iPhone Bilderna

Just some (okay, when I say some you know I mean many) pictures taken from my iPhone over this past month! These are pictures from my trip in Europe with my mom, along with the time after the trip spent in Gällivare and Piteå! Of course, you may know that I have done many separate posts about my time in Europe with my mom, but these are some fun pictures and food pictures! I’ll try to keep it in order.. Stockholm–>Budapest–>Vienna–>Krakow–>Stockholm–>Gällivare–>Piteå–>Gällivare. Not confusing at all right?

I spent the weekend in Piteå with friends of my host parents, because my host family attended a family wedding in Stockholm for the weekend! The people I stayed with were super nice and they have a wonderful little cabin-house outside of Piteå that I was invited to stay in. Piteå is the sunniest city in the north (located on the coast), and while I was there it rained everyday in Gällivare. We had nice weather and sunshine in Piteå.

June 6th is Sweden’s national day. This isn’t much of a celebration. They don’t light off fireworks and dress in the country’s colors, like we do in America for the 4th of July. It is low key and “lagom” as in just right or not too much, not too little. Everyone says midsummer is more of a Swedish celebration than the national day is. There was still this small gathering in Piteå however!

And lastly, a picture from Monday. Celine, the other exchange student from Germany and I ate some ice cream. It was a pick-me-up ice cream since we had a sad day. We had our last day of class ever in Media. We literally have no more classes at all this week. I didn’t even know it was our last class, so it hit me by surprise. At the end when we were talking about the graduation for the year 3’s on Friday and then about next year I started to get a little teary-eyed. When we decided we had nothing else to talk about with our mentor, we were free to go home. We gathered to check the bus times and I was getting really teary.. Julia asked if I was crying and then I just started.. Hugs were given and tears were shed. I’m really not that much of an emotional person, and couldn’t tell you the last time I cried (well now I can).

I’m not even sure why I cried, it was just sad to think school is over. How can one school year go by so fast, in the blink of an eye!! I had so much fun with my class and got to experience so many cool new things, stuff I’ll never forget! It’s crazy because I will see all of my close friends from school still for a few days before I do leave, I wasn’t crying because I won’t see my friends again, because I still have time! It was just the thought that it’s so close to the real end and school has ended.

Anyways, I have under 2 weeks until I take the train south to go on my Eurotour. The time really does fly. I don’t want to leave, hell no I really don’t. But it’s not a choice to stay any longer unfortunately. I have to spend my time wisely! It’s not the end yet, but I just want to say I really enjoyed my year here and I wouldn’t change a thing about it. I have absolutely fallen in love with Gällivare and Sweden as a whole. Everyone who lives here, realize how nice you have it and that this town really is beautiful! I already know I’m going to miss it so much.
