Not Far To Go, Anywhere In Hjo


Square, beach walk, park, tourist office… Everything seemed to be just a short walk away in Hjo.

Ice cream café by the river



The sign on the little wooden cottage says ”soap factory”. Checking things up on the internet now, I see that in spite of the “olde” look, this seems to be a contemporary local business (in an old building) – producing and selling their own ecological soap, and related products.


The square


Hjo Church (see separate post from last Sunday)


Randomly wandering the streets on our way back to the hotel, we happened to also come across an enclosed “mystery” estate. We never quite got a grip of whether it was public or private. Either way – a charming environment for whoever it may be who is so lucky as to live there.

Saying goodbye to Hjo, and driving on south…

We made five more stops on that last day of our trip, on our way back home. Each of those stops involved a church; and each one interesting in its own right. (I’m pretty sure I’ve never visited so many churches on one and the same Sunday before!) … I’m thinking of saving those for “Inspired Sundays” to come (one church  per weekend); and get back to posting some other things in between.

This weekend, I’m linking to:

Shadow Shot Sunday 2 

Shadow Shot Sunday 2


  1. I could live here, it would be like a fairyland. I love everything about it...the square, little bridge, fountain. How far is this from Boras?

  2. A couple of hours by car without stops, I suppose. We were in no hurry though, and made several stops to look at things (and for food).

  3. What a beautiful trip you've taken. I'm very impressed with how clean and tidy Sweden is.

    1. It's very touristy views that I've been presenting, Janet! and to be honest, I do think every town makes a special effort when it comes to those areas.

  4. Absolutely beautiful place to visit.
    Thank you for taking us with you!
    Have a Happy Weekend!!
    Peace :)

  5. Nice little trip you shared with us

  6. Lovely place to walk! Thanks for joining the fun at Shadow Shot Sunday!

  7. That's interesting. I came back to look at this after reading today's post and it seemed quite familiar to me: particularly the last photo. So why, assuming I read it, did I not comment? Another of life's imponderables.

  8. Reading through surrounding (datewise) posts I realised that they were from the time when I was in hospital having surgery. I must have gone back at a later date and read posts but not commented on them individually.

    1. Mystery solved, then ;) Myself, I sometimes read blogs via Feedly on my phone, and as I find it difficult to comment via the phone, I often think I'll go back later on the computer to comment on this or that... but forget, or don't find the time... So I sometimes have that feeling too of having read and even commented on something (because I did so in my head!), but then can't find any proof of it... :)


Communication is what makes blogging fun :)
