We just finished our second week of holiday and I see the difference deeply in my body: I am much more less tired now!
We visited family and friends, discovered the Baltic sea, Öland and Kalmar, had good times and so on. We pricked everything except the reading: I took 2 books with me but read only 20 pages from one of them. Ah, no big deal, there will be other moments…
Z discovered the Baltic sea a day when it was all grey. It was almost impossible to see the difference between the horizon and the sea and there were no waves at all.
The same day, we got to witness a beautiful sunset from Öland. Not a classical one with a beach in the foreground, but one with a field of gold. It’s been very warm in Sweden the past months (!!) and the grass is not as green as usual. For us, who did not have the finances to go to France this summer, this was very welcome. I even have sun marks on my feet! However, the swedish people are more concerned. It’s not common here to hear that watering a garden is forbidden, or to hear that one must save water. Water is usually a unlimited resource in Sweden. But not this year. And not forever.
