What a beautiful day!

Today was great, actually we woke up pretty early given the fact that we’d both been having a night out, Charlotte at Annette’s Bachelorette party and I playing Fifa and watching the Championship League final with Claes and Koray.  Both events had been fairly good although, Charlotte’s ended fairly badly as one of the group…

Trip to Budapest

Last Easter I found, to my surprise a trip to Budapest rather than the usual chocolate that comes in my Easter egg.  I don’t know if that was a subtle hint from my wife that I needed to work on my waistline, but it was a welcome surprise as the city has been on our…

A Knight is born …

There was a market in Nyon today with more than 100 different vendors selling everything from used clothes to antiques.  It was fun to go around and have a look at all the different booths and lo and behold at the last booth, I found a real sword! The sword is a real iron sword,…

Not again …

This weekend I spent a great weekend with Kristjan, Berglind and Fanney, but on Saturday evening another volcanic eruption started!  This time it was Grimsvotn, which decided to change the travel plans of thousands of people.  This time around the ash was more visible and basically sat as a layer below the cloudline in the…

Booking made

I know we are fairly busy these days but we managed to take few moments to book a holiday with the kids this summer.  The summer destination this year is not Japan as planned, not Libya either but Greece, more specific Creta.  We are very happy with the choice after thinking long and hard about…

Surprise trip to Malmö

Few weeks back I decided to book a trip to Malmö couple of weeks before Christmas.  The purpose was to visit Charlotte’s parents and grandma and relax a little bit as we have had a fairly hectic schedule recently.  I had also decided that this would be a surprise trip for my angel who thought…

Christmas Cottage

After a hell of a trip to Iceland we finally made it roughly on time 😉  I had not even dared to hope that we could make it after BA cancelled all flights on Friday and Saturday to and from Prague where we were snowed in 😉  But after a delayed but uneventful flight to…
