One of the things I learnt about Swedish people in the time that I lived there, is that they really know how to really enjoy the summertime. In a country that is cold and dark for much of the year, celebrating the sun is of the utmost importance. So come June, tens of thousands of Swedes abandon towns and cities and head to the coastal islands, inland lakes, vast boreal forests and glaciated mountains, for weeks of rest and relaxation. This was one such afternoon on the banks of Lake Mälaren.
