Estelle's salute

A new princess is born in Sweden! For me it was the first time I got to experience the birth of a new royalty. During lunch time I went down to Strömkajen to see the salute for the new born that was made from Skeppsholmen. Normally 21 shots are fired but when a heir to the throne is born the shots are doubled.

Ipek in Sthlm!

Ipek came to Sweden!! She spent a weekend here with her boyfriend from England. It felt really strange to see her here in Stockholm, like in the wrong environment :)

Me and Cem invited them over for dinner and they got to taste a semla also. Hehe they wanted to bring a bottle of wine to dinner but was surprised that they couldn't find any at the local supermarket.

The road to work

I should really try to be more appreciative of my environment...

Cross-country skiing at Rösjön

Me and Cem on skis and Mum walking. The landscape was truly fantastic at Rösjön! And Cem is really getting better amd more secure in the tracks, so fun to see!

In Izmit to visit Cem's parents.

Brunch at Berns

Me, Mange and Claudia went to the famous Asian brunch buffet at Berns. It was expensive but definitely worth every penny. Oysters, sushi, dumplings and a huge table of deserts. We were feeling ill of fullness. Afterwards we went home to Mange home and inaugurated his balcony furniture for the season.

Istanbul fun!

With old (and a new) friends in Emre's apartment in Rumeli Hisarustu.
