It’s no secret I love winter and hate summer. The people at my office have declared me a vampire on more than one occasion; give me cold, dark days and lots of snow over cancer-causing sun beams and sweat. While enjoying a nice bbq over the weekend at my brother’s house, I ended up with 11 bites mosquito around my ankles and feet, even after spraying a ton of bug spray on myself. I really prefer snow. I love winter. And I love Google Earth. When the two collide, I end up in northern Sweden, wishing I could beam myself there.
I will live here, please and thank you.
Especially because the neighborhood is inhabited by adorable, tiny Swedish children pulling sleds.
Google Earth is full of magical little quirks, including this portion of lake Torneträsk at the tippy top of Sweden’s border, where you can WALK ON WATER. Apparently the whole lake freezes over in the winter, making it a giant, plush field of snow bordered by rolling hills.
I “spun” around and caught sight of this creepy stranger on a snow mobile, trailing me. Don’t think I didn’t have four consecutive heart attacks upon seeing this. It’s something straight out of a Jo Nesbø thriller.
What about you? Are you over summer like me?
