I should have gone before Christmas, but a storm closed down all transportation in the southern part of Sweden. My flight was cancelled only a couple of hours before take-off. I was finally going to meet one of my blogger friends, Maria, living in Östersund up north, and I can’t say how disappointed I was. And Maria too. We had been planning this for about half a year, and we both laughed in the phone at the disaster …there was nothing else we could do…
I had to book another flight – not until February was it possible for us to meet. I was looking forward to a lot of winter, snow and fabulous walks on their big lake, Storsjön. The trip turned out to be … something quite different, but maybe not less wonderful!
This of course means that I like liver – when I cook it myself! I remember those ”rubber soles” we had to eat at school lunches…impossible for anything but shoes. But I always liked the smell and the creme sauce. My husband also loves liver, so when we’re alone I sometimes surprise him with it. And, not only for the smell. Our children are not that interested though…they were also served rubber soles at school.
So, it’s never too late – follow the frying instructions and enjoy!
Maria guidade mig till två underbara vattenfall som jag bara sett sommartid, som ung i slutet av 70-talet. De är bedövande vackra båda – Ristafallet och Tännforsen. Och vintertid är de något helt annat – fullständigt förtrollande. Därav rubrikens Bauer och Tolkien.
Maria guided me to two wonderful waterfalls, Ristafallet and Tännforsen – the two of which I had only seen in summertime when I was young. During winter they are maybe even more beautiful, enchanting and enigmatic. Like something from the famous Swedish illustrator John Bauer or J.R.R. Tolkien.

Vi började med Ristafallet, det mindre av de två. För utförliga fakta och fina sommarbilder, klicka på denna länk till Marias blogginlägg: Ristafallet
Fantastiskt vackert, men än mer fantastiskt skulle det bli vid Tännforsen. Tännforsen som ju är Sveriges största fors, fryser också till på vintern och bildar de mest spektakulära formationer.
Even more beautiful was Tännforsen, the largest waterfall in Sweden, when frozen into spectacular formations. The falls are iIlluminated in the night, but we visited in daylight. The path down to the water was very slippery and we had to use spikes to get there.

Avslutningsvis besökte vi ett litet iskapell vid Tännforsen. Mycket stämningsfullt och vackert – en plats att gifta sig på.
Finally we visited a chapel here, built in snow and ice. Very beautiful and popular to get married in.
