When I came home from the number one spinning session at SATS this evening I checked my email and got to know that pernillabredolt.com is one of the candidates in Skyscanners travel bloscars awards this year. Fabulous, now I just hope that I will collect lots and lots of votes so I can win the competition. Now I am going to take you all back in time and tell the story about my most spontanious trip ever.
A July Friday after work in 2010 when I lived in Oslo, I was together with a former colleague going to fly to Stockholm. But when we arrived in the check in area non of us felt for going to Stockholm so we checked the departure board. We thought Nice – no, Paris – no and so on until we found Edinburgh. Yes. Edinburgh. We both loved the idea. My colleague did not had her passport with her so she had to hurry like crazy to take the Flytog to Oslo city, run to her appartment and get her passport and go back while I was getting the tickets, checking us in and so. In less than an hour my travelpartner was back and on the final call we ran into the plane. On the plane another of our colleagues were sitting for a long time planned trip to Edinburgh and guess who lost his face when we showed up in the aisle since we said that we were going to Stockholm two hours ago when we left the office?! Really funny. When we arrived in Edinburgh we had no where to stay and no clue about what to do during the weekend but in less than ten minutes we had arranged the best bed and breakfast I ever been to and was on the way to the city center in the doubble decker bus. Then we went out for the first spontanious party night, the day after we were sightseeing, shopping, having afternoon tea, got to know what really is hidden under the kilts and went out clubbing and on Sunday before we flew back we finished up with a tour to Edinburgh castle. This is what I call a spontanious trip to the max. And definitley a memory for life!

And so it is Monday again and I am looking lots and lots forward to doing some traveling. It feel like ages since I was out on a tour at an exciting place the last time. There is no doubt that Stockholm is beautiful but I feel that I have had more than enough of this city for a while now. There are 18 days until my travel period starts again so I think I will make a fun schedule to count the days at in order to get the time moves faster or I will go for a pre-vacation trip before Berlin or both.

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.
