Bureaucracy

One thing I have wanted to talk about for quite a while is the burceaucracy and the experiences I have made. I have already written about the personnummer here in Sweden and what a hussle it was to get it, but that was back in February/March. It took me until now, to open a bank…

Little explorations

For a long time I had wanted to check out a bit more of the other side of the lake Graningesjön. Everytime I drive to or from Solleftea, I come by this one place on the road, where you have an amazing view on the lake and on what seems to be an island. I…

Evening at the lake

A neighbor I recently talked to gave me the advice to check out the other shore of the nearby lake Grössjön. So I did. I went there with my drone so I could take pictures from many different angles. I hadn't used my drone in such a long time and I was so glad to…

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…

Hängbro in Bispgården

I finally got to visit the hanging bridge in Bispgården. It was just a small trip but definitely a place I will come back to!We only went for a small walk and thought we should go there. The view around was beautiful, even though it was a dark and cloudy day. The water was flowing…

Bjursjöberget Naturreservat

Recently I visited Bjursjöberget Naturreservat. It is very close to where I live and I have been there before. However it was hard to hike in the winter because of the deep snow in the forest, so I promised to myself to return when the snow has melted. This photo I took at the end…

Water and ice

Before the ice finally melted I took a walk in the forest and up to Grössjön and took some last pictures at the lake while some of the ice was still on it. The forest was finally free of snow, so I was able to walk through the woods around the lake a bit and…

Spring days and nights

While it was warm and sunny during the days in April, as soon as the sun vanished it got cold again. However the nights got shorter and shorter and stopped reaching 100% darkness. Most of the time at least a very faint gloom of light was visible at the horizon. This photo I took at…

Evening Fishing

Now that the days grow longer and warmer, I can learn more fishing techniques than just ice-fishing. At the moment there aren't a lot of mosquitos yet, so it is very cozy to sit by the water and just enjoy the sounds of nature (birds singing, water flowing by, wind gently waft through trees) and…

Unexpected snow

Hahahahahaha 😀 One day after blogging about how all the snow has melted and disappeared, the temperatures dropped to 0°C again and I awakened to a white landscape. The rain that started to fall yesterday turned to (a looooooot of) snow over night and covers all the freshly appearing green in a soft and wet…
