I remember when I got the news, I had gotten Service. Happiness was complete! That was what I had longed for in all my years of continuous exams and rank and file in the tourism- and travel industry at all possible and impossible places. And now at last was my job; then as tourism coordinator, now as a tourist responsible Hjo.
Still, after nearly two and a half years, it's just as fun and challenging. It could not be otherwise in a job where days are filled with a mix; Ads will be produced, Photo shots for the annual tourist brochure will be planned, printed materials to be produced, projects implemented, personal schemaläggas, invoices were booked, souvenirs purchased, tourists will be satisfied, and right now: blog tightened around Vättern! And, sometimes it becomes körigt and one wonders in his own mind "where does all that time the way", but it is worth it because it is so much fun!
Moreover, it is a very rewarding task to promote O and the annual tourist brochure is not difficult to fill with all the finery that Hjo has to offer; wooden town with its authentic setting and beautiful old house with gingerbread along the charming small cobbled streets, cozy cafes, restaurants and small shops selling local products. The steamer Traffic tuffat on then 1892, port, the nature reserve along with Hjoån and of course location by the lake Vättern just at this moment reached the entire 25 degrees; only that a phenomenon in itself. And, I go everywhere and småmyser little when I pallrar me to work in the morning, comply with all the tourists that are already on the move, Moreover atmosfären, the opportunity to slip in and take my morning coffee at one of the cafés and notes that "life is not so stupid anyway", or rather, "Hjo is not so stupid anyway"! Hjo is actually quite amazing ... if I may say so as a somewhat "biased spectator". Of course, I would of course be happy to demonstrate an example of Hjo in his "fantastiskhet". And quite right too. To follow such a.
The other morning I was unusually up extra early. The clock was on the neckline at six o'clock and on the agenda were: paddle on Vättern. A colleague and I met down at the harbor shortly thereafter, still sleep in your eyes, but charged for a lovely day at the lake. Life Jackets, Water Bottles, Mobiles, water tight bag, packed lunch, Paddle, kayaks ... All these issues on the spot - check! Down in the kayaks, and so at last! Silently we glide out on a glassy lake, south direction Almnäs Mill. We paddle through the port, past the boardwalk on the south, along with green beaches and small coves, on a lake which is like an aquarium - so clear that you can see the bottom. It was an amazing morning, a few hours of paddling, a morning swim and a good cup of coffee at a beach. Where can you experience this before a day at work without having to carry for miles, I ask myself? Here in Hjo can it, all this is within walking distance just around the corner. And maybe that's why people experience Hjo as simple and as straightforward, relaxing even. Just as a holiday should be!
So you have not been here before, cordially welcome here to experience a day in the middle of my fabulous job – Hjo!
