it's been really good to be here in Sweden for christmas. i was in Göteborg for a couple of days, then saw a good friend in Lund, then i've been in Kolvarp in my parents house. (i forgot my camera in Göteborg, but here are a few photos that i stole from my dad's camera).

tomorrow i'm off to Austin (Texas) and Andy, so next time i post will be from there.

brussels, oostend, calais & dover

we took the train to oostend from brussels, but when we arrived found out that you can no longer go as a footpassenger on the ferries from there. after much humming&hawing, we went to calais, (which was so horrible that we even took a taxi to the ferry terminal) and then got on a ferry to dover.

and then finally, bus to london where i continued on (night-bus...) to glasgow.
it was a really brilliant trip. if anyone wants any info on anything (e.g. how much it cost or where to find the best falafel in budapest feel free to get in touch).



massoud was with us all the way.

and sigfrid was also with us, of course.

and the amazing cape-man!


in budapest we had a bath - look how clean we are!
