More photos of the Swedish countryside to come! Some of the photos from my posts on Sweden are taken from a few of my friends on the trip with me, namely Priscilla and Glenn. Sometimes, my fingers just wouldn’t function in the cold. My next few posts would be solely focused upon Abisko, the tiny town we stayed at. The serenity, peace and beauty is truly remarkable, unlike any I have ever seen before. There is so much snow that it ceases to be a hassle anymore as it becomes part of your daily routine and regime to live with it. And I do love snow so very much.
Amazingly, I survived the cold! We managed to dodge the chilly weekend, which was the week before we arrived when there was an ice blast across the whole of Europe. Temperatures plunged till -35 degrees celsius, and trains were delayed for more than 24 hours. We were considered lucky, but still not lucky enough. It was around -15degrees during the time we were there and apart from my toes and hands, I was rather warm. Despite my attempts to bless them and wearing all the socks I brought at one go, they were still suffering from the brunt of the chill. And my gloves were pretty much useless. Oh well! At least now I am back in London, and slowly stepping my way back to Spring, warmth, short sleeves, and lesser layers!
