hanging out here in first class on the train to gothenburg for the weekend. surfing the net for free, sipping coffee, eating chocolate, soaking in the Swedish sunshine warming me through the window. train rides are sooo cozy. just another day in the life… hehe. not really. we never travel first class, but it wasn’t that much more expensive thjs time, so we went for it. and i’m loving it.
inevitably i always hear some english when I travel, and just now i discovered that there are 2 american men sitting a few seats in front of me. it feels so cool when i hear american english, like i’m instantly connected with fellow patriots from across the pond. they are speaking quite loudly, so i am staring intensely. hehe. can’t stop. and there’s also this elderly Swedish lady making tons of phone calls about random things. she speaks very slowly & very loudly, so we all know what’s going on with her. great people watching on a train, if the view outside the windows bores you (which should never happen here – boredom – since the countryside is beautiful!),
anyway, we’re headed to the west coast to visit friends this weekend and just hang out. youknow there will be a little shopping, a little fika, a little wine, and tons of pics. gonna be so great to have 3 days completely off. yay!
quote of the day:
“the very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. the joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”

wishing you a fabulous weekend! peace.
