Sweden / Travel

Deep-frozen house

Let’s do a bit of travel, back to when I was in Sweden to visit my family in February. There was a plan to go over Easter instead, together with Johan, but we needed some time apart and I was a bit afraid of Elvis going to dog heaven, he’ll be 12 in June. Soooo happy I went, have no idea of when I will see my family again.

These pictures are from a roadtrip with mum, Thomas & Elvis. Thomas, stop the car, I need to see that deep-frozen house! A beauty, right?

All these old wooden houses around Sweden, love that this one isn’t painted red. Do you know why the red is traditional? Back in the days, the poor people tried to fake brick red to paint their wooden houses with.

Easter came and went, Johan and I made some traditional Swedish Easter food. Not really celebrating, but if there’s a reason to eat, I’m in. Every day is a reason to eat and we’re soon going to have the leftovers for dinner. Yesterday morning we took a walk, all the way to Mitte and it was wonderful to change neighbourhood in all this virus chaos. This lady got a bit too obsessed with reading the news, 4-5 German newspapers and 2 Swedish ones. This has now stopped and maybe I can get a bit obsessed with blogging instead? I hope you’re all safe and well. It would be fun to do a Q&A, so feel free to post questions in the comments (tried it before, but didn’t get enough questions, so I’ll give it another shot). Talk soon!

Edit: I did have a Q&A just a couple of months ago, since I started taking medicine, I forget things very easily. I guess it’s a result of relaxing and not trying so hard to be in control anymore.

    Hello! So happy to be reading your blog again!
    And reading your story of your health and return to wellness. Do you miss going out for coffee? I do A LOT. Do you make coffee at home? We do but it’s just regular coffeemaker coffee. Not the same. πŸ˜’
    I first heard about nitro coffee from your blog and I ran right out to my fav local coffee shop Discovery and yep they had it! I was practically the first person who asked for it. Take care of your special self.

    I love your blog, your photographs and your Wrist Worms (I ordered a seven pair for my friends a couple of Christmases ago. Question, you seem to like dogs so much, would you and Johan ever get one?

    I love your photography.
    Was it hard to move to Berlin? You knew the language fairly well, I seem to remember. Aside from being away from your family, what’s the hardest? What’s the best? Well, obviously Berlin, but aside from that?

    I mentioned it a little while ago – now taking my chance, haha! Would you share the story behind the buttcrack charakters? I’m so curious! Lots of love to you!

    Hello Sandra – I hope the sun is shining for you in Berlin today. I have visited Sweden a few times and spent time in the conytryside, Sockholm and Gotheneburg. My favourite place was definitely Gothenburg – what do you like best about the city?
    Enjoy your day!
