Happy Friday friends! My need for some Asian influence in my life except for take away sushi from the closest sushi bar is growin and growing. It is almost a year since I was at the Asian continent now and yesterday I saw a tv show about Japan and guess how much that increased my need for an Asian experience? tonwise! But what I will experience today is the last office day of this workweek, not that bad that either espcially since there are so many people that are unemployed and not even have an office to go to.

Nice is really nice, even nicer than I expected and I had high expectations. This day have been filled with a 10 km powerwalk, shopping, walking around and checking out the place. And a night swim in the ocean. The stones are not as huge as I expected but they really hurt to walk on. If they had imported sand here it would have been an absolute perfect place. Well, now it is time for checking out Nice by night!

Wakeup call: 04:00 a bit too early also for me, but is it holiday is it. A brought a strong cup of coffee with me and are now on the way to the SAS plane that will depart to Nice. Or at Arlanda express more precisely, looking forward to a weekend in French style. Nice is a new destination for me so I am pretty excited going there but I heard it is a top place and I will try to keep you posted about the adventures here.

S S S stands for swiming, spinning and strenght workout and that is the magic formula I have done in terms of physical activity today. I enjoyed all parts of this tripple S workout and it was a good combo. I do definitley not aim for starting a triathlon career I just like to do water activities and since I do not have an endless white and sandy beach around me then I do the best of the situation and perform rehab training and swiming at once at the close by pool. So now my first training day of the week is finished (my training weeks starts on Sundays) and most likely I will have both training holiday at both Friday and Saturday since I will leave for a little trip to a nice place called Nice.

Good morning! I woke up not from the alarm clock but from a extremely loud thunder and lightening session right outside my window. Now the weather is forgiven and I got one hour extra for enjoing Zürich before going back to Stockholm thanks to the wakeup call, so now lets the day begin!

Waking up to a view like this sets the standard of the day. The whole Switzerland feels like a fairytale. There are lakes with magic blue water, cute houses, colourful flowers, friendly people, well organized, red trains that uses their horns, clouds that you can touch, green grass, sheeps, horses, walkers with sticks,citylife and countrylife side by side, cow bells and mountains. Lots of mountains. With threes on and with snow on. With waterfalls, runningtracks, mountrain bike tracks and with cableways up to the top. Swiss really is the place to be and I will definitley put it on my top 10 travel to list but which place that goes out from the list is unclear at the moment.

My nose did not got sunburned today but it is really hot here in Zürich. It was 33 degrees at 7 o’clock when I got here. Fair enough. Now I am just looking forward with a lot of excitment to tomorrows tour to the alps. To participate in Swiss alpine has been on my to do list for years and last two years I have been injuried at this time. I do participate for collecting a great time, I just do it for fun and what is a better sightseeing tour than by foot?

I heard that Starbucks is a great place to get running friendly energy at, I have also tried before and when my flight arrived I did immediately smelled me to the freshly browed coffe chain to get some dinner. Swiss müsli, a scone and of course a cup of coffee was my energy source before I checked out the city of Zürich for a little while. Of course I also bought one Starbucks cup to my collection. I think I have around 20 something of the country mugs now in my collection.

On the trip to Copenhagen this week I flew a wifi plane. It was the second time I traveled with one. The first trip was with Norwegian and to my dissappointment it the wifi was not working. On the SK flight it was working. Not the fastest internet in the world but to my happiness good enough for social media usage. Beeing an early adopter of technology is not always an advantage but I guess that in ten years the majority of airlines will have fast wifi on board and how wonderful wouldn’t that be especially on long haul flights?

Time to leave Stockholm now to the South. Destination Jönköping is coming up for a running weekend. I have not been there since I moved from the city in 2008 so it will be a bit exciting to go back. I like the city a lot especially the location at the water, but it is too small for me to live in.
