SLR – See Love Remember

And again I find myself in the cold, cold North…

I have to say that over the years Scandinavia has grown on me – I like to come here. The people generally keep to themselves, but are very friendly when you need help. The nature is beautiful with vast amounts of open space. The serenity of it all.

There is only one downside…

While for a lot of European countries I can at least get by with my limited knowledge of languages like Spanish, Italian or French, here I feel utterly and completely lost! Reading – signs, menus, finding my way around the grocery store – is do-able. But somehow the pronunciation turns it all into gibberish again. Lucky for me, speaking English comes very natural to most of the people here 🙂

And even the cold is not so bad! (as long as you dress warmly enough – it’s skill you need to learn I’ve noticed: thermal underwear? check) It can be a lot of fun to cross-country ski over vast snow-covered lakes, frozen solid to the bottom, but I kindly turned down the invitation of this lake to take a swim *brrr*.

I like the Christmas-sy feeling I get when being here, but I have to say that I envy those that went off to warmer places… I’m a summer girl after all.

Ah well, perhaps next month… The year is still young 😉
