May 7, 2012 "Sweden on the road" My first outing ...
« on: May 08, 2012, 10:21:38 am »
was from April 17 ... (my first official day on earth Viking) that looking at the "Sweden on the road" dl my site that says "Work in progress" ... I was out of tune a little bit! There were some beautiful days, sunny and warm and I would love to have my bike ..
 Since June, however, I have to wait to pick her up and this section is devoted to touring in Sweden and beyond, taking advantage of a half day today I had my first ride on the road in Viking land .. even if by car. 80 km of pure pleasure! I was prepared for this ride the bike .. but I could not resist! All roads immersed in the Swedish countryside. First stop about 15 miles from Malmo in a small pond where they are numerous species of birds to nest. Outside, a beautiful surprise. A magnificent church which dates back to 1200 surrounded by greenery. Immediately after un'antichissimo windmill on a hill with a breathtaking view. Then I came across a forest at Castle Torups, just wonderful. A few kilometers and once magnificent church of 1100! A real surprise .. the interior completely frescoed with paintings dating back to medieval times. A spectacle. Through vast yellow meadows are reached in Castle Hackeberga. Pure magic, its gardens and the huge lake that surrounds it. And finally, through the forest to the castle .. I returned home literally ecstatic! Pending a detailed report ... enjoy!

Catching up on all your stunning pics. Quite a contrast from Palermo :biggrin:
