Hiver Nomade

I just returned home after the most relaxing Easter holiday I ever experienced. Together with 5 friends I spend it in Wallis, a wine region in the French speaking parts of Switzerland. 11 hours of sleep. Late night cooking. Slow roasted easter lamb. Never ending breakfasts. Spa warm up on a rainy easter saturday. A whole day of sun while … Read More

Mainheim – A beautiful work space

Working hard on the Swedish translation here in Nürnberg. Fleissig. It is good to get out of the city from time to time. I spend a lot of time in Nürnberg, where my BF is working. Found a beautiful cafe around the corner of the new Apartment, Cafe Mainheim. I think I will spend a lot of time here. Soon … Read More

Almost Home

After living abroad 15 out of my 33 years I tend to grab for every little crumble of Sweden that falls on my path. From a Swedish expat perspective this week has been a very successful week. I have been tasting the highs and the lows of the Swedish culinary culture. I started off by hanging out in the Småland … Read More

Bread Exchange x Design Hotels

  It is not the first time that I am trading Bread with Design Hotels (Hall 9, Stand 312). Their former director of consumer marketing was bartering with me already 2011, long before any other company approached me. This time I was not baking for the Design Hotels team, but for their guests. It was interesting to discuss my concept … Read More

Småland Tips, anyone

I am heading to Småland in about a month and I would really like to get my hands on 2 horses for a day. Ether on the coast or even at Öland. It can be Icelandic horses or some other friendly kind of horse which is smart and not lazy. Our summerhouse is in Timmernabben so anywhere in the region … Read More

Food for Champions

In 1521, when Sweden during a short period was ruled by Danes, a young Swedish man named Gustav Vasa tried to motivate people to fight for the Swedish Kingdom and kick out the Danish king, known under the name Kristian Tyrann. Gustav had no troops so he went up to  the north part of Sweden (read middle) called Dalarna since … Read More

Last minute ski trip to Austria

Last weekend was supposed to be good weather and we decided to go skiing. But I soon learned that it really has its pros and cons to go last minute skiing. The advantage is of course the possiblity to go where the snow condition are good. Europe is really small so the distances are never really a problem. Last weekend … Read More

Last Minute trip to Stockholm

Last July I visited Sthlm and wrote a little love blog post about a city totally positive and in good mood due to the summer weather. The warm season had returned after 3 cold summers. Swedes live for summer so to get a bad one is like not getting a dose of your life saving medicine. Things can easily feel pretty heavy in the … Read More
