Language

Needless to say, language is incredibly important. And of course so is knowing the language of the country you live in. So this blogpost will be about how I am doing with learning Swedish. All my life, I have always enjoyed learning languages. In school I have learned Latin, English, French, Spanish and after school…

The Swedish Personal Number

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I finally got it. The swedish personal number. It took me longer than expected, because to me it was quite intransparent what documents exactly I would need. Constantly I felt like I had to hand in more than what was requested and the whole ordeal just kept getting…

Ice and Snow

Finally more snow came. Like much more snow. Oh how I love that!! Snow turns everything in the most beautiful version of itself... The forest looks just magical, the roads are pretty and fields and lakes look so smooth and calm covered in a thick blanket of snow. Lots of new snow also meant that…

Regarding work II

Last week was my first week at work. I am so happy to have found a job like this. I can work with children and get to learn more about the culture and language of Sweden everyday. My colleagues are very nice and explain many things to me when I don't understand, but with every…

Northern lights

In the last few days, I met neighbors and had a friend over for a visit. All of that sadly while *still* being sick, so I wasn't very active on here. I slept a lot in the last few days and went to Solleftea a few times to run errands and meet people. I will…

So much to do/days in Sundsvall

The last few days I spent either in Sundsvall or at home unboxing. I feel like I want to get so many things done at once, that there is no time for anything else. Not everything went according to plan now and some things turned out more complicated than I thought. I am currently only…

The end of a long day!

After driving for two days, we arrived safely at the house at around 19:00h. We were greeted so warmheartedly by the neighbors who sold the house to me and they helped us empty the van super quickly! I am amazed at how kind and loving they are! After finishing, I started unpacking and writing a…

Another day on the road

The second day of our roadtrip started with breakfast in the hotel. Which was so nice! Then we continued our drive. We started off where we had left the E4. The E4 is one super long highway, that basically leads across the whole country of Sweden. So we went back on track and started driving,…

A long day on the road

After a long day on the road, my Dad and I arrived in Jönköping around 20:00h. As I have written in my previous post, we started driving in the morning at around 6:30h and we drove all day. From Neuss to Puttgarden, then with the ferry to Rodby, a few hours driving through Denmark, then…

Leaving Germany

So today we started our drive. Not exactly at 6:00h in the morning as we had planned, but we were on the road at around 6:30h. Right now we are on the road in Denmark on our way to the second ferry. The first one went from Puttgarden to Rødby and marked my departure from…
