I went to Skåne and Österlen (Wallander country and the south east part of Sweden)a month ago. A beautiful and tranquil part of the world (and Sweden). We were so lucky with the weather and that a lot of the places we wanted to visit was open at this early part of the season. We started with lunch in Hammenhög in a not too Swedish place. "En bit av Medelhavet", i.e. "A piece of the Mediterranian". A lovely shop with Greek and Spanish pottery and a lovely garden were the Greek waiter/owner? Vassilis served fresh and authentic Greek salads. A great start of our stay!

We had rented some excellent "houses" in Vik by the sea and this historic place is called "The Reverends Bathtub" (Prostens badkar). We had a lovely walk along the seaside if not a bit rocky at places.

Not far from Vik is the bigger summer town of Simrishamn. With a lovely seafront with restaurants and shops and a pieceful park (fountain pictured). Have a stroll and a nice meal! Popular on Saturday mornings with a car boot sale and flea market!

Outside Vik towards Kivik and Södra Mellby we found this charming organic café and bakery, "Dalängarna". Take a break and have a nice coffee and homemade cakes and buy some freshly baked stone owen loafs. More from Österlen tomorrow!
