Jonkopping is where my Aunty and Cousins were originally based, a lovely city near Sweden’s second largest lake. Only one of my Cousin, her husband and her dog still live there and we decided to take the whole family to visit them. As we travelled there by car the scenery bought back memories of my first trip there when I was 11 years old. I remember lots of forest and plenty of green space to cycle. When we got there it had changed so much that I almost didn’t recognise it. There was a lot more roads, building and new apartments. Children still swin in the lovely lake, but I could not find the small shop where I bought my straw hat. Well it has been 20 years.
Tarta – a Swedish Savory cake in layers of prawn, chicken, vegetable and salad cream. Made by my cousin
