Cabin Fever the definition: A type of hysteria brought on by spending too much time indoors. Directly decended from long haul journeys where you are stuck in cramped conditions for too damn long.
Discover what Småland have to offer in the spring; the trolls of John Bauers’ paintings, long forgotten medieval trails, deep fir forests, rippling streams, fish filled fresh water lakes and forests filled with anemones. A sight for sore eyes.
