On my way back to Kungälv from Berlin, I made two stops in southern Sweden – first in Malmö, for the Malmö Festival. This free week-long art & music festival takes place every year in Sweden’s 3rd largest city, drawing performers and artists from all over the world.
Each city square was furnished with at least one stage offering live performances of every conceivable genre of music. After enjoying some local musicians, I headed for the largest stage of all to see one of my favorite American artists, Iron & Wine.
After 2 nights in Malmö I hopped a bus to Höganäs, a small coastal town on Sweden’s southwest shore. There I spent a weekend at the beautiful home of couchsurfing friend Jonn (who I hosted in Portland a few weeks before my trip).
My visit culminated with photography & hijinks at a beachside playground…
Coming next: Homeward bound!
