As much as I enjoyed not having a car, I must admit it will be really nice to have one again. After being so dependent on my car in the US it feels strange having not driven for over 6 months! Umeå is a very bike friendly city and living downtown we didn't necessarily need one, but with winter fast approaching the thought of walking 30 minutes to school in possibly minus 30 degree (celsius) weather was bone chilling. Also, it will be fabulous to have a car when my family and hopefully friends come to visit!
I see a Swedish road trip in our near future!
Happy Thanksgiving to all my wonderful friends and family! A special thanks to my American partner in crime and her boyfriend who hosted and cooked everything! It was Thanksgiving to a tee with salad, mashed and sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts with carrots, homemade stuffing, biscuits, gravy, Turkey (of course), and apple and pecan pie! It was so delicious I forgot to take pictures after the first course!
