This huge building was an run down old barn a few years ago. The family reconstructed it into a lovely gite, or inn, for pilgrims. They are great cooks, have a lovely garden for us to sit in, and so hospitable.
One great thing the pilgrims do is bring opportunities for restoration of old farm buildings and new income for farm families. It is a privilege to be a part of it.
July 14 in Stockholm. We took the afternoon train to Vaxjo, Sweden. Stayed 3 nights to visit the Immigrant Museum and Glass Museum. Fascinating little town, too, with a lovely old town and lots of parks.
In all my travels I have seen my fair share of churches, and the cathedral in Vaxjo is a favorite, a mix of medieval and modern with lots of Swedish glass art.
We attended the Sunday service at the cathedral. The huge organ opened the service and was played sometimes with one of the smaller organs. During the service they played three different organs, a grand piano, a a violin and sang. It was heavenly. Being all in Swedish, made it musical, too.
Stopped n Lessebo to see the hand paper mill.
