The ones before me

I’ve always had a love for history. And perhaps it’s no surprise. I grow up surrounded by historical places and all the sagas about the people. It’s been the center for battles between two important families for hundred of years, long before we were even called ” Sweden ” and Swedish had a completely different sound to it. But it has also been a religious  place and one of Sweden’s most important and oldest monastery can be found here. Or more like the rest of it. The landscape is amazing. You got the mountain, Omberg- named after Queen Omma. There’s the lake, Vättern, with its deep, cold water but yet beautiful and peacefulness.
