‘Come home immediately’, one e-mail said. Maybe jokingly, but friendly. I have seen the volcano far away. I have seen the dramatic newspaper headlines, and they don’t match. Yes, people are...

There is something about living in small spaces. Maybe that’s where adventures happen; tents, tree houses, house boats and camper vans. The less space to live in, the less to take...

Life had a heavy theme the last days. Getting back to Sweden was getting back to sorrow and sadness for the passing of my grandmother. She was 95 years strong, but...

Me and one of my favourite ex-boyfriends had a saying: less than 3 activities in one day and we call it a ‘rest-day’. This weekend was all but a rest day....

If you are looking for us, look for a house with monofins and bikinis. If it’s raining you should look for us outside. A few days ago the tropical rain was...
