I've been feeling a bit nostalgic lately about my life here in Sweden. Maybe it's the beautiful autumn, maybe it's knowing that it's my last autumn here. Anyway, I quite love where I live. So I grabbed my camera and took it with me on a bike ride so I can capture a bit of the place I love. I decided to limit it to just the island where we live, Lidingö. It's sort of U-shaped, and probably about 7 miles from end to end.
I know I need a tripod. Even though it is a pretty boring video and it's the only way I can try to capture this place. I often think of this line by Ralph Waldo Emerson:
"I take this evanescence and lubricity of all objects, which lets them slip through our fingers then when we clutch hardest, to be the most unhandsome part of our condition."

Oh, and the soundtrack is one of my favorite songs - Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

I wish I could come back and visit one more time before you guys move, but sadly, I don't think that will happen. I'm jealous you've been able to live there for the past three years, it's SO pretty there!

Love it! Thanks for giving me a glance into the beautiful world you live in over there! I know you'll miss a lot of wonderful things about Sweden.

Sweden looks awesome. I wish I would have been able to visit.

It looks like a place I would love, too (minus the cold). I told Brian the next place we live better have more walkable areas. Sidewalks and walkways are basically non-existent in Knoxville and there is nothing within walking distance from our house. No wonder there are so many overweight people! :)

I think you captured it perfectly. I especially loved the soundtrack. I felt like I was watching a PBS special.

What a great little window into what makes you love living in Lidingo!!! Nostalgia is so bitter sweet.

Wonderful glimpse of your adorable Swedish island. I can't think of a better place for you to live. It brought back memories of our visits.
