In december 2015 we went to Tallinn to visit an UNESCO World Heritage Site – the medieval town of Tallinn in Estonia. We went around on the medieval streets on Toompea and looked at the old buildings and visited the Christmas market.
When I arrived to Japan in the beginning of November 2013 to visit my son that lived there at the time the captain told us that Mount Fuji could be seen in the morning light from the plane I managed to snap a few quick shots before I had to put the camera down as we were coming in for landing at Nagoya.
Today is midsummer in Sweden and I have read that on midsummer solstice on the 21st of June you are allowed inside the stonecircle at Stonehenge so the postcard this week comes from Stonehenge which is an eternal mystery to people on earth. Why was it built and by whom? What purpose was it meant to serve? More than a million people from all around the world visit Stonehenge every year enchanted by the mystery of the stones. The picture is taken on easter 2017.
A treasured memory from one of my journeys to visit my son whom lived in Japan at the time. The pictures is taken close to the temple Tenryū-ji in Kyoto and has been published on one of my other blogs. Tenryū-ji is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
On Sveaborg – a sea fortress whose construction started in 1748 by Augustin Ehrensvärd who was a Swedish military officer and an architect. Finland was a part of Sweden until 1809 when Finland was occupied by Russia. Sveaborg means “fortress of Svea”. The name “Svea” is female and a symbol for Sweden. Finland became a sovereign state in 1917 and the fortress was renamed Suomenlinna – “castle of Finland”. Sveaborg – Suomenlinna is a UNESCO world Heritage site. More about Sveaborg – Suomenlinna at wikipedia.
The picture is taken in december 2015 and originally published on Weekly Weather.
