West Coast: Gothenburg and Marstrand / by Jennifer Leahy

When Mike answered my call to the Swedish Number, I'd had no idea he was actually a fellow New Englander until he shared the story of how he and his wife, Anette, met (in Dorchester, MA), moved to San Francisco to work at the Fort Mason hostel, and then settled in Sweden, where she was from, raising their family outside Gothenburg, in the small town of Kullavik. 

Last week, they generously invited me to stay at their home and showed me around Kullavik (where Anette rides horses and Mike kayaks), Gothenburg, and Marstrand, including the island fort of Carlstens Fästning. Lots more stories will follow, but for now, a few images from those two days.
