If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you’ll probably know: I moved back home to The Netherlands after having an amazing experience in Stockholm.
I came back in the middle of the month, so there were still two lovely weeks in Sweden left. I visited some museums, walked around the city and experienced real cold weather. The last week and a half it has been around -16 degrees Celcius. Brrrrr…
After saying goodbye to my friends from the church I visited, it was time to pack everything up and go back.
Coming home was so nice, seeing my family again and finally hugging Mexy after 5 months. But it took only half a day or so for everything to feel normal again. Soon it seemed to me like I just woke up from the best of dreams. But luckily I have my parents, sister and friend who can pinch me and tell that I really lived there.
I don’t really have pictures of when I got back, but these are the ones from my last days in Stockholm.
The past weeks I’ve shown you the Best of Stockholm and the lovely souvenirs I took home.
And on top of that Swedes are great in decorating houses. We all love those beautiful Scandinavian interior designs, right?
Today I’ve compiled a list of 10 DIY’s to make some of those typical Swedish items to give your house a touch of Scandinavia.
It was sad to say goodbye to the city that has been my home for 5 months, but it was good. The last week I visited several museums, enjoyed the city from a viewpoint and walked it’s streets to say goodbye.
Coming home was something I really looked forward to: hugging my family again, seeing my grandparents and of course hugging, kissing and playing with my ferret Mexy after missing her for 5 months.
Pretty much as soon as I touched ground in The Netherlands, my whole study abroad period seemed like a big nice dream. Everything around me is familiar and I’m used to it, it’s as if I woke up from a 5 month sleep and hit the play button again.
Luckily I have my family who visited Stockholm, so they can pinch me: It wasn’t just a dream, I really lived in Stockholm.
And I have brought some souvenirs back home to remember my time there. Let me show you what I bought to keep the memory alive.
