Björkhult, Sweden

Timmy trying hard to be a model… Good job, buddy!<3

Good morning my loves!<3 Hope you had great holidays so far. I did so.<3 I don’t even know where to start. I went to Sweden very spontaneous. Which is funny because I just started learning Swedish about three months ago, so it was unexpected and perfect. Sweden has always been one of my dream destinations. And I don’t have enough of it yet… I flew to Copenhagen on Monday last week. AirBerlin lost my luggage so I had to wait for two days until it arrived. Well, actually they haven’t even lost it, they’ve just left it in Berlin, haha. From Copenhagen, I continued my voyage to Sweden by train. It was easier to fly to Copenhagen since the place I’m staying at is in the South of Sweden. As you can see Björkhult is in the countryside. It’s in between two little towns. 10km to each side. And a lot of forest around it. Actually, I’m more a city gal but it was nice to come to such a relaxing and calm place. It also gave me the opportunity to work on my blog a lot. So that’s my new and secret blogger-oasis. The couple I’ve stayed at, they are from Switzerland too, have a bed and breakfast here beside their farming. You can check out the website of these two wonderful, and entertainingly people here. Loved that I let me live on salmon sandwiches, haha. Anyway because I’m not a usual guest (I’m never usual, haha!:-P) they also asked me if I want to join them for groceries. Of course, I wanted to because I think it’s a great way to get involved in the everyday life of a country and get to know its people better. We also went to a big market where they bought two new chickens for the morning eggs, haha. I helped a little on the warm. I picked red currants from the garden and hayed for an hour or two. That’s very exhausting and I had two blisters on my right hand, one on my left and two on each foot because I wore too big wellies. All around is forest so I had a nice walk into the forest with the dogs. When you walk long enough you come to a lake. Couldn’t get Timmy and Lotta out of the water. Such cuties! Swedish forests are pretty much defined by ferns, mosses, mushrooms, and a lot of insects (really!!). And of course, I didn’t miss to spot a little, cute Bambi.<3 We also went to an Allsångskväll. That’s a singing event that takes place outside. Artists from the vicinity perform on stage. Everyone gets a little booklet with the songs in it so you can join the singing. Everyone brings their camping chairs, blankets, coffee and something to snack. The wonderful things are that you can see how all generations come together for this event. On stage and in the audience. Beautiful!  By the way, maybe you have noticed that the pictures have a different style to them as usual. I tried to make them look a little bit more retro. How do you like it? I love it!;-)<3 Tomorrow I will be leaving this wonderful place. A place full of sunny hours. And I’m so grateful that I had the chance to be here and spend time with great people!<3 Silvia, Fredy and other guests!<3
