Feeling Grey .. Feeling Blue


Jasmine Elnadeem

It doesn’t take a lot to confirm that weather affects your mood, and in Sweden we witness more dark days than the bright ones.

Things has been a little gloomy when you wake up in the morning and see no light.

So it is time to take your vitamin D regularly and hope for the best.

But what else can you do in these days to have a bit of fun?!

Oh baby, I got some tips for you:

1- Take a hike and see all the colored leaves. I actually moved to new place so looking forward to explorer the area around us.

2- Fika and more Fika. Yes Swedes love to have a lot of coffee breaks (fika) but in these days cafes feels more warm and cozy than the rest of the year.

Lunch with Kajsa at LOCALS

3- Mysa time. It means cozy up. You can do that alone or with friends. Light some candles, put some flowers and enjoy a drink or two.

4- Time to go to the museum. Last year I spent a lot of rainy days at different museums. Still there is the ABBA museum which I wish to see this year.

5- Get fit in the gym. More Swedes turn to escape the dark mornings and days by heading to the gym. It is natural to invest some quality time in oneself. Running outside makes no sense so the gym is an ideal place anytime.

Today I’m heading to the gym after work, I will have an early dinner then cozying up in front of TV or maybe I will curl up with a book.

Have a great day y’all! Puss Puss

A Stroll In Copenhagen

I have never been to Denmark before so it was nice to go from Malmö to Copenhagen to stroll a bit, though I’ll definitely hop on two wheels the next time I’m there.

Me and my boyfriend decided to start with visiting the Christiansborg Palace. OMG so impressive, it was extremely wonderful to visit the royal palace. Really very beautiful and luxury palace and the Great Hall is the most imposing room in the palace. This is where you will find the Queen’s tapestries.

After that we went to fika with a friend at The Kompa’ 9 coffee bar on Strædet where we had organic coffee, and some typical danish food. Strange combination but really tasty 🙂

Then we decided to walk more and explorer the city, I really fell in love with the downtown, it feels bigger than Stockholm and much more alive. Hahahaha I want to move there already.

Copenhagen had a very relaxed, welcoming vibe which extended throughout the all aspects of the culture.

A short but very fun trip. But l’m planning for another trip to see more of Copenhagen

Winter is coming .. Sweden

Moving to a new country is a huge move and moving from Egypt to Sweden certainly presents lots of challenges.

Sweden offers a great deal of cultural and lifestyle options to new comers.

In the beginning you will feel that you can do lots in this country till the Swedish winter hits you. A very dark, very cold, yet very cozy, winter.

There are tough days when you will feel homesick, and you just don’t want to go outside. But, the hard lesson to learn is you have to go outside when the weather is nice, because it will be bad again. Find a happy or a dear friend who can ask you for a Fika date.

And who knows, maybe one day you will feel that you belong in Sweden.
