Sometimes, the city life gets a bit wearisome. Too many people, too little space..What suits better then, than to take a glimpse into the life of blogger Jonna Jinton. She’s the 21 year old city girl who decided to leave town and move to the remote far Northern Sweden countryside. She found herself a new place – an old cottage – in the midst of the Northern Sweden wilderness: in a very tiny village surrounded by beautiful natural scenery. I think her activities and whereabouts actually are interesting, liberating, and calming. She chops wood and struggles to keep her house warm, takes care of her property – and no, she’s not into that 50’s housewife glamour and cupcakes – she works in the local grocery shop and simply enjoys the changing of the seasons and the earty life in the outback countyside.
Every now and then she visits Grandma and Grandpa for a fika (that’s quite simply a cup of coffee and 7 cookies) and you’d guess they live next door, but it’s actually approx 40 miles of winding roads (and that’s no distance to speak of, in the wilderness!). Jonna Jinton has now the chance to get a scholarship for being such a nice representative of the district she lives in. I think she and her blog without doubt deserves this price (if you do too, the pic below will take you to the voting form). Jonna and her cottage. It’s a miracle she’s managed through the lengthy winter up there! :)
Update: In this post Jonna has a collection of pictures from her house!
