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…

Cracks in the ice

After 2 more days I finally returned to the lakes and now the snow was entirely gone, giving away an amazing view on the cracked ice. It was a really dark day. Thick layers of very deep hanging clouds took away most of the little daylight that we have. At the moment the sun rises…

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…

Picking mushrooms

One time, I was out and about in the forest, taking pictures of frosty leaves on a foggy day, when I found some mushrooms. Now the mushrooms that I found looked like this: Now I have never been mushroom picking before and basically only know not to eat any mushroom you can't identify and the…

Little trips

Sometimes during the summer I went on little trips. One more time I went to Västanåfallet and I must say that it is even more beautiful in the light of the sun, surrounded by all the green the forest has to offer. I could even fly a little with my drone. Another time Tom and…

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…

Spring with all its power

After days of darkness the sun finally came back. Of course I had an incredible urge to go out into nature and just enjoy the mild winds and soft warm sunbeams on my face. All trees are exploding in different shades of green and I am amazed to watch it. Soon there will be now…

Dödafallet

Closeby, here in the area is a very fascinating place, called "Dödafallet", which roughly translates to "dead falls". It used to be a waterfall behind a lake, but through a catastrophe a few hundred years ago, the water from the whole lake emptied, leaving the lake empty and the waterfall forever quiet.

Goodbye Snow

Spring is here now and the snow has almost completely melted. It went really fast now, just a month ago we had so much snow left everywhere and only the roads were free. Now however, only very shadowy places have snow left. Here are some photos from last week. How beautiful it was outside with…
