Another year has passed

It is amazing how fast a year can pass. On the 13th of December we had some friends over for dinner and the subject of 2013 came up. We could all agree that it has passed by us while we have been thinking about other things. Well maybe not entirely true, because we have been extremely busy as usual, but somehow we now stand here at the end of the year and remember very little of what we have actually done.

So I thought I’d share some pictures with you so you can see what we have been up to, and maybe some pieces of the puzzle will fall in the right places for me too, memory  wise.

And I also want to take the opportunity to wish you all a very happy New Year’s Eve and a marvelous 2014!

Nominated again.

I got the happy news this week that the cava book is again nominated in the Gourmand awards. This time the swedish version, but still in the same category, “Best European wine book (except France)”.

This time the awards will be held in May in Bejing, during the Chinees book fair, and we can say already now that we will not go to represent at the award dinner. It is just a bit to far away.

But we are really happy that the book is nominated!

Sagrada Familia Finished!

One might wonder if Gaudi’s master pieces Sagrada Familia will be finished during our lifetime. Luckily we no longer have to wonder how it will look like, thanks to these animators.

If you have not seen this clip before I can just say one thing: get ready to be amazed!
