Weekend trip – Amsterdam

No Comments Amsterdam

It feels like we’re on a roll right now when it comes to weekend trips. This previous weekend was spent in Stockholm and in the end of April we have a trip to Amsterdam booked in together with two of my high school friends and their husbands. I’ve been in Amsterdam once before for a short visit while on a work trip but that was during winter so it will be nice to pay a visit during spring. Plus it also happens to be a national holiday when we’re there too. On April 30th Queen’s Day (in Dutch; Koninginnedag) is celebrated in Amsterdam which is the city’s biggest street festival. As far as I understand it there will be heaps of people in Amsterdam many of them wearing orange and the city will be filled with different flea markets since Koninginnedag is the one the of the year when the Dutch government permits sales on the street without a permit and without the payment of tax. It will be interesting to say the least and we’re looking forward to our trip.

I miss our old apartment

No Comments Sverige

I do like it here in Göteborg but almost every day I miss our old place in Jönköping. The apartment there was more cosy and a lot brighter. I especially miss  our lovely kitchen with a dishwasher and pretty red tiles, our bedroom, the huge bathroom and the balcony.

Tim Tam Slam

1 Comment Typically Aussie

Something I’ve actually heard about but never tried is this special Aussie way of  eating Tim Tam’s. This ritual goes by many names; the Tim Tam Slam, the Tim Tam Bomb, the Tim Tam Suck and the Tim Tam Explosion but no matter what you call it, the steps are the same.

Fall at your feet

No Comments Sverige

Friday afternoon, possibly the best time of the week. Sitting on the train on my way up to Stockholm  listening to this song – Fall at your feet with Boy & Bear. I got a feeling it will be a good weekend!

Pampering

No Comments Göteborg, Sverige

I love going to the hairdresser. It’s always very relaxing, my own special pampering time. Yesterday I did go and I did enjoy it. I didn’t expect it to take 3 hours though. The hair is still long and blonde but I’m happy with the result. I’ve written before that one of the worst thing about moving I feel is finding your own local hairdresser that you’re happy with. It was the second time I went to Emelie at Götafrizzorna and it was the second time I left happy and satisfied with the result so I think I’ve found mine in Göteborg.
