Todays bike ride experiment (finished) 

I've been home a while now.

It turned out to be a 108km ride at a comfortable pace. I must have brought just the right amount of water because I drank the two regular bottles and the insulated bottle had just enough left in it when I got home that I got a glass of ice water.

We've stopped at about two thirds of todays ride. These pictures are from a little while ago.

It's still warm today but not as hot as last week..

Slightly past the midwaypoint of todays adventure I'd guess.. But I don't actually know what the distance will be when we get back home..

I haven't made a trip like this in four or five years. I've wanted to every summer but never really planned to because I haven't had the opportunity.

Now the opportunity presented itself and we decided two days ago to just go for it.

This is very much an "I don't see why I wouldn't be able to" kind of day trip.

Passinng by a small town and decided to take our first actual break of today.

We're a little over a third of the way at 34km.

First stop of todays bike ride experiment.

Bike buddy had to do some slight maintenance.

Wow, is this place crowded. I'm at a restaurant and there are more people here than I've seen in a good while..

Funny Swedish amazon has two big issues

1. It's run by Amazon

2. It's in horrible Swedish
The (presumably automatic) translations are so bad that you often have to know English and then also a little about computer translation to turn it back to English before you know what you're looking at. The Swedish is some times grammatically off, some times nonsense and some times clear, but incorrect.

Today when I stumbled on they just gave up.

The other one is blooming. It's so nice looking 😊🎉🌻🌱

Apparently today is world emoji day.


I just played what I think is my best game ever of geoguessr. It's on a "local" map, but still..

I don't play this very often but I saw a speed run the other day and it is a fun game, even when you play it casually and don't pay for the subscription.

My bedroom is only 29°C.. My livingroom is 29,7 and the other rooms are in this range.

This isn't much of a problem but it's not really helping with doing a lot of stuff other than .

There's a thunderstorm passing right above us. It's so loud.

For the last little while I've been waking up between 7 and 9. I don't like it.

Today I made an effort to wake up earlier and I'm enjoying a wonderfull morning rain on the balcony. I got to see the street lights turn off at 5:20. Such a great start to the day 🙂☕


A shaded balcony lunch/dinner on a hot summer day. It doesn't get much better.

I just had a lovely little session. Now it's time for some laundry and then I think it'll be time for lunch. It's warm today but we're taking it slow and drinking lots.

Also: The first of the plants we bought this summer, that wasn't flowering when we bought them has started flowering over the .

They're so pretty!

Had fun roadtripping today, did a bunch of stuff 🙂

I should probably tag and mention the great service we get from @mastohost 👍👌
