You know you’ve been in Sweden too long when…

1 Comment Typically Swedish

When a stranger on the street smiles at you, you assume:
a) he is drunk
b) he is insane
c) he’s an American

You take every opportunity to raise an enormous flag in your garden.

The reason you take the ferry to Finland is:

a) duty free vodka
b) duty free beer
c) to party hearty. .. no need to get off the boat in Helsinki, just turn around and do it again on the way back to Sweden.

The train ride from hell

No Comments Sverige

That’s how I like to refer to yesterday’s trip from Jönköping to Stockholm. What should have been a smooth and uneventful trip that should have taken just around 4 hours ended up being a loooong and boring 9.5 hour  trip. The delay was caused by downed electrical wires on the track in two separate places between Norrköping and Mjölby. This caused major delays on all trains between Malmö and Stockholm. For me that meant that I got stuck in Nässjö (only 30 km away from home) 3.5 hours before I finally was on a train heading towards Stockholm. After just one stop we had to switch trains and we ended up on a diverted train heading on a longer route towards Stockholm avoiding the closed tracks. I was finally at the hotel, after battling my way through the taxi queue (people went totally crazy removing other people’s luggage from taxis they considered themselves have the right to get) outside the train station in Stockholm, at just before 2 am this morning.

If you want to read about other screw ups that SJ has done that I’ve written about just have a look HERE and HERE.

I know the problems persisted today too. I really hope it’s all sorted by the time I’m heading home tomorrow arvo. Now time for an early night to catch up on some sleep.

Gör en tidning av din blogg

No Comments Blog stuff

Hittade något riktigt trevligt igår när jag surfade runt (jag hade ju lite tråkigt igår och inte direkt något annat att göra under min långa tågresa). Du kan göra en tidning av din blogg och dina inlägg via en sida som heter Hur smart som helst säger jag och tänkte genast att det skulle vara roligt att göra en av min Anna’s Australia blogg, ett roligt minne.

Så här fungerar det:

  • Du designar omslaget och bestämmer innehållet.
  • Du får en tidning utskriven av ett svenskt professionellt tryckeri i A5 format. Limbunden och beskuren.
  • Du får din leveransadress tryckt på baksidan av tidningen.
  • Tidningen(arna) levereras i ett snyggt emballage.

Antingen väljer du en tidning med 44 sidor för 79 kr eller så väljer du en med 336 sidor för 559 kr.

Still blonde on the inside

Blondes have more fun, at least that’s what they say. I’m putting it all to the ultimate test and desperately hope it’s not true. Cause if it is I’ll have a boring future ahead of me.  😉
