The ten days I was in Sweden were really great. It was so nice to have the children around again, to talk to my host mom and to enjoy the snow and the sun.
But my trip didn´t start that well. Unfortunately.
I missed my flight. A nightmare no one wants to experience.
I was there in time, but the woman at the check-in wrote the wrong gate on my ticket. I did not double check it with the information screens, so I was waiting at the wrong gate. And when I realized it, it was already too late.
Luckily I could buy a ticket for the same day. It was expensive, but okay.
On the flight to Riga, where I had a three hour stop, I was so angry about myself. The question, “Why haven´t you checked the screen!?” kept on spinning in my head. But when the swedish coast with all its smal islands appeared in the blue eastern sea, I couldn´t stop smiling.
The first five days the two smaller ones were there as well. Which was great. We have built a snowman, an igloo, we went ice fishing, skiing and made “semla”. It felt so good to have the children around, to play, cuddle and laugh with them.
