Finally, we have achieved the holy trinity of having time, inspiration and remembering to write our third and final post about our Hawaii trip we undertook at the end of last decade.
After our packed stays on Big Island and Kauai, where we stayed in 5 different places in 10 days, we had planned for a more relaxing stay in Honolulu, Hawaii’s state capitol on the island of O’ahu. Continue reading “Hawaii – O’ahu”
The other day we tried to recreate a saffron/orange biscotti recipe we made many years ago. Our original source was this (non-vegan) book . Here we merged it with a vegan biscotti recipe from minimalist baker, tweaked it and changed the flavors. Also made it gluten free. Continue reading “Saffron biscotti (gluten free)”
After our stay on Big Island, we continued on to Kauai, the oldest public island of Hawaii – also known as the garden island.

This year we have been married for 10 years (!). In order to celebrate, we decided to go somewhere we would never have dreamed of visiting, Hawaii. Located far, far from Sweden, it seemed like one of those destinations not made for us when we lived there. But luckily enough, we now live a lot closer, so we decided that this is the place to go when you’ve been married for a decade. After doing our research we decided to visit 3 islands and spend a total of 2 weeks there. Continue reading “Hawaii – Big Island”
It turns out Georgette is a great room mate. When she got invited to a wedding Grenada, she picked Moah as her +1. For fairness, we obviously needed to extend the trip and add another country so Henrik could join as well… And that’s how we almost died in Trinidad.

This vegan cashew “cream cheese” is simply amazing and surprisingly easy to make. Just takes a few minutes here and there and 48 h waiting. Start on Wednesday and it will be ready for weekend breakfast. Continue reading “Cashew “cream cheese””
We’re back in Toronto after our first adventure race. A brutal experience but incredibly rewarding. Tough and challenging but in the most magnificent environment. Verdant forests, rolling hills, late summer fields and open pastures. When we weren’t too exhausted and falling asleep, we made sure to enjoy the race, scenery and weather. Continue reading “Pain in Spain”
Our adventure race will start in less than 96 h and we are almost ready to leave Canada. This post details some of our last preparations and solutions. Continue reading “96 h to start”
In just a month we will be flying to Spain to join another Swedish couple, Karin & Martin, to participate in our very first adventure race. A race we signed up to early this year without really knowing what we were getting into. This close to the race, we have picked up on our research, shopping and training and we are getting ready. Continue reading “Adventure Race in Spain”
Somehow, 2018 turned into a year of races for us. Two weeks ago, we finished our first ever Olympic Triathlon in downtown Toronto. This sound like it would be the peak of a racing year but not this year. In October, we’re going to Spain for a 72 h adventure race. Continue reading “2018 – the year of races”
