Day 323:Stormed through the final translation project.Took the Nissan Leaf back to the workshop and ordered one for the end of January.Completed my work and went to the gym to swim.Caught up on some correspondence and plodded on with photo editing.Worked on African safari itineraries for next year – looking good!The Beer Bohemian Rhapsody from CAP Brewery of Bro, Sweden.This is wonderful – I’m not sure it really is a Czech Pilsener in style but who cares when it tastes this good?
Day 337:It was a translation day today.Well, translation and cleaning – finally did my bit around the house.That felt good as it has been too long and gave Mari Anne a nice surprise after work.After dinner she made gingerbread which we paired with wine…It was also great with a Christmas beer, naturally.The Beer:Juleøl from Austmann of Trondheim, Norway.The bar is raised again – another superb Christmas beer from a regular store!
Day 14: A very long but very productive day at the Nordic Bloggers Experience event in Helsinki Finland today. Straight into the action with meetings and a packed conference programme. Finally came the traditional sauna night which was a wonderful way to end the day; smoke saunas to swimming in a hole in the frozen water then sauna again. Only light beer on offer today but that was probably just as well as we’d have passed out from anything stronger. Light beer by Olvi, Finland
Day 166:Diary entry: Not the most productive of days, this one.Struggled to make progress on all fronts. Had two translation projects to finish and was finally done with both at 11 pm or so. Broke for a walk in the rain to get some fresh air – at 10 pm. Sometimes that’s the way it goes – tomorrow is another day…the beer was good, at least :-) The Beer: Interrail Pale from Trondhjem Mikrobryggeri of Trondheim, Norway, 4.7%. Another good one from the old hands at Trondhjem Mikrobryggeri.
Day 171:Diary Entry:Suddenly, it actually felt like summer at last. Woke up to beautiful sunny weather and blue skies.I decided to go walking in the hills.Had a fantastic yomp up Øyberget in Melhus without meeting another soul – gotta love Norway!The Beer:Røde Toner (Red Tones) from Ego Brygghus, Fredrikstad, Norway, 4.7% A lovely amber ale from Ego, who also have failed to disappoint so far and I have no expectations that they will do so. High quality beer from an excellent brewery!
