One year in Sweden

To celebrate our one year Sweden-versary we compiled a video with some of the highlights. We successfully survived many of the things we were warned against such as the winter, the darkness, the strange customs and the Swedes.

There are also a number of other small videos on our YouTube channel which can be found by clicking this link:

We hope that this blog helped to keep us close although we are very far because we miss you.

Parents in Sweden

In exactly one week my parents will be in Sweden. We are looking forward to this event and have a full schedule. This includes showing them how we live, what we eat, Uppsala city, castle and cathedral, Gamla Uppsala, Stockholm, many museums, a boat trip, train trips and much more. Their arrival will also be exactly one year after we moved here (we will have a post on this soon). We are well prepared for the vacation and will upload stories and pictures afterward.

We took the advice from Jaco (Ronnie's PhD-supervisor), still sharing his wisdom, and took some holiday. We went to see more of Sweden.

However, for this blog we are experimenting with the idea of video blogging. Our vacation in Mora is therefore available in this format (note that the whole vacation is summarized in a neat 3 minute video clip, and you need not worry about watching hours of boring holiday footage or slides). Click on the video below or click on this link ( for a high resolution on Youtube.

Please let us know what you think about this format compared to our traditional blogs. Is it, too slow (downloading), less informative or better?


p.s. We are glad that the darkness is returning during the night. It is really nice to go to bed when there is less light. Looking forward to winter...
