Looking for a new Electric car?

That’s right! Within a very near future me and my family will sign a leasing deal on a new electric car. I’ve been looking at a some different options such as Volkswagen ID.4, Audi Q4, Hundai Ionic and some other cars as well.

What are we looking for?

First of all a car with a range around 500km. Why? Today we are driving a Nissan Leaf. So what we are looking for is a car with better range, which means a car that in theory can drive more than 275km. Around 500km is a distance I think will cover if not all at least most of our family’s needs.b

Second requirement is luggage space. Today we are around 415 litres and I’m looking for as much as possible. Which according to my research seams to be around 520-550 litres.

Then I’m looking for a cars that’s practical and also good value for money.

So what right now looks like the best options so the Volkswagen ID4. What electric car could you choose and why?


F1 Dad

I’ve been a Formula 1 fan as a kid and teenager. Then something happened. I guess life happened and me and F1 drifted apart. I don’t I know what happened. Honestly I think that F1 started to be broadcasted at channels my family didn’t have. That might have been around 2000.

Since then me and formula 1 have been on different paths. Then my life was turned up side down when my son A arrived. That changed my life in just so many ways but one thing where that I started to be awake at night and other strange times during the day while A was sleeping on me. During those hours I needed something to keep my awake and entertained.

That’s when I found Drive to Survive on Netflix. I watched the first two seasons together with A and also started to follow the current season. Since then I’ve not only seen all the Drive to Survive episodes I also started to follow F1 again and love it. However, I don’t love how the last season ended.

In fact I like formula 1 so much that a tough of actually going on a trip to watch a race live starting to occupy my brain. We will see if it will happen within a foreseeable future. Anyway it’s good to be back and I’ve having a lot of fun discussions with my cousin D and Dad about it. Just that makes it fun.

Schedule for the first part of the 2022 season

Ice cream stop in Dalsland

From time to time we take a boat trip to Köpmannebro in order to have a nice ice cream in a cosy environment. The boat trip there is also a beautiful trip.

My sister in law and here boyfriend takes pretty much all their guests on a boat trip here.

Let me put it this way. If you’re in the area or passing by it’s a nice place to stop by and relax in a cosy environment and have a generous amount of good ice cream to a good price.

20 000 steps as a Dad!

You might think that being home with a child is pretty chill. At least before you get children. I’ve been home full time just me with my son Arvid for about a week now. At the same time as I started being home with A in my own I fired up my Apple Watch and started to use it again.

Guess how many steps I have every day for the two most recent days? I walked 19750-19950 steps each of those days. That’s insane! I’ve got a job where I walk quite a lot I thought and back then I maxed out on maybe 17 000 steps. But most days at work is between 10000-12000 steps.

Will be interesting to see how all of this continue…

The terrace project

It started out with a fence in order to keep my 9 month old son from not falling of the terrace and it ended up as a bit more extensive project than expected. First of all I estimated the amount of material and calculated so I could minimize waste. Then my wife scrubbed the terrace. Then when we new how much materials we needed the entire family drove about and hour to the closes store for the buildings materials we needed and back. After that I rubbed down the terrace surface and after that i oiled it. Then I measured and cut up the materials in the right lengths and my amazing wife built the fence. Took about 3 quite intense days with a kid for us. Super happy with the result.

Work in progress
Done! ✅

Visiting grandmother

Today me and the family have been out on a small trip down to Kungsbacka. The city where I’m from in order to visit my 93 years old grandmother. I’m very close to her and to be able to show her my son Arvid for the second time where pretty amazing. He also charmed the lady living next to my grandmother and older couple we meet when we were out strolling around.

Ordered a new whiskey

Am I a big whiskey drinker? No, especially not since my son was born. Do I like whiskey? Yes, definitely! However, I’ve realized that since I don’t drink much whiskey or often I will buy just a few bottles (one or two) in order to have when I want a small glass from time to time.

Two years ago I visited Backafallsbyn at the Swedish island of Ven. That is a Swedish destillery that produce both whiskey, gin, vodka and aquavit. During my visit at the destillery I went to a tasting it spirits and found some world class products.

So today I’ve ordered one whiskey and I’m on the hunt for another one both from Spirits of Hven. The one I ordered is The Nose malt whiskey. I’m looking forward to try it.

2020 what a year!

Last year where for most people quite special. First of all I started the year on a roof top terrace in Copenhagen, Denmark with some Scandinavian friends. An unforgettable night and party.

Then the next natural thing to write about should be the start of Corona or the COVID 19 pandemic and hit it hit Sweden. However that didn’t came until March.

For me one of my life’s biggest moments came in February when me and my wife realized that we was expecting a child. after that I would say that the entire year came to be about the birth of our boy A. After another very uniq experience he arrived 1st October 2020. Since the he has changed our life, and yes I know that’s cheesy but it’s definitely true.

Before that we had a nice calm summer in the countryside. Then me and my wife celebrated Christmas together for the first time which meant that I didn’t celebrate with my family.

Then we celebrated New Year’s Eve together with the in-laws in the cottage in Dalsland which where the most relaxing New Years ever and very peaceful with great food and drinks. On top of that the entire place where snow covered which made it even more beautiful.
