Away is Good but Home is Best

[literal translation from the original Swedish proverb: Borta bra men hemma bäst. English variations on the same theme: East or West Home is Best and the ever so boring There is no place like home!]

Two weeks of holiday can take its toll on a person! -.~ It’s nice to be home especially when one was lucky enough to escape a week of shitty weather. Going abroad for vacation in the summer in Sweden is always a bit of a gamble since the summer is short as and almost completely rains away as “so famously” (not really) sung by Tomas Ledin. One might miss out on the one week of actual good weather! The safest bet is to go abroad in the winter, but ain’t nobody got time fo’ that!

[yes, we swedes love sing-along gatherings in the summer–rain or shine, we can’t afford to be picky– just like below. You can even have a go yourself!]
