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…

Evening at the lake

A neighbor I recently talked to gave me the advice to check out the other shore of the nearby lake Grössjön. So I did. I went there with my drone so I could take pictures from many different angles. I hadn't used my drone in such a long time and I was so glad to…

Spring with all its power

After days of darkness the sun finally came back. Of course I had an incredible urge to go out into nature and just enjoy the mild winds and soft warm sunbeams on my face. All trees are exploding in different shades of green and I am amazed to watch it. Soon there will be now…

Hängbro in Bispgården

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…

Ice and Snow

Finally more snow came. Like much more snow. Oh how I love that!! Snow turns everything in the most beautiful version of itself... The forest looks just magical, the roads are pretty and fields and lakes look so smooth and calm covered in a thick blanket of snow. Lots of new snow also meant that…

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…
