Back in Beijing…

… and the sun is shining outside my office. To be honest, it happens more often than I thought it would. And while I’m back in the saddle, albeit slightly dazed and confused due to the lack of sleep from tonight’s flight over from Singapore, hubby & daughter just boarded flight number two out of three.

Come fly with me

back in Beijing after a couple of days back home. Yes, it’s confusing, I have two places that I call home. One where my family is, which is not dependent on a specific spot and then the country to which I belong. After having lived abroad for such a long time it sometimes gets confusing […]

Sweden vs Norway – it’s a love hate relationship. ❤️

Truth be told we say very bad jokes about each other on a regular basis. Hey, we’re neighbours, it’s supposed to be like that. It’s usually friendly ranting though and both sides do it so there’s no “big brother bullying” going on… 😳 But there’s is one area where we are completely serious and take […]

Who needs IKEA – this is Sweden promotion at its best. 

At almost (if not all)every international school we’ve experienced throughout the world there’s an “International Day” designed to teach kids about different countries and cultures. It’s usually a very appreciated day for the students. It’s also the day I get to dress up my daughter in a Sweden costume! 👏🏻 She didn’t look overly excited this […]

Rebooting, please wait…

That’s how I feel at the moment if I’m honest. Thing is, I’m heading back home to Stockholm for a week for some competence development sessions and I’m not quite sure how much more I’ll be able to fit in my head. But I guess we’ll find out! After 20 years in the business I’m […]

A month. Really?

Not sure if it’s a joke or not but Tuesday marked a month already since we arrived to Beijing. Unbelievable. But at the same time, it feels like we’ve never been anywhere else. It’s a strange combination to be honest. I should all be new and confusing still but to be honest, who has the […]

Tooth extraction, mini-marathon and 14 days as a non-smoker. 

That sort of sums up this week’s happening in one single sentence. The tooth unfortunately belonged to my fantastic daughter whom in the end managed to get her teeth fixed. Like I wrote in my earlier post, it only too four tries before she found a dentist that understood her. And in the end, it […]
