Gardening

Last year, I was so busy with learning Swedish, trying to accustom to the culture and my surroundings, integrating myself in the local society and finding a job; all while also still being in nature, photographing and learning what to do and not to do around here, that I was a bit sloppy regarding my…

What I have been up to

The last few months went by in a rush and I haven't exactly been active on here. So what have I been doing in the meantime? Well mostly I have worked. As some of you may have read on instagram, I found a job as primary school teacher at a nearby school. It was set…
