Stockholm Skyline – A Bird Eye View From The Ericsson Globe Skyview

Just looked through some photos from last year and stumbled over these from October 2012, when me and my fiancé went up the sky with The Ericsson Globe Skyview. 130 m above sea level. Scary, but what a view! 🙂

7 interesting things about myself (ehum…):

  1. When I go to the liquor store I have to show my Id-card because they seem to think I am under aged, i.e. under 20. Well, that was 12 years ago now, but hey – I’m happy to look that young! 😉
  2. I grew up in a small village in south east of Sweden, population 4 000.
  3. Despite the fact I am now working as a swimming teacher, I was terrified of water as young and didn’t learn to swim until I was 14 years old.
  4. I was a tomboy when I was a child. Grew up with brothers, played with boys or other tomboys. But despite that fact, my favourite toy was Barbie and I have tons of them!
  5. My maternal grandmother is my role model. She was a genuine woman. Naive in a way, but totally kind-hearted.
  6. I really love running/jogging, it’s my favourite sport.
  7. I’m short, but my brothers are tall. When I was younger I had complex about my height, but now I must say I prefer being short! My height? 157 cm. One of my brothers are 187 cm… 😉

Inspirational Song

Håkan Hellström’s new song, “Det kommer aldrig va över för mig”. A bit of The Cure from the mid-80’s, and I like it!

 

Mio My Mio, the song that never gets old

10 Feb

The first song I remember I loved as a child. I was only 6 years old when it came out in 1987, but still have the vinyl single! Still love the song and gives me the chills especially when listening to it in my native language. The song is preformed by Karin Glenmark, singer of the group Gemini, and written by Björn & Benny of the Swedish group ABBA (Who is also famous for writing the music to CHESS – the musical). Never saw the movie, but the book was one of the first books I read myself as a young child. I love Astrid Lindgren’s books. Btw, at the bottom I gave a translation to the Swedish version, it’s a little different from the English one.

English version:

 

Swedish version:

 

Through the garden of roses, with its silver poplars – I’m walking with my father, holding his hand so tight. And from the highest tree I hear a lonely bird – singing about the cruel Land of Faraway. And my heart is trembling when I hear my father’s voice: Mio my Mio.

The night falls at the garden of roses, and I can see my bird taking off towards the sky. It flies straight to the sky on its wide wings. (He’s) flying towards the dark Land of Faraway. And my heart is trembling when I hear my father’s voice: Mio, my Mio. Mio my Mio.
