The gang’s all here

I’ve always been obsessed by water, it started when I was really young and sitting in a water tub in our sauna until my fingers looked like raisins and continued with me happily swimming in the cold TorneΓ₯ River while my friends had blue lips and were freezing their asses off. But not me. And it has not stopped. Now it’s the end of winter here up in the north, the snow is melting, and my desire to be in the water is growing with each day. Looking at these photos I even have a hard time imagining that this was my reality a little more than a year ago. It was amazing, warm waters with lots of fish in The Maldives. Riding on fast boats and swimming with sharks and sting rays.

So happy I’ve been there and experienced it, but really, I want to go back too.

There are more of my water photos from the Maldives in my portfolio.

  1. All I can say is WOW, it’s incredible to se so many fish and it id interesting to also see the different types

    It’s official, you are a mermaid 🀣🀣😹

    1. Oh, and I got more fish to show the world. Did some snorkeling in Menjangan Islands and Amed while I was in Bali. And had my camera with me πŸ˜‰

      1. I could only imaging how good that was in general πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ˜‚. What a wonderful time you had in the waters and the beauty of those islands. I am glad that you brought your camera and was able to take pictures of more fish friends and the beautiful marine life that you wrote about in your recent post ,which I’m I am about to read more of πŸ‘πŸ˜†πŸ˜πŸ˜

      2. Thanks again! It’s so long between my posts right now but I’ve cleared up a lot of the things I had to take care of when I got home. Had a tooth removed today, so it’s going along nicely. Or, not. But really, it is! My car is ok for taking road trips as well and my phones are up and running as is the broadband.

    Very good that you got the tooth sorted out, health comes first πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜‡. It is great that all systems are ready to go and you are back in action in your Nordic nest (Sweden) haha πŸ‘πŸ˜‚πŸ˜.

    1. Getting back into action but need time to recuperate too. It takes a lot of energy traveling, especially when most parts of the world have been in lockdown due to … the pandemic and other things are happening constantly.

      1. Absolutely true and wise my friend πŸ’―πŸ™. Traveling does take alot of energy and time, plus many of these other international developments can be overwhelming, so recuperating is a must πŸ€ŸπŸ˜‡πŸ’―.

      2. Oh yes, because contrary to what many people still believe, travel is not the same during a pandemic that it was before. Maybe it’s getting there again, or maybe the pandemic was a bit of a reset for the tourism business. Who knows? Certainly not me πŸ˜‰

      3. Very well said πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜‚. The corona pandemic might be a reset that the tourism industy needed, maybe time will tell πŸ‘πŸ˜†.

        All of those people that arrange flights and issue plane tickets and the politicians who policize these matters need to get a load of this, because they have a habit of introducing measures that make it increasingly difficult or next to impossible for people to move around πŸ˜…πŸ’―

      4. Yes, and here in Sweden everybody seems to be a bit unprepared for travel. The lines at the security in some airports are chaotic because not enough staff at the security, and lots of people have forgot to renew their passports so they can’t travel. Heard there’s a black market for passport appointments at the police stations πŸ˜‰

      5. Whoa travel situation there sounds very hectic and what you have heard about the passport issue is very concerning and does emphasize the overall disarray πŸ˜….

        From the corona to the monkey pox to black market passport appointments at a police stations — what will happen next 🀣🀣.

        It’s something you heard so I understand that it’s not really confirmed, but try your best no to get caught up in any of the black market stuff lol

      6. Hahaha GOOD πŸ’―πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ€£. Now you don’t have to care about any of that πŸ˜†πŸ˜

      7. I know! So thankful for that, and it’s part of my personality, since I knew that the pandemic would end sometime and the countries I like to visit require a validity of the passport of at least 6 months when you enter the country πŸ˜‰

      8. It sure is part of your precious personality βœŒοΈπŸ˜†. I learned something new because I didn’t know that the some countries require a validity of the passsport for a minimum of 6 months; I will definitely keep that in mind πŸ‘πŸ‘.

        I admire how you are navigating the circumstances; these situations can become very hectic and scrambled but you are keeping it together with your diligance and careful planning πŸ’―πŸ€Ÿβ˜ΊοΈ

      9. Yup πŸ€ŸπŸ‘β˜ΊοΈ, in both cases, things are looking up instead of crashing down so keep it up because that is the Swedish way πŸ’™βœŠπŸ˜πŸ˜‚

      10. “Or, it might be the finish way. Which is called β€œsisu”!”

        Hahaha yes that could apply πŸ€”πŸ€”, or, it might be the Helena way which is probably what I really wanted to say but was just being cheeky πŸ˜πŸ˜‰πŸ™ƒπŸ’™

        Tack for the short language lesson πŸ‘πŸ€£

  3. “You’re welcome πŸ˜‰ my mind works in at least three languages so the language lesson just comes blurting of of me.”

    🀣🀣 I know exactly what you mean, and I actually appreciate that alot because it’s interesting πŸ‘β˜ΊοΈ. I haven’t met many people who know more than one language lol

    1. Well my father was so fluent in both Finnish and Swedish so when he became older he didn’t even notice when he switched between the two πŸ˜‰

      1. Hahaha I guess this means he will be absolutely proud of you πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚πŸ˜

        Your winks are interesting πŸ˜„, they actually a make me think πŸ€”πŸ’™πŸ’™

      2. Awwww, I get your point. You are right, in fact too much of anything isn’t good πŸ‘πŸ˜†.

        I hope you find a way to take your mind off of stuff — maybe go for a solo swim πŸŒŠπŸ’¦πŸ–βœŒοΈπŸ˜„

  4. “Well, there can’t be too much swimming 🌊”

    Hahahaa 🀭🀭; looks like you are feeling better already πŸŒŠπŸŸπŸ„β€β™‚πŸŠβ€β™€πŸ˜‚πŸ˜
