I am now done with four out of the eight weeks that I have my trainee for. I am at the front desk at a hotel in Stockholm, I will tell you more about it in my next update.
Here are some picture from google of Stockholm, the Capital of Sweden. Stockholm is build up on many small islands, so you are surrounded of water almost all the time. I think Stockholm is very beautful and have a lot of history.
In this clip downbelow you can find some of the most necessary facts about stockholm as well as many very good pictures. I wish you all to watch it, Since so many of you teached me a lot about the US, so now I wanna teach you some, So take your time and watch it.
The Royal family of Sweden, They have no political power of Sweden, they just represent our country.
In the City of Stockholm
A shopping streets, getting ready for winter and the Christmas.
An indoor mall, were we have an Hollister store, and it is identical to the ones in the Us, even the staff have flip-flops and use same opening phrases. In the beggning I thought it was kind of cool, but now when Hollister is getting bigger here, the store concept is getting lame.
One week left in regular school before I start an internship for eight weeks, down in Stockholm, I will be in a reception of a hotel. It is a part of my major to have this and also six weeks in the spring. Everyone in my class will go out and do some sort of an intern. I am looking forward to mine and I am sure it will be great!
When that time comes I will teach you all about Stockholm.
For starters, it is the capital of Sweden!
Until then, some picture of Åre mountain and all the ones surrounded by it.
From the other side of where I stay, but so much more beautiful.
Up here in Åre and the mountain we have got our first snow,
not to stay for so long, but this morning the mountains were white and still are.
Hopefully we can have fall break whitout snow but after that,
the snow is welcome to stay!
These photos if from this morning, Oktober 7th
I have decided to make a USA trip this upcoming summer, hopefully in June directly after I have graduated!!
I`m already looking forward to that!!
I have been home to my parents once since school started in August, I helped them with our new bridge/boating (I dont know what yall call it) but where you can dock a boat. The old one we had at out summerplace got destoyed form last winters ice and storm, so we had to make a new one. My dad have spend most part of his sparetime and summer vacation to make it done, while me and mum have helped out with what we could to best. And today they made it done. Great job!
I have worked some of the weekends up here in Åre, and last weekend we had a big fall marked, and many turist comes here. And one day they had 200 sheeps running thru the town square. It was pretty awesome.
Today I got the real drivers license, I am happy to have it and now it is over with all studying!!
Here we still get snow everyday, almost over entire sweden, not just here up in the north.
My class and our teachers are going on a field trip tomorrow, we are going away 3days, we will go up in the mountains and do some cross country skiing and have a (hopefully) great time! ;) I am going to take some pictures for yall, hopefully they will be good!!
