Kiruna weekend

No Comments Sverige

I finally got around to writing an update about our weekend in Kiruna. Since Simon was in Göteborg having training during Wednesday and Thursday we thought it was a good idea to fly to Stockholm from there instead of having to drive. It didn’t feel as such a good idea on the Friday morning when the alarm went off at 4.40 am. We quickly packed our stuff and took the bus to the train station where we took the airport shuttle bus to Landvetter airport. Our flight was at 7 am in the morning which meant that we were very early in Arlanda and had a couple of hours to kill before we had our second flight to Kiruna.

Melbourne International Comedy Festival

No Comments Melbourne, Typically Aussie

The annual Melbourne International Comedy Festival (MICF) started today. It’s the third largest international comedy festival in the world (alongside Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Montreal’s Just for Laughs Festival) and the biggest ticketed cultural event in Australia. It is generally regarded as the least commercial and most relaxed of the three major comedy festivals.

MICF was established in 1987 and this year it’s celebrating its 25th anniversary. Each autumn the festival takes over Melbourne with an enormous program of stand-up comedy, cabaret, theatre, street performance, film, television, radio and visual arts. The Melbourne Town Hall has served as the festival hub since the early 1990s, but performances are held in venues throughout the city. Read more

New7Wonders of Nature

No Comments Australia

Uluru and the Great Barrier Reef are two of the 28 finalists that you can vote for in New7Wonders of Nature‘s campaign.

The campaign highlights and celebrates the beauty of our planet, thus fostering greater respect for the earth’s fragile natural equilibrium. The motto for this campaign is: “If we want to save anything, we first need to truly appreciate it” (Bernard Weber, Founder New7Wonders). Because we often only act when we are about to lose something precious that has grown dear to us.

Uluru (Ayers Rock) is one of Australia’s most recognisable natural icons. The world-renowned sandstone formation stands 348 m high above sea level with most of its bulk below the ground, and measures 9.4 km in circumference. Uluru appears to change color as the different light strikes it at different times of the day and year.

The Great Barrier Reef is the planet’s largest coral reef system, with some 3,000 individual reefs and 900 islands stretching for 2,600 km over an area of approximately 344,400 square km. It is the biggest single structure made by living creatures and can be seen from outer space.

One party hour lost!

No Comments Typically Swedish

It’s the last Sunday in March and that means that daylight saving time (or sommartid as we Swedes called it – literally summer time) begins in Sweden. That means we loose an hour of party time at the wedding! But maybe more importantly it means that one step closer to spring and summer, and that the time difference between Sweden and Melbourne now is back to being 9 hours. At least until Australian daylight savings ends in a week (on April 3) and the difference will be 8 hours.
