So over the next couple days I’m going to post some pictures of my Christmas, some funny videos, and some to let you inside of our home to see what it was like. I sure missed my family yet I have to say that it was so much fun. Learning new things and being on this side of the world with my girlfriend has been amazing since she was with me in Denver for the past 2 years. This has been a great opportunity for me to see how things are over here. I hope you enjoy these pictures and be sure to check back for what I have in store for later 🙂 ENJOY!
When I was young my favorite parts of going to school was the field trips. I mean who doesn’t love getting away from what you are suppose to be doing so that you can travel away for a little bit and try something new?! Well as it turns out when you grow up, and time becomes important these field trips become less fun. Today however was a little different, today we were going to Stockholm’s Modern Museum or I should say Moderna Museet. I was looking forward to going to this place and after all, part of going to a new country is learning the history and about the culture.
Friday, must I say anything more? I mean it’s the end of the week! It also means another week here in Sweden and I suddenly I remembered. I have a ticket right now to go back to Colorado which leaves on Monday. It seems as another week ends it’s not just another week that ends. Next week has changed it’s course because of my Visa. I have this ticket and it’s not going to be used. Continue reading
So You really just have to taste it to understand but I guess until someone figures out how to send food via the Internet, (Watch the movie: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and see Wonka Vision) I figure pictures are the next best thing.
Every night Most nights consist of some type of snack or “kvällsfika” as it’s called in Sweden. Homemade bread from her mothers oven, (tonight it was toasted first) olive oil, freshly sliced cheese, and fresh marmalade. Luckily we have access to some just made raspberry marmalade which was just made 2 days ago. Oh my how this is so damn delicious. Yeah I know what you’re thinking, “How can you get your hands on some of that?” And my answer to you is sorry, you can’t! But you can look at the pics and enjoy.
Today has been a pretty low key day filled with Internet job searching, coffee, more searching, and laundry. After leaving the laundry room while walking up the stairs back home Nadja mentioned how we may need to put my lastname on the door so the mail man (or woman) would know to leave my VISA and person number info at the right house. Just a moment after explaining I had given them her last name for delivery, the mail was put into the mail slot in the front door downstairs. Ha, and wouldn’t you know as we were speaking about it my VISA showed up! As it turned out today wasn’t just a day of job searching and laundry after all.
Maybe our eyes can’t see around the corner quite yet (think Apple iEyes), but maybe sometimes we just know what’s about to happen without even knowing it.
I was looking through some of my pictures on my iPhone a few minutes ago and couldn’t help but notice this one. This morning I was in this this area today stopping by Urban Outfitters to follow up with the manager at the store because last Friday I turned in my CV (European equivalent of a resume). I took this pic about two months ago and when I saw it I thought it was just a good shot yet tonight this picture seems to resembles work. Two months ago was I taking a picture of an area that would mean more in my future such as a possible place to work? Well who know because I’m not going to think that hard right now.
For now I just stick with this being a good shot. Yet then again I’d have to say when it comes to this job, I feel I also have a good shot. Good Night
