Winter on Spring

My host parents told me it’s very unusual in Skåne to have more snow and have the winter atmosphere on spring time. Few weeks ago, I posted some flowers blooming around. And now, it feels like a bit of winter wonderland again. Weather forecast said there will be mixed of snow during the night and raining somehow and some Sunshine. But who knows? No one knows! But it’s okay. People might get annoyed on it. But I’m lovin it. I always Love winter time . Especially when the sun is up and the blue skies appears on the horizon. The coldness that touches your face while the sun competes to strikes some rays on your skin.

I hope you are having a great season 💙

Last winter in Skåne 💓

YESSSS! Few days of winter has arrived. And I’m lovin it for real. Way back from November last year.I have been wishing some snow fall in any moment of those days. Unluckily, no snow fall and no winter wonderland feels. I went to Strängnäs for Christmas and New year. The day I arrived was the day when the snowfall stopped. Literally,it’s winter but everything is frozen and hard as ice and cold.

The winter last year also did not take so long. Five days of snow and it melted. And now another few days of white snow fall and it’s enough. I could not explain how happy I am like a kid.

“I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape — the loneliness of it; the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show.”

– Andrew Wyeth

“To appreciate the beauty of a snowflake it is necessary to stand out in the cold.”

– Aristotle

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, ‘Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.'”

– Lewis Carroll

Probably my (our) last winter in Skåne! 💓

We’ll Miss this place for sure 💓 BUT WE’LL KEEP ALL THOSE GOOD MEMORIES AS WE COULD. ABI GAIL will be moving in Belgium to continue her au pair adventures . As I am heading back home to the Philippines for good.

FALLen Leaves

Last year, I also made a blog about autumn in Skåne(but some pictures in the area I lived) But this year,it was totally different. I visited few places that i didn’t visit before and be able to take my bicycle with me chasing some leaves instead of sunset. If you’re a nature lover, you don’t just feel the amazement or the wow feeling about some certain things. You feel like being connected that’s there’s really something that connects you to it. Something surreal that you can almost cry and imagine life would be much more easier. Some people have this thing called “Autumn depression ” when suddenly the surrounding turns grey and all of the sudden the sun will not showed up. But the best thing about autumn is that when the sun comes out and the rays from it strikes to the dying coloured leaves.It gives more life. It adds more colours. It’s gives more hope. And it added some pinch of happiness that we as individuals are longing to. It gives light,a new perspective about life that not every dying leaves are genuinely dying. They’re dying for purpose. And that purpose is to prepare it selves to embrace and be ready for another season.

So now, I’m sharing how Skåne county attributes its autumns beauty to some expat and explorer around the area.

THE PUBLIC CEMETERY IN MALMÖ 🍂

Torup nature reservation area 🍂

The area I lived in 🍂 A PUBLIC PARK IN MALMÖ (I’m not really familiar with their designated names but I will not surely be lost there 😆)

I’m sure there still more beautiful places to explore aside from these places I visited to. As they said “Beauty is in the of the beholder ” It depends how you see things in your own naked eyes. That beauty doesn’t exist on its own but created by observers.

It’s not how stormy the day was, how sunny it could be. How a flower bloomed or how the autumn leaves fall. Some people might find it not nice at all. And some may seem find it as a gem. After all, what is important is we try to see things in a way that we like it. If you see things differently and consider it as something special then be it. We need more people in these world who will help other people to see beyond that object, beyond that piece.If you see start seeing things in a beautiful way. Imagine how beautiful the world is. Because there’s always always always a beauty of everything.

A sunny morning with the neighbors cat 

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 💕

X😽x😻

Catch me by the sea 🌊 

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 

Road less travelled 🚲

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 ☀️
