So my holiday just started last Thursday but today is the beginning of everything. So, I’m staying in Strängnäs for a week with my family.
7 deg C and it feels like summer.
Here comes lil crucos trying to amazed me with its beauty early in the morning with some great sunshine.
It’s not windy like in SKåne (Southern part of Sweden) I woke up quiet early today since my niece was an alarm clock. Kicking me all the way and crawling back and forth.
I can’t help it! These munchkin is such a cutie ♥️ Well, we never seen each other for three months. She’s definitely missing me a lot (hopefully yes) 😴 KIDS ARE KIDS 💩
We went playing in the garden then here comes our uninvited visitor visiting us.
The neighbors cat X😻x😽 I think she/he is ready for some tan 😂😁🙄😅
I think she really loves this cat. And I hope she’ll have one, one day (SOON) Auntie Miessy will be happy too. Well, I prefer a dog.
Hope you all have a great day with a lot of sunshine ☀️
Hugs from us 💕
Spring is on it’s way and I can’t wait for real. Running, walking miles , biking , wearing some thin clothes and be free from the winter atmosphere.
As I lived close to the sea. I have the opportunity to visit the seaside anytime I want. It’s make me feel so relax,calm and I feel very peaceful within. Like standing or sitting on the seashore watching the birds flying over the waves. How the waves hits the rocks . How the blue sky reflects its beauty to the mirror of water. I know, not every human race try to see every details of how our mother nature reveals.
Another blue sky appears on the surface
Birds are coming back
Green grass appearing
Hope is coming and more energy and perhaps more positivity will conquer
And more importantly the sun is up daily
So walk as far as you can, go for a bike ride wherever you wanna go until your legs get hurt and numb 😅 (YOLO) 😬🙈🙉🙊
Love the life you live 🌊
At some point in life,
nature becomes enough for the lonely soul
The silence of the sea
that surrounds you and you can feel it
Smell the fresh air from the ocean breeze
The salty air that blew everywhere
and the magic that whisper in to your ear
Let your soul and spirit fly
Growing up in such a tropical place with the sun rays up to 40 deg C every day is really exhausting. Who never loves changes?
Every winter is really important to me.When a European friend asked me why I’m into snow? Winter? I simply answered them because I like it. But behind that ( I really don’t know how long will I stay and be able to see and enjoy the winter time) That’s why I’m enjoying every snowflakes that drops from the sky.
It’s cold literally but there’s no reason to stay indoors.
It beautifies everything that covers
Just get up right and and make the most of the fresh of the white season.
It’s not really a good winter this year. A day full blast of snow and its melting on the next day .but hey! at least there’s always a thing that we’re looking forward to . The changes of the season . Like Passenger song lyrics said “Only miss the sun when it starts to snow” Only you’ll miss the thing when it’s not there anymore.Like us, we are taking things for granted most of the time. And when it’s gone it’s gone 😂 you’ll never know how important it is until it’s gone (again)😂😅What’s the connection anyways? Haha😁
Looking forward for the spring season! 🌸 What are you looking forward to?
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?
