Midsommar, first episod

DAY 1

On friday we had a bicycle / kayak trip with Alice. The weather was perfect and we discovered a totally new face of Stockholm !

I took my first dip of the year, in SWEDEN ! In the water i distincly remember being frozen about 4 months ago !

It was awesome.

We made a great friend.

Vélo et kayak, merveilleux moyens (eco friendly, on est suédois ou on ne l’ai pas) de découvrir STHLM.
Et de se faire des amis canard. Joakim le canard mauve.

I’m off to Bretagne, to my oncle’s house to celebrate the 14th of July w/ my family ! it’s gonna be beach, beach, food, and markets 🙂 

But no internet so im sorry if i don’t write back to your nice comments this week ! But i’ll be back soon !!

Yes, i’ll have to go back to work and seriously start on my huge Master dissertation….sooo stressful. But the good news is..I MIGHT have had a job offer on friday…more on that later…

Here’s me and älskling ….not so many pic of him around here but i like this one cause we look like we’re going to prom or something…and since i never had a prom, at least i get a pic 😉 

plus, for once, i feel i look a little bit like a swede 😉 And actually, i’m taking my Swedish Grammar book w/ me on vacation…(everything but my dissertation !)

dress is my last year bday present from älskling, shoes from Besson 

 

and now it starts for real

what a wonderful and kinda unexpected break. The weather was amazing, once again, like a proof that, no, Sverige is not only “polar bears”.

It was 5 days of waking up  very late, eating waffles, raspberry and ice creams way too much, having fika(s), drinking wine,  going to the beach and second hand shops…

down side, i had 3 major headhaches coming from nowwhere, i really need to see a specialist when i get the time.  

Now it’s back to real life, once more, and this time it’s serious. it’s work work work the whole summer 😦  I don’t know when I’ll be able to take vacations again…  It really freaks me out. Plus I still have 2 papers to write and my big dissertation to start on…oups.   

beach

Sunday at the beach by Torning Torso… so lovely. My new shoes hurt my feet so bad the day before i had to wear my other shoes from André, a little “too warm” for the weather !  

weather and Irony

so..monday and tuesday we literally boiled under the sun in Paris, don’t take me wrong det är inte a complain, I LOVE summer. It was sooo nice that dad said “on wednesday I’m taking you (sister, älskling and I) to the beach in Deauville”  awesome ! it’s a 2 hours drive but it’s so worth it the beach is huge and the city is so cute ! so this morning we woke up around 8 to get ready, I put on my bathing suit and a dress, we packed our towels and sun glasses and drove to Deauville…

well…it rained the whole way. once we got there the sky was all grey… and it was cold. then it rained. 😦

But we had a great day anyway, not the lazy tanning day we excpected but still, we had lunch in a creperie, we slept on the beach and tasted the water, we collected seashells, we shopped a little and admired the houses, on the way back we stopped at Honfleur, another city, soo pretty and had hot chocolate (yummy) and watched part of Federrer’s game at Wimbledon. just then the sun showed up 😉

  

it was a cold but really nice day…let’s see tomorrow’s weather..then it’s gonna be real irony.
