Regarding work II

Last week was my first week at work. I am so happy to have found a job like this. I can work with children and get to learn more about the culture and language of Sweden everyday. My colleagues are very nice and explain many things to me when I don't understand, but with every…

Regarding work

Yay!! I found work!! 🙂 Starting on monday I have a parttime job as resurs in a preschool in Solleftea! 🙂 I am super happy with that! Because not only does it give me the opportunity to integrate into society and be around people who speak Swedish all day long, but it will also enable…

Walk in the woods

Today was a beautiful day outside, so I took the chance to go for a walk in the woods. The warm temperatures of the last few days have melted away a fair amount of snow, so in the forest bits and pieces of bushes and smaller plants started to show again. The snow itself was…

Northern lights

In the last few days, I met neighbors and had a friend over for a visit. All of that sadly while *still* being sick, so I wasn't very active on here. I slept a lot in the last few days and went to Solleftea a few times to run errands and meet people. I will…

Happy new year!

The last few days have been a rush but now I finally feel like I am somewhat done and am sitting in front of a cozy fire writing this. First of all I want to wish a very happy new year to everyone who I didn't write it personally too. All of those who I…

The end of a long day!

After driving for two days, we arrived safely at the house at around 19:00h. We were greeted so warmheartedly by the neighbors who sold the house to me and they helped us empty the van super quickly! I am amazed at how kind and loving they are! After finishing, I started unpacking and writing a…

A long day on the road

After a long day on the road, my Dad and I arrived in Jönköping around 20:00h. As I have written in my previous post, we started driving in the morning at around 6:30h and we drove all day. From Neuss to Puttgarden, then with the ferry to Rodby, a few hours driving through Denmark, then…

My last day in Germany

Tomorrow is the day that I will finally start off to Sweden, so today I mainly spent packing the rented van and some last belongings to get everything ready. I started the day off taking some last pictures in our garden, that was covered in frost this morning. What a beautiful sight to wake up…

Farewells

There'll Always Be Unforgettable Memories Behind Your Goodbyes. The last weeks and days have been full of farewells and goodbyes. And even though I have chosen to move to another country, saying goodbye to so many people that I appreciate and love and enjoy having in my life was one of the hardest parts in…

Anticipation

I can count the days until my move to Sweden. And that's exactly what I am doing! 10 days until I arrive at my new home, 9 until I leave everything that I have known behind and start the journey up north. I am already checking the weaher forecast everyday and I am so happy…
