I’ve tasted beer with chili before but this one where really the next level. But why beer on a Thursday?
That’s a totally reasonable question. In Sweden we have summer normally from June to August. So when it today became a sunny Thursday with 20 degrees Celsius it’s a gift. It’s pretty much as Swedish summer in October!
So I just couldn’t let a summer evening possibility like this slip by without a beer on the balcony. The result ended up in me testing the Norwegian beer Habañero Helles Chilli Lager from the Ægir brewery. A perfectly good lager with a kick of Habanero. And that kick is spicy not just a little bit, it’s spicy for real unlike chili beers I’ve tried before. If you like spicy stuff you got to try it. Truly and experience and at the same time a good lager. However I would probably taste even better when it’s a bit more chilly outside (Yes, that was a wordplay and a Gothenburg-ish joke).
By the way the sunset where pretty good to!
However this years its been quite different and warmer than usually. The summers we are used to however has made us worship the sun and warm weather.
A sunny Thursday and 20 degrees Celsius outside. That’s pretty much as Swedish summer in October!
We’re now back home living in Sweden together again. Yes, that’s right me and my wife G are finally living together again.
It where with mixed emotions we pack up the last piece of our Norwegian home in Oslo and drive it back to Sweden last weekend.
This chapter of our life became an five years long one, where both me and G really have fallen in love with Oslo as a city and Norway as a country. But don’t worry we already are planning a trip to Norway the upcoming summer.
Mixed emotions to leave Norway but to be able to live together feels just great!
Today I flew to Stockholm again this morning for a leadership course at work and took a flight back home to Gothenburg and every single time I use the app App in the air. Suprisingly, this might be one of my favorit apps and I will break it down for you and explain why.
- All the info I want!
Yes, that’s right. It gives me all the info that I want, when I need it. When the check-in closes, when boarding starts, what gate I need to be at, when it leaves, when I should arrive and delays of there i any. Just magnificent. This is just how I want technology to work.
- Tracks me
This might be scary to some people but I find in fantastict I can look back and see where and when I’ve been to different places in the world when I’ve been flying. I even gives me home many kilometers and how many hours I’ve spent flying. In fact it even tells me what plane models I’ve flue with and what airlines.
- Beautiful and Easy
The app is just beautiful and shows with great grapics the statistics and the trips I’ve done on a map and then there are small acheivments thats fun to reach and really simple and easy to use.
Bonus. It works with my Apple Watch which feeds me the most importat info that I want without even have to take my phone out of the pocket.
Last night I biked through the city where I grew up and it was a surprisingly good warm feeling inside of me. A few years ago I probably felt a bit uncomfortable but now it where something else.
I biked back from a housewarming party that a coworkers girlfriend had with BBQ, beer, great people and a magical Swedish summer weather. Wether is by the way very important for us Swedes, probably only more important for the Norwegians, but that’s a totalt other blog post.
However, had a real great time last night and meet people from my hometown that I forgot about but that is real nice and somehow made me realize why I wanted to stay they forever when I was a kid. It’s a nice city and I somehow opened the door to some day maybe move back I think.
It’s a city that brought me a lot of great memories and friends. And after a couple of beers taking the bike back to moms apartment that I’ve borrowed for the night where a bit like being fifteen and on top of the world after a summer night out.
In short summary a real trip down memory lane in a modern and present day mode.
Late last night I drove home from the cottage in the countryside in Dalsland. Me and my girlfriend G have been there with some friends in order to do some plannning. Well, I guess it’s time to tell you, in May I’m getting married to G and we will get married in Dalsland.
So we have been to the venue and checked how we could have the tables. Meet the owner of the venue and the chef. We have also planed with our toastmasters A and S. But we also got the chance to hike around the lake. Even if was cold and came a lot of snow yesterday it was beautiful.
Bags are packed, skis and cameras are ready. I’ve take the day off work tomorrow and after work today me, my wife G and sister K head up to Oslo in order to get some more bags, equipment and a good nights sleep before we head up to Beitostølen ski resort. I’m super excited for both alpine skiing and cross-country skiing. A few years back me and G where in Beitostølen with some friends and really liked it and I know all my grandparents have been here several time also. It’s a pretty small ski resort and there is some alpine skiing here but the big thing is the cross-country skiing where they have 320 km of tracks (some used for parts of the world cup tour) and some on top of the mountain which is absolutely beautiful. So Norway we we come!
This morning I woke up in an sunny Copenhagen with snow in the air. I live a short walk from the train station and could see from my hotel window, it’s a pretty majestic building. I started of the day by take a walk to the pedestrian shopping street Strøget.
Started out by the city hall which is a enormous brick building with status and gold.
We walked along Strøget and took a side street in order to find H&M’s latest concept which is a store brand called Arket. I rather quick found two T-shirt’s and a woolen hat. Bit by wife won the shopping as she usually does.
The my sister and her boyfriend joined us and we had a quick hotdog at 7-eleven. Before we hoped on a hop on hop off sightseeing bus and a tour called the mermaid tour. Yes it actually takes you to the statue of the mermaid as a inspiration of the famous danish author H.C. Andersens story. The tour also show us Nyhavn a The Royal palaces in Copenhagen among other things.
After that we slit up for a moment me and the family and me and G got back to Strøget for some more shopping. And I spent some time taking some photos. The tour and the walking around Copenhagen has really made me see more of the great architecture of Copenhagen.
We finished of the night by dinner at the concept restaurant The Italian. Which obviously serves great Italian food. Where we had a three course dinner and some good wine, everyone excepts my sister which is pregnant. So pretty awesome day and I highly recommend The Italian.
