Picture Diary from Sweden
I have had so much fun taking pictures of everything in Sweden and on the weekends I am normally pretty busy and find it hard to find time to do a blog post, so I have come up with a perfect solution – a Picture Diary! I think that this will be a really fun and easy way to show everyone what I have been up to all day and give more insight to typical everyday Swedish lifestyle. I will try to do this more often if you guys like it, but for now enjoy!
Frukost (breakfast) – Yogurt, my homemade muesli, and a banana. This is basically what I eat every single morning, with lemon juice and a cup of coffee (Not pictured).

This is an example of what my host family eats for breakfast. You can see butter, mayo, salami, cheese, cucumber, hardboiled egg, and homemade bread. In America this would appear to be lunch, but here Sweden this is what a typical breakfast looks like.
After Breakfast it was off to the gym for a nice work out. This is one of the many different rooms at my gym and I was lucky enough to have it all to myself.
After the gym I walked over to the library, got a few books, and picked out a movie to watch with the fam tonight. Here is a glispe inside the awesome library. It was hard to take a picture because everyone was looking at me like I was crazy, but I did it for the blog. Your welcome guys.
- As I was walking home from the library I passed through the market. Every Wednesday and Saturday there is a big market in the middle of town. They sell foods, clothes, jewelry, flowers, you know it. However, right now it is not all that good because it is winter, but when summer comes the market becomes packed with people and huts.
At around 1 I came home and had lunch – porridge! It is basically oatmeal with milk and Lingonberrys on top. Super yummy and easy to make.
- In the afternoon I had he pleasure of going to a play with Bea, Mur Mur, and Douglas. It was super fun and the theater itself was gorgeous. Best part was the play was in English, so I could actually understand what the heck was going on!
Dinner was an AMAZING vegan curry soup. Filled with tons of veggies. I was in heaven and am so grateful to have such a great chef for a host mom.
After dinner we are going to relax and watch a Swedish song competition show or something like that. It sounds similar to American Idol, expect they are competing based off of their original songs, rather than their voices. Then it is off to bed.
Tomorrow it is suppose to rain, so bye bye snow! Hope everyone has a good rest of their day.
