FBI Visit

Sunday, November 4th, 2012

What a day it was! While half of Stockholm were having Halloween parties, our neighborhood got a visit by FBI, I got a pair of beautiful earrings almost as a present, and in the night, I met Jesus…

First thing first: two black Mercedes vans (only one on the picture) at the riding school just around the corner, 150 meters or so from my place:

I couldn’t believe my eyes! Yes, the letters FBI on the vans!

Shocked as I was, I went closer, for that was my way to the bus, and what did I see:

One more pearl of Swedish language usage :-)

(And the real FBI should simply ignore my previous post, about the $43 trillion debt lawsuit in the US)

Drottningholm at twilight

Monday, October 29th, 2012

A quick trip to Drottningholm, the residence of King of Sweden.

A couple of days ago, on my way to town I got off the bus and walked back one stop to shoot a few pics – it was worth, wasn’t it? :-)

If you have time for a few more clicks, you can view them larger and have a breathtaking experience, enjoy! (On the photo’s page: Actions => View all sizes)

And if you visit Stockholm and you have 2 hours to kill, Drottningholm is a must see. To get there, you take the green metro line to Brommaplan (direction: Hasselby strand), and a number of buses go there, it’s only 3 stops.

Thursday, October 4th, 2012

Got up early in the morning and took a walk in almost rainy Viking Land – I should expect my millions coming. So let’s do some business! Here is a Ford for sale:

Golden Evening in Stockholm

Saturday, August 11th, 2012

Okay, yesterday Sweden beat my Hungary at mens handball at the Olympics, with only one point. Grattis! Hungarians are anyway far before Swedes in the Medal Count :-p

In the meantime, it was a golden evening in Stockholm, with scenes like here:

Vrångö Beach

Saturday, July 7th, 2012

Summer is here even in Sweden (not to be compared to my Hungary though where they have 40 degrees these days…)

Earlier I promised to go out to the beach in Vrångö island, so here you go, have a great time:

A wonderful walk on the most remote island of Gothenburg Southern Archipelago where the ferry goes to and which is inhabited: Vrångö, as part of this trip.

No way I could live in such a remote, cold and small place where probably nothing ever happens and your life is pretty much dependent upon whether or not you can reach the town when you need or want something, but the beauty of it definitely captured me and I could understand what the people living there must like there.

Enjoy the very special atmosphere of this stunning place!

A terrific part of Sweden, had a short trip with a friend at these islands a few weeks ago. Come with us – if only through these pictures!

(I am not sure of the exact map locations of the photos, but it’s all around there)

Gothenburg Southern Archipelago – 1

Monday, May 28th, 2012

Ever since in Sweden, I guess I had my most wonderful time…

Visited Göteborg (Gothenburg for you English speakers) for the very first time, and at the first impression, I liked the atmosphere better than in Stockholm.

One day my dear friend (who was an awesome host, tack igen! :-) took me to the Southern Archipelago, which is absolutely a must, if you are around the area.

And it’s very easy: you take a tram to Saltholmen, and a ferry from there, will cost you a tram ticket.

Let the pictures talk! Part 1 – before boarding

Winter on the lake – 2

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

After being a bit sick and dealing with a lot of other stuff, back here with my blogs.

A little more snow & ice, before it goes away – but March in Sweden doesn’t mean spring, it is normally end of April when I put away my winter coat…

Continuing from last time when I showed you one of my favorite hiding places by the lake (this is from my Nature photo blog), now we actually go out to the open “water”:


Some more gorgeous pictures, if you click on this one.

This is definitely one thing to do around Stockholm in the winter: walk on the frozen lakes – and even better, if you have a pair of skates…
