Felicidades mamá.

Poco he de decir. Te quiero, te echo de menos, nunca llegaré a ser tan buena como tú, en nada nos vemos.

Repulse Bay & Ocean Park.

Even though it was cloudy we decided to go to the beach, beach and try to get away from the frantic North of Hong Kong Island into the long beaches of its southern playground aka Repulse Bay. We didn't get to swim or at least, not in the sea.

Stockholm Blues

Sergels Torg



Swedish summer often rainy and chilly. But when the sun shines bright, it feels as if the golden hour lasted for the entire afternoon, dying the sky, the sea and your soul in a calm shade of blue. Stockholm becomes the prettiest place in the world. Spiky ceilings, red bricks, shining bright against the endless blue background.

Like those dreamy eyes of half the Scandinavian population or the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. The world around you becomes a peaceful pool under an everlasting sunset. It all feels slow motion, as the girls close their eyes when cycling into Gamla Stan and the guys dream themselves away, while holding a glass of rosévin at their friends' boat. Go with the flow, take a deep breath and drown yourself into a midsummer's night dream. Keep the mood, as the best souvenir.

Kolonilott i Tanto

Are you up for a Midsummer walk?

Dagen före Midsommarafton, körde mamma och mig en promenad runt vårt smulltrömställe, kolonilottsområde nära Tantolunden. Under den spannande kvällsolen, gick vi runt och tänkte på hur det måste vara att fira Midsommar där i gården, med hela familjen. För att sista gång vi var liksom "alla tillsammans" var just där, mitt i Södermalm.


If you are on business (or pleasure) trip to Stockholm, I would strongly recommend to stay in Södermalm. i have no idea about the hotels, but can tell for a fact that the neighborhood is the coolest in Scandinavia. all the pretty hip girls, all the hot guys, the families, the homeless, the sporty and the lazy, find a spot to enjoy under the sun. Tantolunden is a really extense park - (T) Skanstull - becomes the link between sea, engångsgrill and all those magic things that only happen during the short yet gorgeous summertime.

I happend to be in town (thanks to my job) and got a lucky chance to receive a visit from my mum. That person I miss the most, during this time in Japan. Even though I was never in Spain, we used to talk everyday (thanks to being in the same timezone) now, work is busier and the 8h delta don't help but still, we do our best to stick together.

So if you are planning to visit in summer, just don't miss a bbq under the sun! It's fairly simple. You buy an engångsgrill in the supermarket, bring a lighter, some meat, a blanket and friends. When done, clean up and drop the engångsgrill in the red paperbin (which is dedicated for them, as they contain flammable material). Then, just walk towards the hill where all the little cute houses are. These are called kolonilott owned by people who like gardening but don't plan to make a business out of it. On early mornings, it's easy to see the retired and the dedicated watering, chopping and why not, drinking some coffee.

Sweet dreams

Llevo mucho tiempo queriendo tener un gatito en casa. Desgraciadamente, está permitido en nuestro piso en Japón previo pago de una fianza fuera de nuestras posibilidades. Supongo que el abisinio bebé, no es más que una metáfora de la vida.
Anhelamos lo que no tenemos, con lo que damos bandazos entre extremos. No hay sociedad que esté en "el punto medio" ni vida que completamente sea perfecta. En Suecia el tiempo es mejorable, en Japón la jornada laboral podría acortarse y en España los salarios son, desgraciadamente para muchos, deplorables en algunos casos.
Si en Estocolmo, los paseos por Söder me mantenían contenta, qué debería hacer en Tokyo? Cómo puedo mantener esta paz una vez que esté de vuelta a mi normalidad?
