Beautiful Värmland

During our first week of vacation we travelled to a province called Värmland. It’s a three hour car drive from Stockholm. We went there in order to 1) visit old friends from Colorado (they are visiting the area for the summer) and 2) stay at one of the best spa hotels in Sweden. We had a fantastic trip and here are some highlights from the roadtrip!

In the middle of nowhere an 1950’s styled American diner is located, called Diner 45. It’s amazing but it is actually required to reserve a table in advance because the restaurant is so popular!

    Looks lovely! And if the name is anything like it sounds, then it is a nice warm place for you and your arthritis to be! 😀
