My reasons for loving Sweden.

Hi there!

I know I've been a terrible blogger for the past weeks, but as I've got no internet connection (I hope this week or maybe next I would have it) and I've been so busy with work and other things... I couldn't post! Fortunately, everytime I have internet, I try to read all your blogs... so maybe I don't leave any comments, but I read the all, promise!

Lots of people asked me why I love Sweden so much; it seems so strange for them how I could love this country and sometimes they don't understand why I want to spend the rest of my life there, "a girl from the south, from a hot country, like you", they said.

Well, here you've got a little explanation (maybe so romantic) about it... 

The clouds, the sky... I know this could be apply to all the world, but everytime I go to the north, I love more and more the sky...

Winter, cold winter, with lots of snow, and coats, and boots, and umbrellas, and everything white...


Spring and summer... TRUE spring and summer, with all around green and alive...


Nature, all the nature you want... almost into the wild.


But at the same time, the city lights...


You can see the wild nature of the fields, but also of the sea... (in this picture: Malmo)


The language, I LOVE how swedish sounds!


The colors; when spring arrives, the colors are so brighter (in the pictures: Stockholm, Uppsala).


The music; I've realized that a big part of the music I love is from Sweden.


Rain, rain, rain, rain...

The buildings: not too small, not too tall... perfect for seeing the landslide and keep the light.


But the truth is so simple: it's my dream since I was 7 years old, since I can remember, since I dream with snow; so don't try to get another explanation.

  1. Qué preciosa entrada, la de hoy!
    Tan romántica, tan sensible...Qué bonito todo.
    Me gusta todo lo que has dicho, pero no he tenido (aún) el placer de disfrutarlo, aunque no está para nada descartado.
    Feliz jueves!!

  2. I've been to Sweden a few times and it is truly nice there. I am from Norway, so it is much of the same weather, though the nature is a bit different :)

  4. Personalmente me parece precisosisima la desolación de los paisajes helados, esos desiertos blancos ¡¡uff!! Y todo lo que comentas me agrada, las ciudades del norte tienen ese punto romántico, pero ten en cuenta que el cambio climático será duro...

    Al principio ver todo nevado es precioso, pero la nieve no deja de ser un impedimento para hacer vida normal, por ejemplo volver cargada del super pisando nieve y hielo no es jauja... Pero todo no iba a ser perfecto, ¿no? Eso sí, no creo que haya sensaciones comparables a llegar a casa muerto de frio y coger una taza de café/chocolate caliente ;)

  7. So no explanation is needed. You have a dream and have to follow it or it will consume you. Dreams a powerful things.
    My advise: do not talk any more, just, jum into it and it will be ok.
    I am back from hospitol, and my operation find!!

  9. jejejeje si que tienes un gran amor! lo importante es que sabes porque te gusta XD
    Yo tengo un amor grande tanto por japón como alemania! y lo gracioso es que odio el clima helado y la gente fria, yo asi los veo a los nordicos, pero al mismo tiempo me atraen!! a mi me gusta como suena el aleman, mi hermana vive allá, amo el futbol de ahi, algunas bandas, etc.

    No tengo un sueño de vivir en determinado país, pero te entiendo un poco.. yo sueño con vivir en europa ^^

    Saludooos

  10. Curiosamente, me parece una explicación bastante realista, son buenas razones para que te guste!, y comprendo perfectamente que se pueda echar de menos el frío, la lluvia, entrar en un local y que se empañen las gafas y te moquee la nariz!!
    Incluso sabiendo que vas a afrontar un invierno oscurísimo y largo, vale la pena!!

    besos y mucha mucha suerte

  14. It looks so gorgeous there, I can understand perfectly why you'd want to live there forever and ever. My best friend is actually from Sweden, and she's always telling me the nicest stories about it! We might even take a trip there next year since her grandma has a house there. I can't wait!

  17. Estuve hace un año en Estocolmo y me alucinó! Desde entonces de enamoré de esa ciudad y volví soñando en que algun dia pasaría una larga temporada viviendo allí, mezcalndome con su cultura, sus gentes, su naturaleza i su frío! jaja
    Que pases un buen finde guapa!
    besos!

  24. I went to Sweden four or five years ago and love it so much! It is my dream to move to Scandinavia... the sky is different and so beautiful. I love the cool weather and the little and colourful buildings. The people are so sweet and the food is so good. I miss Europe!

  27. A veces hay que ver su cuidad desde los ojos de otra persona. Estocolmo es increible pero siempre se piensa en otras lugares, no? Hay que ser asi, creo.

    Soy de estocolmo pero vivá dos años en Barcelona - era la cudiad de mi sueños y sige siendo..dos años despues,cada dia pienso en volver. Y este vez no será por la vida nocturna o por la playa o por las pequenitas calles de Gracia. Sería por la vida, y la gente libre. Y por el café con leche, por cierto.
