In the Baltic Sea, just south off the coast of Sweden lies the Danish island of Bornholm. I fell in love with this wonderful place with a unique climate and rich history five years ago and decided to return here this summer. Visiting the local glass factories, eating fish at the renowned smokehouses and enjoying the sandy beaches is a great way to relax. Bornholm is also home to a number of great restaurants, cafés and breweries. But there’s more. The whole of Scandinavia likes to celebrate the Summer Solstice. The Sankt Hans Aften as it’s known here bring the whole town together for a night of singing, drinking, feasting and a bonfire - the greatest party takes place at the Hammerhus, a ruin of a castle from the Middle Ages. It’s tomorrow and you can be sure I won’t miss it.
