The flat

March 30, 2009

We have  borrowed a flat in “Söder” in Stockholm from our friend Danyal. It´s a lovely newly renovated flat and it is starting to feel like home. There weren´t any furniture there though so we had to improvise.

Here i´m desinfecting our exclusive guitar case dinner table.

What the flat does have is a cool gas stove that we´ve been playing around with. I have to go, Mr X will soon wake up and demand his milk.

Getting to know Stockholm..

March 28, 2009

Well i´ve never been in Stockholm this long before but now when we are living here for three weeks i´m starting to see the things i missed out on when passing through all these years. I made a list:

  1. People are kind and helpful
  2. Taxi drivers are really helpful
  3. It´s fun to be a “Latte father” in Stockholm (many coffee places here even though I don´t drink it that much)
  4. Two of my closest friends live here and (one of them just got a baby girl and the other takes me to the gym)
  5. The Pizzerias are great (not the average “Svenne fettplatta” here no. Nice thin and crispy bottoms)
  6. You ride free of charge on the buses if you have a pram with you. (with a child in it)

I´m sure I will add to this list as we proceed. Curious to see if there will be any negative impressions, so far so good..

Leaving for Stockholm..

March 28, 2009

As i´m writing this we have actually been here for a couple of days already. The trip to Stockholm went well. I found myself sitting next to a four and a half mounth old kid that was heading for Stockholm as well. We asked him if he wanted to go on tour with us and he gladly accepted.

I found him, he´s mine.

Turns out that the little fella loves trains. Maybe I´ll buy him one soon.

We are in Stockholm to rehears for three weeks. Per and the band that is, but I will also try my songs a couple of times with the right gear and everything. Pics from the rehearsals will follow soon.

When your going on tour for over a month you need to bring quite a few things with you. Pew, no gym needed today.

This spring I will be the opening act on Per Gessle´s (the man from Roxette) European tour.

The blog will give you a good idea of what it´s like being on tour and I will add personal stuff never seen on the web. My goal is to write and post pictures through the whole tour. I don´t know I will succeed since this is the first time i´m blogging but if you spread the word, it will centainly keep me going.

Since my native tounge is Swedish and due to the fact that i´m half Polish, this blog will be written in English so that all the international fans (soon to join) also can enjoy this unique internet happening. Don´t forget to comment as much as you can. (You know, missspeliings and so on).

Enjoy!
