Kyrkesund.

Another site we visited on the May long weekend, was the stunning harbour of Kyrkesund. Again, this probably doesn't have a huge amount of excitement to every Swede - as we pulled up to the small harbour, my boyfriend looked slightly bored pacing like an unenthused father trying to hurry the kids back into the …

Pilane.

With a sunny long weekend gracing us with its presence, we celebrated the beginning of May with a delicious fredagsmys feast on Friday as usual; a spread of ribs, gruyere cheese, baguette, shrimp salad (or skagenröra) and grapes, a visit to the gym and relaxing on Saturday, a family BBQ on Sunday evening, and a …

Being a child again.

I was chatting with my classmates a few days ago, describing how I feel like a child again. Every little social experience seems like an incredible feat. Thankfully I'm not the only one, and we shared some great laughs about picking up one or two words per sentence and hoping we're not agreeing to marry …

Spring has sprung!

It was a glorious spring day yesterday (until exactly 19:50 when it began pouring, ten minutes before my bus arrives home - of course. Looks like Melbourne weather has followed me), so I headed into Göteborg a few hours before my class at Folk Universitet to enjoy the city and have lunch in Haga. Every …

Apparently it is Spring.

Here are some photos from a short walk I took on an afternoon last week. The sun was shining the day before, and it wasn't too bad when I had left the house yet after about twenty minutes of walking I was hit with grey skies and incredible winds (I could hardly hear my podcast playing no …

A new direction.

Earlier last week I decided to walk in a new direction. I didn't want to walk along the main road, or hear the cars (considering we don't live in the city, I thought I would take advantage of the quiet and nature). I set off in a new direction, checking Google Maps on my phone …

Daily walks.

Here is a little snippet of my daily walks in the nearby area on Tjörn. Each day I usually walk for about 45 - 90 minutes (depending on the weather and how my knee is holding up) around the following areas. Before I head off, I make myself a nice breakfast, which to be honest …

Toftenäs vandringsled.

I love to go for walks. I could walk for hours and hours, whether it be around cities or amongst nature. At home, I will always choose to walk around the CBD in Melbourne, and hardly ever get the trams even though they are free, it is just something I enjoy doing. I think it …

Sundsby hiking trails.

Last weekend we went on a short hike to a nearby hiking trail at Sundsby (Mjörn the small island that connects Tjörn and Orust) with spectacular views. Pictured below is the full trail, because I am still having issues with my knee, we took the route of Point 1 - 5, or maybe it was 1 …

Palmhuset, Göteborg.

Living out of the city means I need to catch a bus and then a train into Gothenburg (Göteborg), which I actually quite enjoy. The bus is so cosy and warm, and quite fancy. The trains are even nicer, with tables at almost every seat and bathrooms on board (think V-Line - Victoria, Australia's country train …
