Summerburst Festival

1 Comment Göteborg

Last night we booked tickets for the Summerburst Festival in Göteborg in June.  Summerburst is a new electronic music festival first held in Stockholm last year. This year it’s back and expanding to Göteborg as well. Deadmouse, Axwell, Avicii and Calvin Harris are among the DJs confirmed to play at the festival. Red Bull will also have a Silent Disco at the festival, the first one ever held in Sweden. Sounds pretty cool to me! To make it even better we also have two friends coming down from Stockholm for the weekend to join us. In other words, something to really look forward to.  🙂

I’ve been dying to tell you!

13 Comments Melbourne, Move to Australia

I must be honest, we’ve been keeping a secret from you. A pretty big secret, a life changing secret actually.

We’re moving to Melbourne!

 

It has been so hard not being able to share my feelings and thoughts, to talk about it here but until it was all finalised I couldn’t tell anyone (except my closest family that is). I’ve been offered a great job with my Swedish company’s sister company in Melbourne that I’ve accepted and Simon is on the hunt for a job as well. My work will sponsor my Visa and if all goes according to plan we should make the move sometime in the end of the summer, Swedish summer that is.

My emotions have been running all over the place for a couple of months and I don’t think it will stop now. I’m thrilled, excited, happy, overwhelmed by everything that has to be organised and a little scared at the same time. It’s hard knowing that our decision will make some people extremely happy and others the total opposite. But hey, that’s our life. That’s what we got ourselves into being in a Swaussie relationship. 🙁

But right know I’m going to allow myself to focus on being happy and excited and try to wrap my head around the fact that we’ll be living down under in just a couple of months. A new exciting chapter in our life is about to start.

Tex Mex pie

No Comments Recipes

On request, after posting a post on Facebook showing the delicious Tex Mex pie I made this weekend, I’ll now share the recipe with you all.

It’s a Swedish recipe directly translated so you have to be careful when it comes to the measurements, a table spoon in Sweden and USA for example is 15 ml and in Australia it’s 20 ml. (I’ve  been frustrated about before – read HERE). I’m not sure you’ll be able to find créme fraiche and the taco seasoning mix for example either but maybe you know what to substitute it with. Sorry about the bad photo of the half eaten pie but I didn’t take a photo of it before we dug in so that’s all I got. 🙂

Tick season

No Comments Sverige

Something I truly hate about Swedish spring/summer are the ticks. I see no reason for these nasty creatures to even be around. They’re yucky and they spread diseases! I’ve come to realize that this year’s tick season is here, having found four ticks on Pollux over this past week.
