Well hello, little old but-not-forgotten blog! How are you doing? Last week I spent four days visiting my little sister, Margot, in Mallorca before she began another course for her Master’s program in Education, which offers courses abroad during the summer. With almost an entire office on holiday, it seemed the perfect chance to escape Sweden for a more tropical climate (although I’m laughing as I am typing this, because it is currently a scorching […]

After our France/Italy/Switzerland extravaganza, we had planned a few quiet days in Stockholm with my dad and brother before heading back to Colorado. Unfortunately, as soon as we got to Stockholm both Conrad and I became pretty sick (probably due to travel, lack of […]
