Arrivals and returns

With the new year, winter finally made a (late) arrival. In January we got severe minus degrees and even had 3 snowstorms within just 2 weeks. One of them bringing almost a meter of snow basically over night. There was a lot of wind during the storm leading to snowdrifts and fallen trees, which in…

Beach time

During the recent heat wave I did not only spend time at the lakes during the nights, but also durin the days to cool down a bit by the water, enjoy the atmosphere and quietness and read a bit in the sun. It felt amazing, especially knowing that the beach had recently been cleaned from…

A period of warm weather

The temperatures have risen and frost and snow are long gone. Instead we have been left with wet/dirty roads, incredible amounts of puddles and ice still on the lakes with a thick layer of water on it. It does offer some really cool views, especially for thos with a drone. On one of the dark…

Misty mornings

The mornings are increasingly beautiful now, as it freezes more and more often.

One night outdoors

The other weekend I spent a whole night outdoors, because I wanted to see how dark the nights can get nowadays and if there is some fog on the lakes. Tom accompanied me and we drove to different places to check out the surroundings. We knew that there was gonna be a huge amount of…

Another lake – Abborrsjön

Last year when I was in this area of Sweden in the summer, I had a little stop at a lake. and ever since moving here I was very curious to visit that lake again, because it is not very far from my home. It would have been super interesting to see it in the…

Favourite place

At the moment one of my favourite places is at lake Grössjön. It is not far from my home and only takes a few minutes to drive there by car. It is a wonderful place to fish, has a little hut and a fire place and is just perfect to hang out by a campfire,…

Summer nights and the village

With the nights becoming brighter, I become less tired and less willing to sleep. I have all this energy and I usually don't get tired in the evenings before 01:00h if even at all. I have absolutely no trouble sleeping once I close the curtains and lie in bed, but who does that without being…
