Älska Sverige

I just came back from Farewell party for me. I’m leaving Sweden on next Monday… It has been very hard process about transition. I love Sweden from first day of being here, so I didn’t want to leave at all.

So here I’m sharing some of my highlights….

Where beautiful flowers are everywhere, knows how to care them enjoy them. And I got to live by the sea which is most beautiful area!

And I got to learn how to bake! Swedes are really love to bake, and they love all kinds homemade stuff!

Semla! Its super delicious and fatty, so people eat on fat day which is last day before Lent starts.

I found my gift in baking and cooking! It’s so fun!

I will surely miss meat balls until I come back to Sweden! Chocolate balls as well.

And got to learn how to knit! I’m knit pro now.

I can see what things I’ve learned from being in Sweden. There are much more things I can share but I’ll finish here.
I hope to come back after my MA degree in U.S.A.

BUT I will enjoy my last days here.
Vi ses snart.
