SUMMER IN SWEDEN








Earlier this month (when it still felt like summer!) I was in Sweden with some of my family. Even though most people had their summer Holiday, it never feels crowded compared to Denmark. The only downside is that most people in the area we stayed were Danish as well, so you sometimes feel as if you are still in Denmark. We were extremely lucky with the weather as it was close to 30 degrees which is not that common for Sweden. I think that was the only summer we will get this year.

The house we usually stay in when we are there has a lake view and we are free to use the boats which belong to the house. Being 7 months pregnant it wasn't the easiest getting into the boat, but I managed to do it. Last time I was there and 8 months pregnant with Little A I couldn't even get down the hill to the lake so at least that has improved. Most of the days we spent on the beach and barbecued in the evenings. I look forward to not being pregnant next time we go there as I would be able to enjoy the food much more than I did this time.

One of the days there we also went to a moose safari and nearly had a moose inside our car. Afterwards Little A was a bit more brave than me and tried the moose sausages. We also went to Baastad which is one of my favorite beach towns in South Sweden. I look forward to going back later this Autumn with the newest addition to the family.

  1. Great pictures and it sounds lovely :)
    I am also from Denmark and I love Sweden. But I definitely agree with you, that it isn't the same when all the people are Danish in the area. I went to Fuengirola last year and I only meet British people in the area, that was a bit weird ;)

  2. Thanks Cylia:) Yes, it is definitely not the same travelling abroad and only meeting non local people! Even though going to London might feel the same. I rarely met Londoners living there but I guess that is part of the charm of London;)
