Visit to Germany

Again a pause in posts. And I start again with a blogpost a little different than usually. As I had mentioned in an earlier blogpost I spent the two last weeks of August in Germany. Right after we returned the moose hunt started, we got a kitten and we were in the lucky company of…

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…

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…

Quince harvest

Last weekend I got to harvest my parent's quince tree. I had noticed that it was heavy from all the fruits for quite a while, but the harvest can only start after the first frost. So after we had that 2 weeks ago, I just waited for a nice day to relieve our tree of…

Velbert and surroundings

Another hike I undertook with a friend led me to the area around Velbert. It was only a short hike, so I didn't take many pictures, but I just had to try out my new tele lens. Many pictures turned out blurry, because I have yet to learn how to handle the tele lens and…
