The Instagram Curse

One thing that happened since I got my iPhone is that my camera (momentarily) got pushed aside and doesn't get to come along on daily excursions anymore ...
I never got back from France with so little pictures! (but here's a few anyway :))

Either way, I did get back, and although there's a huge temperature difference between France and Sweden and the sun has gone into hiding ...
It's good to be home!!

Sweet as Honey

Seriously beautiful work by Lisa Ferber.
There's loads more cool stuff on her website,
but this music video is my favourite.
A pure invitation to start beekeeping.

I think I'm an island person ...

Yesterday we discovered a hidden gem:
l'île de Porquerolles, one of the so called "Golden Islands", just off the coast of Toulon.

If you ever want to get away from traffic, this is the place to go, as the only people you have to share the roads with are hikers and mountainbikers.

Mum remarked that the biking felt a lot like downhill skiing at times, but without the ski lifts for the uphill parts.
I think we did an amazing job balancing the sporty bit and the lazing on the beach bit (intense birdwatching included)
and those peaches were a great reward after all the effort!

There's something fascinating about islands ... I can't put my finger on it, but I love it!
