Your Past Life As A Blast

I love Okkervil River, and I love this video!

Why not pretend we're there?

Yesterday when we were riding our bicycles around sunny Cph, Jeanette told me I looked like a girl from an old Woody Allen movie. Such a sweet compliment.

Höstsolen i eld

These days we are enjoying fall sunshine and beautiful days, so Sunday afternoon I went for a 10 km walk.




I'm movin' past the feeling and into the night

Last month I went to see this great band, and somehow I forgot to post a picture of their perfect stage decoration. Better late than never, I guess... So here it is.
If you ever get the chance, go see Arcade Fire.

Mysigt

When the days get darker and colder, this is gonna make everything more cozy.

Classic Summer

I just came across some photos from a summer five years ago.
Oh, how I love those Scandinavian summers...

I could not resist...

Today I bought a pair of Vans.

Memories of a Scandinavian summer gone by

I managed to record a bit of video in every city we visited on the great Scandinavian trip. Whenever Cph gets a little too grey and cold, I will watch this and get that special northern feeling of summer, mountains, archipelago, wooden houses and räkmackor.

Election night

I should be in bed now, but this is way too exciting...
It seems that things are about to change.

Sist men inte minst: Finaste Göteborg

Our last stop on the great Scandinavian trip was sweet, sweet Göteborg.

We decided to go to Feskekörkan, as we had only seen it from the outside. I wish I could live right next to that place and go there for Swedish shrimps every day.


Afterwards we went to Saluhallen for lunch. Mmm.

When it was time for Stay Out West, we went to Storan and waited in line for hours for Okkervil River. But when we were about three meters from the entrance, they told us there was no more room inside. Such a big disappointment. We decided to stay and not give up, and finally we manged to get in and see them play one last song. And then it was time for Destroyer...

Then came Friday and sunshine, and after a ride on a tram filled with perfectly cool Swedes, we arrived here...

Bästa Way Out West! We saw The Avett Brothers, Thåström, Prince, Pulp, Säkert! and so many other great artists.






Every once in a while we took a break under the trees and drank Norrlands.


Saturday night we left the festival area early in order to make it to Domkyrkan and Me & My Army. We were joined by drunken Swedes and had silly talks about Thåström, Håkan and other good things.


On the last day of our long and lovely trip, we decided to go to Långedrag for one last räkmacka.






We have been back in Cph for a while now and it feels nice, but I must admit that I really miss Scandinavian summer and long train rides. It was such a perfect trip.

Oslo

We were only in Oslo for two very short days, but we had great fun.
We walked through parks...


And spent some time by the harbor.

We enjoyed the company of these three cuties and went to a silly restaurant with spicy food and indoor thunderstorms.


Somehow we ended up crashing an Øya Festival pre-party, and the night turned into a bit of a pubcrawl, where we met crazy Norwegians and funny Swedes and New Zealanders (is that even a word?).

Definitely have to go back and visit again soon.

Bergen: Fjärde gången den här kvällen, men vem räknar på det?

Bergen was not sunny and warm... But we did not really expect it to be. I actually think I would have been a little disappointed if we did not get to experience real Bergen rain.





We decided to check out the view from one of the mountains...





Bergen is one of the cutest places I have ever been. I honestly felt like moving into about 500 of the houses we passed.




We went to see a stave church... in the rain.


I really want to return to Bergen, because there is still so much to see.

But after a few days we had to take the train to Oslo.
