Only in Sweden

Sweden is a safe country. People leave their strollers in the corridors in the building when they don't have space enough in their flats. It happens also outside cafés or shops sometimes. And sometimes with the baby IN THE STROLLER! I must say after almost 8 years in Sweden, I am still chocked that a mother can leave her baby in the stroller to go in a shop... Well well that's not the point of that post. 

The point of that post is a stroller in the corridor of the house where I am living right now. And in that stroller, here's what I saw yesterday. Wonder what the neighbours would say if they saw it...

Stockholm at its best

We had around -16 or -17 a couple of weeks ago and after that we've been back to temperatures around -5 or -8 but this week-end temperatures rose to come close to 0 and a lot of people went out to enjoy the sun and the nice weather. So did I.

Went to a walk... And had a pretty amazing day. The lake Mälaren is still frozen so I actually walked on water. ;)

Got the keys to a flat where I am going to stay for the next two weeks. It's a bit annoying to come in in an empty flat but exciting at the same time. I only had a big luggage and a beauty case and as you can see, it's enough to spread all over the place.

After an hour or so, the place looks much better. No?


GIFF stands for the Göteborg International Film Festival and is one of my highlights during the year in Göteborg. This year I could only attend in the week-ends since I was in Stockholm during the week but I still manago to see five films each week-end. Not too bad, uh?

A mix of French, American, Chinese, Finnish, Swedish and Russo-German movies. Quite an interesting mix and that's exactly what I like about the festival: the opportunity to see films I wouldn't see otherwise (nor even hear of) since they won't be distributed here.

Among the people I connect with on Twitter, many love the iPhone app Instagram. I started using it recently and I must say I am sold too.

The app takes square pictures, like the format of a polaroid but without the white border. After that you can apply some filters that make the pictures look like it was taken many years ago. Like in the 70's for instance. You know how your childhood pics look like? Like that.

When uploading your pictures to your instagram feed you can also choose to upload them on Facebook and/or Twitter. So I did.

My good friend (and good photographer) Fanny asked me if i was doing a 365. That's a kind of project where you upload one picture a day dor a year. I hadn't thought of that but that's actually a good idea. Since I've just moved to Stockholm and started a new job, I tought that would be a good thing to share with my friends a bit of my new life.

If you are friend with me on Facebook, you can find these pictures in a specific instagram-album. If you want to find me directly in the instagram app my pseudo is simply lorrainedaum. Otherwise I will try to make a weekly summary here on the blog.

Here are some of the first pics. Enjoy!
