2 Years in Sweden

2 years ago today, I was sitting in a rented transporter with my Dad, driving the second half of our trip from Neuss, Germany to Östergraninge, Sweden. We had slept in a hotel in Jönköping and were driving through dense fog towards Stockholm, where the sun was breaking through the clouds, letting frost sparkle everywhere.…

Autumn, Winter and Goodbyes

I know I write this in almost every post, but - oh my, has time flown again! It feels like it was just yesterday when I was outside late at night, admiring the beautiful bright summer nights and longing for the stars and now the winter solstice is already behind us again. After a hot…

I started my drive at around sunset and was greeted by some very intense polar stratospheric clouds right at the beginning of my drive. Shortly…

Out and about
