Living in Ystad, Sweden

I have had wonderful parties with  family and Swedish friends at the garden of this house in beautiful Ystad. Ystad is the southernmost port of Sweden, and there is also a nice boat club, where I have kept a smaller sailing boat  to sport during a few weeks in the summer (my favourite sailing boat – Miranda –  is in Rundvik, in Northern Sweden). Ystad is also known for being a center for painters, artworks and craftsmanship, as in general it is all the Österlen region, which begin in Ystad towards Simrishamn. This is the house where I have my painting atelier and the mechanical facilities (I will post some interior pictures later on during the Spring). This Spring I also intend to restore the white Volvo Amazon (vintage 1965) shown in one of the pictures below; more pictures of my restored Amazons here. The house is nice, ample and gifted with some veritable apple, plums, and cherry tress. But the main problem is that I do not spend enough time in Sweden, and when I am over there in the summer I always try to be in Rundvik as much as I can, to enjoy the sailing season there. Among other nice reasons, from Rundvik is even possible to sail to Finland.
