Travel theme: weather

There is no such thing as bad weather:)

This summer we spent a week by the Como Lake in Italy. It offered different kinds of weather for us. Most of the days where sunny and hot, but one night we had a horrible thunderstorm including hard wind, rain and thunder… When we waked up the next morning the lake and mountains was all covered in moisture, it was really amazing to watch. We witnessed a scenery with clouds and haze in a wonderful mix.

I can see all weathers as beautiful in there own way, they are creations of natures great art:)

The view in the photo is from our apartment, situated above the lake.

No place is like home

Home sweet home

Long time no seen… Finally back home:)

This summer have been busy, but in a good way. I have travelled to three countries, I have been in the sun by the pool, I have been hiking by the Como lake, and there have been some city life in London.

My summer has been fantastic. But I’m happy to be home now:) This morning was one of this beautiful August mornings… Haze over the sea and the sun trying to come through. The feeling is unbeatable. I could feel heat from the sun through the haze. The water was completely still, no wind. The only sound was from some fishes hitting the surface.

So I’m back home, and back behind my computer. It will be a busy autumn, but a lot of fun. I’m going to be student and will learn a lot of new things. And of course I will spend some time blogging:)

I hope you all have had some wonderful time this summer and that you all are looking forward to the autumn with anticipation.

Hiking outdoors: Weekend recreation

Time for recreation and recovery

Last weekend we finally got out hiking, after a long winter. This winter I have been studying full time and working, also full time. That means hardly no time for recovery. I have been longing for some time of, and finally I have got it:)

We planned for a hike during to days on Sormlandsleden, a 1000 km long hiking trail in magic landscape. We brought a tent for camping and took of. Absolute, 100 procent freedom -for me. We crossed through the forest, passed near some cows in a meadow. The main part of this trail (we walked 18 km) was following the coast by the Baltic sea, which mean some awesome views.

We found a calm and silent place to camp, far from the nearest house. Close to the sea and with a small beach just beside our camp site.

A calm evening, and we spent some time just relaxing and reading.

The most amazing experience on this hike was waking up to a clear, blue sky. The only thing that broke the silence was some birds:)

The weekend was awesome and we will do it again as soon as possible! Camping in nature brings magic to a tired soul:)

Cold April -wonderful skies

Cool skies in April

The best thing about April and the cold, unstable weather is the great clouds… I love the skies in April, it never bores me:) Lot of clouds and some sun shining through. That makes it all a bit dramatic and fun to catch. One second its sunny, the next its raining. And between its just clouds with some sun lighting them up, awesome if you ask me.

This evening I was on a small hiking tour and caught some clouds, but unfortunately its not many photos that looks like I planned… It was a bit windy and there was a lot of unsharp branches in my pictures. Here you can see two of the pics from the hiking, in my opinion the best once.

A blue ocean in the forest

Time of in the blue

I selldom get out in the forest these days. I’m very busy, working and studying full time… Not much photos or blogging… I will be back in about sex weeks, when school is of for the summer. I hope you stay and return here when I have mor time again.

I must say, I’m happy to see all visitors on my posts, thank you!

Well, last Sunday I took some time of to visit the forest. I know a place where the ground is all blue with the small flower hepatica. I love their color and they are rare flowers here so I’m happy to see so many of them:)

After my walk I felt happy and filled with a lot of new energy, I should do this more often… !

Good morning sunny day

Like the first sunny day…

Every new day is just that… NEW and every sunny morning feels like e new beginning, filled with promises. A new sunny day!

I love getting up early, also when I have days off.

Last weekend (on Easter eave) I got up early and walked out into the sunny morning. The calmness was overwhelming and the world was as beautiful as ever. Love the calm water and the fragile light. Love the haze and the fresh, crispy morning air.

Lonely reflection by the sea

Wonderful place to be lonely

Watching the sea is always calming. There’s nothing more comforting and relaxing than walking on an empty beach or stepping out on the stone path leading to the water. Some time spent lonely by the sea is well invested time, always.

Early spring is a great time for this. No people out on the beaches, no people in the archipelago.

Just time alone, time for reflection and recover. Just what I need after a long dark winter.

What is you favorite place for reflection?
