Out and about

In January I was finally able to use my new camera and of course used the first opportunity to go out exploring with it. I took one of my favourite forest roads, but took a turn that I never had taken before and ended up in the most beautiful area, at a lake right by…

Beautiful winter sunsets

Most of this winter was a living hell regarding weather. The last few months of 2019 were incredibly dark and grey with hardly any clear sky at all. This additional to the very little amount of light hours everyday made the darkness hard to bear. Not even my beloved stars were visible on most days,…

Little life update

I have been so quiet on here lately and that for good reasons: as of the beginning of January I started to work full-time as a primary school teacher. My job is limited until the summer, but until then I am working at a school in a village close to mine, which fills up my…

One year in Sweden

As some of you might already have seen on Instagram, I recently (on the 28th of december 2019) had my one year anniversary in Sweden! It was an incredible year.

Cracks in the ice

After 2 more days I finally returned to the lakes and now the snow was entirely gone, giving away an amazing view on the cracked ice. It was a really dark day. Thick layers of very deep hanging clouds took away most of the little daylight that we have. At the moment the sun rises…

A period of warm weather

The temperatures have risen and frost and snow are long gone. Instead we have been left with wet/dirty roads, incredible amounts of puddles and ice still on the lakes with a thick layer of water on it. It does offer some really cool views, especially for thos with a drone. On one of the dark…

Sick – again!

What can I say? Working with kids has its very own risks and with my sinus issues I am predestined to catch a cold more easily. I have been sick at home for a few days again, resting, drinking tea, drinking water, trying to stay warm and trying to get better. Day after day I…
