COVERED IN SNOW

Sweden is a mess at the moment, there's no denying it. Every year the north of Sweden and only the north get a lot of snow. But this year, HOLY MOLY, the entire country is covered in snow. I haven't been able to leave my apartment since Monday because of roads being closed down and car accidents everywhere. It's recommended right now that we stay inside and do not get out in traffic if we don't absolutely have to. My classes this week has been postponed so here I am. For those of you that are following me on Instagram, you might have seen my stories. On Tuesday we were supposed to drive over to the island of Öland to finish up on a group project for the course I'm taking at the moment. But as I shared on my story, my car was stuck in the snow and I couldn't get it out. Not until later that night some relatives came over with a shovel and we had to dig my car out. Today I'm gonna try to get myself out of the apartment if the snow and wind calms down a bit. I'm tired of sitting in my couch the entire day. So hopefully it calms down a bit today! 
 
 
Since I took this photo there has been even more snow. When I tried to get to my car on Tuesday morning there was snow up to my knees so there's at least 50cm of snow now and it just keeps on coming. Hopefully I can head out today and take some new photos of the snow, beacuse it is truly beautiful!

Current plans

I've had a VERY hectic last week in my student life. I've decided to drop some courses and today I was finally accepted to some other courses. It's all very complicated and I'm not going to rant about it too much. Something that is way more exciting is that my part of Sweden suddenly turned in to winter wonderland over a night! There's snow EVERYWHERE! Which made me realise that I don't own any winter boots so I strolled around in my sneakers the entire day and my toes were literally wet from the moment I left my apartment until I got back home. I also managed to squeeze in a visit to IKEA (being as Swedish as I can...). But that's not the meaning of this post! I want to talk about my current travel plans!
 
So far I have no plans for the rest of January or for February but in March and April there will be some travel. My friend Olivia and I are planning to go to Brussels in March. Have any of you been there? None of us has been there before so we really want to go! Olivia is not only a good friend but also an experienced traveller. She just got home from a two month backpacking trip through Australia. I might be able to convince her to write a guest post about that haha!
 
After our potential trip to Brussel in March it's time for my mothers 50th birthday in April and she really wants to go somewhere to celebrate. Right now we are thinking about roadtripping to Denmark but we've also discussed Germany, Italy and some other countries in Europe. She's the one to make the final decision so we'll have to wait and see haha. 
 
Do you have any current travel plans? Or something else planned? Tell me in the comments!
 
Last year my family went roadtripping twice in Sweden. Would really like to do Denmark this year!
