Hey lovely people,

Hope that you all are ready for a great and long weekend.

Personally I’m getting ready to celebrate midsummer with my friends in Stockholm.

As I mentioned before, midsummer is a unique celebration when adults and children come together to picnic in the grass, decorate the midsummer pole, make flower wreaths, play traditional games and dance to music.

But I won’t lie to you or myself, I have been feeling down today, I spent the whole day at home and I feel homesick.

The anxiety and emotional distress which come together because I’m staying away and disconnected from my friends isn’t easy to handle.

Sky Pool – Fairmont where one can enjoy the skyline of Cairo!

I’m trying not to let that prevent me from having good time in Sweden or enjoy traveling to new places.

To overcome such feelings I decided to plan for a trip to visit my best friend.

I will be booking my flight ticket very soon. But now I’m thinking of all the chatting which is waiting for me and the great adventure that awaits the both of us!

Anyway here is a throwback to some favorite moments in Cairo.

Ahh, I wish my every week starts and ends with this the sun above me and the pool in front of me.

I just love the lazy pool days! To lay by the pool, drink lots of water, cocktails and eat fresh fruits. But at this moment I’m laying on couch blogging Hahahaha!!

Talk soon

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.
