Home & Garden

It’s Going to be Sweden

After a very long radio silence of soul-searching and wondering what to do next, we have decided that it’s going to be a rental in The Netherlands and a home in Småland Sweden. I’m really excited about this next phase in my life as it’s going to be completely life changing. We’ll have to drive (12 hours) or fly (2 hours) back and forth while renovating the property we are going to buy, and when all is done we need to figure out how we are going to divide our time between The Netherlands and Sweden. I already know that I’m going to enjoy Sweden life more also my job is allowing me to live anywhere as long as I have a good wifi connection. But I’m not sure about Bo yet, it always takes him a wee bit longer to get used to different situations. But we’ll have to wait and see …

We are searching for the right rental property in The Netherlands right now, so once we are settled in we’ll start our house hunt in Sweden. The top image shows the properties I really love.

This is the interior of my favourite property. Although the house is in need of some serious TLC, I still love it. Even the wallpaper and all of the furniture, I could move straight in.

How idyllic to have a stone stove (kakelugn) in every room. I think we’ll have to hurry up as this property is going to be sold in no-time.

So I hope you will enjoy house hunting with me over the next few months. I’ll make sure to document as much as I can over here. It’s going to be busy and crazy and lots of moving but I’m already looking forward to it.

      That’s so sweet of you. If we go for weekends, our friend Hide will look after them and if we go for a few weeks, we’ll take them with us.

    Wauw, dat is een serieuze stap. Maar ik ben er zeker van dat het leven in Zweden je perfect zal bevallen – alleen al door de prachtige natuur.

    Hello…I read a blog or two of yours. You seem like such a busy person. Sweden and the a Netherlands. Wow! You have an exciting life. Maybe I’ll read some more. God bless. I’m a fellow hooker of crochet that is. I feel…. strange when I refer to myself that way but nothing could be truer of me.
