it's beginning to look a lot like christmas




Although we barely had any snow up until now, the christmas spirit has totally arrived! The christmas markets in town opened and the decoration on the streets and in the stores is being set up. Definitely a wonderful consolation against the dark times - the sun already sets at 15.00h!! This weekend we made ourselves comfortable at 'my' house as my host family was away for the weekend. Other than that, we spent a lot of our free weekend in town again and I finally got myself a proper winter jacket- the cold can come :) xx

getting a little artsy



Just some pretty things seen in 'Nordiska Museet' which is probably the most beautiful building in Stockholm! I will add some pictures of the museum itself in another post (looks a bit like Hogwarts - says the non-Harry-Potter-expert..or at least like a VERY cool boarding school!). For the next year or so, they are having an additional exhibition about 'sugar' which was very nicely made although I must admit I didn't read many of the signs in that section ;) xx

moving to switzerland!


Finally, my plans have got more concrete and I am now going to be living in Switzerland for the next few months! Since I like to travel a lot (as one might have noticed) and uni life is going to be expensive, I thought it would be the best option for me to have a full time job now for a while, so that I have a good base for the travels I intend to do later during my gap year and hopefully for university next autumn.
I'm very excited to spend time in another city and country, even though a big part of my family is from here and it's like my second hometown.
So far I haven't gotten around to take a lot of exciting pictures, so in the mean time I'll just post this picture of a cow I met and the beautiful view I have in the morning!

summer's back




Just like Maddie, I've also had an autumn break (thank god). Although I really love Stockholm, it was nice to get a break and spend some time with my family and family friends in the sun! Since it's quite convenient, we went to Mallorca - not too far away and definitely a very pretty island if you are away from charter tourism ;) - for 10 days and afterwards I spent one day at home before I headed back to Sweden again. It's just been one those perfect holidays with good food, the right people and of course the ocean! xx
