“…Bort det dunkla sinnet flyr,
När min huge hemåt styr.
Det som var, är icke mer,
Nu jag enbart framåt ser.”


After a long time of writing and recording I’m now starting to come closer to a finished album. The name of the album will as I’ve mentioned carry the name of Dauðra Dura - The Doors of Death. Here is a small teaser of what you might expect.

On Friday (28th August 2015) Queen Silvia, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia opened the exhibition: “Clothes for a Princess - The Lilian Look!” at the Royal palace.

The exhibition displays several different types of garments - evening dresses and costumes but also hats and bags - and is divided into six categories: weddings, family celebrations, entertainment, Nobel, inaugurations, charity and last but not least, humor.

In memory of Princess Lilian, who would have turned 100 years on August 30th, the exhibition will open at the Royal Palace on Saturday 29 August.

Норвегия 2015, день первый ч. 2: из Бергена в Ставангер, эпопея с автобусами в Ставангере и как выспаться в кемпинге Мусванген

Итак, в прошлый раз мы остановились перед дилеммой: билет есть, но тогда надо торчать бог знает сколько на автовокзале (напомню, с рюкзаками-палатками не хотелось шататься по городу). Что же делать, как нам быть? =D

Расскажу теперь: 

  • как попасть из Бергена в Ставангер и как менять билет на автобус в другое время? 
  • что за ерунда с билетами на автобусы в самом Ставангере?
  • как добраться до кемпинга Мосвангер и как в нем выспаться?

Kirchlinteln in Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony), Northern Germany is a town 6 km from Verden and 40 km from Bremen. It’s surrounded by the Linteln Geest, which is dominated by woods, hills, heath, and small villages. Within the last decades many people decided to build a home here or to buy old cottages in the region because of its picturesque landscape and its location close to Bremen and Hannover. The town belonged to the Prince-Bishopric of Verden, established in 1180. In 1648 the Prince-Bishopric was transformed into the Principality of Verden, which was first ruled in personal union by the Swedish Crown - interrupted by a Danish occupation (1712–1715) - and from 1715 on by the Hanoverian Crown. The Kingdom of Hanover incorporated the Principality in a real union and the territory became part of the new Stade Region, established in 1823.

On Thursday (27th August 2015) Crown Princess took part in the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce World Trading 2015 and handed out the “Export Hermes” award.

World Trade Day 2015 was about how Stockholm can be strengthened as a financial center. The World Trade Day brings the Swedish Chambers of Commerce abroad, leading experts, representatives of politics and business together.
Since 1981, the “Export Hermes” award is presented to Swedish companies that perform the remarkable export efforts and thereby helped to put Sweden on the map.
The prize is awarded by the Fund for Export Development that works to encourage Swedish enterprise to increased export efforts.
