Postcard from Fjällbacka

26 febr iPhone 059ps

My job takes me to places I never visited before. Today it was Fjällbacka 90 minutes drive north of Gothenburg. It´s a nice little gem and once the favourite place of the legendary Swedish movie star Ingrid Bergman.

I would not mind coming back in summer time and rent one of those kayaks they advertise about.

A number of paradise-like islands in the middle of the Indian Ocean… The Seychelles.

One of the highlights for me was the diving.

It might look like an easy motive but it´s not, I promise. It´s a different ballgame to take pictures under water. The creatures you meet accept your presence up to a certain point. If you get to close they are off in a hurry. No posing from this guy.

Caribbean dream

Isla Mujeres, Yucatan Mexiko. Take the ferry from the mainland to this quiet little island not far from Cancun. (That´s my daughter Kajsa standing at the palm tree admiring the sunset)

If you feel like more adventures you can go by motorboat further out in the Gulf of Mexico to Isla Contoy National Park, a rare unspoilt bird protection island .

Treasure island

It´s not uncommon to see persons with metal detectors in Cuba and actually they score quite often.  This is Playa del Este, east of Havana. I´m not sure the instrument indicated a hit on this spot..

This young girl

 was walking the pilgrim trail towards Santiago de Compostela in Spain. She is Peruvian and 87 years has passed since she was born.  We met her, half running and in good spirits with her daughter and grand-daughter some 110 kilometers before Santiago.  I´d like to be in that shape when I reach that age.
