"Just another VT..." yvgr's Profile

My travellings...

It's just a small corner of the World if I may say so. My world map is yet to be explored! I've been here since 2005! I use VT just for fun (make a catalog of my own trips & search for tips!) and I'm not a regular. I write tips here on VT about places & things I like & recommend. I also like to travel a lot in Sweden where I live. I have a special VT page on Wermland County which borders Norway in the West. While travelling abroad I prefer the countryside to the big city (...already live in one). I value nature, seaside and historical places.

If you wanna ask me something about a trip, photo or just anything I'll give a reply by VT-mail or a VT-comment on your site. Thanks for stopping by my page. Do have a nice day :)

Upcoming trips!

Here are some of my upcoming trips...:

2013.06.18: A REAL WARM SUMMER AT LAST! I'm enjoying good weather, 20-25 degrees, seaside, forest... sunny days and evenings with sunset at 10. Sweden is best when summer finally hits! We're leaving for windy Scotland in July. Take care.

2012.12.02: not much going on for the moment. Winter is here and I need to survive it.

Spring's approaching, but it's still cold and grey in Sweden :( Summer's travel plans still left undecided. 2012.04.20: Still amazingly cold :( I wish for a warm spring and 3 months of hot summer.

2012.05.20 - Finally, at least some good warm hot wheater now. Revisited U.K last week (cold...).

Contemplating Orkney islands in july...at the moment reading intensly about the islands :)

    Glad you liked my city (I actually live about 28 miles away in the suburbs, but my 2 oldest sons actually live in the city itself and my parents grew up there also). Never thought about the Chicago Cloudgate looking like a bun. We actually don't call it Cloudgate. It's known by the locals as "The Bean"
