Visiting Stockholm

Ok, now there is a new part of the blog. How are you ? You can´t answer but good I hope. Let me introduce you to my visit of Stockholm first. We was in Stockholm last week, to take part of the EVS training. And now you think what is the EVS training, no ?

EVS training is like a meeting, with many young volunteer like me and Jose (but not cool as us) who take part on a EVS project. You know probably that I come from France, and Jose from Portugal. We are here to work for one year in Fjället, taking care of you, kids. So we meet some people  who are doing the same job, but in different cities in Sweden.

Ok, now, let`s talking about Stockholm. First, it`s a very beautiful city, maybe one of the most beautiful that I`ve visit. Some beautiful building, and an old architecture in couple with modernity.

After that, I visited the archipelago close to Gothemburg, Bränno and Björkö, this was my first contact with the snow in Sweden. It was really really cold, more than gothemburg, but very quiet and beautiful. People here are a little different then the ones in Gothemburg, it seems they live like a small community. Find a nice point of you, I don`t remember the name so sorry.

After in Fjället, during the girls night of Wednesday, we had  the luck of have a lunch prepared by Elin. It was chicken cooked with two different sauce, one based on pepper, and another one based on cream. It was really good and the chicken was perfectly cooked.

Portugese day

Hej!

This last weeks have been crazy and full of new experiences!

Last week, on Friday I had the Portuguese Day and we had a lot of kids 😀

I did some cookies and they ended in 10 minutes because the kids loved it! They also loved the traditional Portuguese candy called “Flocos de Neve”. In the background, during the opening time, Portuguese music was playing!

It went really good and we all had a good time!

I arrived on the 6th september, I live now in a confortable flat in rannebergen. I think rannebergen is a charming little society, so quiet and so close to nature. This is a luck  to live close to a natural park.  During my first days, I visited Angered and Gothemburg, and discovered so much cool places.

For example, this lake, that can be seen from my windows. Pretty nice and full of animals (Ducks, Birds, Insects, Dogs, Fish)

We came here in the 6th of September and we had this awesome view from the window of our apartment! The flight was long (I went from Porto to Frankfurt and then to Gothenburg) but at least I stayed on the window side during both flights ahaha!

We went to Gothenburg (Göteborg) during the weekend and we were mesmerized by the beauty of the city and the cleanness and the architecture as well!

We got to try and experience the Fika! It’s a tradition here in Sweden, where you socialize while eating something sweet, in our case a Kanelbullar, which is awesome and it tastes like cinnamon!

Also the days here have been very sunny and warm, so it’s improving our expectations a lot!

 

Anyways, we have to go to work now! See you next week!
