Kalle Anka i Asien

Jag och Linus hade ett fotoprojekt under resan till Asien. Han tog med sig en leksak, en gammal Kalle Anka som kör bil, och så dokumenterade vi Kalle Ankas resa. Här är resultatet, Kalle Ankas reseberättelse. Shanghai, Kina: Först kom jag till Shanghai, en jättestor stad med både gammalt och nytt. Det här templet jag […]

Sunday morning at People’s Square Garden

Sunday morning at People's Square Garden

Sleepless in Shanghai. But if it hadn’t been for that I would have missed the experience of this morning’s walk in People’s Square Garden. Tai chi and other forms of exercise, the umbrellas from the Marriage Market left unguarded on the ground (this is where grannies meet and try to find a match for their […]

Behind the Great Firewall

It’s my first time in China and so far I’m a bit too jetlagged to enjoy it, though Shanghai seems like an interesting city. But not being able to do the everyday things like checking my Gmail account and Facebook is really annoying. I didn’t think it would be such a hindrance but it is. […]

On top of the world

On top of the world

If there ever was a selfie moment, this is probably it. The Shanghai World Financial Center building, which looks like a shopping bag with a handle, has the world’s highest observatory. At 474 meters above ground the view is pretty spectacular even on a day like this. I can only imagine what it would look like […]

A trip to Louisville

I’ve spent a few days in Louisville, Kentucky, taking part in the NICAR conference as a part of a research project on data journalism out of Södertörns högskola. It’s been intense, fun and inspiring. The first day I took an all day class in Tableau Public, a visualization and data analysis software which seems promising […]

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 […]
