Here comes the last month of the year, December is here and it’s almost Christmas time.
The weather outside is freezing. Mostly it can be quite challenging to survive the cold weather, the short days, and the dark nights in Sweden.
But to embrace this season, I usually go for long walks, enjoy coffee breaks (Swedish Fika), cuddle up with my cats under a blanket, watch Xmas movies and enjoy a hot cup of tea.
How about you? Are you surviving the cold nights? Are you somewhere warm?
Vaxholm The “Capital of the Archipelago”, as its nicknamed, is one of my favorite places.
One of the best things about the island of Vaxholm is that it is easily walkable. It takes about 30 minutes to cross the island.
I found a true gem called Roddarhuset, a cozy small cafe where you can enjoy art and have amazing food.
On Friday I went to see “Dracula” at the Royal Opera in Stockholm.
The opera is based on Bram Stoker’s classic novel of 1897, and most people know at least the essentials of the story.
It has been filmed a number of times, however, this was the first time the tale has reached the operatic stage, and it is a truly stunning and spectacular, visually and musically.
The Dracula story has been always one of favorite intense love story since I was a kid. The story has indeed changed everything we know about the world’s most famous vampire.
I was so happy and excited as a kid when my boyfriend booked us the tickets and it was a great experience to go together to the royal opera for the first time, but not the last.
Hope you all had a great weekend! XO
