    Thank you.

    Funny you should mention that...

    How does a Carpathian Camp in Poland sound to you next year?

    Nice report Gary,

    I am off to Jokkmokk as well in 10 days for a week holiday with the family.
    Looking forward to going back. Happy memories of our trip.

    Cheers,

    Lennart

    Hi Lennart. I was in much happier circumstances this time fortunately.

    Would have liked to have some time out camping like last time though.

    Oh yes, I forgot to include this in my report.

    One of the great things about visiting the Sámi Duodji foundation is getting access to their library.

    a book that caught my eye there this time was this.

    [​IMG]

    It's in Swedish but is absolutely packed with fascinating illustrations and photographs.

    Google translate makes a pretty good job of any translations I need.

    Anyway, it's out of print now so we had to check out some second hand bookshops in Stockholm.

    One shop, Alfa Antiquariat, actually did a book search and directed us to a rival bookseller that actually had it in stock. Top service that I thought deserved mentioning.

    Most of it I can work out from the pictures.

    The Google translate App on my iPad seems to work well enough for my needs elsewhere but thank you for the offer Janne.
