Down memory lane


Let’s go back about 5 years. I was scrolling down a long way in my feed this morning and I thought it would be fun sharing some memories with you guys.
It’s only screen shots but that’s ok I hope.

Pic 1 From our time in Australia 2012.
Here I am together with my sister in law celebrating Australia day.
Pic 5.
When a lock smith had to come and undo the garage door, I accidently left the keys inside the garage.
Embarrassing cause we lived in a van in Jake’s brothers garage at that time. Lan lord ddn’t even know we stayed there. OBS!
Pic 6. The van. Our bedroom in the garage, gosh I loved living like a gypsy. So damn free.
Pic 9. We were always playing monopoly. / Mir 1-0 Jake
Pic 10. Jake & I at a festival +49 degrees in the sun that day. It was so hot my legs were in pain from the heat.
Pic12. Sydney opera house and me drinking my last coffee before heading out to Thailand.

This screen shot above is mostly Bondi beach, litterally just outside our door step.
More festival pictures. Autumn 2012.

My first week back in Sydney seeing my man after 7 months apart.Can’t explain that feeling really. Happiness is an understatement.
Pic 1. I had a mint green cruiser seen in the first pic to the left.
Pic 2. Jake and the van, when it died just outside the mental home.

We were stuck for few hours, weird feeling.

Pic 5 to 9. Autumn vintage market with lots of cider in the sun.

Start of 2013.When our travels started.
We started off in Bangkok. Remember how much fun it was to be back.The need for harem pants were really big, this time I saved all orders in my journal so I could manage to keep track on every request.

So many wanted them in the same colours for kids and grown ups. Fun memories..
After Bangkok we headed up to Chiang Mai and adopted an elephant each, for one day only. Great day. Amazing and huge animal.

We spent 2 weeks in Cambodia. Many hours spent on the bumpy roads there.
Insanly hot weather, and a lot of poor people.
We went shopping in the supermarkets and bought as much as we could and handed out food by the roads. It was very corrupt, the police stopped us and said we had no lights at the moped, which was a lie, cause it was working but he forced us to pay money. If I don’t remember wrong he wanted U.S dollars. We payed. Couldn’t do or say anything really..

Back in Bangkok again – shipping harem pants like crazy, even got updates from Sweden with kids wearing them. SO cute.
We mostly went shopping at the night markets, ate delicious food, treated us daily with massages, sun bathing at the roof top pool. Nothing much but enjoying life.

You can’t travel forever so in April I got back to Varberg. 300 pants shipped with the post. Sat outside my apartment selling them on Sundays, and brought a few to the hotel. The spa ladies were thrilled.
I got a job as a restaurant manager at Spis & Deli.
It looks like I ddn’t wear anything else but those pants. Haha!

Kristin had a few as well, black elephant pattern and orange/red coloured ones and purple flower patterns if I don’t remember too wrong.

Jake where back home in England for a while since he’s been away for 3 years.
Lucky me he came to me in Sweden over midsummer, and then he was back here mid july.
He decided then he’s gonna move over. So he left England for me. Shit I’m a lucky gurl.

Said and done, in August he came and stayed.
5.5 years later we’re expecting our first baby.
Lots of things happend since and I’m forever grateful for all the joy it’s been.

Cheers for what’s next.
