Dalarna

We (hubby, brother and I) have had three fabulous days in Dalarna except one not so fun experience, the hotel stay at Orsa Stadshotell–I'm never ever going there again, and trust me you shouldn't either, but I won't talk more about that here in this blog post as that will change the post from being about our vacation to complaining about a hotel. Our planned two-day stay there turned into one night instead and we reserved rooms at Dalecarlia (in Tällberg) for our last night. 

Here are LOTS of pictures from our little trip…

The snow making machine for the polar bears, maybe they have more than one but this was the only one I noticed:

The world of Kamtjatka bears:

I don't think I want to meet one of these bears…

Baby bear…

I wonder how big this bear would have been if we were closer to it…

The world of (Siberian) Tigers:

Could these two possibly look more lazy?

On our way back down the "mountain" it started raining so Christoffer decided to take some shelter:

Can you see the wolf?? It started running just as I shot my picture:

Tällberg

Back in Tällberg again due to the "hotel issue"… After we had checked in at our new hotel we went sightseeing and found lots of beautiful buildings. I've seen many places in Tällberg already during previous trips there but always missed Holens Gammelgård:
