Åland and Sweden trip

Finally I was able to travel again for work.

It was to a exhibition in Mariehamn, Åland. The same place as 2019 but then it was durring spring and of course the weather was better.

When it was decided that I should do this trip I asked a friend of myself since soon 40 years if he as well was planning to visit the same exhibition.

Another Piece in our Jigsaw

A bit more than a year ago we wrote about our plan to refit Luna Azzurras’s salon.

Instead of the bench, which we never use, we wanted to replace it with a cupboard. Back then we had the self-made blueprint and were looking for a carpenter.

Well, we successfully accomplished this project!

A Sustainable Cell Phone

I URGENTLY needed a new cell phone!

The one I had so far is an iPhone 6, which I inherited from Patrik several years ago. And this summer it simply shattered… 🥴

It still took me some time to accept that I do need a new cell phone (“but, it still works…”). Erm… no, there was simply no way around it! *grumble*

Luckily, I stumbled over “Revendo”, though.

Sailing Portoferraio – Loano 2021

The sun was shining and the waves were finally comfortable enough for a smooth passage. Even the winds were well-disposed to us, so we hoisted the genoa. Around eleven o’clock we were passing the canal between Elba, heading to the mainland, with waves no more than 1.20m high. It was really nice down-wind sailing! ⛵

High – Higher – Highfield

This is our new dinghy, a brand-new Highfield CL 260! Boy, are we proud 🤗

Since our old one gave up this summer (R.I.P.), it was clear we needed to buy a new one. The brand didn’t matter so much, but it had to have an aluminium bottom. Plus the price should be reasonable. Plus it had to be mint-green…haha, just kidding (would have been nice, though…). Even a good second hand one would have been OK. But no luck there, as it turned out.

It’s Saturday, 7th August, 09.00 a.m., and we’re more than ready to switch Portoferraio for Rosignano Solvay! Arrivederci, Elba!
