In the Swedish mountains

On Monday, last week, I started my little journey to visit Michelle in Lofsdalen. I was a bit tired from the restless night, but really excited to see my friend again and spend some quality time. The weather was expected to be awful on that day. Dark and stormy, but she had heard about some…

An evening shock

Last week, I went to Lofsdalen, to visit my friend Michelle. On the last day at home however, something awful happened. I was sitting at my desk, editing some photos of my recent berry picking adventure in the forest and trying to organize myself before my travels in order to make sure I wouldn't forget…

Picking cloudberries

'Tis the season. Not christmas of course (not yet anyways), but berry season! YAY!!Now one after another, all sorts of berries start to ripen and are just sitting in the forests, waiting to be picked. One of the earliest to be out is the cloudberry. It is typically found in swampy areas and wetlands, so…

Gardening

Skeppsmalen

Recently, I spent an evening at Skeppsmalen, watching the sun turn from bright blue to orange, to pink as the sun set. The cliffs there are really beautiful and have a special meaning to me, because that is where I wanted to watch the supermoon eclipse 2 years ago, when I was in Sweden and…

The last few months went by in a rush and I haven't exactly been active on here. So what have I been doing in the meantime? Well mostly I have worked. As some of you may have read on instagram, I found a job as primary school teacher at a nearby school. It was set…

Summer is here

The last few months have gone by in a rush and I have absolutely not found the time to keep this blog up to date. Soon the summer break starts, so I will have more time then, but I also have so many things that I can't wait to do! So instead of saying much…

My little winter roadtrip

Last week we had sportlov here in Västernorrland, so the children were on holidays and so was I. Well, not entirely. I was working on Monday, to plan some things and do paperwork that I otherwise hardly would find time for, but after that I had time for myself and I used it to travel!…
