Finding Zen in Ven

Here’s a scene from yesterday’s excursion to Ven. Surprisingly, of all the islands I’ve visited and lived on over the years, the picturesque Ven never came up on our radar screen. I mean, we knew of it and at some point realized a visit was going to happen. Ven is perhaps too close to home. Not “exotic” enough.

In addition to experiencing the island off-season (arguably the best time to do this as hoards of tourists seem to overwhelm Ven during the summer months), we also met up with a couple of friends that run a small restaurant there. I saw this scene nearby their place, Pausa Hos Oss på Ven.
