First sailing of the 2015 season.. After sorting out the new roller furler and doing some final adjustments, finally time to head out for a short test run.. Everything worked nicely, and we enjoyed a light breeze under clear blue skies..

Rented a road bicycle for the weekend and enjoyed the nice April weather.. If you're thinking about doing some rides on the islands, this might give you a decent view of how it's like..

XC-Skating on 4 lakes in Sörmland with Emil: Yngern, Sjundasjön, Klämmingen and Lake Mälaren at the Gripsholm Castle.. Ice conditions not great but still enjoyable.. Low pace, I'm just recovering from a major cold..

A short XC-skating session on Lake Yngern in Södermanland.. Decent ice, but unfortunately the snow started falling, hopefully it will melt away quickly.. Anyways, nice place, I'll be back..

Fantastic XC-skating on clear ice in early January.. Me, Edward and Magnus headed to the lakes Gisslaren and Southern and Northern Vällen in Uppland, Roslagen.. In conditions like this few sports can match.. Happy day!

First XC-session for the season, where we headed to Tämnaren and Vendelsjön in northern Uppland.. Sunny day and around -2C.. Rather thin ice on Tämnaren so we progressed with great care.. More stable conditions on Vendelsjön where we could increase the pace a fair bit..

Saturday diving with Dive Systems on Malta, 29th of November 2014.. We visited the two scuttled wrecks "Tugboat Rosie" and "P29 Patrol Boat" at Cirkewwa.. Cloudy day so a bit dark down on 30+ meters.. Sea temperature is now around 19C.. The other divers were doing a wreck diving course so I had a look around and inside the boats myself, filming with my GoPro Hero 3+ and a new telescopic GoPole stick..

A light scramble down into the Xaqqa Seacliffs ravine, for some snorkeling and freediving in the calm and clear waters below.. Decent amount of sea-life and a nice 24 C water temperature..

Saturday sports climbing with the Malta Climbing Club at Cobra Cave.. A location where the routes are new and the cave offered nice shade around noon.. Did a couple of 6A+ routes and got pumped pretty much immediately, I need to do this much more often.. But regardless, nice training and great company on a sunny day!

Sunday diving on the Um El Faroud wreck at Wied iz Zurrieq / Blue Grottos on Malta.. 1st dive was pretty regular, mostly on the outside with some quick swim-throughs, on the second dive we explored the inner parts of the boat, heading down into the engine room etc. Max depth was close to 35 meters with a dive time of about 40 minutes total. Mid-September but still around 25 C sea temperature.

We have reached end of summer and autumn just around the corner.. We had a great sailing weekend with my Bellona 23 in Roslagen.. Wind was around 4-7 m/s most of the time, perfect for relaxed cruising..

A pretty bad video of the Um el Faroud Wreck :-) Visibility was unusually poor due to winds whipping up sand and sediment, and we didn't make any proper swim-throughs at this dive.. But regardless, one of the better wrecks around Malta, I'be been there 3 or 4 times before and it's always enjoyable..

Sunday paddle with my Kona Cruiser 12.6 inflatable paddle board.. Started in Gnejna Bay and went back and forth a few times to Golden Bay, with a couple of stops to swim and free-dive among the rocks.. At least 25C in the water and 30C in the air..
