En tur till Tvååker och Göteborg

Nu har vi varit på långresa med Linus för första gången. I torsdags tog Kalle och jag bilen och for söderöver. Efter några rätt täta amningsstopp i början sov Linus i tre timmar, så sen blev det bara ett stopp till (med blöjbyte i bakluckan! Brrr… kallt för den stackaren). Det var riktigt trist väder […]

Linus has grown into the nice pyjamas Pontus sent him. So cute!

En månad idag

Idag fyller Linus en månad. Det är inte klokt hur fort tiden går. Han har vuxit till 58,7 cm och väger 4896 gram (i onsdags). Redan ser hans händer och fötter större ut, och han har vuxit ur sina första plagg. Nu har jag plockat fram kläderna i storlek 62, även om de flesta 56:orna […]

One week old

Today Linus turned a week old, and it feels like he’s been living with us for much longer than that. Already it’s hard to imagine life without him. Today he lost the remainder of his umbilical cord. His left eye is still clogging up because of a narrow tear canal, so we’re trying to keep […]

Linus is here!

On July 29 at 00.35 I gave birth to a baby boy. Finally! Now we’ve been home for a day, and right now he’s asleep on our bed, looking very peaceful. It’s amazing how much love you can feel for a person you’ve only known for four days. His full name is Linus Anders Willard […]

Long photos project, 2nd half of April

• April 17, 2008 • Comments (1)

Peter Lindberg started a Flickr group for a daily upload of 11 second video clips, a test to see what can come out of Flickr’s idea of “long photos”. I think it’s a good idea and will try to post a daily clip to the group pool. Here’s the first one, of Morris on the […]

Back home, looking back on the Thailand trip

Back home, looking back on the Thailand trip

I enjoyed Thailand a lot, especially after Vietnam and the challenges posed by the mad traffic and the cold weather there. Koh Pha-Ngan is a great place. Both the places we stayed were good. Seetanu Bungalows placed us straight on the beach, Chao Phao, which was a nice sandy beach which is supposed to be […]

Sunshine, warm waters, sandy beaches

Sunshine, warm waters, sandy beaches

Thailand is very relaxing, and we’re not really doing much, so I don’t have much to tell. Atleast everything worked out with meeting K at Bangkok airport, fetching the train tickets at Thai Airways domestic cargo office (though that was a bit of an adventure) and taking the flight down to Koh Samui. Koh Samui […]

Halong bay and Cat Ba Island

Halong bay and Cat Ba Island

Halong Bay wants to be one of the natural wonders in the world, and though we went in the cold of winter, it was very beautiful. A calm sea and the most improbable rocks protruding from it. It was a good choice to stay overnight at Cat Ba Island though, instead of on the boat. […]

Hanoi in the cold

Hanoi in the cold

We had decided to stay in Hanoi for four days, during which we could use it as a base for day excursions and possibly a two day trip to Halong bay. What we didn’t count on was the cold, though. Some guy said it’s the coldest winter in 50 years, with cold winds coming down […]

Vietnamese food

So far I’ve only had one dish I didn’t like in Vietnam. The food is very tasty, and not too spicy. Instead it is flavourful, and they use a lot of ginger which I like. Our favourite restaurant in Hoi An is a small and simple place called Café 96. Their food is tasty and […]

From budget travel to five star luxury

From budget travel to five star luxury

When browsing I thought the Palm Garden Resort looked pretty nice. Though I thought that the self-appointed five stars were probably just a way to attract more tourists. Gitta agreed that a few days at a resort would be just the thing for us, so we made a reservation and asked to be picked up […]
