New Year’s Eve

Here are two of my dearest Swedish friends I met while being an exchange student at Örebro University. We figured this was the first time since 2011 that the three of us were hanging out together at the same time. It's great being able to live in Sweden again in Lund so that I can see them more often.

This is the Sauna, which we did use. Swedes love sauna's - almost as much as Finns. What we did was go in the sauna and then we walked onto the ice and went into the water where the ice had been cut out. We repeated this several times. Ice water is every bit as they say. The worst part though was probably walking barefoot across the snow and ice. At the end of the night though, I was surprised, truly surprised by how refreshing I felt afterwards.

This lake was just down the hill from the cabin we stayed at. It was for the most part completely frozen over and the ice was thick enough to walk over without falling through. I remember the first time I came to Sweden in the winter, I was an exchange student at Örebro University, in Örebro, which is West of Stockholm. I had never seen such large lakes completely frozen over before in my life. It really surprised me to see them this way.

It was so good to see some proper winter. Driving in, the trees were laden with snow and it was beautiful.

Here are some of my crazy Swedish friends bringing stuff into the cabin we stayed at for the night. The cabin was located in the Hallsberg/Örebro area in Sweden.
