  • I can't believe I've ever disliked you. There were moments when I almost hated you. I'm so sorry for that.

    Today, I love you. I love you immensely.

    The sea is not as beautiful anywhere else – well, I'm not sure I would give you the world, but definitely Sweden. The cold, fresh water after a hot, steamy sauna. The glittering waves of summer, turning into a rough fall dark blue sea, becoming a frozen, clear white surface where we go skiing for hours.

    I have difficulties finding that calming sensation of sea anywhere else. At least here in Sweden.

    Oh my lovely North, I promise I will never dislike you like I once did. You give me sea like nobody else.
