Sweden's rich forests

I visited Sweden for the first time in a long time and was relieved from the bottom of my heart by the mild climate.

On the way from the airport to my house, I gazed out at the same calm summer meadow scenery from the car window, relaxing my mind and body once again.

As a side note, I had stayed in Dubai for a few days before going to Sweden, so I was thrilled to move from Dubai, where the humidity was high and the temperature was 40°C, to Sweden, where the temperature was a comfortable 20°C. The temperature difference is 20°C.

Arriving in Sweden, Fika is happy to be reunited with her family.

While we were talking about various things, I heard from my mother-in-law that there were a lot of blueberries in the forest near our house this year, and I couldn't stand still.

go pick blueberries

That evening, I immediately grabbed three buckets and went to the nearby forest with my husband and mother-in-law.

Even though it's evening, it's still bright in the Swedish summer, so there's no sign of the sun setting yet.

The town of Trollhattan, where my parents live, is located in the south of Sweden, so the sun sets around 10pm in the summer. In northern Lapland, the sun never sets during the midnight sun.

In Stockholm, the capital, and Gothenburg, the second city, the sun sets around 10pm, just like in Trollhattan.
