Life in Sweden, Snippets of life

A Few Notes On The Fall Equinox This Year

Happy first day of fall!

We had a stroke of luck that stretched for months with an incredible summer, but now Gothenburg is back to its real self with grey sky, rain, and occasional strong gusts of wind.

And so it begins.

Already I was down with a fever as the season was changing, and I can feel that I’m now yearning for nights in, in favor of reading books with cups of tea (and occasional glasses of wine). There’s something comforting about being tucked inside with a book when the wind is howling outside and the rain is spattering against the windows.

But we still get blue skies every now and again. The other day, I went for a run and noticed that the fall colors were starting to creep in. The next day, I dragged H and went out for a walk around the neighborhood, taking photos here and there as we strolled aimlessly.

Things were looking autumnal already.

We live quite close to the sea (and a lake, and woods… basically you can’t go too far away from nature when you live in Sweden), but I never realized how close we were until that day. Gothenburg is quite hilly, and when we got to the top of a little hill in our neighborhood, we could see the sea at a distance.

Sometimes I still can’t belive how quickly things have changed. It feels like it was only a few weeks ago when I wrote about fall in Southampton and my favorite things about this season. And now here I am, a year later, writing this from Gothenburg.

What a crazy year it has been.

    I can feel the cold air seeping in through your photos. I wonder how magical, albeit very cold, Gothenburg will be in winter. In the meantime, enjoy the nature before snow starts to fall!
