Every week I pass by this street, with excitement to see if there is any new graffiti on the walls. These are certainly the best pieces of street art in Gothenburg.
We have been spending our picnic moments with the same blanket for over four years. We love this blanket; it is foldable, light, easy to fit in a bag, and perfect for carrying around. However, this year, small camping chairs got our attention. After noticing the big sale in the shop selling garden stuff, we couldn’t resist anymore and bought a pair.
The garden collection of Granit is perfect if you are looking for some summer inspiration. In fact it only feels good if you are not living in a country that rains four days a week in summer, and you can enjoy your garden without feeling cold in the evenings. That’s the reason why this collection reminded me of southern European countryside.
For the first time in my life, I swam in the Swedish sea.
We are having the warmest days of the year. It is around 30 C (86 F). People are extremely happy and confused. We simply cannot pursue our daily routines, because we know that if we do not appreciate the warmth now, we will regret it immensely in a few short months.
Before I went to Milan last week we got to enjoy the sun in Sweden. On one of those days we grabbed the picnic blanket, a few books and some drinks, then went to our favorite spot in the city: the biggest park, Slottsskogen.
I like to go into the city center on Saturdays. I usually take a walk, check out some shops, take a look at the weekly programs of the concert house and theater, maybe borrow some books from the library, and then have a coffee break at a cafe. [Read more]
The very first serious hiking we did in Sweden was completed exactly one year ago at Vättlefjäll. It seemed like a good idea to repeat the same route on Sunday. Since we are having a mild winter this year, the lakes were not frozen like they were last year. Things looked a bit different without being covered by snow.
The 18 kilometer hiking we did a few weeks ago didn’t kill us, but rather made us even stronger. This weekend we were ready for new adventures, so we looked extensively for hiking routes around Gothenburg, and bought two pairs of lovely The North Face hiking shoes.
