Yesterday afternoon, we finally arrived at our end destination Luleå, in the very North of Sweden, a travel of around 12 hours ( which feels like 24 when traveling with a wild six year old ). Coming from spring feelings and a never ending shiny sun, to drifts of snow, minus degrees and cars driving over the frozen sea. It is slightly (very) different, but oh so nice to be among my own language and people for once.
Look how far up in the North we are! My dear home country Sweden <3
I don’t know if other expats can relate, but I am rarely using my mother tongue in my daily life, so it takes me some time to adapt to speak good Swedish again, after being away from my country for months. I often fill in my sentences with foreign words, as my brain can’t catch up the Swedish word immediately as I speak. How weird, it is the language I’ve been using for my whole life and yet dissapearing when not used, that is why it is so important to keep up the usage of any foreign language you learn, or you may easily forget it.
No time for a long post today, I have a lot of work to do and a lot of snow to enjoy and maybe, if we are lucky, some Northern lights to admire! Hope your wednesday is as great as you! Thanks as always for reading! <3
