  • Nope … NOPE

  • Started the day with a 3h train ride from #Aberystwyth to Birmingham, then 8h of flying and waiting. Now 9h on the train before getting back to #Umeå. At least I get some kind of appreciation of the distance. And going by train is much more “humane” than traveling by plane

  • Tio: avoid Shiphol when traveling, silly slow passport control

  • Soon time to leave Aberystwyth

  • Aberystwyth

  • Yesterdays surprise, getting on the train and realizing that it’s a “diesel train”. Apparently it’s been too long since I went abroad the last time.

  • Gammal lärdom stämmer fortfarande: se till att du har stora marginaler om du ska åka med SJ

  • Helt oavsiktligt så är jag tydligen < 10km från Sweden Rock … hade jag haft kameran med mig så hade jag kunnat åka dit men nu blir det inte så.

  • Luleå

But on the way back home I did a quick stop just south of Åmsele to take these two photos. I consider them to be … read more

  • Helsinki

    It’s now been 2.5 years since I visited Helsinki and I still frequently think about that trip. I really enjoyed my 10 days there and during the 5-6 days I was free to do whatever I liked to do, I walked about 100-120 km. So, I got a decent sampling of central Helsinki. What I really remember is the … read more

  • Conferences and photography

    One of the benefits of going to a conference is that you get to see a new place, which of course means a chance for some photography. Here are a few photos from Aberdeen 2019 From Dagstuhl and Völklinger Hütte And finally some from Uppsala In other words I enjoy going to a conference since that … read more

  • My view through the train window

  • Traveling home by night train, was expecting to be at work (very close to the train station) before 6:30. Right now I’m wondering if I will make to lunch, we are about 4.5 h after schedule right now.
