What a trip... So many new experiences and so much to bring home! It's been almost a week since I got home and I think it's amazing how your life can differ from day to day just like that! I'm now back at our apartment after eight weeks overseas and it feels amazing. As they say, there's no place like home. I wasn't so found of Umeå at first, but it just gets better and better all the time and I love our apartment!
So this first week home has been so nice. We went home to my parents over the weekend to meet family and friends. So nice, I love the high coast so much and the Swedish nature overall during summer! Everything is so green, I love it! I showed my family some pictures from India, we celebrated my birthday, ate lots of cake, had lots of coffee (omg, I've missed Swedish coffee) and we also went to Box Distillery on Saturday. A perfect weekend with perfect company!
I also bought the cutest dress for my niece when I was in India! She wanted to wear it strait away and it's the absolute cutest thing I've ever seen!!! So much happiness and joy in such a small person ♥
I love how I said before I left to everyone who asked me how I'm feeing about leaving Joacim for five weeks and I always said that five weeks is nothing. That it's good to be apart from each other and so on and so forth... And in a way I still think I'm right. I think that you need to be able to be apart from each other and also that it's good to miss each other a bit, but five weeks... thats just too long. Hahaha, what were I even thinking. A weekend or a week or so that's okay, but I will never travel for five weeks along again. I'm still so glad I did this trip! Traveling with Sara has been amazing and this trip has just been so nice. As I've said over and over again, we've gotten so many experience in so little time. I think we all have learned so much and it's so fascinating to see how other people in the world think, behave and live.
It's now Monday again! For those who doesn't know me that well, it's my favorite day of the week. This Monday was just a chill day, so tomorrow it's time to step it up again. Sitting still too long isn't really my thing. But what about this blog? I only started it because of the trip to India, but it's been so much fun that I'll just have to keep it. What I'll write about, how often I'll write, continue in English or start writing in Swedish, well thats's all up for the future to decide! But all I know for the moment is that this was so much fun and you should do what makes you happy with no pressure and no stress! Have fun and take care!
Love, Elina ♥
