Turning Torsos & Football

After sight-seeing in Lund, ¬†Agneta and I went to Malm√∂ with her daughter, Niki and her boyfriend, Martin. Originally it was supposed to be a day trip (plus I had a list of things I wanted to see), but the weather was super gross and it was ¬†a Sunday, so it was decided we’d go in the early afternoon instead, about an hour before kick off.¬† Continue reading

Touring it up in one of Europe’s oldest cities

*Note: I am so,¬†so¬†sorry that I vanished for the last two weeks. I’ve been in Spain (!!!) for the last two weeks, but, unfortunately, the place I was staying in had no wifi. HOWEVER: I am in Madrid now, with all the wifi a girl could want and will¬†finally continue one with catching you up with all the places I’ve been, people I’ve seen and things I’ve done.*

After our two days with the car*, we spent day three actually in Lund. Which, if you didn’t know, is one of the oldest cities in Sweden and has one of the oldest universities¬†in Europe,¬†as well as a historic church which contains the heart of Queen Mary’s son, who died on their visit in Lund. ¬†My reaction was kind of like¬†this. ¬†Because¬†why?¬†¬† Continue reading

This will be a quick post, I promise. I’m working on sorting out posts for the next few days, since I leave Monday (!!!) for Spain. Twenty-four hours by bus through England, France and Spain. WHO’S EXCITED? Before that happens, however, we have to get through Sweden (and then London). ¬†The great thing about Sweden is that it is so freaking photogenic it did most of the work for me. ¬†Note: I have a thing for water and flags. And Helsingborg had pleeeenty of both.¬†

Sweden: Part I of an Undetermined Quantity

Apparently it’s not exactly easy to post about extended travels. Especially when each day was a trip in and of itself and how, exactly, do travel bloggers do it? How? Because after spending five days editing the first part of my pictures (it wasn’t¬†just editing. There was catching up on Melissa & Joey and The Newsroom and Suits and stuff. Multitasking at its finest!), I’ve spent another three wondering how,¬†exactly,¬†¬†was I supposed to start? Do I do the places I’ve gone and then separate posts for food? And what about all the pictures I took? On average, how many photos and words is a person willing to read in a blog post before they exit? (Have you already exited this post?) After thinking all of these deep, deep thoughts, I finally realized that I hadn’t actually started anything and the days were passing and so, here we are. With a lonely blog, a rambling blogger and lots to share under the cut.¬† Continue reading
