Summer Time - My Family Travels

To me there is only one indication of the real official summer, and that is when I go back to my home country Sweden for summer vacation after schools over. If you let that sink in real quick, you will notice that there are two things that indicates that the summer is coming; That I go to Sweden for vacation, but also, the most important School is over.

Now some people would argue that summer is as a term to only be viewed as metrological science, that when the temperature reaches a certain limit, when certain animals travel here and there, and when this and that happens to nature, then and only then by definition is it summer. Well I would call that narrow minded; also the question asked is of course more personal so arguing is of no point.

To me real summer, since I was small, has never been about the weather. It has always been those almost three long months of nothing but friends and fun. To me summer is another definition for freedom and joy because that is the time of year where I to the fullest extent focus on nothing but my interests and what I enjoy the most. I will also argue that the summer has always included some of my life’s best memories which strengthen my vision of summer even more.

Before I describe the picture and how it is connected to the question asked I want to add one important point to my view for summertime. It is all about freedom. Don’t you have dose times where you feel that everything is perfect, nothings bothering you, that you are simply at the pinnacle of Freedom Mountain? My life is all about that freedom, to be able to live a lifestyle where I don’t have to care about anything, where this euphoric freedom felling flows through my body 24/7. That is what happens during summer for me, every summer I meet that feeling again, every summer at least once I climb up at the peak and breath in that amazing felling.

Now every summer, me and my best friends have this weekly trip to one of my friends summer houses, and we can borrow it from my friends parents.  It is always during this trip that I face this felling that I have an addiction for, it is always for certain that my hunger will be satisfied.  This picture is taken from the latest trip to this summer house and we have a tradition to always BBQ on a little mountain called “Fekke Berget”, a name we gave it due to the traditional association, the picture is taken at that location.

To me there is no other place that can mean as much summer to me as that place. When I see this picture it can bring tears to my eyes due to all the beautiful moments that have taken place there, all the evenings that has ended in legendary stories and all the astonishing memories it has created.

Nothing could ever be more summer than that.
