Wonderful Weekend escape

Another wonderful weekend has come to an end

This weekend was amazing, first days of spring with sun and a stunning blue sky. We went out for a short hike, for some time in the sun and to eat some food outdoors.

We had a really wonderful weekend out there in the sun, with small projects like making a fire and cooking lunch:-) Hot chocolate is a must for my familiy on such hiking trip.

Wonderful Weekend

 

After lunch we went looking at the amazing views around the lake. This lake is called Nävsjön and is a great place to visit all year. There were people out on the lake, fishing, I would not have gone out on the ice, but I guess they knew what they where doing.

 

Reflecting sun, slowly melting the ice.

 

The ice is melting fast and I wonder how long it is possible to sit on the ice for fishing.

 

Nature is a great artist, I think the color mix is stunning and spot on or what do you think?

Winter landscape hiking -amazing experience

Winter landscape

First winter landscape 2017… First days with snow, a few weeks passed since Christmas and we finally got our winter:) The sea is, as always, stunning. What can be more amazing than hiking in a sunny winter day? Lot of wonderful light that brings new energy to a tired mind.

I hope you all are able to enjoy the new year and that it started well for you:) I will try to be a more active blogger this year, even if I still studying. BUT I love nature and photography and it makes me happy so I guess its a great way to recover.

Friday morning sunset

Another Friday morning is born

Another stunning Friday morning, its not possible to describe in words or pictures how wonderful the experience was. Mornings is my favourite time of the day. I can watch the new day being born, its something special in that moment. I watch the colours of the sky shifting fast, from purple to orange, depending on in which direction I chose to look.

Mornings give us the opportunity to feel grateful for receiving the gift of another day. But also to feel grateful for the honour to watch the beauty of the new day, the beginning of e new life cycle<3

Saturday Seascape

Seascape in November sun

Earth is such a beautiful place. Every time I’m outdoors, near the sea or in the forest I feel calm and I feel trust in something bigger than us. Nature is calming and healing, as always. I have spent far to much time inside lately, busy studying. I learn a lot but I never calm down enough:D Its no big effort to go outdoors for a few hours, its so worth it and I’m aware of that. Still i don’t prioritise it a lot. But today it happened, I went outdoors all day in the warming november sun. Now I’m fileld with a lot of new energy and can go on studying for hours:) Have a wonderful weekend<3

Autumn in the forest

Lovely walk in the forest

The forest is my favourite place, next to my other favourite: the sea, of course…

Every season has its charm: winter, spring, summer and autumn! Love the change in colours and weather. Soon winter will arrive and I hope we will get a lot of snow this year:) Snow make the world a bit more magic and I think we all need some magic in our lives, or what do you think?

But for today I enjoy the last pictures of wonderful autumn colours, which I think will do just fine! Glad for my trips outdoors, they bring me a lot of energy.

So please enjoy some yellow and bright colours:

Hiking with a view: Lake Como

Wonderful Lake Como

This summer we went to Lake Como for hiking and enjoying the lake:)

We stayed in a small village: Varenna from where it is possible to do several hiking trips. All trails is a bit demanding, its partly very steep but the views are, of course amazing.

On the first day we went on a boat trip cross the lake to Lenno. We took a small walk around the park surrounding Villa Balbianello. Here you can see the view from one point during the walk.

Later on during our week in Varenna we was hiking some harder trails. For example we walked above Varenna, passing the Castello di Vizio, ending up in a village called Bellano. Below you can see some views from that trip.

I have chosen to post a photo of a reflection in the water. The photo is taken an early morning. You can see some parts of a boat looking in the mirror:) You can also see the shadow of a life boy in the water. For more entries in the weekly photo challenge, please click here.

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.

recreation

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:)

Hiking on a cold winter beach

A lovely winter beach.
Another view over the Baltic sea on a cold winter day. The ice is yet not to trust, the water is still open not far from the shore. People that like to skate have to go to the small lakes nearby, this is to dangerous.

But for hiking down the winter beach it’s just amazing to watch and to enjoy all the light the day brings:)

In summertime this place is crowded, its very popular to go here for a swim or to just relax in the sun. Such a contrast, but I love both seasons, this time of the year it gives so much peace to the mind to just walk around and enjoy mother nature.
