Hätteboda Sunset, Sweden

Beautiful sunset over our campsite at Hätteboda Wilderness Campground in the Småland region of southern Sweden. For those of you who are looking for a more remote and wilderness-style camping experience in Sweden, this is the place to be! Mostly tent campers, no RVs allowed. Very primitive camping by european standards. Complete with a wood-oven powered sauna on the lake!

It is also the host venue for the prestigious Match Cup Sweden sailing event,  which is part of the World Match Racing Tour.  This event draws the world’s best sailing teams to Marstrand in a gladiatorial battle of nerve and skill on the water.

Details of the east facing Nativity Facade, Sagrada Familia Basilica, Barcelona, Spain

Constructed between 1894 and 1930, the Nativity façade was the first façade to be completed. Dedicated to the birth of Jesus, it is decorated with scenes reminiscent of elements of life. Characteristic of Gaudí’s naturalistic style, the sculptures are ornately arranged and decorated with scenes and images from nature, each a symbol in their own manner.
