Summer of -06

MidsummerI have been really quiet on more personal topics for a while now. I’ve been pursuing a path through the lands of techno-blabber-blogging, and I will now take a short de-tour into the more personal spaces. I’m not fooling myself, most people that read this blog are my friends or family and you guys couldn’t care less about how to use Winamp 😉

The plans for this summer have started to materialize from nowhere. I actually already have the necessary flight tickets bought and ready. The plan is bascially this: on the 14th of June I and Shirley will fly from Hong Kong to London, where we will arrive after lunch, thanks to the time difference. We will then spend a little more than two days in London for general sight-seeing – it was a while ago I visited London and there is still a lot to see.

On the 16th we will fly to Gothenburg and meet my family. Then it gets a little complicated – Shirley really wants to see more of Europe, especially Germany. I won’t object to that, even though I certainly have been in Europe a lot already. The plan is to borrow a car and drive down to Germany and just travel around for about a week. The problem is – Germany is hosting the World Cup in football (soccer) which most definately will make it crowded in the hotels. As of now, this is an unsolved matter. We plan to visit Berlin, some scenic castle and perhaps go down to Freiburg to meet Benjamin and maybe take a detour into France or Switzerland. I will have to do a lot of driving, given that I’m the only one with a license 😉

We will return to Sweden right in time for the Midsummer festival at the summer cottage of my family – we can show Shirley all the typical Swedish habits of dancing around poles like frogs, eating stuff and getting wasted. After that weekend, we will take a minor tour in Sweden by car – maybe even to Stockholm and back. Shirley will then fly to London on the 2nd of July and onwards to Hong Kong.

How about me? I will stay in Sweden. But not for good. My return ticket to Hong Kong says 14th of August (right after Visby Medieval Festival, which I very well might attend). If me returning to Hong Kong is news to you – although not all the paperwork is done, I will stay in Hong Kong in the autumn to finish my master thesis (‘examensarbete’). When things are more clear about this, I will write a post about it. After that, I will return to Sweden for graduation, and maybe, maybe study in Sweden together with Shirley for some time. But that’s far into the future…

While staying in Sweden this summer I will be taking it easy. I won’t work. Or rather, I will work intensely writing products for Neogames, but it won’t be that well payed. In the same time, I will role-play as much as possible and meet friends. Notice how I prefer staying in Sweden only at the summer (my clinical tests have shown that Sweden is unhabitable for me during winters).

If you wish to meet me in Sweden between the 14th of June and the 14th of August, don’t hesitate to contact me! I have a lot of catching up to do!

  1. Hej hej =) Det här var onekligen lite intressantare än Winamp 😉 Jag är ju dessutom så dålig på att fråga saker så det är väldigt praktiskt när du skriver det på bloggen =P
    Det verkar som sagt som du kommer få köra en del bil… Men det är väldigt praktiskt att vara passagerare! (Jag har ju just varit på en liten bilsemester med Henrik, så jag vet) Men det blir inte så länge ni ska köra runt då eller?
    Har du bestämt vad du ska göra för exjobb, eller bara att du ska göra det där?
    Jag hoppas i alla fall att vi hinner träffas i sommar =) Jag ska till Gotland i slutet på Juni och till Island lite senare på sommaren. Annars har jag det lika oplanerat som vanligt. Medeltidsveckan är ju givetvis ett alternativ…
