Sweden with Julia Andreyanova. Day Six: Correux Nature Reserve
Our author Julia Andreyanova and photographer Igor Savkin went on a trip to southern Sweden and shared their impressions with us — and, of course, photos.
Today is the last day of travel.
The most fascinating place in Sweden is nature reserve Correux on the banks of the river Ronneby.
Previously, there was a large tannery here, and today there are almost 40 hectares of protected natural area.
The flora and fauna of the locals are nourished, cherished and studied.
And in order to maintain the reserve, arrange excursions.
Made a huge impression on me "Tasty and Healthy Walk" (Health & Gourmet Walk).
I am sure that there were quite a few such walks through the wild forest in yours, like in my life.
But guide guide Karina turned her into a fairy tale.
We made our way through the thickets of strawberries and mushroom glades, learned to understand the usefulness of wild herbs, learned many legends, sang songs of shepherds, gnawed pine flour crackers and meditated to the sound of green crowns.
Such a selfless love for the native nature is worth learning.
Especially Russian people, so lightly related to the forest wealth, available to us simply by birth.
I really hope that someday I will go on an excursion to the Russian forest, where they will instruct me on how to distinguish real white mushrooms from false ones, and stinging nettles from tender dioecious.

“I was born on June 21, the longest day of the year, on the same day as Prince William. I have two red diplomas.
I speak five languages - Russian, English, Italian, French and Ukrainian, like my grandmother. I managed to work in various companies, and as a result I chose what I get great pleasure from: throwing words, catching them and putting them into sentences.
I am lucky and I have a great intuition. I can cook, embroider, drive a car.
I love Chekhov’s stories more than anything else; I am lazy and tasty to eat.
I almost always manage to combine these three pleasures. ”

Sweden: Astrid Lindgren Park
Dreams come true! Today we visited the most amazing park of all, where I have ever been. Astrid Lindgrens Värld was created in 1981.
Southern Sweden: Fika
Today is completely woven out of pleasure. We visited a real «fika». Fika is a coffee break with buns.
Southern Sweden: Grenna
After the molecular cuisine you want simple pleasures. And after them we go to Grenna, the oldest wooden city in Sweden.
Southern Sweden: Småland
Julia Andreyanova: "Peppy Longdogs taught me how to bake pancakes, Carlson — with appetite, there are meatballs, Emil — not to put my head in the tureen. " See below.
South Sweden: Vaxjo
We came to Växjö. In addition to the old university, high-profile performances of local theaters and exhibitions of the museum of emigration, this city is famous for its title.
Macau: Day Two
The best Asian restaurant, the three-star Michelin-star Robuchon, is located under the roof of Macau’s brightest building, the Gran Lisboa Hotel, that is, Greater Lisbon.
Macau with Yulia Andreyanova. Third day
The chief of the restaurant, Antonio Coelho, is a real man-orchestra.
Forty years ago, an indigenous Portuguese went to military service in Macau and fell in love with this city. See below.
Macau: Day Four
Today we walked through the old quarters with our guide Joao.
He led us to the very heart of the city, where day and night is full of life.
Macau: the market
How can you come to the city and not visit the market! The largest markets are in the crowded Chinatowns, where the balconies of residential buildings are covered with bars.
