Day 116 | Home at last


Today has been by far the most beautiful day in my life. We left the slopes early this morning for our road trip back south to Gothenburg, where we live. The car temperature gauge was on -18*C when we left. There was not a cloud in the sky, just a soft mist hanging on the mountains. Although we didn't have a ton of snow this week, it was still lying about half a meter thick on the ground from the previous week.

Kl├Ąppen, the place where we were at, is not even half way up in Sweden. So I didn't want to know how cold it was all the way north, where there's no sun for 6 weeks of the year, or how much snow they must have there at the moment.

The trip was really beautiful with the perfectly clear skies and the small towns along the way, all covered in a white blanket of snow. The light conditions were also perfect for photography, so I took a lot of photos, because it's not the typical scenery I'm used to in South Africa.

I am glad to be back home though, but sad that there's no snow down here in Gothenburg. Maybe we can expect some for new year.
