Book list :)

Tweet I don’t know if you remember, but a while ago (quite a long while ago) I posted a list of the 100 “best books of all time” according to a survey The Guardian had done…? A few days ago we went to Uppsala and took the opportunity to visit our favourite bookshop here in Sweden, the English bookshop that they have there. Upon arriving there we were at first a bit shocked; ’cause the shop was gone! Luckily though it wasn’t actually gone, it had only moved half a block or so, and it was now twice as big! … Continue reading

You’re all invited!

This years camp is meant to be an inspiring week for those who wish to, or already do, live their life outside of the rat race. A week to encourage and inspire each others, share ideas, and … Continue reading

Hot weather and strawberries

Tweet “Strawberries, and only strawberries, could now be thought or spoken of. “The best fruit in England – every body’s favourite – always wholesome. These the finest beds and finest sorts. Delightful to gather for one’s self – the only way of really enjoying them. Morning decidedly the best time – never tired – every sort of good – hautboys infinitely superior – no comparison – the others hardly eatable – hautboys very scarce – Chili preferred – white wood finest flavor of all – price of strawberries in London – abundance about Bristol – Maple Grove – cultivation – … Continue reading
