3 months in Sweden

This week I completed three months living in Sweden and I can’t believe how fast time went by. However, the most interesting part is not how time flies, but how much I have changed my daily basis and my behavior in the last months since I got here. Not only I do different things, there’s also somethings that I don’t do anymore. So, let me make a list of these things so it gets easier for you.

1) 3 months riding a bike every single day

Good for my body, good for the planet.

2) 3 months without getting inside a car


If you have a bike, you don’t need to go inside a car.
Besides, here in Uppsala everything is so close that you can walk everywhere.

3) 3 months recycling my garbage
Makes me feel good about taking care of the planet. (#Snapsave by the way hehe)

4) 3 months without sweating because of the weather

Never hot enought for me to sweat just because of the weather, I need to do some exercise to get that.
It’s not always super cold, but try to compare the Swedish weather with the Brazilian hehe

5) 3 months that I walk on the streets at night and feel safe
Not a very common feeling in Brazil (generally), but here, I never worry if I’m coming home late.

More to come in the next months…

    Hi Marina,
    I’m Amani, and I’m searching for a scholarship in Sweden to get to know new culture and new people, but I don’t know how to apply. So, would you please tell me the process of application and also let me know how is life and people in Sweden?
    Thank you

    Marina, muito legal saber como está a sua vida por aí, aproveito para dizer que o que eu mais gostei na viagem que fiz foi, justamente, a segurança, poder andar a noite na rua e se sentir segura não tem preço! Curta muiiiitoooo, beijo.
