Glass manufacturing district of Sweden July 2007

After our journey to the Northcape we felt a little bit restless back home and booked a Hostel in Orrefors, packed our bags again and went for a two day trip to the Glass district of Sweden in Småland where Orrefors and Kosta-Boda have their factories. We also had time to visit Öland, the second largest island in Sweden and cross the long bridge over to the Island. We also managed to squeeze in an Elkpark. Here are our pictures.
