This week I was able to participate in some pretty cool stuff. On Wednesday night, I photographed an event for Olympic gold medalist, Marcus Hellner, who lives here in Gällivare. Friday night, Celine (the other exchange student in my town) and I went on a guided tour in the LKAB mine. Then this weekend (Friday-Sunday), I helped with photographing Lilla VM (Little World Championships) which was a sporting event with 7 different sports. I’m planning on making separate post about those individually sometime in the upcoming future. So yes, I have been quite busy this week, and haven’t been able to post as much on here as I planned on doing. But that is certainly not a bad thing in this case! It was so much fun to be a part of everything and I met some new awesome people too!
Now I am also on sportlov (sports break), a week long break. I think I read something a while ago that back in the day they had sportlov because then they didn’t have to heat the schools for that week. My sportlov seems pretty late compared to all of my other friends in Sweden, I know people who have had it the 2nd week of February, and I am now having it the first week of March. Maybe it’s because now in March the weather here is a little better which makes it great to go skiing and do other outdoor activities.
I have no exact plans for this week, I just know I want to go skiing, sledding, snowmobiling, etc! We might possibly take a trip up north to the mountains, but it’s not for sure yet. Other than that I will just be hanging out, glad we have a little break from school!
Det är allt för nu, men mer kommer snart. Hej då!
