Unfortantly we’re not as active here as we would like to. If you’re seeking adventure and inspiration we recommend you to check out West Sweden.
It’s easy to make New Year’s resolutions regarding your health when you’re standing there watching the fireworks with a glass of champagne in your hand, but it’s a lot harder to keep. Yet, the time has come to pick yourself up and put on your running shoes, because 2016 is the year you become stronger and start taking care of yourself. You need to get going and keep going.

There we were, outside the main entrance on a bitterly cold afternoon, waiting for the doors to this year’s Christmas at Liseberg to swing open. Some were jumping up and down to keep their toes warm, and I’m sure many were wishing they had a cup of warm Glögg* and a ginger snap in their hand. It may be wrong to claim that Christmas has arrived in November, but on the first day of Christmas at Liseberg it’s difficult to deny.
The rain is pouring down and leaving glistening puddles in the streets. Yes, we do have days like this in West Sweden too.

The just over 200 kilometres between the restaurants Pensionat Styrsö Skäret and Norrqvarn in Lyrestad are lined by small-scale and organic food producers and farm shops.
When I think of fast food, I usually think of burger chains and pizza restaurants. This type of food can be enjoyable once in a while, or for convenience. The Food Truck trend and a broader range of instant meals have now reached Gothenburg, and this is obviously something we greet with open arms, rumbling tummies and curious taste buds.
” Then, when things are worst and nothing helps the tree’s buds break as in rejoicing, then, when no fear holds back any longer, down in glitter go the twig’s drops plunging, forget that they were frightened by the new, forget their fear before the flight unfurled –feel for a second their greatest safety, rest in that trust that creates the world.” (translation by David McDuff)
