That’s it folks!

Erika: Slowly growing apart. Day by day the distance proves its point. Old, and new, routines building their way back up. Skype and FaceTime is forgotten about. Phone calls and texts starts to become more of a forced update. Bad excuses and white lies. Trust issues. The I love you's has lost their meaning. And so …

3, 2, 1 – Go!

Erica: Tomorrow is my going home from work day. Maybe for ever, or maybe only for ten days. Either way, I'm going home and I'm now only three days away from seeing Eric. So for the last time, about these old Chinese traditions with lucky and unlucky numbers, it's about the number three. I had …

Straight to Sex

Erika: Obviously I got that one wrong! Straight to six, is what I mean. I deliberately skipped our countdown number seven. Relationshipwise it's a lucky number, but it also has an unlucky meaning in Chinese traditions, which I won't even read about. But there are other things about the number seven too. Like the seven …

The Number Eight

Erika: Eight days to go until I'll be in Eric's hometown. And one week goes really fast. Especially for Eric, I would say, because he needs to sort things before I get there. Like doing all his laundry, cleaning, grocery shopping AND haircuts and facials and things. 😉 In China the number eight is a …

Our Internet Home

Erika: I’m off to work again, for two weeks, and back on a bad internet. I say bad, but it’s really none existent and drives me crazy. In Swedish we say “ha kort stubin”, which would translate into something along the lines with “be a loose cannon”. That’s me. With bad internet and other things, …

The Endless Search for Employment

Eric: The distance thing has just got easier. Erika is home and has decent wifi once more. It may seem silly, but there is nothing worse than a long distance relationship with limited wifi! And my flights are booked! I'm heading back to Sweden to spend a glorious 8 days with my beloved. And I …

PMS: Long distance love at THAT time of the month

Erika: Yesterday I wanted to think about something else than my bad mood. Yes, it's that time of the month... And my plan was to write about it to get it out of my system, but the tech Gods had other plans for me. Not that my iPhone, iPad or MacBook didn't work and that …
