The last day of summer

Today I went into town and hang out with my boyfriend. The newspaper said that today will be the last really warm day and that we can expect the temperature to drop to 10 degrees Celsius. Puurrr, cold! We decided that today was a day to be outside and enjoy the last sun we can get before the dark winter comes ūüėČ

We visited Skansen, which is one of the places you should visit when you come to Stockholm. It is like a zoo almost, with lots of Nordic animals and other animals too, and also a place where you can see how people used to live in Sweden in the old days. ¬†Don¬īt forget to visit the bakery and by something sweet to yourself! My favorite is a kind of bun filled with apple sauce. Yummy! Skansen never gets boring, even though I have been there a hundred times by know.

In order to get to Skansen we took the ferry from Slussen over to Djurgården. It is a nice but short trip by boat! Much nicer than taking the trams that are stuffed with people.

Then after Skansen and all the cute animals we walked in town and ate lunch/dinner at a placed that did these great hamburgers with lots of vegetables and cheese and bacon on them. I ended the day with going to the choir practice that I have started again with  since there is no longer any IB to think about.

Malmk√∂ping – The rolling museum and a second home

Malmköping 1

I might have told you once or twice about my interest in trams and my involvement in the tramway museum in Malmköping.  Anyway, this weekend I visited Malmköping since we had our annual junior camp-reunion. We had a blast! Around 55 people were active during these two days, since Saturday was a day with extra activities to celebrate the annual Day of Trams. Not only did we offer tours with the trams, we also had two veteran buses that was driving people around Malmköping. Everyone helped with what there skills could offer. Most of the children from the junior camp, where I am a leader, sold tickets on board and guided our guests. I do that too, but I am also responsible for the security on the trams. Then we have of course the people driving the trams and buses, technicians fixing old trams and people cooking food for us. We are like a big family and everyone feel welcome.

We do not only work all day long, we also have a lot of fun. By looking at the picture to the left, showing my boyfriend, may give you a hint of all the crazy stuff that happens.

I can’t say that I am a huge fan of trams, but I enjoy being in Malmk√∂ping and working with trams. Each day I learn something new and my interest is growing. It is no common for girls, especially young girls, to have a hobby that includes trams. The most common member of the Swedish tramway society is typical a man 60+. So we can need as many young people we can find. Therefor is the junior camp so important and I have been a part of them since I was 12 years old. And now I see Malmk√∂ping as a second home almost. It is not at all weird that Malmk√∂ping feels like home since often whole families are active. My sister and brother are for example also active.

At midsummer we take a tram out on the track and then we eat herring and strawberries.

Weddings can be arranged to. Why have a car when you can go by tram to your ceremony?

A computer = I’m Back

Hi, everyone!

It has gone three month since my last post…..shame on me! However, I have been without a computer since I had to give back my wonderful Macbook to my high school. It was a sad moment, but when thinking back I now know that I had no need of the computer during the summer. I have had time to focus on activities that do not include a computer.

Hopefully I will be back for good now…I just need to find that sparkle to help me write. There should not be any problem, the motivation is already there!

This autumn college starts for me and I am so excited and nervous xD 2 more weeks of the summer and then it all starts.

See you soon!
