I'm going to Sweden in a few weeks. Until a couple of days ago I was too busy to do any research. Now that I've started I'm more excited than ever! The first place I went to get inspired to start my list of "Must Sees" was the Design Sponge city guide for Stockholm. Since I found the guides about four years ago I've checked them before all my trips. They have led me to some great places I never would have found otherwise (like a bakery in Hawaii with the best cream puffs on the planet, and a great vintage store in Vegas that was way off the beaten track). I love these guides so much I wrote one for the area I live in (the Comox Valley), and updated their Vegas guide after the last time I was there. If not for the original Vegas guide I probably wouldn't have known I could get into the Neon Boneyard (a gravel yard full of the old signs), which, other than the natural wonders I got to see like Death Valley and the Valley of Fire, was definitely the highlight of my trip. Here are some shots I took in the Boneyard. I can't wait to see some of these images blown up to poster size!
I'm house sitting for people who say they bought the house because of the garden. Can you see why I believe them?
