It felt great to come home from work knowing that I had not to start packing my suitcase for the midsummer trip since I did that yesterday. I just had a power smoothie of lingonberries and a pear then I went to visit Bottnes top of the top combat class. That was an awesome hour! After that I went for a small walk to make some midsummer wishes phone calls and to buy something readable for the trip. I was looking for three or four books but could only find one that interested me. Now I just have a few more kilometers to walk until I am back to my casa Vasa. And do you know what? Tonight I can stay up as long as I want since I am going to Asia tomorrow and I have to be tired so I can sleep the whole flights!

After months filled with lack of cooking motivation I have got some of it back. Yesterday I made the delicious dish banana pancakes and it must be the best invention in the kitchen since coco yoggis. Served with strawberries and kesella it is a true midsummer dream!

Low cost – low service. High cost – high service. That is the rule that applies in most cases. I am not surprised when I read about how the LCC Norwegian treats its passengers on the new long haul flights. A lady that is denied food on a flight from Bangkok since she cannot pay with credit card, a teen that is not able to purchase a blanket and has to sit in the cold aircraft all the way to JFK from OSL and aircrafts without inflight entertainment. Then add no flights with dreamliner aircrafts as promissed but in HiFly’s A340′s and lots and lots of delays since the fleet is routed to tight and too small to cope with disruptions. I said it before and I say it again, the Norwegian long haul story is a a high risk project for the whole Norwegian brand – longhaul and shorthaul. Since the start of Norwegian journalists all over Scandinavia have been endorsing the rednosed company by I think the reality now also has reached the skies of Norwegian and the last couple of months the stories in media have been more reality focused showing the fact that low cost means low service. I am curious how long Norwegian will fly long haul routes. My bet is two years – any takers?

I was feeling so tired today when I got home from work that you cannot imagine. My eyes were on auto close and my head was switched off, most likely because I had no lunch walk today. Training was the last thing I thought about so I canceled the spinning class and went home to eat. Then I got some energy back so I changed to a comfy training outfit and ran to SATS St Eriksbron in order to participate in a pump class and my 300 crunches that I do daily as often I remember. So in the end my Tuesday training turned out very well although I looked like a rookie in my cheetah shirt.

I just came back in from a summer BBQ at work. That was a well tasting lunch. I was chatting with my former Lufthansa colleagues that are reps. here and they must think we are crazy having a summer BBQ outside when it is freezing cold and windy like a smaller storm. When I told them that once it was snowing at midsummer they were almost not believing me, but hey – Stockholm is actually just a few hours flight away from the pole circle so I do not ind it to be that strange!

I can’t say I too many times but I just love the summer! Green grass, long days and nights, strawberries and the fact that everything gets so much easier is something I appreciate every single day. I have a positive feeling that this Tuesday is gonna be a great one!

I got some movement today as well. This Monday I did the same thing as many other Mondays this year, went to the Runday training at Karlberg. Today Concore crossfit was there so they held the warm up which consisted of some crossfit inspired exercises in the green grass. That was quite fun but I prefer running at Runday but once in a while it is great with some change. After the crossfit warmup there was a choice of either more crossfit or running intervals. I chooses the later option. The first round I felt like an elephant but the second round it felt much better so when the class was over I went home with a happy feeling. Runday’s are really fun days!
