Party People

 

Valborg, people go out and pretend to celebrate one of the old kings of Sweden when they actually just want to party.

I can't wait until I can lay a blanket on the ground and look up to the sky and just feel a sense of peace.

Persian New Year

The apple - symbolizing beauty and health

The apple - symbolizing beauty and health

Sale 1388 mobarak! I hope that this year will be filled with happiness and success for all of you! So it’s been a while, how have you guys been? I’ve been busy with college/work/life in general.

I’ll try to update the site more often now that the weather is better and I’ve got a new camera (Nikon D60) since I thought the old one didn’t seem very professional (Olympus FE300). Don’t know if the photos will be better since the photographer is still the same ;).

Set Sail

Barken Viking at the Gothenburg harbour.

Barken Viking at the Gothenburg harbor.

The Viking better known under her Swedish name as Barken Viking is a four-masted steel barque which was built in 1906 by Burmeister & Wain in Copenhagen, Denmark.

She came permanently to Gothenburg in 1950 as a home for different shipping institutions and later as a school of seamanship. Today she is moored in the Gothenburg guest harbour as hotel “Barken Viking”. The owner is Liseberg amusement park.

There are only ten four-masted barques and one four-masted full-rigged ship (the Falls of Clyde) in existence and only five of these still sail and because of the low bridges that separate the tall ship from the open sea it’s hard to believe she will sail the seas ever again.
