In february 2008 I moved from Germanys capital Berlin to the countryside on a swedish island called Öland. Öland is known for its rough beauty, white sandy beaches and the great diversity of birds and wild orchids. And yes, there are mooses in the wide dark forrests too.
It is a pleasure to live at a place where you know everybody by name and a small talk at the grocery store is often the highlight of the day. I need the calmness and serenity of this unspectacular living as a balance to all the irritations and stimulations of our world.
