Torup

Every time I go to visit my family in Sweden there is so much I have to fit into a very short amount of time with lots of things to do and places to see and if you can combine that with a nice cup of coffee and a cake, then even better. When I was over last week for my dad's birthday we thought we would brave the bleak weather and go for a walk and a coffee at Torup, which is a medieval castle in the South of Sweden nearby to where my family lives, surrounded on three sides by a lake and it has a big beautiful park with old historical and traditional buildings and roaming deer. It's a lovely place to visit especially in the summer and I wanted to show you some photos that I took on the day.
As you can tell from the pictures Spring is nowhere near as far come in my home county of Scania in Sweden as it is in the UK, but what's worse is that it was about 10 Celsius colder than what I'm used to in the UK, so I can tell you that it was a very quick walk followed by a nice looooong stop for hot chocolate. I really hope you enjoyed the photos and tomorrow I have some favourites in store for you. Have a wonderful day! Xx
