Seeing nature come alive again each year is a magnificent thing to behold. This year it is so close since we get to walk straight into the …

Rösjöns nature reserve

On Saturday we hiked in Rösjöns nature reserve. We’ve been there before during the summer to swim in the lake but never done a hike. We did the 5,5km walk around the lake which was really nice even though it was a super grey day. It took about 1,5 hrs which is a perfect length …
