After a couple of days of shitty,snowy, rainy,grey and windy weather. Finally, the sun has come.Blue sky, featherly clouds and some sun rays aside from the temperature of -2 to -3 degrees around.
It’s quite cold actually but cozy ☀️ Thanks to Mr.Sun for showing up and brighten our day from the dark days.
So, we went biking around the area and take a walk and checking a new route into the woods and (get lost) Me and my best friend have this kind of routine every weekend that we’re taking our Ferraris (bicycle) and bike as much as we can and check some nice places around the area. (If the weather is good and we’re lucky today) 🤣
We went to the golf course. That’s our first time. And unfortunately there’s quite some snow along the road and very glassy so I fell on my bicycle but of course I was hurt and start complaining about my legs but it doesn’t stop us from biking. Like my host mom said only Filipino can do stupid things. (It started when we went to a sauna place in the middle of the sea while it had a snowstorm that time, big waves and we can really feel the whole place moving into the waves.So, I told my host mom about it and she said “We’re stupid” and I just told her. No one died and we’re enjoying it.Like living life (our au pair life haha) She was just worried about us(of course) And I think she has the right to do so.
From the golf course we entered into the forest.A forest full of gigantic pine trees. A reserved forest (kind of) where there are tracks for horses and dogs to run around.
And of course the hightlight of the trip (chasing the sunset) It’s so nice to do things with someone who’s perception and views about life and things is the same as I do. No more arguments. It’s like your eyes will do all the talk and one of you will lead the way and then you’ll do things spontaneously.
So what did you up today? Hope you had a great Sunday ☀️
It’s still winter and chilly everywhere. Well, I can’t wait until the summer comes.
You know when you get bored staying home and even though it’s freaking cold outside but you need to get your ass up and walk, chill around. Coz every holiday break counts.Hahaha!
I’m very obsessed with the pink sky . Not just the pink sky. The nature itself. And since I’m in a lil bit north of Stockholm I’m expecting some snow and mountains and a magnificent sky views.But, unfortunately there was really nothing like in Norway. 🙄 Well, I’m just missing Norway a lot (for real) but I’m pretty sure every places has a special highlights and it’s really depends on how you look into it.
So during my Christmas break from the au pair world. I stayed in my cousins place called Strängnäs. It’s village kind of city with small shops and small thingy around. But having the best cathedral I’ve ever visited. Coming here for like 2-3 times within a year is like coming home in the Philippines. It reminds me of place I left. Quiet, nice neighborhood and happy people around.
So walking around and check the same spot and trail I’ll always been to. Nothing really change.
But nature is not a just place to visit. It’s like home. You really feel connected to it everytime.
I visited Stockholm twice to three times a year since I moved as an au pair in Europe. Aside from my host country, I call it “home”.My cousin lives here and I spend my au pair break here most of the time . Like summer break, winter break and any semester(break) that au pair scheme can au pair.
What’s make me excite about this city is the Main Street where people are running and rushing for shopping. As I told my cousin. It’s like Tokyo(but I never been to Tokyo my entire life) but it’s crowded unlike any other Scandinavian cities I’ve been. Gigantic haha Swedes are everywhere( I thought Dutchies were the tallest European creatures on earth but I doubt it now) haha. No wonder some of the famous affordable clothing lines and designers are from this place. And beautiful men and women too.
Stockholm has many beautiful churches spread throughout the city.And one of my favorite is the main church, and one of the most historical, is Storkyrkan (“the great church”). As a fantasy/legend lover I found it very interesting the story behind it. Like St.George and the Dragon .
One of the main attractions in the church is the wooden statue of St George slaying the dragon. From the late 1400’s, it commemorates the Battle of Brunkeberg when Sweden (St George) defeated the invading Danes (the dragon).
Most of the tourist attractions were adjacent to each other.Walking from the Main Street going to the seaside then you will be welcomed by the Parliament building.
As you walk in to the parliament then you’ll see the Royal Palace where in the Royal family lives.
I think it’s the most visited area within this place. The OLD TOWN (GAMLA STAN) and one of my favorite too.
Small stores, pubs, and restaurants were around the area. The narrow line which is connected to every street is so amazing. Th creepy building /apartment that reminds me of a German horror movie . Hahahha 😬 but a beautiful/historic place indeed.
Happy holidays from the Paris of the North 🌟
They said it changes when the sun goes down (pretty much) ☀️
There’s something about sunset sky that excites me! What really excites you?
Every leaves started to fall
Barely twigs are visible to see
Frosty leaves are everywhere
And winter is nowhere
Golden sun skies appears
Oh! Winter bear
I can’t wait to see you near ❄️
One of my favorite season of the year!Actually ,I like them all 😅Who will never fall in love with those beautiful golden trees in every corner of the streets? That everytime I walk along the aisle of those gigantic trees I feel so magical and very enthusiastic. Feeling the cold breeze air. Playing with those leaves and running around. What a lovely feeling right? Feels like every trees revealing colors they’ve hidden all year.
Oh! FALL, it’s nice to see you again🍁
Everything is blooming most recklessly 🍂
It shows us how beautiful it is to let things go 🍂
Favourite things about fall (walking around and feel the season) 🍂
It’s a second spring when every leaf is a flower -Albert Camus 🍂
I’m so glad I live in a world where there are OCTOBERs 🍁
“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” -F.Scottfitzgerald-🍂
In every change, in every falling leaf there is some pain, some beauty and that’s the way New leaves grow.🍂
Light breeze, colorful leaves and bare trees 🍂
It’s a reminder that change can be beautiful as well. Is anything better than autumn days?
It’s been three months since I left Lillehammer . Days run pretty fast.New adventure awaits, new environment to adjust, new society to fit into, culture and tradition to cope up and a new family to live with. Who says being an Au pair is that easy? 😂😅😌 well, I couldn’t believe I’m still here, wandering in Europe. 😅 Which I’m always be grateful for.
Moving is the hardest part. I have to find new friends again. Look for a network to fit in. Groups or organization or church to be in .😌 on the other hand its sound so exciting. 😎Like a new adventure and experience is waiting ahead.
So, no more mountains, great pink sky and green magical trees around. (Thats Norway 😅) and beautiful breathtaking landscape. But what I’m so blessed to this new place is it’s very close to the seaside 🌊 Luckily, I have the opportunity to watch the sunset by the SEA. (Sounds so romantic huh?! 🌅😌)
Here comes my unstoppable obsession about skies and every little thingy 😬
As Paulo Coelho said that “Beautiful sunsets needs a cloudy skies”
Never waste any amount of time doing anything important when there is a sunset outside that should be sitting under 🌅🌊
