After a more or less productive Sunday morning we felt the urge to go outside and explore a new area. We spontaneously decided to take the metro to Farsta Strand (took us about 25 min.) and go for a walk around the lake Magelungen.
It was so wonderful! Especially after some busy days it always feels so good to return to nature.. It’s so awesome to live in such a big city which however offers so many beautiful green spots and even lakes close to the city centre! I guess our dream for the future would be to live in such a place where we can have both – the comfort of a city and the opportunity to experience the beauty of nature.
We met some other pedestrians along the way but besides that it was so quiet and very peaceful.
We just walked, talked, sat in silence, watched the turning leaves falling from the trees and I even found a small fly agaric – a small highlight since we don’t have many of them in German forests 🙂
We are very grateful for the opportunity to live here, in Sweden. We especially think of our families when writing that – they both always encourage, help and support us so much in our decisions to travel 🙂
The first month in Stockholm is already over and we feel that time is running. Therefore we will enjoy every little moment of our time in Sweden!
The upcoming week will a busy one for us but we embrace it. Ken found a short-time freelance job as a Compositing Artist. He already started working at “Gangsters Postproduction” and really enjoys it! He will be working until Thursday and I will have my first two exams at the new university this week. We also look forward to our first guests from Germany who will arrive on Wednesday!
If you sometimes don’t feel your best, if you have sorrows or doubts, if you are angry or feel lonely, if you need something to brighten up your mood, but also if not, try to spend some time outside everyday! Enjoy nature, the seasons and everything our mother earth has to offer. I promise it will make you feel better, it will make you feel at home.
Aaaaaand of course, on our way back home we checked out a new supermarket and bought some stuff for dinner to eat while we watched the series “The OA” 🙂
Have a good evening everybody!
You will hear from us,
Anouk & Ken
