Vietnam adventure, day 1: the Saigon experience

Saigon is pure madness. Trying to cross the street is a life-threatening challenge. But somehow it works. And in some strange way the city has a certain charm in all its noisy, dirty chaos. Gitta and I spent nine days in Singapore, and upon arriving here I realized Singapore really is “Asia light”. In many […]

Botanical gardens and high tea

Botanical gardens and high tea

This morning we went to the botanical gardens for a stroll. I’m quite impressed by the jungle vegetation. Great sizes, shapes and colours – very good for photography. We also went into the orchid garden with a great variety of orchids, among them “Margaret Thatcher” and “Kofi Annan”. I kept snapping away. Atleast some of […]

Sleepless in Singapore

• January 19, 2008 • Comments (3)

I woke up at 3 am today and couldn’t get back to sleep. Now dawn is arriving, coloring the sky behind the skyscrapers outside the window. We are pretty jetlagged after the flight to Singapore, where Gitta and I arrived yesterday afternoon. If I was expecting a lot of strict controls at the airport I […]

Soaked in London

• January 11, 2008 • Comments (0)

London in the winter time of course equals rain, rain, rain. We are constantly wet or damp. Though we’ve had a good time so far, anyway. Yesterday we explored the Moore exhibition at Kew Gardens, after having strolled through cozy Richmond a while and had lunch at a nice coffee place by a park. Apart […]

Leaving Aftonbladet, travels, and blog changes

• January 2, 2008 • Comments (1)

I’ve just announced a two month blog vacation at Citizen Media Watch. Also since removing myself from Bloggvärldsbloggen and closing down Stugan, I’ll have more time for updating this blog. So this blog is where I’ll be posting my travel stories and photos when I go to London, Singapore, Vietnam and Thailand during January and […]

Asia planning

The plans for my Asia trip are taking shape. Parts are still pretty unsure, especially India, but in all I am starting to visualize it. I’ll start out in Delhi, and if all goes well I’ll meet P and family a couple of days later, and travel to places like Jaipur, Agra, Kharjuraho and Varanasi. […]

Budapest round-up

Budapest round-up

So how was Budapest? Well, I think you’ll get the picture by … ehrm … looking at my pictures. I geotagged most of them, and I like the map view. Though you should zoom in on the different areas for it to be a good way to explore Budapest and our trip. Some highlights: We […]

Lord of the Rings on stage

Lord of the Rings on stage

One of the nice things K and I did in London was to watch the stage production of The Lord of the Rings at Theatre Royal Drury Lane. I was sceptical as to whether they would pull it off, transforming such a great – and looong – epic to a stage play. But… they did! […]

EFIT 12 maj 2007

Den här EFIT-dagen blev lite mer varierad än vanligt. Jag är i Värmland och hälsar på Sofie, efter att ha föreläst på Karlstads universitet om medborgarmedia. 00:31 – Sofie och Nova gosar 07:58 – vaknade av att takfönstret släppte in en massa ljus på mig. Jag hade täckt för det vanliga fönstret eftersom jag vaknade […]

Ålandskryssning med Common

I helgen var jag på finlandskryssning med sju commonister – två hytter. Jag och Kalle delade hytt med Uffe och Anna. I den andra hytten bodde 2mU, Vrom, Hultman och Nicke. Finlandskryssningar är ju alltid lite speciella, men den här var annorlunda för mig eftersom det var första gången jag åkte med Birka. Helt klart […]

EFIT, sort of, for April 7

This is cheating a bit – EFIT posts are supposed to be made up of photos taken once an hour during a day. But while I unfortunately forgot April 7 was an EFIT day, I did take a lot of photos since I had a full day in London. They are not evenly spread out […]
