Pegutten som kämpade!

Tja vad kan man säga om våran lilla bil med den lilla lilla motorn.
Uppför berg, ner för dalar...
Här är en liten sammanfattning om vart den lilla svarta faran
tog oss och med mig bakom ratten, Stina som kartläsare!

Farligt farligt men oförklarligt ta det varligt ;-)

Earth laughs in flowers...


A morning without coffee...

... is like sleep.

I mandags efter lite bad o sol o vila tog vi o bilade in till Aten. Igen. Genom tullen, rondellen, kaosartadrusningstrafik och traffade Joana och ett en massa facebooktanter. Vi promenerade langs plakan och fikade pa torget med utsikt over Akropolis.

Coffee with the girls was very nice. Fun meeting new people in this warm and beautiful country.

Many kisses from Greece


Swedish meatballs!

På lördag hade vi i Grekland en svenskinspirerad fest med köttbullar, potatis, potatisgratäng, svampomelett, kallskuret, kladdkaka, snacks, jordgubbar i choklad, vin, öl, kaffe osv osv. Lite blandat från jul, påsk o midsommar. Allt framdukat på Ikea-fat med ikea-ljus i det ikea-inspirerade hemmet =) De tyckte vi gjort det så fint att vi borde satsa på att bli professionella inrednings/party-designers. Heh.

Det blev jättebra! Mycket uppskattat. Vi var ett internationellt bord med amerikanska Tom, grekiska familjen med Joana, Lambros, Lara och Dimitris och så svenska Stina och Sofi. Mycket prat blev det. Folket åkte hem vid halv ett, och vi lade oss vid två-tiden.

Opa from Greece

Sofi and Stina

Vi ar framme i Grekland.

...efter en valdigt lang resa. Timmar efter timmar pa flygplats, taget upp och en flygresa senare och vi chillar pa en vacker terass med utsikt over havet nagra meter nedanfor. Vi har kort bil, atit ute, missat stangningstiden pa Grekiska Lidl och nu ar vi hemma hos Joana infor Eurovision Song Contest.

I'll update later when I have the time.

Just wanted to let you know we're alive.

Sofi and Stina in Greece

Flying medicine

Lunch break and a lot to think about...

How will we solve this problem??

I need my medicine to make the trip pleasant!

So here is my small problem...
I´m going to rent a car at the airport of Athens
My dear hostess and her hubbie will be there and meet us and
aid us in getting a car, hopefully an automatic. They are wounderfully easy to drive!

But will I be sober enough to drive??

Hmmm... moral dilemma,
or a legal dilemma,, what's the law in Greece?
Can I twinkle with my eyes so my dear sister will drive the 7 km?
Or will Stina be kind and cool enough to say - Hi mom, of course I'll drive *L*
The question will answer itself when we arrived in Greece.
Promise to tell =)


Athens the town of sports

As you know Athen was the long-time capital of the Olympic games a long time ago. 

When I visited Athens last year I hoped to see alot of Greek Gods in miniskirts
in the new Olympic Games stadium, but that weekend I didn´t see any athlets like that

Oooo, almost forgot, I did however see A LOT of guys in skirts *happy smile*
but they also had guns and only had eyes for the Parlament...

so NO WAY I could've made a move to flirt with them...  

So what is the most popular sport in the town full of sport history and traditions??

I´m not a sport fanatic but one thing I know, the people of Greece
don´t run to the stadium for Olympic games, they run to see.....

...Football !!

When football games are playing in Greece all other activitets stop!
Just like in our country when it´s hunting week for moose *lmao*
or icehockey and so on.

So back to Athens. There are 2 major teams and like the two gigant newpappers in Sweden
, Aftonbladet or Expressen... you support one of them...
Me and Stina talked about what is the most beautiful coulors...
That´s what I know about football... 
The green ones or the red ones...


So as with women (when we buy a car) we go for the coulor. And.
I like Green!
