Thank you and update

Quite surprisingly it seems my little blog here captured a few unexpected visitors in it’s short life… from those who read it for specific advice on how to transport dogs from the UK in to Europe, to others who found it of general interest to see what was happening to someone having left the UK […]

Ven, a small Swedish island

Ven, a small Swedish island

Wednesday, August 11, 2010 No Comments

Yesterday I had the pleasure of taking a day off work to go and visit the beautiful Swedish island of Ven. Ven is a small island, off the coast of Landskrona in Sweden. It’s just 7.5 km2 with only 371 inhabitants. I thought mid-week toward the end of the holiday season would be a good […]

Enjoying summer

Enjoying summer

Saturday, June 5, 2010 No Comments

So summer is well and truly here in Sweden, plus 20 degrees everyday, blue skies, little wind, and the whole place has burst into colour. At last. Apart from the usual work, we’ve also managed to have some great days and nights outside. I now understand why Swedes seem to grab every single opportunity to […]

School trip to Lund's Cathedral

School trip to Lund’s Cathedral

Thursday, May 27, 2010 No Comments

We recently went to Lund to see the huge cathedral there… very cool. It’s supposed to be built sometime around 900’s / 1000’s I believe, so it’s pretty old, and very very big! I snapped a few photo’s whilst I was there (below). Rumour has it that it was built by a giant! ?? “Jätte […]

Visiting new parts of my local town, Eslöv

Visiting new parts of my local town, Eslöv

Monday, April 26, 2010 1 Comment

Unbelievably, despite living here in Sweden for over 6 months, I’ve hardly actually seen much of my local area. The main reason for this is that we’ve had so much work to do since arriving, that it’s been almost impossible to take time out for much else. The things we’ve seen the most have been […]

Eslöv Museum

Thursday, March 11, 2010 No Comments

Today, as part of a school trip, I visited Eslöv’s small museum. I wasn’t sure what to expect for such a small little Swedish town, but, it wasn’t that bad really. Okej, they didn’t have much on display that wow’d me, but, it was a nice little place. Pleasantly presented, and didn’t give you the […]

Dave and me watching Avatar in 3D

So, it’s not often I would ever consider posting a short blog about a film. I’m not particularly a film buff at all, in fact, I can be quoted as saying recently that there are very few films I’ve watched that I could actually say are that good. Last night I went to the cinema, […]

Peter Jöback in Malmo

Sunday, December 20, 2009 No Comments

Last night was a real musical feast for the ears… Dave’s parents Christmas present to us was to go and see Peter Jöback live in concert at the Malmo arena. Like me, most English folk reading this are sat thinking something like “Great! But who the hell is Peter Jöback when he’s at home?”. Well, […]

Just down the road... a church

Church Photo 1

Driving about 2 minutes from my house, I drove by this church… It seemed odd to be ‘stuck’ there seemingly in a field, which at the moment (due to my unfamiliarity with the area I live), appears to be in the middle of know where.  Upon further investigation I have found that it’s called “Trollenäs […]
