Mountains – don’t we all love them? I was 18 the first time I saw the mountains. Raised in Skåne, Sweden, I had never seen anything like it – Grossglockner in Germany. My boyfriend and I went on our first trip together through Europe, by car. These mountains were stunning and we could throw snowballs and watch the sun go down behind those glittering giants. I still remember it – that totally enchanting feeling.
