We had talked about doing a weekend trip for a while at work, and this past weekend we finally managed to make it happen. With me was Jovana Belic, Parul Tewatia, Andrei Kramer and Hazal Koptagel. Our destination was Öland, which last visited over 20 years ago. It had been a bit chilly in Stockholm, but going south we expected it to get warmer. That turned out not to be the case, and we passed through a snowy landscape on our way. When we switched trains in Linköping it snowed. Luckily it was a couple of plus degrees in Kalmar where we switched to a rental car and drove over to Öland.
Through Airbnb we had found a great old place built in 1840 to stay at. Our hosts Boel and Rune told us that normally their guests do not come quite this early in spring, but they had arranged for a set of electrical radiators to be placed in the house. The house was “kulturminnesmärkt” which meant they are not allowed to make modifications to it, so there was no running water in the house. Toilet and shower was in an adjacent building. The upper floor contained a museum with lots of old items, a great location for a small photoshoot.
Many thanks to Hazal, Andrei, Jovana and Parul for a fun weekend!
