Mar 7, 2012 - Back on the ice ledge again...
I'm back in my native Sweden and while it's a bit chilly I'm really having a lovely time seeing friends and family again. Isn't it strange how when you return it sometimes feels like you've never really been gone at all? That's a very positive feeling for me. I's been pretty much exactly two and a half years since I moved to London after all... We've had some very nice late winter days lately, blue skies and sunny though a bit of a bite in the air as it's a couple of degrees below 0... but it's not bad at all really. Of course, first thing...Jump to full entry
Mar 4, 2012 - Less then 24 hours left....
Even though we knew that this day was coming it still has felt a little unreal. We are actually going to the US and now in less then 24hours we will be in the air on our way to London! Can't believe it actually. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed and keep checking and double checking my to-do list. Gosh I sure hope I haven't forgotten to add anything to that list. Have I got everything with me? Is everything that I needed to get done before I leave taken care of? And last but not least, What if we oversleep tomorrow and miss our flight! I...Jump to full entry
Mar 3, 2012 - 4 more days or.....
Well I thought we had for more days before we leave but Eric and Julia informed me that I don't know how to count. I was counting Saturday day 1, Sunday day 2, Monday day 3 and Tuesday day 4 but they told me WRONG! From Saturday to Sunday is day 1, From Sunday to Monday is day 2 and from Monday to 7 am Tuesday is almost a day which would make it day 3. I guess I have to agree with the kids on this one =) Today the kids just want to hang out at Sophie's apartment where we are currently living. Her apartment is small but cozy so it's like we...Jump to full entry
Mar 1, 2012 - Only 5 more days...
One day closer! Yesterday was a busy day spent tying up loose ends. We did have a little good bye visit with some friends and that was nice. We woke up this morning with the Swedish spring sun shining through the window. I heard from my Aunt Cathy in LA that we should have nice sunny weather when we get there too. I hope so, these whitey bodies of ours need sunshine =) Today we're going to head on over to Julia's godmothers house for lunch. Another friend of ours will be there too. Feels a bit strange for all of us to be saying good bye...Jump to full entry
Feb 29, 2012 - Only 6 more days.....
Tickets are booked and suitcases are packed. Now all we have to do is wait. That's the hard part. I am really grateful though about not being able to get the airline tickets for Friday since yesterday Eric came down with a monster of a fever. I actually had to take him to the hospital. He was screaming in pain his tummy hurt so bad! Poor thing, i thought maybe he had appendicitis or something and was thinking "Oh No!! Not now" But then I got thought well better now then next week. Anyway it turned out not to be his appendix. Today his fever...Jump to full entry
Feb 14, 2012 - Superfast Jellyfish
Gorillaz in the grocery store...cool. Showed up in Stockholm yesterday night...quick to bed, and boring day today. Ran errands and rested before visiting the bars. Tuesday night not the most exciting...oh well. Sightsee Stockholm in the morning, Oslo tomorrow night.Jump to full entry
Jan 22, 2012 - O'week cont. & Stockholm
Hejsan! So think I was talking about Scav hunt last time- we won! Had to go get a bunch of photos and find special cats and stuff, but we won this massive bag of swedish lollies- half of which were disgusting & tasted like salt! What the hell Sweden?! Tues- Had some international fika (coffee & cake) and then were meant to have the international welcome dinner at Snerikes nation but apparently half our group forgot to sign up so we just played in the club instead! Did manage to crash someone elses breakdance circle in true Jonah style, and...Jump to full entry
Jan 19, 2012 - Stockholm.
19 January. The train was a so called a “double-decker”. Normally, I don’t like to travel with those. They are in my mind narrow, squeezed and overcrowded. But not this time, for the very first time, I had a seat on the upper floor and instead of 40-50 other persons around me, it was only 5 others persons, which I had to share the area with. With other words it was plenty of room. Unfortunately this train did not go the nearest and quickest way to Stockholm. So I had to go the long way, via Örebro and Västerås to Stockholm. But it was a...Jump to full entry
Oct 7, 2011 - Flyg till Toronto
3 timmars resa från Stockholm till Reykjavik på Island, härligt flygväder. Ett stopover på 1,40tim och sedan vidare till Toronto (5tim). Lika fin väder under hela resan. Roligt att se isbergen när resan gick över Grönland. Lasse och Bibbi mötte oss på flygplatsen i sin ny bil.Jump to full entry
Sep 15, 2011 - Copenhagen Check...Stockholm onward
So I wish I could say more for Copenhagen, but I cant. I did not really like the city. It has a very strange architecture and the Museums are pretty lousy. The museums and sights are also open at very odd hours, so it doesn't really give one the change to experience the entire city. For example, the royal palace was closed on Monday (okay no big deal) but for every other day of the week it's open from 12-4 (no big deal, it is the royal palace, I understand) but EVERYTHING is open from that time. So some places I didn't spend, what I though,...Jump to full entry
Aug 16, 2011 - Scandinavia
This travel update is winging its way to you from Scandinavia, the home of tall leggy blondes with blue eyes. Paul has his eyes peeled at all times looking to see if their legs go all the way to the top :--) We crossed into Denmark and headed straight for Odense, the boyhood town of the wonderful story teller, Hans Christian Andersen. The old part of town has been left as it was in Hans Christian Andersen’s day (early 19th century), houses painted soft yellows and oranges lining cobbled streets. There were people in the old town acting the...Jump to full entry
Jul 18, 2011 - Sea Day
Today is our last day aboard the Sun and our Baltic adventure is sadly coming to an end. It was a sea day so Gaby and I slept in. Dad got up early and hit the gym while Mom started the maletas. We all had lunch and desert together. After, we played a game of bingo. We didn't win but we are still blessed. Tonight, we will enjoy our last dinner aboard the ship and get a lot of rest. Tomorrow, we will hop off the boat and enjoy our last day of vacation in Copenhagen. Love, JujuJump to full entry
