Sweden, My Love: leaving my second home

Here I am writing about my impressions on my first trip to Sweden with my boyfriend Matt, which occurred between end of February and beginning of March 2015. We stayed in the county of Skåne (Scania): Malmö, Skurup and the surroundings; while also visiting Copenhagen in Denmark.

Day 10 – Departure

My last hours in Skurup were as sombre as the sky.

In the backseat of our hostess’s car, still groggy with sleep, I stared hard for the last time at the green fields contoured with trees. After 10 days, this scenery should have become boring but in reality I wasn’t yet tired of it. I wanted to take it in as much as I could because I knew I wouldn’t find its exact replica back in Malta.

The weather was once again cloudy but I didn’t care too much because I knew that we were going to travel by car. During breakfast I was told of the plan for the day: a visit to Denmark’s National Aquarium in Kastrup and then a quick sightseeing trip and lunch in the heart of Copenhagen.

Farmor was coming with us, hence our first stop was in Malmö. Matt and I had a brief discussion on who was supposed to sit in the middle of the back seat – I thought it would be too awkward for me to sit very close to Farmor. In the end I won the debate and a scowling Matt had to sit in the middle, sandwiched between me and his grandma, for all the trip. All cramped inside our hosts’ electric car, we set off towards the Öresund bridge.
