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…

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…

Misty mornings

The mornings are increasingly beautiful now, as it freezes more and more often. We sadly hardly ever have fog in Östergraninge, but all around the village are places where it is often foggy on cold mornings. One morning I was really longing to take some photos, so I went out and first checked with my…

As some of you may have noticed, I have a little shed in my garden. It offers quite a lot of room for different stuff and was until now mainly used to have a place for different planting pots and the lawn mower. In the shed stood old cupboards and shelves that looked like they…

Language II

Or in other words a little update on my Swedish skills. This is again a very long post, with little pictures and a lot of text, be aware 😉 So far my history with language courses went like this:I started SFI course B in March, but because of the skills I had gained at work…

Garden update

Autumn is here and so is the time for harvest. Since I didn't have time for updates on my garden and greenhouse during the summer - here we go! I think the last time I updated was when I set out most of my plants. What an exciting time! In the spring, when I began…

This little creek

On the way between Östergraninge and Bispgården there is this little creek by the side of the road, that I have been dying to finally take pictures of with my drone. I have been super curious about it for a while now, because from the road and especially while driving there is only a very…
