So it happened that I found myself in Athens, Greece in March. First place to explore being Acropolis, the 'high city' with a history of more than 2500 years. Finally getting some use of learning the difference between doric and ionic columns in third year gymnasium, I made it to the top on a beautiful … Continue reading Acropolis
An online quiz walk with Twine
I created an online quiz walk tool yesterday. Quiz walks are popular in Sweden and I picked up how to use Twine in 2021. I wanted to see how an online tool could boost this fun activity and I tried it out on a quiz I did at Fredecon 2022.

True Happiness This Way Lies
So I quit my job. It was a good job, many positive things, but in the end it didn’t work out for me. It feels good. Too much uncertainty about my role.

The brand is strong but every politician or … Continue reading In the footsteps of Hans Christian Andersen

Last year I did framed prints for our own walls, this year I was thinking it could be fun to see if I could sell some. I like the process … Continue reading Sweden 2022
