I'm back home at Alex's house after a bit more than a week in a 50 (!!) bed dorm at a hostel in the city. Sharing room with 50 people is an interesting experience but most of all it's a cheap one.
Cheap is not always bad though, I have so many good friends at that particular hostel right now that the fact of having people staring at me while I sleep is not even bothering me much anymore. (Okay I admit it's still a bit disturbing).😴👀
But, after one lively week in the city it was time to go home, and since the house was was gonna get inspected the next day, it was cleaner than ever. I took advantage of the situation and took some pictures for you to see where I spend most of my days. 🏡
All the curtains are down due to the heat. Its already 30°C here and its only spring, so we want to do our best to keep the heat out. 🌞😅
It's quite a huge villa: 2 stories, back yard, carport big enough for 4 cars, double garage, 3 bathrooms, 2 balconies, 9 places to sit around, and I don't even know how many rooms. But there are 5 people living here after all, 6 with me, so the space is quite necessary.
Anyhow, as soon as I came back me and Alex hopped in the car and went straight for a mission that I had been looking forward to: IKEA.
The quest was to find a new bed for a reasonable price to replace Alex's old one which was literally falling to pieces.
So we did, and we even managed to fit it into Alex's little Hyndai (no offence) and put it together the same day.
We celebrated our first investment with some Swedish "fika" (Swedish tradition including coffe/tea and a treat) consisting of some Swedish "skorpor" (dry as hell biscuits) and tea.
Even though Sweden will forever be my home by heart, sleeping in (partly) my own Swedish bed and having some Swedish snack in the cubbord I feel a little bit more like home.
Tonight I'm going to crash early and get ready for tomorrow's festivities, it's Saturday after all.
