Turist in my own town 

It is great to have guests from out of town! A couple of weeks ago our good friends from 4REST came for a few days and gave me a chance to show what I love about Stockholm and to be a tourist in my own town! And though we often have guests from far away I must confess that I never do all the turist-stuff with them. I can provide a map, a access card and my phone number in case they get arrested..

A Peugeot 5008, lets see if it survives our adventure!

 

Cheers!

Keep Your Children Safe in the Car!

Planing this trip to Poland is a blessing! I have found many good practical solutions to numerous everyday problem. One of them is car safety.

As you might have noticed safety recommendations are a bit different around the world. The legislators want to keep the recommendations to the minimum it seems to make it easier for the producers of safety equipment. In Sweden though the recommendations are more rigorous than the rest of Europe (World?). I want to share this information with you because I didn’t realize how important little adjustment can have to save our children’s life. Because even though we are the best drivers in the world (right?) and would never cause an accident, maybe our fellow drivers are not as good as we think we are.
