Into the Wild
Up in the very north of Sweden there are still places fairly untouched by man where you still can drink the water directly from the river and where the virtual world cannot reach you. A refuge for soul and mind.
Had a great week up there with two friends, spent the days fishing, talking, contemplating, eating, sleeping, solving all the world crisis and so on… Spotted three, for me, new bird species; blue-throat (blåhake), hawk owl (hökuggla) and nutcracker (nötkråka). Saw several mighty golden eagles, as well as sea eagles and ospreys.
We practised catch and release of the fish but sometimes the hook simply destroys the gills and there is no alternative but to kill the fish. Tastes good though…
