Cabin diaries

Knowing, that my cat Pixie would be in good hands with my neighbor, I got on my way to Östersund a friday afternoon in January to meet my friend Michelle. 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…

Little life update

I have been so quiet on here lately and that for good reasons: as of the beginning of January I started to work full-time as a primary school teacher. My job is limited until the summer, but until then I am working at a school in a village close to mine, which fills up my…

One year in Sweden

As some of you might already have seen on Instagram, I recently (on the 28th of december 2019) had my one year anniversary in Sweden! It was an incredible year. 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

The last days of November were like the days before that - mostly gray. However the very last day of November was beautifully sunny and frosty again. It was a lovely bright saturday with polar stratospheric clouds at the sky that could be seen almost all day long but especially during dusk and dawn! But…

Little life update

I know I haven't posted anything again in a while, so I thought I would write a little update again before writing more posts going into details and containing more photos! 🙂 HEALTH - I am counting 3 colds so far and 1 stomach flu very recently. I hope I will be less affected by…

Sick – again!

What can I say? Working with kids has its very own risks and with my sinus issues I am predestined to catch a cold more easily. I have been sick at home for a few days again, resting, drinking tea, drinking water, trying to stay warm and trying to get better. Day after day I…

Dark times

The darkest time of the year has finally arrived. Especially after the switch from summer- to wintertime, the days feel incredibly short. At the moment the days get shorter at a rate of 6 minutes everyday. The sun rises at around 8:00h in the morning and sets at around 15:00h. Again it has been very…

Healthy again

It was quiet again here for a while. I was sick. Like really sick. As some of you may know, I struggle a bit with health regarding my sinuses. I have always had trouble with ear/nose/throat infections since I was a child and I even had an operation done 2012 to straighten the middle part…

Visit to Germany

Again a pause in posts. And I start again with a blogpost a little different than usually. As I had mentioned in an earlier blogpost I spent the two last weeks of August in Germany. Right after we returned the moose hunt started, we got a kitten and we were in the lucky company of…

Fishing and exploring

I have really come to enjoy going out with Tom to fish. Contrary to Germany it is not required to have a general fishing liscence, you only need to buy fishing cards for the lake or area where you are fishing. That makes it very easy to just stop at a place, buy a fishing…
