Other - shorter - trips around Europe

Poland

During Easter 2000 I was with a few friends in Svinutchi. Who would have thought actually have beaches and weather that can compete with Spain at this time of year - or maybe we were just lucky...

Sailing in Denmark

This picture is from the summer of 2000 but actually I sail a week or so every summer with my parents. A truly relaxing experience if not we are sailing more than 10 km/hour because then my dad go crazy !!!

Sweden

I lived in this country for a year. This picture is taken with a few Danish friends and is from the opening of the Danish-Swedish bridge, Øresundsbroen. Furtunately I am now back in good old Copenhagen, so in a way this pic is quite symbolic...

England

May 2000 I participated in a meeting in Windsor. This pic is taken along the castle and on it can be seen my friend Erik who I visited in Amsterdam (see below)

 

 

Spain

In May 2001 I was in Madrid with my new - and now former - collegues. This place is from some square that looks quite nice. But I still prefer Barcelona (got that Silvia?)

Lapland

In October 2001 I was on what I think is the best work related trip ever. Paid by the Finnish Tourist Board I and a gang of people from all over Europe were visiting and doing different stuff in Lapland for almost a week. On this picture are people from Denmark (!), Poland, Spain (ok, I admit it, Barcelona), Rusia, Germany and Finland. And believe it or not, we are much prettier when we're not rafting !!!

Here we're fishing - or rather trying 'cos we didn't catch anything. But the "Ruska" still looks nice...

A (male) reindeer. Possibly one of the coolest animals on the planet, this animal is the answer to a stoned Jamaican. Really a cool and groovy animal, just look at the way they walk!!!

Laidback Husky dogs at a huge farm with more than 300 dogs...

In front of some Lapland lake. Sure looks nice, doesn't it (Hope that is enough, Finnish Tourist Board)

Of course we also had to drink vodka and swim in a 5 degree lake (celcius that is) - after all we were in Finland...

Amsterdam

Sailing on the river and also looking kinda trashed. Yep, we had a nice evening the day before...

A thing u have 2 do in Amsterdam - or so my dad convinced me - is 2 taste their raw herring. And believe me, they taste like shit, especially since the dirty lady in the background prepared the fish with her bare hands. So now you are warned if you ever happen to see this fish wagon...

Fyn - Denmark

Looking trashed at a music festival in August 2001. Among performing bands were Black Crowes, Tricky and Mel B. Most of the time I believe I looked a little bit better than this...
