Hello again everyone! I am back from my weekend getaway – healthy as a clam still! My host family all appear to be getting better as well, so hopefully I am in the clear now.
I had a super fun weekend with my friends in Goteborg as you can see. Next time I am having everyone come to Varberg which should be loads of fun. I am really starting to love the cities in Sweden. Goteborg for its amazing shopping, great food, stunning buildings, interesting museums, fun night life, and just overall busy big city feel all while still feeling totally safe. Even when walking around late last night I never once felt unsafe. Everyone there is so nice and police are everywhere to make sure nothing bad happens. The lack of cars is also nice because there is no need to worry about drunk driving or any of that. Varberg has a completely different feel then Goteborg with its cobble stone streets, cute boutiques, bike paths, breathtaking fortress, and beautiful view of the sea. It gives a much more relaxing, quaint feel – like living in a permanent vacation almost.
I got back to Varberg in the afternoon today, went for a quick run, and now Bea and are going to do a little cooking. We plan to make “Energy Balls” which consist of blended dried fruits and nuts and a quinoa salad for dinner. Not much planned for the rest of the week. It is officially Spring here I have decided. The weather forecast for the next 10 days is about 6C with light showers. Hopefully this means we will have a early and long summer here in Sweden!
Swedish Word of the Day: Slut – (Sl-oot) This is another one of those tricky Swedish Words that you think may be the same in English, but really means something completely different. In this case the word slut in Swedish actually just means “The End”.
