Star gazing

One of the things that have moved me the most since I have arrived in Sweden, is the nightsky. I am still surprised everytime I look up at how many stars there are to see in the sky and anytime I step out at night and look into the sky my heart skips a beat…

Roadtrip to Boden

Last weekend I went on a roadtrip to Boden to visit my lovely friend Iza. We had met before in the summer and just after my arrival to Sweden and had planned since then that I would come for a visit to Boden! We only planned that I would come for a visit, but not…

Sunlight

After some cloudy weeks the sun is back again. Now the days are noticeably longer (the sun sets after 16:00h and rises shortly after 8:00h) and the sun rises higher up in the sky with each day. On one hand that makes me kind of sad, because it means that the super short winter days…

Sunny winterdays

Clouds were gone in the last week and the days were incredibly bright. Everyday the sun stood noticeably higher in the sky, the days were noticeably longer and ice crystals were sparkling in the sun. On sunday it was especially beautiful. Just 2 days earlier some fresh snow had fallen, but the temperature dropped below…

Ice fishing

On saturday I went ice-fishing with a friend. We started in Bispgarden and drove to a nearby lake, where we drilled some holes into the ice... It was quite thick and we were lucky, that the drill was just a bit longer than the ice was thick! This was the lake The surroundings were amazingly…

Walk in the woods

Today was a beautiful day outside, so I took the chance to go for a walk in the woods. The warm temperatures of the last few days have melted away a fair amount of snow, so in the forest bits and pieces of bushes and smaller plants started to show again. The snow itself was…

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…

High Venn

Recently I went hiking in the High Venn in Belgium. It is a highmoor in the Eifel and a super inetresting place. We went hiking on what was the rainiest day I experienced since my time in Sweden and in this area probably the rainiest day since May... Oh how I loved it! Even though…

Weekend at the beach

In my latest post I wrote about arriving in our holiday home in a tiny village called Groede in the very south of the Netherlands. I had planned to write more about that way earlier, but I was much too sick to do so! I was sick on the weekend itself and did not much…
