A pot of coffee

Erika: Our morning routine for this whole week has been to sit at the balcony, drink a pot of coffee and talk. We’ve talked about (and here comes a Swedish phrase) allt mellan himmel och jord, which translates into all in between heaven and earth. I’ve loved our little morning routine. To sit and talk …

English Pub Located – Hangover!

Eric: So last night we went out. And now I hurt. We were invited along to an English pub in the centre of Malmö for a pub quiz and I was quietly confident. The Pickwick is a fantastic representation of Englishness, with its wooden bar and selection of ales, and I was very surprised to find …

Tvättdag i Malmö

Erika: Även med allt som händer med Brexit, så finns där fortfarande en vardag. Och idag var det tvättdag, så det var dags för mig att introducera Eric för våra tvättstugor.

Hug Anniversary?

Eric: Today is the anniversary of our very first hug. One year ago, our physical contact was non existent, as we tried to test the water with each other. Laughing and joking and flirting. (You know how it is.) Then finally... we hugged when we said goodbye! So happy anniversary to you Erika. (And I'm sorry …

My First Day On “The Bridge!”

Eric: Entering Malmö from Copenhagen was something that I was very excited about. Having been introduced to the TV series, 'Bron' fairly recently, and seeing the Öresund Bridge from the aeroplane, my anticipation and expectations were high to say the least. I flew to Copenhagen airport, from Amsterdam... my luggage did not. Let's take a …
