Swedish road trip

July 15, 2011

After a few days in Stockholm, my sister and Joanne talked me into joining them on their Swedish West coast road trip. I missed my Vasteras guys so much so we made the first stop a quickie in their small city and the second in the tiny village of Katrineholm where we spend a night at my brothers place cooking and drinking wine and playing with his friends.

Gothenborg is the second largest city in Sweden and it was my first time. We were met by my sisters friends and they showed us around the whole city and took us to all the good local places.  We had so much fun with them and stayed at their place.

Alice was so sweet, letting us stay in her disco apartment 🙂

One afternoon was spent in Lysekil before we moved on and set up our tent in the camping area in Smogen. We had to check out the “posh” marina where the boats was lined up next to each other and small partys was taking place a little bit everywhere.

Copenhagen- Malmo

July 8, 2011

The trip is coming to an end and the last stop is Copenhagen and the last dance. We ended up in the meat packing district of Copen (party area) and met up with some friends to the guys. I have only been to Copenhagen for Fashion week but I really like the city. I never had a boring minute here and not this time either. This crazy night seemed never ending.

 

 

I took the early morning train to Malmo and literally crashed at Mimmi’s. Malmo is so cosy and I love staying a Mimmi’s place eating her mom’s organic veggies straight from the garden.

Amsterdam

July 5, 2011

We arrived in Amsterdam a sunny afternoon and after finding a hostel in the middle of the Wanderlust Park and taking a shower after four days of dirty camping-days, we all felt like brand new personas. My friends Petra and Rebecca from Malta was also in the city and Anna and Camilla from London (ex-malta girls too) flew in as well and I was over the clouds over having my old Malta Unibet girls under the same roof. Surprisingly, the guys wasn’t too disturbed over our loud hysterical re-union and we could hang out. After dinner and drinks we ended up in the red light district and the coffee shops. And the rest you can guess…

Road Trip

July 4, 2011

I had so much fun with the guys from Vasteras so I joined them on their European Road trip.

Me and Emil are sitting in the back of the car sipping wine and eating chocolate.

We dont’t have a map or Gps so we’re just going after our feeling. We’re on our way to Netherlands and Amsterdam but it’s taking a lot of time. There’s no words to describe our face expressions when we drove by the “Welcome to Belgium” sign. We drove to the wrong country, hilarious!!

Summer Jam Reggae Festival, Cologne

July 3, 2011

I met some swedish guys in Berlin and they were all heading to the biggest Reggae festival in Europe: Summer Jam in Cologne. They talked me into joining them, and I’m not the one to turn down a few days of music, camping and fun. My friend Johan that I was hanging out with in Cambdia flew down from Sweden and we all decided to meet and do the festival. At the air-port in Cologne I ran into one of the bands that was playing: Barrington Levy. They offered me a ride to the festival with a short stop at their hotel. I got high by just sitting in their over-smoked car 🙂 The guys were totally crazy and I laughed hysterically the whole way to the festival.

Barrington Levy’s CLICK!!!

I always liked reggae but I haven’t listened to much, apart from Bob Marley, but I really liked some of the bands here. The festival was so much fun. Me and the guys was running around the festival area, smoking, sipping wine, listening to the music, lying in the grass and hanging out in the camping area.
