skåne roadtrip

Last weekend, my flatmate Josse offered to drive me around her home region of Skåne, the southernmost part of Sweden. Yes, roadtrip! (In a Volvo, of course).

Kasia and Josse walk along cliffs high above the deep blue Baltic Sea, near Kåserberga, in the Skåne region Sweden. (2007). Skåne is sometimes anglicized Scania, the word upon which Scandinavia is based. By deduction: Skåne is the heart of Scandinavia.

Ales Stenar (Ale's Stones), near Kåseberga. (2007). Sweden's version of Stonehenge, this structure was built by Vikings during the Iron Age, approximately 1,500 years ago.

Apples abound in Kivik, Sweden's apple town. (2007).

Kivik Harbor. (2007).

Boats at Kivik Harbor. (2007).

  2. m and Katie ... thanks! Taking pictures is a lot more fun than writing papers for class.
