Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Since it has been a while since we last met, we took an “oval weekend” and visited Thea’s brother and his family, who live in Troms° in Northern Norway. This is my third visit, but my two previous visits have been in late autumn/early winter, this is the first time I have been there during summer, even if we missed the wonderful summer weather they have had this summer (and that we haven’t seen that much of down here, even if things are looking a bit brighter now).

I have taken some holidays and Thea had a long weekend, so we left already on Thursday night and din’t return until late last night, it feels like we have been away for quite some time. But then we have had time to walk around the city two days, visit the Arctic museum Polaria, climb a mountain and take the Fjellheisen cable-car down again, see an halibut of eighteen kilograms that Thea’s brother’s friend Marek had caught, have lunch with Eirik and Marianne, snap some pictures, but above all spend some time with Thea’s family.

This week I am going to be “holidaying” at home.
