Language

Needless to say, language is incredibly important. And of course so is knowing the language of the country you live in. So this blogpost will be about how I am doing with learning Swedish. All my life, I have always enjoyed learning languages. In school I have learned Latin, English, French, Spanish and after school…

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…

Sunlight

After some cloudy weeks the sun is back again. Now the days are noticeably longer (the sun sets after 16:00h and rises shortly after 8:00h) and the sun rises higher up in the sky with each day. On one hand that makes me kind of sad, because it means that the super short winter days…

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…

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…

Another day on the road

The second day of our roadtrip started with breakfast in the hotel. Which was so nice! Then we continued our drive. We started off where we had left the E4. The E4 is one super long highway, that basically leads across the whole country of Sweden. So we went back on track and started driving,…

Leaving Germany

So today we started our drive. Not exactly at 6:00h in the morning as we had planned, but we were on the road at around 6:30h. Right now we are on the road in Denmark on our way to the second ferry. The first one went from Puttgarden to Rødby and marked my departure from…

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…
