Mikael’s abandoned village

17 Jul 2014 | Risaträsk, Sweden


It turns out that I will have to make my way back home earlier than planned, but I just can't leave without having a look at Mikael's new purchase: the abandoned village of Risaträsk.

So I hitchhike to that village, and make it all the way -even if it takes a while for me and the driver to find the road across the forest that leads to the village-, just to find out that Mikael doesn't live there yet, he still lives in Bastuträsk some 25km away.

Nevertheless, we spend some time there, I also discover his workplace, a little community farm which is nice, and we end up spending the weekend with his friend Tomas in Skellefteå for the Trästock festival where I manage to get in for free, all good!
