A Summer Excursion To Oland In Sweden
August 29, 2021 1:12 PM

Earlier this summer I went on a two day summer excursion to Oland here in Sweden. With me was my sister and her then seven week old baby boy, Benjamin. So yes, I have become a proud first time auntie this year! Such a wonderful feeling! And what a wonderful summer excursion we had, with perfect summer weather! :p

It was Benjamin's first taste of travel life with my sister and I. And judging from Benjamin's reactions to being on the road, he will share his mum's and auntie's interest of traveling. Because he loved riding in the car, seeing new surroundings and visiting new places. So this excursion to Oland may have been Benjamin's first trip with us, but I am sure it will certainly not be the last. I look forward to many more!

Below are some photos from A Summer Excursion To Oland In Sweden earlier this summer.

On our way to Oland via the 6 kilometre-long Oland bridge that connects Sweden's second largest island - Oland, to the main land. Oland is located about 111 kilometres from where I live in Sweden, so not that far away.

Our first stop was at the northern part of the island, Trollskogen Nature Reserve.

If you translate Trollskogen to English it means Troll Forest. Such a cute name, lol. We did not see any trolls though. :p

After our visit to Trollskogen we headed off to our accommodation for the night, Guntorps Herrgard. Located in Borgholm in Oland. An accommodation I found through Booking.com.

We stayed in this spacious room with two single beds and a sofa bed. It also had a balcony and a big bathroom. The only complaint I had was that, because it was such a hot summer day, the room was very hot and there was no air condition or fan. Other than that the room had all we needed for our visit. Well, a coffee maker would had made the stay even better. :p

In the morning we had breakfast, which was included in the price, at this lovely porch overlooking the entrance to the main building at Guntorps Herrgard.
