In the Swedish mountains

On Monday, last week, I started my little journey to visit Michelle in Lofsdalen. I was a bit tired from the restless night, but really excited to see my friend again and spend some quality time. The weather was expected to be awful on that day. Dark and stormy, but she had heard about some…

I learned an incredible lot about myself. And while I made immense progress in my cultural understanding, professional self, language skills and social skills in…

The last November days
