Autumn has finally arrived to Sweden. I was never the fall type of girl, I find more pleasure in spring and summer days, I’m in love with winter too, but somehow I never had this close relation with autumn. But I guess the place you are has a big impact on that. Cities are easily becoming grey, boring, depressive, while nature has millions of shades, all those bright colors, the crisp air, the cold bright rays of sun, the sound of falling leafs… Yeah, this is the fall I can fall in love with. Thanks God I’m in Sweden now and I have endless possibilities to spend moment outside in the nature.
We have more and more rainy days here in Stockholm, so it’s time to find some activities for the less sunny moments. Not so long ago, we spent a lovely afternoon in the Bergius Botanic Garden.
Spending peaceful moments in the greenhouse while you hear the sound of raindrops from outside, smell the scents of flowers and all the Tropical and Mediterranean plants are really worth a visit.
There is also the prettiest cafe with comfy seats and perfect light for reading a good book. I’m sure this will be one of my favorite places in winter time.:)

Since we are living here in Stockholm, we are trying to discover something new every weekend.
Usually I love to get inspired before, I check out some recommendations, articles, nice photos, take a look and my Insta or Pinterest. This way I found a beautiful valley, surrounded by mountains, green meadows, lovely red houses, simply dreamy… This place is called Haggvik.
But what if there are two villages in Sweden called Haggvik?!:)
Currently we are spending our 6th day in our new apartment, in a new city of a country we have never lived before.
This is our brand new life with so much new impressions that we are just floating on both marvelous and frightening ambivalent waves of feelings.
Have you ever felt like running away from the monotony and greyness of everydays? Have enough of the people surrounding you, the apathetic faces on the subway or the never ending noise and concrete jungle? Have you ever wanted to fly away to a tiny green island where you can be alone, where you and your thoughts can relax in a small paradise?
I always remember how much I liked the wonderful ethereal landscapes in the movie, Avatar. I was dreaming about living in a planet like that, how it would be to experience all those magical natural creatures.
But you know… time to time when everything is peaceful around me, I’m out in the nature, the sun is shining and I just listen to the sound of my environment, let my eyes wide open, empty my mind… And I just start to see.
Sometimes I feel I’m in a dream.
Especially when I’m sitting in a cafe, sipping my almond latte, reading my book, thinking about what to write about.
Staring the people outside and the ones passing by the cafe. They are all different, they all pass by with a different reason, some to study, some are reading books, someone is meeting with an old friend, or a big group of tourists. But one thing is the same. They all seem to be busy, they all seem to know where are they coming from and where are they going to.
And when I look at me, I’m just the dreamer.
