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…

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…

Fairytale Forest

On one of my last days in Sweden, I did something that I had been meaning to do for a long time: A photoshooting in the woods. So I went hiking, bit I took with me everything I would need to take the kind of pictures I had in my mind. I didn't drive far,…

The Swedish countryside

During my days in Sweden I visited the Swedish countryside around Näsåker. It was a long drive on mainly well kept roads, but partly also on gravel roads. I find them rather hard to drive on, because you can't see damage in the road as well as on asphalt roads and I always feel like…

Some much needed rain

So then came a day of rain. Finally. After weeks of drought and heat, finally some rain came. And with all the forest fires going on in Sweden it was very much needed. I was so happy when I looked outside the window in the morning and noticed all the clouds, that were hanging so…

Skuleskogen Nationalpark II

I'm writing this now after a long and exciting day. We went hiking in the Skuleskogen Nationalpark again and took the south entry this time. We went to see Slåttdalsskreva and took the hiking trail over Slåttdalsberget to get there. It was super hard to  go all the way up, especially since the way soon led out…

Into the forest

Yesterday evening I drove around a bit to explore the area around Örnsköldsvik. I found this remote road, leading deep into the forest. I stoped the car and got out to explore a bit of the forest nearby. It was beautiful in the evening light of the (seemingly) soon setting sun. After spending some time…

Skuleskogen Nationalpark

Today I went to explore Skuleskogen nationalpark, south of Örnsköldsvik. It is an amazing place with many different views. There is a lot of forest, but also very rocky terrain, which offers an entirely different flora and fauna. Usually this area is very humid and full of water, but there is a drought in Sweden…

Finally

Finally finally finally I can say that I am in Sweden again! Yesterday I took a flight from Germany to Stockholm and drove all the way up to Örnsköldsvik! It was so interesting to take the same road as we did last winter and see how different the landscape looks with just a few months…
