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…

A little bit of sun

It has not been so sunny lately and instead we had very dark and cloudy days, almost all the time in november. It is very tiring and I really feel how it drains my energy. So whenever the sun is shining, I try to use the short period of daylight to get out and reload…

Days of Frost

The day after my last post, I didn't work. I went out with my car and camera and drone and explored different places with the goal of just taking in the beauty of the frost everywhere and if possible also capture it on photographs. In the morning, there was still fog above the trees in…

Aurora Borealis

Finally finally finally I got lucky!I got to see the aurora borealis "dancing" over the sky. Bright and clear without and clouds in the way and I even got lucky that the moon is currently not shining at night and there was only starlight in the sky. It was amazing and I will never forget…

Autumn colors

Reorganizing the shed

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…

When September began

Back in Sweden, I was stressed from the visit to Germany. Even though it had been fun to meet everyone, I wasn't used to the hectic and rush anymore, that automatically comes with so many people in one place. That stressed me additionally to not being able to meet all of the wonderful people I…
