Brahehus, Gränna

I took this photo from the car window as we were driving along the E4 highway from Gränna. What looks like a castle on top of the mountain was the mansion of count Per Brahe the Younger, who lived here in the 1600s and founded the town of Gränna.

I took this shot while the car was running down the highway! It was really lucky. On the other hand, I took a lot of (not-so-good, sometimes obscured view) shots before I was able to get a view of this one.

Because of the rainy weather, we only spent one afternoon in Gränna. We did camp somewhere the night before though (near a lake about 50 km off Gränna), and then spent the remainder of the rainy weekend at Marcus' godparents place.

More pictures and the story to come!

Martin: Of course! How are you guys? Saw your pics in HK. Galing! Congrats!

Esther: Yeah, it's a lot of vacation for minimal money (hanging with Marcus' relatives, camping, borrowing a car for this car trip). Makes one feel rich despite the lack-of-income situation (which will hopefully solve itself after the employers are done with their vacations too)! :-) Glad you liked the picture! We actually climbed the mountain, but on its southern side away from Brahehus. The view there wasn't bad either though!
