The old lights for the bike where done. Just went black during one of the rides home. Luckily I knew where I was and it wasn’t in the middle of the forest!!! So I had to go and buy something new. I had my eyes on some Gloworm lights, which get really good reviews. But the problem is that they are expensive and…. I need them NOW! Not in a few weeks.

So off I went to the local shop and got me some good old Magicshines again. Only this time I decided to go for the best and brightest they had. Behold … 6500 lumen. Of course you have to take that with a grain of salt. And how long do they last? But so far so good on the first couple of rides. A lot more light in the forest, which makes a lot of difference.

Luckily I passed by here a few hundred times and know my way around.

What a Friday evening can look like. Waiting in the car for the oldest kid and her friends at Liseberg (amusement park in the city). When you are tired and just want to be in the sofa watching TV. But better get them safely home then sorry.

Trams or subways in Sweden look more like busses with their seatings. This layout, with the seats opposite each other and lots of open space, we only see in movies.

Oh boy, oh boy. That was not a good night’s sleep. When I got my hotelroom, I could hear the cars and train outside. “Oh nice, I can open a window.”, I thought. Not thinking more about it, I just dropped off my gear and went down to the restaurant for a meal. We were quite hungry after almost 11 hours on the go and just a few snacks here and there. But what a surprise when I got back to the room and wanted to close the windows….. There was no window open!!! And I had the highway just outside about 50 metres away. The other side of the building has a view like the photo above. Apparently no noise, me colleague said. Better check stuff like this next time. And at the rate this is going it will be in another 3 years.

It was time for 2 days of HCL DX in Milan. Lufthansa on the way down and Brussels Airlines on the way back. Flying down on a Tuesday evening and back on Thursday evening. The only problem I see with our schedule is the 30 minutes window in Brussels to get out of a plane and jump on the next one. Wondering how Italy is as well.

Milla had a plan to go with her friends. So Zeb wanted as well. The only thing was that after a while he realised it was not at much fun as he thought to walk around with mon and dad when he met friends who were running around on their own. So…. I ended up getting back home to pick up one of his friends.

Another one from the Austria days. Blues skies, big mountians, good friends, loads of time. What else can you ask for?

And we had to go back

Last one for the season in Vallåsen Bikepark. Next weekend is their last one before they close the bikepark and wait until they can open for skiing. But I think it will be a bit tii crowded for us. Even this Sunday was a bit much. Queuing every time we came down. Just 5 min. but still….

And…. the little man is making progress!!! Stuff he thought was a bit scary last time, is just fun this time around. Proud father moment right there.

Enough iPhone already

Dusted off the Nikon D300 and realised that I missed it. Don’t get me wrong, a mobile with an OK camera is more mobile. But you can’t compare quality and range… Now I think there is some dirt on the lenses and what not. As I said, it has been collecting a lot of dust the last few years. Gonna have to get this sorted.

The reason for all this is that we are almost done with the new house after 2 years now, the kids are getting older, …. So there is a bit more time opening up again. And I always get back to photography and MTB for some reason. My MTB needs are already pleased ever day thanks to my commuting. So photography left. And loke they say…

A picture says more than a thousand words.
