Clear view

One of the downside to living close to a busy street in in city is that the windows get really dirty, very quickly. Washing windows isn’t exactly my favourite thing to do but seeing the result makes it worth it. Hopefully it will last, at least for a little bit.

Morning walk

No Comments Göteborg

It was a little bit chilly on my morning walk today but the sun was out and the sky was blue so it has great potential to be a really nice Sunday.

There are signs of spring all over the place now so it won’t be long until it’s all green and lush. I can’t wait!

Busy day

4 Comments Göteborg

A rather grey Saturday here in Göteborg today but it’s been a busy one. We started off the morning meeting up with the AFL team here in Göteborg (the Göteborg Berserkers) for a brekkie and a live screening of the opening game of the 2012 AFL season. Not the most interesting game between the Giants and the Swans but still enjoyable. Simon stayed after the game with the rest of the team since they were going to kick some balls themselves after but I went home instead. I did make a stop on the way though at Löplabbet where I bought myself a pair of running pants. I noticed I’ve been deprived my entire life running in normal trackies. What a difference it was to run in these. So comfy it almost made my jog at Skatås enjoyable. But only almost. 🙂

Löningshelg & solsken

Solen sken över Göteborg idag och det var dags för löning. Självklart att det blir kö till Systemet då, eller?!

Be true to yourself

Australia lost a legend this week. On March 20th the well respected former AFL player Jim Stynes lost his 3 year brave battle to cancer. He was only 45.

 

I’ve always learnt from Jim, but I think the most valuable lessons have been in the last few years. He never ceased to amaze me. An incredible man we have lost too early. – close friend John Lund

Not being Australian I slowly grasped, while speaking to Simon and reading articles and tributes online, what an impact this man has made on not only the Australian Football League but the entire country. He was not just a star footy player he was so much more; an AFL consecutive games record holder, a youth worker, a business man, a Victorian of the year winner, a football club chairman, the first international player to become a Brownlow medallist, a writer and a much loved Irish import.

Interesting trip to Helsinki

No Comments Helsinki

I don’t know where I have my head this week. It’s only Wednesday morning but I’ve had way too many fails so far.  We can start with the fail I had this morning causing me to sit here at Helsinki airport waiting to go home. There is a hour time difference between Sweden and Finland and when I looked at my calender checking the flight time last night I had it in Swedish time meaning an hour earlier than Finish. This resulted in me being at the airport way too early missing out on, what could have been, a nice sleep in. Fail. Read more

Weekend trip – Prague

No Comments Prague

The second weekend trip we have booked for this spring is to Prague in the end of May. I’ve been wanting to go there for ages and after talking about possibly going there this year with my brother and his fiancée we decided to make it reality and booked our flight last week. I’m excited about visiting the capitol of Czech Republic but I need to start investigating what to see and do while we’re there. So far pretty much what’s on my list is to drink Czech beer, which of course is very important but I think we need a bit more on our list. Maybe you can help.

Have you been there and have recommendations on what to see and do?
