Swedish weather

“Det finns inget dåligt väder, bara dåliga kläder.”That is a swedish saying which means that there is no bad weather, but only bad clothing.

The winter here can be dark, cold and long. Yet it is the most beautiful season. For me, it was the first time I ever saw snow and to see Stockholm getting transformed to a winter wonderland was a very nice experience.

Yet, there are days that look like this and that was when i preferred to stay in the warmth of my apartment sipping hot coffee.

Snowing ! Next comes the spring when everything is green again and you hear the birds chirping away and the ducks and the swans return to the lakes and the flowers begin to bloom. The days get longer and warmer.

Then comes the summer with the very long days and very short nights. Stockholm is very lively with something happening every single day. It is the perfect time to go out and enjoy the sights that the archipelago has to offer.

Now, it is autumn and it is getting a little colder everyday and it looks  a lot like this. It is like a painting, reds and yellows and orange everywhere.

Well that was my take on the four seasons here. Do not worry about the winter, just get a good jacket and a good pair of boots and you will be OK.
