I love catalogues. I used to collect them as a kid for all the pretty, glossy photos but eventually have to give it up because it took too much space. Thank goodness for the Internet! You can read the NY Times on line, read the latest Marie Claire from my iPad (which I’m still manifesting, […]

Wow, I can’t believe it’s almost four months since we’ve arrived in Sweden. Time is really flying by. Now that the days are warmer, Mr. G and I are taking our bikes around town and we’re seeing beautiful sights of Linköping we weren’t able to see before.

I read complains after complains e.g. not enough money, problematic country, new skills to learn […]
