Back to my roots...

Me, dad, Venessa and Minea went for a drive about an hour and a half north east to the birthplace and home of my great grandparents on my dad's side of the family. I have spent countless summer days here as a child and love knowing that my family has such deep roots in this tiny, iron age village.

The church in the background, looking for family gravestones

My great grandparents resting place

 I love old churches and the stories they tell, it was a real bummer the doors were locked

The home where my great grandparents lived, right next to the church. I wish houses were still inherited and stayed in the family. I would love to live here.

Minea was also very happy to be there. Can't wait to bring her back when she's older!
