I escaped to Ystad in Sweden and used the quarantine time for a lot of deep conversations, good music, long walks in nature, a swim in the sea - the first one this year - and loads of Prosecco.
I also shot this little photo series for The Wasted Hour, and finally rekindled my love for photography.
Ystad (Swedish pronunciation: [ˈy̌ːsta(d)] is a town and the seat of Ystad Municipality in Skåne County, Sweden. Ystad had 18,350 inhabitants in 2010. The settlement dates back to the 11th century and has become a busy ferryport, local administrative centre and tourist attraction.
The detective series Wallander, created by Henning Mankell, is set primarily in Ystad.
In 1285, the town's name was written Ystath. Its original meaning is not fully understood, but the "y" is probably related to an old word for the yew tree, while -stad is town, or place. In Danish times, before 1658, the spelling was Ysted.
Thank you Julia, for being part of The Wasted Hour
