... daily or not ... these are the latest 22 diary entries in my Journal ...
This is a little Museum in the midle of nowhere in Västmanaland a few kilometers outside SalaYou will not find it in the tourist guides, you won't find it on a google search about museums.
The main atraction is old tractors. It is after all farm country there.
But after I looked at all the tractors from the 30s to the 80s
and after I took enough pictures with this unlikely subject for me, I though ok now it is time to go.
There was one more room they said. Oh ok, I though, kind of uninterested.
When I entered that part of the museum I blinked a few times too make sure I saw what I saw!
This was such a surprise!
Skansen has nothing on this.
(Well Skansen has property and money but oh well.)
It is called Tractor and Nostalgia Museum for a reason.
The moment you enter that place you are just filled with nostalgia.
It is almost overwhelming.
Especially for someone who really loves vintage stores, clothes, cars, hair doos, and anything that for a little while can make you travel in time in your mind.
Oh and aparently Perer Stormare was here in November 2015 shooting ...
eeehhh something ... who cares :p
This place is like a time travel portal.
You get lost in your head for a while!
Small stores perfectly decorated in a mix of 3 decades. 30s 40s 50s
There might be a few things from the 70s and 80s I am not sure,
but the 40s and 50s heavily dominate the whole place.
Everything in there is authentic.
A lot of things, like old store merchandise and store signs, are taken from the little town close to the museum.
This was my favorite shop. The Bakery.
I just loved it!
All the muffins and cakes are knitted. How adorable is that! :)
I went there twice that day in order to take everything in.
Plus, in the morning I went there by chance
and in the evening I went there because the farmers had their annual "Tractor Cruise"!
Yes, that's a thing.
They get on their old tractors and they cruise around the village and the small town ending outside the Tractor and Nostalgia Museum for a little picnic!
I had a smile stuck on my face the whole day that day!
This is all so exotic to Me who have spend most of My life in the city.
Damn I love this country!My favorite find in the countryside so far :)
So much color so much simple beauty!
See you soon.

So the time is almost near.
The open weeks at The Mansion.
I am so excited!
Soon, soon, soon we will be "dungeon crawling".
Literally, from dungeon to dungeon to dungeon, amongst 20 something dungeons and play rooms (might be 30, it was hard to count last time I was there)
My heart skips a beat thinking about it!
If you are into BDSM and haven't visited The Mansion, it is like you are into Roller-coasters and never visited Tivoli!
It's a very unique place!
A classic, really old, really big building with a wonderful ghost-like aura hovering allover!
The hotel area, the big dining room, the breakfast room, the staircases, the big corridors, have memories of their own.
Every coat of paint, every chiseled curve of wood, every polished stone, every scratched milky piece of glass, give you the sense of memories past. Calmly entering your brain, making all your senses awake and alert.
The glory of the past, the "might have been" and the decay of time, meeting perfectly the wonderful decadence of the 20 plus timeless dungeons in the basement.
The smell of wet stone, iron and wood, the dying candles in the late hours of the night, the muffled screams and sharp sounds of a whip echoing in the empty dark corridors.
The sounds of untold pleasures!
Pure lustful poetry.
And time stands still ...
My head is spinning. I can't wait.
I have been waiting for it 6 months now.
Pet and I had the time of our lives there last New Years.
It was one of those experiences you NEVER forget.
And we were there only one and a half day. Now we will stay for almost a week!
As I write this My heart is pounding!
Only a couple of weeks away ...
