Sweden’s beaches round 2

leave a comment »

Taking the risk of turning into a mommy blogger (see last, rather similar post)- my next stop in Åhus, southern Sweden was just as beachy as the islands off the east coast.

Collecting miles

I know, I just talked about how well-trained and nice the Norrona sales guy was (here). When I walked out of their shop in Stockholm, I actually liked the brand about 68% more than before. My closet is full of blacks, whites, browns, jeans and greys. At the sight of their colors I used to reach for my sunglasses.

I selected a couple to stimulate brain activity:

Beer production in Germany 1990 (million hectoliter)                                                          120,2
