DORIS FIRST TIME IN SWEDEN

 
So I've been the worst at updating the blog. Life kind of just got in the way...
Anyway I thought I would write a little about Doris first visit to Sweden! It's already 5 months ago but better late then never right!?!
 
We left on a friday together with Chris parents and it was a day filled with a lot of firsts for Doris. Doris first flight. Doris first time in Sweden. Doris first time on a ferry. Doris first time on an island. Doris first time meeting my dad, siblings and my grandmother. All thou it was a lot of new things Doris was in the best mood all weekend. I think she likes Sweden! 
 
Doris was so easy to travel with! She smiled and flirted with everyone! In the plane she only cried once when we were landing and at that point even my ears was hurting. Once we landed in Gothenburg we picked up our rental cars and drew to the ferry to Öckerö. For me the ferry ride across the water is such a childhood memorie and it is obligatory to go out of the car to sit and watch the ocean! 
 
I rented an apartment on the top floor of an house at until for us to stay at together with my Dad and his family & Doris great grandmother. The place was great and I would recommend it to anyone who might be thinking of a vacation here! You can find it on here on Airbnb. This is the recommend from our balcony.
 
Doris view very safe with grandpa Roger, uncle Jack and felt Maja! And for the first time since Doris was born me & Chris did something together just the two of us as my dad and auntie babysat for an hour. 
 
We went for a walk on the cliffs and enjoyed the salty sea! There is something so siblings about the sea and I really miss living close to it! I hope we will one day again in the future! For being September we were so luck with the weather as it was sunny and around 18°C all weekend! 
 
After a long day we were all exhausted and once Doris peaceful fell asleep ater a few hours of fussing she finally slept 4 in the morning. then however she did not want to go back to sleep so we let her lay in between us and after another hour or so she fell back asleep. The next morning was the morning of Doris baptism! I'll let you know more about that tomorrow!

BERENBOS

 
Yesterday me and Doris went for a lovely two hour walk by Berenbos here in Kerkrade. The nature around here is amazing! First we walked in the forest but after the stroller almost fell over i walked back and went for the small roads around it instead. On the way back we saw a bunch of sheeps. One of them really seems to like Doris but she was not impressed. So far the only animal she liked was a fluffy cat that made her smile very big! Such a shame i'm allergic otherwise we would get a cat ASAP after that reaction. 
 
 
Igår var jag och Doris på en härlig två timmars promenad vid Berenbos här i Kerkrade. Naturen här är fantastiskt! Först gick vi i skogen, men efter vagnen nästan föll över jag gick tillbaka och följde de små vägarna genom fälten istället. På vägen tillbaka såg vi ett gäng får. En av dem verkade verkligen gilla Doris men hon var inte imponerad. Hittills den enda djur hon tyckt om  en fluffig katt som fick henne att skratta högt! Så synd att jag är allergisk annars skulle vi skaffa en katt ASAP efter denna reaktion.

MALLORCA COUNT DOWN

 
In less than 3 weeks we are going to Mallorca and I can't wait! We never really had any vacation together this summer as the 2 weeks that Chris had off we had so much to arrange with the move. So it's been something we been longing for all summer this week at Mallorca!
 
We are going to stay at VILLA STATION in a town called Ses Salines in the south east of the island. The hotel is an old train station and it's such a beautiful place! We stayed there for 2 nights last summer and completely fell in love with it. It's the sort of place I could se my self getting married in! This time we will stay in the apartment on the bottom floor that has it's own kitchen, living room and outside space. You have to take the car to the beach but the house has it's own pool and the beach is only 15 min driving so that's not a problem. I really can't wait! 
 
 
Om mindre än 3 veckor ska vi åka till Mallorca och jag längtar som bara den! Vi har knappt haft någon semester tillsammans denna sommar då Chris 2 semesterveckor gick bort med flytten... Så vi har gått och räknat ner hela sommaren tills denna vecka på Mallorca!
 
Vi kommer att bo på VILLA STATION  i en staden Ses Salines på den sydöstra delen av ön. Hotellet är en gammal järnvägsstationen och det är en så vacker plats! Vi bodde där 2 nätter förra sommaren och blev helt förälskade i stället. Det är en sådan plats som jag kunde se mig själv att gifta sig på. Denna gång vi kommer att bo i lägenheten på bottenvåningen som har ett eget kök, vardagsrum och uteplats. Du måste ta bilen till stranden men huset har en egen pool och stranden ligger bara en kvart bort så det är inte ett problem. Som jag längtar!
