Celebration At Sofiero!

Today we had our big celebration at Sofiero Castle, a little bit north of Helsingborg!! Feeling just a little odd, since I have about two weeks left before I've finished this semester, but at least I could celebrate having sent in my last two papers on the Biblical Interpretations course!!

I met up with Sara, Johanna and Helene in Helsingborg, and it didn't take long before we reached Sofiero - and it was absolutely beautiful!!! A wonderful park, where everything was in full bloom - fantastic to see!! I could have photographed forever, but I tried to restrain myself a bit!!

We walked around for a while, and I really want to back and explore it further, I really liked it!! We found a nice lawn with a view of the ocean for our picnic and really had a lovely time! Just one little thing that wasn't that great, namely the fact that I knew I still have a lot of studying left, and I also knew that I'm gonna have to get up at 4 a.m. tomorrow for Old Testament lectures ... so I couldn't quite relax properly, and I also didn't drink much at all (I think it was two glasses of wine the whole time!) ... which made it a little less fun ... Okay, that sounded horrible, but if I had been able to relax more, I think I would have enjoyed it a bit more ... :) Still, I will be able to relax after the 12th!

I totally enjoyed the day, but the others decided to continue with a BBQ (along with Johanna's fiancé Per) tonight, but I really felt I had to go home. Unfortunately, due to the heat and the wine - and not enough water - I developed a throbbing headache - which I haven't managed to get rid of! That's why this entry will be shorter than I originally intended, but I at least wanted to write something about this day - and also show you some of the photographs! :)
Hopefully, I'll be able to write more about this in another entry, and also show more photos - I'm hoping I might get some photos in the mail from Sara and Helene, who also had their cameras!

Despite the headache - and the not-being-able-to-relax-properly-part of the day, I had a really wonderful time, and I consider myself very lucky to have friends like these to spend time with! (Something I couldn't even have imagined just two years ago!)

Today's Blog Dedication: To Helene, Johanna and Sara - for spending some quality time together! :)
