After flying back to Sweden from Florida I have for the first time in my life experienced the so called Jetlag… I have always secretly thought some people might exagerate their jetlag issues simply to be able to brag a bit more about their trip. But now when experiencing it myself… Wow I’m so tired.
It’s not just the time difference, it’s the climate too! I am very thankful it has been snowing because I love winter and snow but since I came home I have been freezing constantly. It feels cold even indoors!
I made a youtube video where I am super tired and look like a mess while talking about this. I also show you the big contrast with videos from Florida compared to what things looked like when I came back home. You also get to see a little bit from my home and my cat Patrik says hello.
After uploading the video I have been asked if I am pro-Trump due to my Donald Trump tourist T-shirt. I want to clarify that no I am not pro-Trump (!)

I am finally home again after my trip to Florida and it is cold and snowy outdoors! Quite a big change to the hot weather I have become used to these past weeks… Despite having a wonderful time in America I can’t explain how happy I am to come home. I even cried a few tears when I sat down in our sofa.
Normally I upload a video every thursday but this week it will be on friday (tomorrow). I’m tired of traveling and jetlag and apart from that I wanted to spend time with my parents ♡
The day before we traveled to Florida me and Johan was on something called “The Snowmobile Day” (Snöskoterns dag). It is a day when people interested in snowmobiling visit the stores in their area to drink coffee and eat hamburgers while looking at the snowmobiles (and related attire). Usually there are a lot of great deals to make and apart from that it is cozy to meet and speak with friends.
This year it had started to snow and I was super excited about that. I knew it was far from enough snow to drive and that it would probably melt soon but it gave me such a nice feeling!!
I also got to see the new Ski-Doo Freeride and it looked great. I had to stand on it and pretend to drive it in the store. When there is enough snow I will ask Stefan at Tords Motorservice (my snowmobile dealer) if I can test drive it for real.
Apart from the actual snowmobiles there is such an amount of related attire to look at. Jackets, helmets, glasses, gloves, underwear, bags, sledwraps and so on. Always new inventions and ideas to make your trip more comfortable. I liked this fold-able pellet grill which saves a lot of space.
According to the weather reports it will be snowing this weekend. Perhaps we can take out our snowmobiles and at least drive around in one circle in our backyard…? /Anna Munkhammar
Here comes a #selfie which Johan has been teasing me for (because it looks so I-took-a-selfie-in-the-restroom-ish). It was embarrassing when he saw it and we both started to laugh. BUT, I have no other image from that evening and it is the only time I have had makeup so far.
But what I really want to say is that I have not been able to upload any YouTube video this Thursday because the WiFi at the hotel we are staying at is horrible. Even this little photo was a challenge and took me 5 times to upload…
Nevertheless, with or without internet, I am having a great time in the US and today I was bathing in the sea for about an hour (!).

I thought I should to update you on what is going on with my Florida journey. Last time I wrote I was sad because I had a cold and had not been able to go to the Castle in Ybor. Well, I got better and managed to go to Ybor on Monday!
The Castle was not opened but at least I got to see a little bit of Ybor and that was pretty cool! I will make a specific post about Ybor when I get home.
The next day we drove to Key West through the everglades (stopped to see some alligators) and that is where I am now. I love Key West it is really cool and the sea is very warm!
Ok so here comes a little reminder that things are not great just because you happen to have a wonderful view outside your balcony. I HAVE A COLD.
Yes, I have been waiting for this trip to USA for a year (or a lifetime) and now that I am finally here I have a sore throat that comes and goes and today my nose is killing me. I have bought extra soft napkins in an attempt to spare the skin on my nose tip but I’m quite sure it will peal off.
I know I know it could be worse but I’m so tired and sad and even though I am thankful to be well enough to walk around I can not help to feel disappointed. I just want to feel well and have full energy that’s all.
Already my plan to go to an area in Tampa called Ybor and the nightclub The Castle is ruined because today is the last day possible to go and I’m simply to exhausted.
Just wanted to share with you that things are not great and perfect at all times. No matter how old you get it is though to deal with disappointments ♡ /Anna Munkhammar
Hellaholics har skrivit om mig i deras blogg. De skickade ett meddelande till mig igår och frågade om de kunde låna några bilder från mig och självklart sa jag ja. Du kan se hela deras blogginlägg här.
Jag har varit i kontakt med dem tidigare när posten tappade bort mitt paket och så småningom fick jag 2 ringar. Du kan läsa mer om den historian avsnittet här…
Det enda dåliga med att Hellaholics skrev om mig var att när jag skulle kolla in det i morse märkte jag att de hade några silverringar i avsnittet “new in”… Typiskt, det var en liten en med en ametist som jag råkade köpa…
Jag tror att nu har jag cirka 5 ringar från Hellaholics. Älskar designen på de i silver med stenar! Jag önskar att de kom i ännu mindre storlekar eftersom mina händer är små och då kunde jag ha någon på lillfingret också.
I have already shown you Clearwater Beach in the sunset but now I have also experienced it during the day. Wow it is so nice and the sand is all white. I uploaded an image of the sand on Instagram and two people actually thought it was snow!
I can’t believe this is a winter day when it is much warmer than a summer day at home. I am very sensitive to cold and usually have to wear several layers of different garments but here in Florida I’m walking around with almost nothing. It feels amazing!
Something that has surprised me is that as you can see on the images, we are almost alone at the beach. Sure there are others there too of course but the beach is not overloaded with tourists. In the beginning of the day it is very calm and then later on when the locals get home from work it is a bit more crowded.
Tomorrow we might be going to another beach a bit further away from where we live. That will be interesting. I think it will be a bit more private but that is just a wild guess.
I hope you are having a nice time too wherever you live in the world ♡ /Anna Munkhammar
