Happy New Year 2013!

4 Comments Adelaide

2012 has been a very exciting year for us with lots of twist and turns on our life roller coaster, the biggest of course being the move we made to Australia in July. 2012 has been a year of both joyful meetings and sad goodbyes. A memorable meeting was in March when I met up with Becca in Stockholm, one of the three kids (now a grown up woman though) I looked after as a nanny in Boston back in the day. I had such a great time catching up with her and I hope it won’t be 7 years until next time. 🙂 The saddest of goodbyes of them all was of course when leaving friends, family and animals to move Down Under.

2012 was also the year I made my wedding photographer debut at our good friends Maria & HĂ„kan’s wedding. We also celebrated Simon turning 30 and sadly missed out on my brother’s wedding at the Canary Islands. We will also remember 2012 as a year of travelling with awesome long weekend trips to Amsterdam,  Prag and a not so awesome, but still memorable, trip to see Swedish House Mafia in Dublin.

2012 was also the year when I made a career change when I swapped my job as a Product Manager for a position as a Purchasing Manager, an interesting challenge indeed. I’ve also been lucky to be able to be involved in starting up the brand new local SWEA organisation here in Melbourne and become part of the board.

It’s now time to say goodbye to the year 2012 and welcome the brand new 2013. We’re excited to see what it has in store for us and hope it will be filled with lots of joy and happiness. We already know it has a visit from my brother and sister-in-law in store for us as well as a Swedish House Mafia concert so we’re off to a good start. We hope you all have a smashing New Year’s celebration,  toast in the new year in style and we wish you all the best for the year ahead.

Walk along the beach

2 Comments Adelaide

I took a nice walk along the beach today. I really love the ocean and the beach. It’s not something you get to enjoy as much in Melbourne so being within 5 min walking distance from the beach here is a treat.

Boxing Day fun

No Comments South Australia (SA)

Some go shopping looking for bargains on Boxing Day and others go crabbing. 🙂 We decided to go crabbing and left early for Ardrossan to get there before the low tide. Ardrossan is a small town about 150 km from Adelaide on the east coast of the Yorke Peninsula.


We weren’t quite as successful as on last year’s crabbing up in Tickera, outside Wallaroo but it was still fun. This time we were six people crabbing for about 2 hours and “only” caught 37 crabs. Enough for a feed though so I’m not complaining.

JulhÀlsning till Sverige

1 Comment Sverige

Som bekant firas ju julen inte förrĂ€n imorgon hĂ€r pĂ„ andra sidan jordklotet ( fast vi kör dubbelt firande). Det Ă€r ju helt fel förstĂ„s men jag tĂ€nkte att jag skulle vĂ€nta lite innan jag talar om det australierna, vill inte förolĂ€mpa dem riktigt Ă€nnu. 😉

Jultraditionerna Ă€r vĂ€ldigt annorlunda hĂ€r (har ju skrivit lite mer om det i ett gammalt inlĂ€gg HÄR) och mĂ„nga av skillnaderna Ă€r ju förknippade med vĂ€dret. Inget mysande framför brasan inte, det Ă€r ju inte direkt nödvĂ€ndigt nĂ€r det Ă€r nĂ€rmare 30 grader ute. Snö fĂ„r vi klara oss utan ocksĂ„ men i sanningens namn brukar vi ju fĂ„ göra det i Sverige ocksĂ„, det Ă€r ju faktiskt bara de senaste jularna nĂ€r Kung Bore förĂ€rart oss med vita jular, iaf i södra Sverige.

Oavsett var och nÀr ni firar er jul vill jag passa pÄ och skicka er en julhÀlsning. Hoppas ni fÄr ett underbart firande med bÄde god mat, dryck och gott sÀllskap.
