I was curious about the story post option so here’s a mushroom that I found yesterday. What do you think of the story post?
I had some trouble getting started with this segment of the route, as I was worried about hiking in the heatwave. Sure, it’s cooler in the forest, but I still … Continue reading Upplandsleden 2: Hummelmora > Kallhällbadet
The planned distance was just over 9 km and I ended up at 11.5 km due to missing the trail a few times. It was just about 2.5 hours of walking, mostly due to stopping to figure out where the trail actually was – or to deal with mosquitos. There were lots of mosquitos.

I also get to travel quite a bit, to different conferences and to meet my colleagues all over the world. I’ll focus on a day at home (just outside of Stockholm, Sweden), because the other days are anything but typical.
