In the Shade

In the Shade

We have a heat wave in Sweden. It’s + 30 degrees Celsius (86 Fahrenheit) and more, right now, and that people is what I call a real summer! I’ve been enjoying the shade of the apple tree, camping out on a blanket with my gear. Can’t be bothered to think when I don’t have to. […]
