A trip down memory lane

8 Comments New South Wales (NSW), Sydney

Today, two years ago, was the day when I saw this beauty for the first time. 🙂

It was our first holiday together and we had a great couple of days in Sydney.

A weird bird, still no idea of the name of it. Check out his head! Read more

Treasure every second

2 Comments Sverige

A tragic event today made me think even more about what I wrote earlier this week (HERE). A Russian passenger plane went down shortly after take off. On the plane was the entire Lokomotive ice hockey team on their way to Minsk to open the 2011-2012 season of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). There was 44 people on the plan. Two of them survived. Among the fatalities was former HV71 goalie Stefan Liv. Stefan was one of Sweden’s most talented ice hockey players and a national team member since 2000 and he has helped the Jönköping team HV71 to three national titles in 2004, 2008, and 2010. Since May 2011 he was part of the Russian top team.

It’s sad. It’s tragic. There are really no words to describe it. Even if you don’t know the person it affects you beacause it gives you a slap in the face. A reminder of how fragile life really is. A reminder not to take things for granted. Stefan was only 30 years old and he’s leaving his beautiful wife Anna and two young boys, Herman and Harry, behind. Anna and Stefan got married this summer.  In their wedding photos they look so incredibly happy, so in love. They were suppose to have their whole life ahead of them and in an instant that changed. The happiness turned into sorrow. Our thoughts go out to Anna, the boys, the rest of the family and all Stefan’s friends.

You never know what life has in store for you so please take the time to treasure every second, follow your heart and do what makes you happy.

Early start

No Comments Sverige

I’ll have a super early start tomorrow morning. I have to take a tram at 5am to be at the airport in time. I’m heading to Stockholm for a Nordic Outdoor Lighting Conference for two days and after that the well deserved holiday starts. I sure hope the weather is better in Stockholm than here. In Göteborg it’s windy, rainy and it feels like the autumn has arrived. And just for the record; I don’t approve! 🙂

I better start packing my stuff (how I’ll fit stuff for 5 days in my little bag will be interesting to see). Hopefully I’ll be able to get in bed early tonight and at least get some hours of sleep before I have to get up again. There will be less blogging during the holiday but I’ll be back and update you when I can. Until then – take care!

Love knows no limits…

…and true friendship lasts a lifetime. I’m sure you’ve seen the film clip about Christian the Lion before, if not watch it now! It’s such a lovely story and it always gives me goose bumps.
