Day 1: Northern Sweden

I got the 7am flight from London straight to Skellefteå (apparently they don't pronounce the "å") where Agnes picked me up and we drove to her dad's house.

384 img 1414 I wanted to take this house with me. It's so beautiful. 385 img 1417 She showed me around and talked about what it looks like in the summer. I had a hard time understanding how that would look. All I could see was this snow.

It quickly got darker outside and we decided to go out and play in the snow (It was me actually, I couldn't wait). The rest of the evening we just cuddled up by the fire. I was so happy to be here.

After a long sleep in we were going to met up with Maja for adventures in the woods. But first, heating up the car.

We brought fika, coffee and cinnamon rolls, and sat in the snow until it got too dark to stay any longer.

Agnes is showing me the area where she grew up today, Frostkåge.

407 img 1535 Her dad has done the signs for this town. 408 img 1536 409 img 1647 2 We started by walking into her favourite forest. 410 img 1569 412 img 1594 1 413 img 1584 double 414 img 1607 415 img 1603 416 img 1614 417 img 1627 418 img 1617 419 img 1619 420 img 1611 422 img 1652 423 img 1648 424 img 1655

We drove away from the forest to the open fields to get a better view of the sunset...

The next day we were invited over to Sanna, to go for a swim in the frozen river, in a "isvak" (hole in the ice).

429 img 1670 430 img 1673 431 img 1678 2 My turn. And it was such a great experience, definitely worth doing this again!
