Hometown Memory Lane

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.

Friends and BBQ

Arrived in south of Sweden after a day at work together with old friends that lives down here. Amazing to be here and to catch up. Had an amazing evening hanging out with my oldest friend A and his girlfriend P and their amazing kids and my friend C. So A have made a magical BBQ buffet for us when we arrived and me and C had some nice beer with us. So first we spent some time playing with the kids and after they went to bed we adults had some beers and watched some hockey and talked,

However, now it’s bed time in order to be ready for the world championships of hockey tomorrow in Copenhagen where me A and C will spend the entire day. I’m so looking forward to it! Good night see you tomorrow!

Staring a chair project

Sunday and mixed feelings. A great weekend but my wife G is going back to Oslo and I’m going back to Gothenburg. However, I’ve got a project in the making. I’ve picked up five old school chairs from the first part of the last decade. What’s cool about stuff that old is that the material is massive. It’s good wooden material and the wood is massive. The steel is also the real deal.

What’s the plan? The plan is that I’m going to take of the chairs and make it the prototype in order to see how things turn out. The thought right now is to dismantle the chair. Sandpaper the surface of both the wood and the painted steel. Repair the damages to the wood and to paint it with clear coating. Then to spray the steel frame with primer a few times and the paint it leaf green and assemble all pieces again.

Super excited for all of this right know and very curious of how it all will turn out. Have you done something similar, please leave med some advice in the comments.

Winter Cottage

This time of the year last year me and G where planning our wedding up in our cottage in Dalsland. It feels like forever.

This weekend where up in the cottage again and it’s winter like last year but so much more winter, more snow and colder. It’s so cold the the water has frozen in me and Gs little cottage so we have to get water in her parents house. But it’s silent and absolutely stunning. The peacefulness I get here is not very many other place that can offer.

So the plan is to celebrate Gs moms birthday and just relax. I hope to get out on a small hike and to get out in the nature with my camera. Hopefully photos will show up later.

Biggest Event of 2017?!

I’ve promised a review of 2017 but there is one thing I haven’t written about earlier and that’s the biggest event in my life so far and by far the biggest event of 2017.

What is it?!

I got married to G. It’s almost a year ago now or at least it will be in the end Of May. So from now on me and G are Mr. and Mrs. feels so amazing and the wedding where by far the best day of my life. Nothing else does even comes close to it to be honest. Me and G planned the wedding for over a year and everything just exceeded the expectations by I was so nervous when I woke up that morning but it all turned out great.

Promise a longer blogpost about the wedding later on this year. Maybe around me and Gs 1 year anniversary in May. But I just had to share this photo. I’m married!

There is thing happening in 2018 as well but not as big as this. However a lot of things is going on right now and I hope to share more about it along the way.

Copenhagen x 2, booked!

I’ve got two trips planned this spring and both are to Copenhagen, Denmark. There tow different kinds of trips and the first one will be already in March and the second one in May. The last one was book just a few hours ago so I’m super happy about it. Especially because I went to bed last night thinking the it would be a while before my next trip.

The first trip will be a family trip in order to celebrate my moms birthday together with my sister, her boyfriend V and off course my wife G. The plan is pretty simple, to hang out with my family to eat good food and have a relaxed and nice weekend. All tips for good restaurants and things to do are more than welcome. If you got any please leave a comment below.

The second trip will be a hockey trip in order to see IIHF World Championships 2018. So an all day in Copenhagen in order to see three games with Team Sweden as the big game together with two friends. Me and Alexander that’s going to join have been watching and discussing all Hockey World Championships since 1992 together sp its kind of a big deal and its the first time we will watch any of the games live. Super excited about this one as well.

Now are both trips official. I just have to finalize the last details on these trips but I’m so looking forward to both of them. I visited Copenhagen in March 2015 last time and really started to like the city so, I’m real happy to go back.

Here are the post from 2015 if you would like to catch up.

Skiing Weekend!

This weekend I finally went skiing. After last weekends failed attempt to go cross country skiing due to a sick wife we finally made it this weekend.Perfect weather with clear blue sunny skies, a lot of snow and minus 13 degrees Celsius. Doesn’t get much better than that to be honest.We went to a place about 1 hour north of Oslo by car called Brovoll. The only way to get there is by car as I know. This isn’t a ski resort or something like that but an small place that was recommended by Norwegian friends. A small house with a small cafe and just first class tracks for cross country skiing. Where an amazing weekend and getting out into the woods on skies a sunny winters day is hard to beat. The snow covered trees and the meter think layer of snow that covers the ground. The silence of absolutely nothing is breathtaking. When I go skiing in that kind of conditions everything else just disappears. It’s good for me I’m sure it that. By the way had my GoPro with my and just had to try it out. Might come a short video later.Have you tried cross country skiing? Let me know if you want to try Brovoll and I can give you the location more exact.
