Let me just start this blog by saying Hej everyone! I miss you all so much.
Well, it's now been 5 weeks since I've left the country and has it gone fast or what! For the past week I've been on holidays here in Sweden. However this holiday was only for the students not for the workers. So I had to find my own things to do on my own.
The first thing I did was go ice skating. I loved it. A boy named Vladimir organised it all and I'm so grateful because it was so fun. I wasn't that bad actually, I could sort of keep up with the slow ones. There was this one boy Olof who use to play hockey- so he was doing laps around me. But it was so much fun. We had fika after as well which was really nice.
I also went to Denmark twice, once overnight and once just for the day. Copenhagen is such a beautiful and colourful city. I played the biggest tourist while there and saw pretty much everything to see except the little mermaid which apparently isn't that good anyway.
I also went to a girls place named Mikalah. She lives on a small property farm around two hours out of Lund. It was very interesting seeing a farm here as they are so different from ones in Australia. It is hard to explain how but it is pretty much like the ones out of the movies. The only thing I'm little confused about is, they receive so much rain here, an extreme amount actually and I wonder how it is that the plants don't drown and die. What was really fun was the next day her mum brought us to a heated water park. It was so much fun. There was a slide and rock climbing into a pool, spar, sauna, diving board and heaps of pool toys. Something that is a little different here is you have to have a shower before going into the pool and when you come out. There is also communal showering here which was the most nerve racking thing in the world for me. In Australia it is all private, whereas here it is a big room with no separating walls and just everyone is naked.
I also went to the museum named Kulturen. It was full of Swedish history. Museums here are so much bigger than ones in Australia and more exciting because there are hands on things in them.
I went to the movies these holidays too, to see- the secret life of Walter Milly with a girl named Alma. It was actually pretty funny. Alma came back to mine after and it was great- having some girl time again.
Okej- so some more things I've noticed here in Sweden is with their traffic lights it goes red orange green orange red instead of in Australia where it is red green orange red. People on bikes receive so much respect here, in Australia- we don't want them' yes they are saving the universe but they don't pay rego for the road so why should they ride on them. I'm not finding it weird or different when crossing a road to look the opposite way to Australia, however I am struggling stopping for bikers. Like the other day I went to cross the road and I walked out in front of a biker forgetting they don't stop for you here. There are also quite a few beggars in Lund whereas where I live there are non. I've even been to quite a few cities in Australia- however I've never seen a beggar in Australia. Another thing is you are not considered an adult till 20 I think so to go to a museum it is free =).
Well that is all I can think of so hej då
