Bureaucracy

One thing I have wanted to talk about for quite a while is the burceaucracy and the experiences I have made. I have already written about the personnummer here in Sweden and what a hussle it was to get it, but that was back in February/March. It took me until now, to open a bank…

Goodbye Snow

Spring is here now and the snow has almost completely melted. It went really fast now, just a month ago we had so much snow left everywhere and only the roads were free. Now however, only very shadowy places have snow left. Here are some photos from last week. How beautiful it was outside with…

Visits

In the last weeks, I was sooo busy with the guests I had.As I wrote in an earlier post, my mum came over from Germany to visit me and stay with me on my birthday and right after her came a friend from Germany for a visit! While they were here I kept working and…

The Swedish Personal Number

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I finally got it. The swedish personal number. It took me longer than expected, because to me it was quite intransparent what documents exactly I would need. Constantly I felt like I had to hand in more than what was requested and the whole ordeal just kept getting…

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…

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…
