Swedish Travel Tips

In one months time, I'll be on a plane, headed to Stockholm. "What, again?", I hear you ask. Since 2008, I have visited Sweden (in particular, Stockholm) on several occasions. By my reckoning, I’ve “lived there” for almost six months. I really like the country, have made some friends there, and whenever there's a few... Continue Reading →

Jonas Holmberg

Three or four years ago, I discovered the Swedish singer, Jonas Holmberg, and fell totally in love with his voice. I know it's a cliche, but he has the "voice of an angel", and he chooses such great tunes which are then beautifully orchestrated. As someone learning Swedish, I also love the fact he has...

Feeling Refreshed

"Most of the year we have a really very pleasant climate in Sydney", I argued to a colleague earlier today. "Except for two weeks in winter when we all bang on about how cold and wet it is, and two weeks in summer, when we can't stop complaining about how hot and humid it is",... Continue Reading →

Lucia in Sydney

Though the actual Saint Lucy's Day is December 13, every year the Swedish Church in Sydney presents the celebration a... Continue Reading →

Valborg 2013

This is Valborg, a pagan festival still happening each year in Sweden! This video was from 2013. I loved it, though it was a little bit warm, being so close to the fire. One of the things I love about this video is the combination of English (Australian and American) and Swedish, and the fact,... Continue Reading →

Melodifestivalen 2016

It was another early morning for me, up and out of bed to watch Melodifestivalen, the event which chooses the Swedish entry for the Eurovision Song Contest. A decade ago, I would have read the results online, and then waited several weeks for the DVD release, before I actually got to see the event itself.... Continue Reading →

Melodifestivalen 2016 #4

Martin has previously represented Sweden at Eurovision and was performing in a song co-written by his brother. Linda has previously entered Melodifestivalen, and has... Continue Reading →
