"ABBA" made it to Joensuu and must say that they did an excellent attemp to recreate the ABBA Magic and gave me a nice trip back in time. www.abba-the-show.com

Now in Finland




For first time ever I drived by car over to Joensuu, Finland. From Stockholm I took the Ferry to Helsinki. The driving distance from Bollnäs-Joensuu was slightly more than 700km. Arrived yesterday evening in a snow covered landscape. It is great winter weather here and hopefully I do a bit of snowboarding in Kolli tomorrow.

Morning view


Grounds are white after the snow we had yesterday. Quite a nice view from my cousin Tonis house where I am currently staying.

Skating on the lake


Walking on the lake is not really considered a big miracle in sweden as we do it all the time.

Swedish winter


Cross country skiing with daddy. A lovely winter day. This kind of days I miss when in Africa. Now driving back on an extremely icy curvy forest road. Luckily the spiked tires keep us on the road.

Back in sweden

 Back home with my family. A thin layer of snow here in Bollnäs and temperature just above zero (celsius). Landed few hous ago and took a train to Gävle where Jonas and father picked me up. From door to door appr. 24 hours of travelling. Nice to be back home but quite sure I will soon start to miss South Africa.
