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!…

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…

When September began

Back in Sweden, I was stressed from the visit to Germany. Even though it had been fun to meet everyone, I wasn't used to the hectic and rush anymore, that automatically comes with so many people in one place. That stressed me additionally to not being able to meet all of the wonderful people I…

Norrlands gold

In July it was time to pick some Hjortron (Cloudberries/Moltebeere). They are very special and only grow in more nordic climates. Here you can find them in swampy areas with a lot of water in the ground - so exactly where all the mosquitoes are. When they are ripe, they become a golden tone and…

Little trips

Sometimes during the summer I went on little trips. One more time I went to Västanåfallet and I must say that it is even more beautiful in the light of the sun, surrounded by all the green the forest has to offer. I could even fly a little with my drone. Another time Tom and…

Little explorations

For a long time I had wanted to check out a bit more of the other side of the lake Graningesjön. Everytime I drive to or from Solleftea, I come by this one place on the road, where you have an amazing view on the lake and on what seems to be an island. I…

Västanåfallet

Not far from my home and basically on the way to Sundsvall is a waterfall. It is so close to the way, that you can already see it from the parking lot, while it is remote enough to offer an enjoyable feeling of solitude in nature and the forest. I had been curious about it…

Bjursjöberget Naturreservat

Recently I visited Bjursjöberget Naturreservat. It is very close to where I live and I have been there before. However it was hard to hike in the winter because of the deep snow in the forest, so I promised to myself to return when the snow has melted. This photo I took at the end…

So much to do/days in Sundsvall

The last few days I spent either in Sundsvall or at home unboxing. I feel like I want to get so many things done at once, that there is no time for anything else. Not everything went according to plan now and some things turned out more complicated than I thought. I am currently only…

Late autumn hikes

Recently I went hiking a few times in Ratingen. I found this great website with hiking routes in the area, so it was easy finding a good place to start. On most of the hikes it was raining and cloudy, so I didn't take as many pictures as I usually do. The ones I took…
