Since I've only been to Stockholm, it was wrong to assume winter might be like the one in "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" (remember the frozen look on Daniel Craig's face?) but my Swedish grandparents left a much colder part of the country. I do love Sweden, though I doubt the relatives still there own anything like this place!
Don't worry COTHers! When I become fabulously wealthy (let's say 5-10 years from now, to be safe) I'll buy it and offer sponsored positions for 2-3 promising young riders, with frequent visits from Rolf-Goran Bengtsson. All they'll have to do is occasionally coach my butt around a 3'6" course and keep their hands off Sven, my Swedish masseur!
Can't we borrow Sven while you're in Spain?
Holy crap, how does Darwin keep missing you? ~Lauruffian
