Borlänge / Söderhamn - Heading north, the mountains are calling

BORLÄNGE

Before our journey to northern Sweden could begin we had to make a pit stop in Borlänge. Our hometown. We heard rumors that there was insane amounts of gold in the forrest, mushroom gold.

 The car filled to the brim. I have admit that decorative pillows and light strands does not belong to what you would call necessities on a road trip but they adds that luxorious fluffiness that at least makes me happier so I had to bring them.

SÖDERHAMN

First stop of the trip got a bit random. Since it had gotten so late and after failing with the first spot that looked promising on the map that turned out to be the spot for the yearly village summer party and people were singing kareoke under the sky we finally found this turning area a bit outside Söderhamn.

I love waking up and having nature just outside. Pack up, move on, like the little gypsy I often feel like. Next up on our slightly unplanned plan was Sundsvall, to visit my grandparents just quickly.  

This is only the beginning of the trip. I can't wait to show you everything! It's really been an amazing trip.💙
