Heart of the Ocean

Igår hade vi äran att få se några renar och en lite älg på väg till min morbrors stuga. Så söta! Jag vill verkligen gå ut ur bilden och ta några bättre bilder, men dom sprang iväg innan jag ens fick en chans. 

Men det var underbart att få se dom. Jag har liksom sett dom hela mina uppväxt men jag blir alltid lika glad av att se dom. 


Yesterday we had a privilege to see reindeers and one baby moose on the way to my uncles cottage. So cute! I wanted to go out of the car and take some pictures but the always ran away before I even had the chance. 

But it was amazing to see them. I have seen them around my entire childhood but I always feel the same happiness everytime I see them.

Min morbrors stuga var egentligen mormor och morfars stuga från början. Jag spenderade mycket tid här med dom när jag var ett litet flickebarn. Det var här som mormor lärde mig att fiska.

Innan dom gick bort så fick min morbror ärva stugan och vi fick ärva deras hus. Och det är i det huset som vi idag bor i. 


My uncle's cottage was originally my grandparents. I have spent a lot of time here with my grandparent when I was a kiddo. It was here my grandmother taught me how to fish.

Before they passed away this place were given to my uncle and we got to take over their house. That is the house we currently are living in.

Varje gång vi systrar umgås så blir vi direkt barn igen, haha! Leker nere på stranden 😂Vem gör ens det i vår ålder? 


When we sisters are around each other we become kids again. haha! Playing down on the beach 😂Who even does that in our age?

Fast än mina systrar inte fiskar själva så är dom alltid ett bra sällskap. Dom gör fisket lite mindre fridfullt men mycket roligare. 


Even if my sister does not like fishing like me, they are great company. Making the experience a little less peaceful but much more fun!

Tog dig! Jag lyckades fiska upp en fisk! Min syster lyckades fånga mig på film medan jag drog upp den. Jag fick riktig panik när jag märkte att abborren var jagad av en gädda som försökte ta den. Abborren var 38 cm men vägde bara 735 gram. 


Got ya! I got myself a big fish! I have a funny video of me catching the thing. The panic I got was real after I noticed that a massive pike tried to steal the perch from me. The perch was 38 cm long but was only 735 grams. 

Självklart var vi tvungna att köpa den töntiga bilden från utställningen 😂/and ofcourse we bought the silly picture after the Exhibition 😂

Det blev bara en snabbvisit till stugan eftersom att vi had biljetter till Titanic Exhibition i Skellefteå. Denna utställning visar riktiga föremål som fanns ombord på antingen på Titanic eller systerskeppen Olympic och Britannia och historien bakom dom. 

Dom berättar även lite mindre kända historier om personer som fanns ombord på Titanic. Deras liv innan, på båten och efter olyckan (om dom överlevde). 

Det var också väldigt många historier om svenskar ombord på Titanics jungfruresa. Det var 123 svenskar ombord och 89 av dom dog under olyckan. Denna utställning gjorde att allt kändes mycket mer verkligt. 

Vi fick också se det rikiga halsbandet som i filmen kallades "Heart of the Ocean". Såklart var ju inte inte historien kring detta halsband samma som historien vi fick se i filmen. Halsbandet har egentligen inte ens samma namn. Det rikiga halsbandet kallas för "The love of the Sea" och ägdes av Kate Phillips. Kate och hennes "pojkvän" som var 20 år äldre än henne (hon var bara 19 år) bestämde sig att rymma till Amerika. Han ville starta ett nytt liv men sin nya kärlek och han lämnade därmed sin fru och sin dotter efter sig. 

Kate överlevde katastofen men Morley dog tyvärr när Titanic gick under. 


It was just a quick visit to the cottage as we had booked tickets to the Titanic Exhibition in Skellefteå. This is an Exhibition which show real artefacts that have been on-board either Titanic or its sister ships Olympic or Britannia and the story behind them. 

They also tell more unknown stories about individuals onboard Titanic. The life before, onboard and after (if they survived.) 

It was a lot of stories about Swedes that were onboard Titanic's maiden voyage. There were around 123 Swedes onboard and 89 of them died in the disaster. This Exhibition really made everything feel more real. 

We also saw the real 'Heart of the Ocean' even if the story surrounding the real neckless was not the same as the made up one in the movie, it did not even have the same name. It is called 'The love of the Sea'. The neckless was owned by a woman called Kate Phillips. She and her 'boyfriend' who was 20 years older than her (she was only 19 years old) decided to run away together to America. He wanted to start a new life with his new found love and left his wife and daughter behind. 

Kate survived the disaster but Morley sadly passed away during the tragic event. 

 

 

Thursday thoughts

I can't wait for the summer to come back again. I am use to either 10 months of winter or 12 months of rain and gray skies, so it is such an amazing though that in just 4 month until it will be hot here agian. Hurray! 

Just booked a bla bla car (best app ever) to go to Jerez this weekend. It will be a long weekend. Off Friday to Tuesday afternoon! Gonna be lovely with a long weekend. I have not slept much lately, so it will be lovely to be able to relax! 

Received a voice message this morning from my Chloe from the other side of the world. Poor thing, I sent her a voice message that was 30+5 min long! That happens when you favorite people are so far away. You only have few times to speak, so when you speak, it is a lot to say! 

Hope you will have a lovely day today! I hope you have sunshine where you are! 

Kisses 

My 2017

The year 2017 is over and I decided to do like everybody else: look back at my 2017. I was actually looking back thinking that I did not do anything really. So I decided to refresh my memory and had a look at all my photo's from this year, and I had forgotten a lot of things, per usual. 

Here is some pictures from my 2017:

Vi decided that I wanted to learn something new. So I decided I wanted to learn how to animate. I decided to not get a new job straight after I finished my contract with Google and learn a new skill. Still very long to go though ;)

Me and Luis took the bus to Manchester from London to see 'one night with the 'Notorious Conor McGregor'. We also got to meet Ariel Helwani, but I look so shit at that picture that I can't publish it anywhere, haha! The night was amazing, but it ended in disaster and Luis ended up in hospital.

Me and Cholo went to a Podcast meet up. We had a good time, but it was not really like we expected it to be. (I really wanna gossip, but I am not gonna! My mom raised me better than that, haha!)

We won a charity lottery and got to see Mumford and sons playing in a church with only 300 people invited. It was such a lovely night!

Now I am here in Spain/Gibraltar and starting a new chapter in life.  And that was my 2017! But I am lying if I am saying that it was a good year, because emotionally it was not at all. And I truly hope that 2018 will be a better year! I hope you had a good year, but I hope your next one will be better. Lots of kisses <3
