There one thing I learned from leaving in Europe for 14 years. Four seasons are fun and annoying at times. I’m a tropical girl but when I married my Norwegian husband and went to live with him, that’s when I finally understood the meaning cold. Whenever Filipinos in the Philippines told me how cold it was the other day in the country, I can’t help but smile. Back before I left the Philippines I’m freezing at 20 degrees celcius (or 68 degrees fahrenheit) but here that’s a normal room temperature, so imagine how cold I felt when I stepped out of the Norwegian airport the first time and got welcome by a cold breeze at minus 15 degrees celcius wearing nothing more that a long sleeve top and wind jacket. I was even too stubborn to accept my husband leather jacket because I felt too ashamed for not listening to him and buy thicker clothes. My whole body was numbed by the time I got into a warm shower.
Nowadays, I love and hate winter. I hate all the work of digging the car out of the snow with my husband each time we need to drive (and often, because we live far away from the grocery store). However, winter is also the most beautiful time of the year, especially when snow cover the landscape and create a postcard-esque picture comes to life.
Below is a few pictures I took with my phone while driving.
Side note: they look better in real life.
All the fun. Snowball fights, snow man or simply have a romantic time with your partner.
Here’s a picture I took 2 days ago.
We went out at 6pm and found the fresh fallen snow outside of the garage and I couldn’t help it. I need to imprint it. The one to the right is my husband’s. It looked better than mine even though I did my best to get in his way. 😀
Jho, friend, thanks for inspiring me to post this!
