Östersjöfestivalen – here we come!

1 Comment Sverige

 

It’s week 29 (yes, we Swedes like to talk about our weeks in numbers instead of dates) and that means a big event takes place in my small hometown Karlshamn – Östersjöfestivalen (Karlshamn Baltic Festival). We’re going down and catch up with friends and family and experience this summer event when the streets are filled with around a quarter of a million visitors (the municipality only has about 31 000 residents normally), street performers, food vendors, markets, beer tents and music.

Another thing I plan on doing when we’re in Australia is to eat the prawns I’ve heard so much about. Apparently they’re suppose to be really big and yummy!

You know us

15 Comments Blog stuff

Since we have just over 100 unique visitors every day I’m guessing that some of you return on a regular basis. We appreciate you popping in of course and hope you enjoy what you read. You know quite a lot about us but it’s few of you that leaves a comment and that we know. It’s of course voluntary to leave a comment after reading but it would be fun to know:

Well, I know it’s about five months to go before we go to Australia but I’ve already started to plan stuff I want to do once we’re down. I’ll share them with you in no particular order. Here is no 1.

Sounds nice doesn’t it? Something to look forward to while working all summer.

A living proof nature has a sense of humour?

2 Comments Typically Aussie

In Australia you can find a really strange animal, the platypus. It lays egg like a bird (the only mammal that does that by the way) and looks like a mix between a duck, an otter and a beaver. They’re considered one of the oddest creatures found anywhere in the world – for a good reason.


They can be found only along the eastern coast of Australia all the way from North Queensland down to Tasmania. The platypus is also one of the few poisonous mammals there is, the male platypus has a poisonous spur in the back feet which ban be quite harmful to humans.

Universeum

No Comments Around the World, Europe, Göteborg, Sverige

I ditched work early today to meet up with Erica, Jonas and Emilia instead. They were in town for the day and was going to go to Universeum, the big science center here in Göteborg so I joined them. I never been there before and I’ve wanted to go for a long time plus it was nice to catch up with Erica. I mean after all it was almost 2 weeks since I moved from Jönköping and last saw her. 🙂

Universeum is Scandinavia’s largest science center and it has both an Ocean Aquarium with exotic fishes, sharks and rays as well as native Swedish fishes, an exhibition of poisonous snakes, a rainforest zone as well as a couple of temporary exhibits. I can recommend you to visit if you get a chance, a perfect attraction on a rainy day for example. Read more
