Herrang hideaways–gems by Mimmi & Fredrik

Photo from Castle-Hop Do not make plans, just go with the flow. When something happens, go there! Take part! Go to the rocks by the beach to swim during breaks. It is the best place to hang out on hot days. Bring mosquito repellent to Dansbanan in the evenings. If you cannot clone yourself to be three people at once (one who dances, one who participates in social activities and one who is at home sleeping) make sure to be totally present right where you are!

But it is precisely this decision-making responsibility that gives them the freedom to only lead a select set of vocabulary that they feel comfortable with. Followers, on the other hand, have to be prepared to follow a wide variety of vocabulary, a sum of the vocabulary of all of the leaders they dance with, including vocabulary they may be...
