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 …

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 …

Toftenäs vandringsled.

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 …

Moving to Sweden.

In the twenty-seventh year of my life, I find myself having lived in three countries within twelve months. Recently attempting to fill out my previous addresses over the past ten years of my life left me confused, and made me realise that while I do not feel particularly free-spirited, perhaps I am? I have a …
