lake sunday italy hygge dog hug

You know what they say; a Sunday well spent brings a week of content.

Well, last Sunday my little family had a road trip to a nearby lake in Colico, a city in the province of Lecco, Lombardy in the north of Italy. It was the perfect place to pause and breath, and such a great way to end the week. I love going to one of the many lakes nearby, it always gives me a Scandinavian feeling and makes me feel like home.

What do you think? Doesn’t it look like a beautiful, calm place to have a wander?

My boyfriend recently purchased a drone, so we were testing it out. Thinking about making it our new aim to capture one moment with the drone each weekend for 2019… It would be a nice way to cherish these memories together.

The blog is intended to share her knowledge and love for Scandinavia; touching upon everything from interiors, design, lifestyle, travel to hygge. A place where you can get inspired to find that Scandinavian feeling yourself, no matter where in the world you are.
