VEXALA

HOMELAND

The deeply rooted legacy. The down to earth and sustainable.
The countryside, heritage and the tales of Vexala.
The winding paths and the bushed gravel roads.
Fields, forests, meadows and dikes.
The barns and the outbuildings. The smell of earth and old grass. Fresh grass. Harvest grass.
The security and freedom of our mental virgin forest.
We played. We planned. We built our own lanscapes, huts and stories.
