The other day my family and I took Zack to see the the Swedish bunkers from World War II, which are located in the forest of Höljes, close to the Norweigan boarder. Even though Sweden remained neutral thoughout the war, we still had men placed by the border in case the Germans would decide to attack us from Norway. I don't know much about these bunkers, since there wasn't many signs put up, but basically it looked like safe places for the soldiers incase of an attack. They would also be able to fire their weapons from within the bunkers because of the vantage points in the ceiling that would provide an accurate shot, no matter the angle. The bunkers can be visited at Höljes Skans.

A small information sign to one of the bunks that said : "Safe room for 12 people".

Water well for the soldiers.
Towards the end of the field you could see this little house down from a steep hill, I'm guessing that it's been put up for tourists.
Stream that passed by the little house.
Our puppy, Ari, got to join us on out walk in the woods.
So did his brother Azzi.

There was several of these bunkers placed out along the area.
They were open so tourist can see how they look like from within.

Today Zack and I decided to pass time while Jake was at work by going on another walk in the beautiful nature for exercise and some good nature pictures! We drove to the church in Långav where we from there walked the road up towards the mountain and we followed that road until the end and walked straight up into the forest from there! You can hear the water so clear and the stream can't be missed. It's really beautiful walking by the stream and it sure is a good workout! Nothing can ever beat being out in the fresh air and the sound of the birds around. I love walking in nature like this, but depending on weather; make sure to bring your mosquito spray!
Reached a bridge for fourwheelers before we started to head back down!
Today we decided to go to Diner 45 to do a little precelebration off my little brother that turns 20 now in May. My birthday present to him was tickets to an event that's before his birthday so we decided to give him that over dinner at this beautiful resturant. The place is located on the side of Road E45 on the outside off the little town Sunne in Sweden. It's an American inspired 50's resturant, they serve a lot of delicious Burgers, steaks and desserts. I had the 45 Fabulous Cheese Burger and for dessert I chose the Mocca Milkshake, but the Cookie Dough Milkshake is still my favorite. Have to recommend this restaurant if you're ever traveling in Värmland.

Hard to do the interior justice, it truly has to be seen, it's all so perfect for the theme.
