“My favorite trips have not been the ones by 12-hour flight but rather our road trips to tiny cabins in the Swedish forest. And maybe it will be exotic for most people.
Sweden has so many scents. The salty cold air by the ocean, the scent of warm ripe fields, the thin “odourless” air in the mountains, the scent of a lake in a marshland… but my all time favorite scent is the one of a Swedish fir forest.
Ever since I was little I use to walk out in to the forest. It cleared my mind and released my soul. Even now when I feel troubled I walk out in the woods and the scent releases me. I cry in the arms of what comforts me the most. So let me try to describe you this indescribable scent.
