Summer Holidays in Sweden (Sommar och Sol)

I was unsuccessful in landing a summer job or a summer internship, but I decided to spend my summer in Lund. As an Indian summer for me is to avoid sun as much as you can but not in Sweden. Summer in Sweden is generally raining with some good sunny days (according to Swedish people) but not this time. This was one of the best summers people have ever seen here. It was a perfect time to do outdoor activities with sunlight from 4 in the morning till 23 in the evening.

I spent most of my days playing beach volleyball, going to beaches, treks and gym. If the weather is in your favour, there are plenty of things around Lund to enjoy. If you enjoy trekking in forest Söderåsen National Park is the place to visit. You can easily reach röstånga by train or bus and then start your trek. The park has beautiful lakes where you can go and swim or just relax.

Another beautiful place to visit is sandhammaren beach. If you are a beach person and got bored of visiting Loma beach again and again this is the place you can go. It’s a beautiful big white sand beach and a lot less crowded. On your way to the beach you can also visit Ale’s Stones  which is a ship like structure made of stones which is around 1400 years old. You can also enjoy paragliding here.

There are plenty more places to explore in Skane such as Ven island, Falsterbo strand,  Stenshuvud etc.

This summer I was also invited by my Swedish friend Michael to spend a week with his family in Kode. I will share my experience of Swedish hospitality in my next post.

Till then good bye have fun.

Note : For new incoming students pack your warm clothes because Winter is Coming…

If you want to know about any specific topic please comment and I will try to write about that.

Thank you.
