Even though I come from a largely Scandinavian heritage (I have Swedish, Norwegian, and Danish roots [and a handful of others, as well]), I always felt a little odd when I coming into into contact with people who were very gung-ho about their roots and visiting those "home" countries, for I never had any interest in visiting any of mine. Norway? Eh... Sweden? Not that high on my list. Denmark? Even lower. It's not that I had anything against those countries, of course, or that I was deliberately avoiding them, but just that, in the same way that Australia isn't high on my list, these weren't.

Until now.

I found the place in Sweden that's nabbed a place on my Top Ten list.
