon gång under vintern för en paus från kylan och fylla på med D-vitamin :)

Roaming in Valletta

On the Trans-Siberian

Wazzup in Vaduz

"Vaduz Castle is overlooking the town from a hill, a short walk from the center. It’s really a postcard view with the alps in the background, which I’m sure the prince enjoys as he sips his morning coffee while towering above his loyal subjects."
