Easy adventure, hike with our baby


Because our baby is only 2 months right now we try to figure out how to hike with him. We have bought a manduca baby carrier and so far he have nerver cried in it.
Today it was summer weather here in the Swedish mountains and we choosed to hike on a trail between Vålådalen -Nulltjärn and Stensdalen. The trail followed a river and we hiked 6 kilometers to a bridge that crossed the river then we hiked the same way back
We stopped on one of the beautiful places and we both took a swim in the water. It was very refreshing and it was great. I nursed our baby and tried to protect him from the mosquitoes. Now we are back in the apartment in Åre and will soon enjoy dinner.

The feeling of being a tourist in your own town


We often love the feeling of being a tourist in our own town.  Is easy for us to just walk from Södermalm to Stockholm city.
Look at all the people and breathe in the atmosphere in Old Town. Watch the royal guard at the castle or trying to decide witch restaurant we should try next.


Dreaming of flying a balloon over the city with friends or walking in to a little store with seafood.

We can do this many times because we love our town.

The inn at Though City, Tofino

The most intresting hotel I’ve ever visit is “The Inn at Though City”
After vi stayed at Maczkenzie beach resort and camped in our Hilleberg tent in the rain, and you could say that the standard of the resort was not the best, even that we camped.
Then we went out for the “Hot spring tour” and we hadn’t booked a place to sleep for the night. When we came back we choosed the place that looked most intresting and that was “The inn at Though city”

We talked to the owner during the evening and he told us that he built the house 14 years ago with just recykled materials. On the ceiling over the bar he had all these labels.


The room was ok, the view beautiful, the sushi good and a lot of interesting stuff.. But in the summertime you will probably have to book this place a long time before your arrival.

A long long walk

Yesterday when I got home from my night shift Peter and I went out for a long walk in the sun. Really nice weather. I think it took about seven hours with tvo stops. Here on my funbeat page you can find the walk.

Just outside our home at Årstaviken, South Södermalm.

View between Södermalm and Långholmen

Here crashed a fighter plane during a show in 1990.

Playground for the small kids at Rålambshovsparken

And bouldering for the big kids, maybe you?

Dimma laying on a lion.

We bought cheese in a cheese shop on Kungsholmen, Winja’s oskällare at Bergsgatan 26.


Stadshuskällaren, here you can eat Nobel dinner.

Then we went to a dog friendly cafe called Coffee and friends at Dalagatan 54.

Peter lived in Vasastan just when moved to Stockholm. Right next to the gate that he lived in, it has opened an outdoor store that we have not been inside yet. Unfortunately not this time either because it was Easter closed.


At Kungsträdgården

Götgatan, soon home.

The Swedish soul

This commercial hits right in the Swedish soul. Text from a Swedish old poet, a new interpretation of one of Sweden’s most popular bands and Volvo. We actually test drove this car when we were up in Sälen. Really nice to drive!

Here you have the whole song with lyrics in English.

Even if it’s cold it’s fantastic spring weather, Blue sky and the sun is shining so you need your sunglasses. Here is som pics from this mornings dog walk. I call them waiting for spring. Click on images for larger view.

A day around Norr Mälarstrand

Today, both Peter and I have a day off, or rather, I’ve just been working night and Peter will work tonight. Stockholm has had fantastic winter weather so we took the opportunity to take a long walk along Götgatan, through the old town and candy store, along Norr mälarstrand, over the bridge and along Årstaviken home. Here are som beautiful pictures of our day.

A common Wednesday

Sometimes we just want to nature. So on Wednesday we took some fast food after work and went straight to Tyresta National Park. We were all alone in the parking lot and it was dark when we arrived but it was a starry night . We went to our usual place, fireplace at Bylsjön and made a bonfire. There, we enjoyed some hot chocolate and some sandwiches and then went home.
