It's a small world

Image via weheartit

Some people say that computers, the Internet and smart phones makes us dumber. Instead of storing information in our brain, we google it. We experience anxiety when a dialog on a chat has dozed off, we get annoyed over idiots who follow us on twitter and not to mention the emptiness that occurs when you write, over analyzed, doubt and finally delete a comment on Facebook or blog.

But in the end, it's all those things that make us come together. From following the student rebellion in Egypt via Twitter to Wikileaks. And the small things... To keep connected to friends that lives in other parts of Sweden or the World. Playing Wordfued with an old school friend you haven't seen for 15 years and reading about the everyday life (and soo exiting) in New York to looking at a friends son taking his first step, it's the best.

With all that said, there's nothing like seeing your friend face to face. After all, we are pack animals...

Vacation, day 13

Can't really remember what I did on my 12:th day of vacation. Been back at work for almost two weeks now. Day 13 I do remember (and I got the photos to prove it). D and I took the ferry to the small island of Ven with P and H. The weather was great and we walked around the island. I loved the fresh air and slept like a baby!

Vacation, day 11

Day 11. Two sunny days in a row but although I wanted to go to the beach again, my red shoulders and nose said no!
D and I decided to just take a walk around the city. D just got his new camera and I borrowed his old.

Seen hanging from D's shoulder, his greatest love in life, the Leica M8. I'm jealous. We bought some cherries and plums for the road.

Vacation, day 10

Oh, what a difference a day make! The sun came out on my tenth day of vacation. Me and my brother headed down to the beach straight away with our bags packed with fika. We got a good 4 hours of sun (maybe a bit too muck, we both felt the burn the day after). After the beach, we made dinner at his place and then in the evening we went to Far i hatten where we met up with the lovely Reb and Chicago Kid. It was the most perfect day, sun, good food, beers and great friends! That day really felt like vacation.

Vacation, day 9

On our ninth day of vacation, we took a trip to D's hometown of Landskrona. We visited the museum where they had a photo exhibition of Gerry Johansson images from Pontiac. There was alsom a mini exhibition called "10LoFi" with images taken with "toy cameras" like the Diana and the Holga. Their permanent exhibition featured a lot from the time of the dockyards.

Did you know that they actually built airplanes in Landskrona?

After a few hours at the museum, we went to D's parents little garden where we enjoyed a small lunch and relaxing in the sun.

We wrapped things up with dinner at a local restaurant looking over the harbor. A really nice day indeed.

How cute aren't these little fellas? I've been borrowing my brothers fisheye camera for ages. Maybe it's time to return it and get one on my own.

Get yours here. Get close and start snapping...

Vacation, day 8

I just realized that of my two weeks of vacation I have only eaten at home two times. And one of those times we had take away sushi! Day 8 rained away so D and I stayed in and made our own spring rolls, read about that here.

Vacation, day 7

I'm not a big fan of chinese food. Or thai food for that matter. I find chinese food a bit to heavy. Deep fried shrimps and pork might sound like a good idea at first but after it's not as fun. Vietnamese food, on the other hand! That I like! Crisp, fresh and delicate flavors.

Close to Möllan there's a small gem called Restaurant Asien. Their food is absolutely delightful! D and I had a late lunch there on Sunday. We started of with some spring rolls and then some garlic shrimps. I drank a tall glas of ice cold lemonade. A slice of heaven! If you haven't been there, you must!

Vacation, day 6

I've never slept so good in my own as I did when we got back from Gdansk. I guess it was all the new impressions that made me sleep lika a baby. I met up with my brother at Möllan and got some lovely fresh beet roots, carrots and beans. I tried to give D a call to see if he would join us for a cup of java but it turned out also he was sleeping! In the evening, we went to Tempo with a bottle of polish Vodka in our hands and delivered it to M. He was celebrating his 35:th and as usual, surrounded by family and friends at his favorite bar.

Vacation, day 3, 4 and 5

And off we were to Gdansk, Poland! I'm not going to write anything special about this place, I'm just going to let the pictures speak for them self!

Vacation, day 2

Day 2 saw a break in the rain and turned out to be a nice summers day. D's friend came down from Stockholm with his girlfriend. This was the first time we met her and we thought it would be a good idea to take them out to one of our favorite restaurants, Bastard. As you might know, this restaurant is a bit special and not to everyones liking.

On the summer menu was dishes like chicken liver, grilled herring, lardo and pigs feet. We went a little crazy and ordered two dishes each, sampling from each other.

Here's the lovely couple! After two dishes each we all had room for dessert. Later we ventured to Lilla torg for more drinks. The next morning we woke up with a slight hang-over but that didn't put a damper on what was to come. Stay tuned...

Vacation, day 1

Monday, the first day of my vacation. The weather wasn't what I hoped for but that seems to be the trend this whole summer. But I'm not complaining, I only have two weeks so let's make the most of it. D and I had plans to go to Landskrona museum to see a photo exhibition but at the last minute we found out that they were closed on Mondays... of course... We ended up drinking drinks and eating great food at Carib Kreol instead. And that's not to bad!

I started with a passion fruit Caiprinia and D took a Salines. Accras, jerk chicken, fish soup and a couple of more drinks and some live music made this, our first vacation day, a good day!
