Down under

I like it here. Mostly sunny but we actually had a bad storm yesterday. The rain is much needed here so we're all enjoying the rain "down under".

Nu far ni inte tro att vi har det sa har varje dag, nejda igar var det en mindre tornado i stan.
Vi hade tur som kunde gomma oss langst in i smyckes butiken. Men intressant det var det minsann.
Jag har nog aldrig sett en tornado innan. Det var over pa nan minut dock, sen drog den vidare. Butiker fick stanga och sirenerna ljod, sa det var tydligen ganska illa.
Manniskorna har nere blir overlyckliga av regn, ja det ar lite lustigt. De ger ifran sig ett gladjeskrik och sen tittar de pa varandra och ser sa oerhort nojda ut. Jag forsoker stamma in jag ocksa. Aven om det ar svart som svensk att kanna den dar gladjen over regn. Naja idag ar solen har igen.

Forecast today  : 42 degrees

Think we better stay in the pool all day or inside near the aircondition.
We're going to some friends house for barbeque tonight let's hope it's
a bit more cooler then.

42 grader, en kar van fran Sverige skrev pa facebook och undrade vart solen gommer sig ? Har! Har!Vi har inte sett moln sedan jag kom hit. Det vore bra om vi kunde dela upp det, varannan dag kanske? Tur att det finns aircondition annars vet jag inte vad vi skulle gjort....
Det ar tydligen inte vanligt att det ar sa har varmt i November i dessa delar av Australien, det borde vara VARkanslor med 25 - 28 grader. Men enligt vadergubben ska det bli nagot kallare i helgen.

Pictures from Chris's house in Australia

Det ar valdigt varmt har i Australien sa vi ar valdigt tacksamma for poolen hos Chris familj sa vi
kan svalka oss i hettan. En annan som alskar poolen ar var hund har Misty, jag har busat med henne i tva timmar nu ute vid poolen. Snart ska vi till Chris farmor och farfar och ata lunch.
Jetlaggen gor att vi vaknar vid fem sex pa morgonen klarvakna och imorse behovde Chris farfar hjalp pa sin frukfarm med nagot sa vi akte bort till slutet av ena farmen och fixade med nagon slags pump. Okej jag hjalpte val inte till da jag satt i bilen och tittade for en av killarna som jobbar pa farmen sa att han sett 3 stycken ormar dar for nagra dagar sedan. Spannande!

It's very warm here in Australia so we are very happy that we got a pool at Chris's mum and dads house.
We jump in the pool as often as we can!
The dog Misty loves the pool aswell and I played around with her for hours this morning and she just don't wanna stop. We were driving around this morning in Chris's familys fruitfarms and one of the workers told us he spotted three brown snakes near the pumphouse the other day. But we didn't see any this time.

The land down under

Hey everyone!

We've landed in Australia, Melbourne and it's so wonderful to
finally be here! It's warm and sunny weather and we're here
with Chris's family and we still can't believe we're actually here.
As soon as I walk out the plane I could smell the beautiful smell of
Australia and it was a very very happy moment.
The plane trip went good and Emirates was taking good care of us all
the way. Now we need to sleep and catch up with all the hours from the plane trip.
We have so much fun ahead and I will update with pictures here very soon.

Gatwick Airport

Just quickly writing to say that everything is really good with us!
We landed at Gatwick Airport London and are bording with Emirates to Dubai at 3.30 pm.
It takes 6 hours from London to Dubai and then 13 hours from Dubai to Melbourne!
What a long trip but so worth it, we are thrilled to see Chris's family and friends very very soon.
It's cold and rainy here in London aswell but we heard it's around 30 degrees in Melbourne!!!
Alright our credit is about to run out so we have to go.
Update again when we're in Dubai, sorry no photos today but promise a lot of them when in Australia.
Bye Bye and wish us a good trip with Emirates :)

Where Else ?

Here's a commercial for the tourism Queensland campaign.
It's the right time to travel to Australia now and
get away from this cold weather.
Winter here summer there...
This is how it's going to be for us from now and onwards,
summer then summer then summer
then summer then summer, then summer.. oh you get it ? :)

New Book

Chris bought a new book today for our long air trip to Australia, recommended by me of course.
I'm a huge fan of Stieg Larssons triology about the genius computer hacker Lisbeth Salander and the journalist Mikael Blomqvist.

Some writeups :

"What a cracking novel! I haven't read such a stunning thriller debut for years...Brilliantly written and totally gripping"

" A striking novel, full of passion, an evocative sense of place and subtle insights into venal, corrupt minds "

Cold outside but warm in heart

It's that time a year here in Sweden
when you have to bring all those warm beautiful
summer memories back.
Freezing cold, dark at four o'clock, and a long
period ahead with minus degrees and grey surroundings.
But with lots of family and friends around, the fireplace
going, nice food and the house full of candles
it can be a cosy time with heaps of warm and cheerful feelings.

We are fully booked down at Ida's family, visiting everyone means food, food and more food.

Our week will be relaxed and full of family activities!
Our plane leaves from Copenhagen in exactly one week.
We still trying to understand that we'll be back in Australia soon, it just feels like some beautiful dream still.
