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..

Scuba Diving on Malta with guide & guests from Dive Systems on the Um el Faroud Wreck and at Ghar Lapsi.. Nice, sunny day in the middle of October, around 26C in the air and 22-25C in the water.. The pretty fish with big wings to fend off larger predators is a "Flying gurnard". Camera man: Jarl - Buddy: Edward

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..

A great Saturday with Dive Systems, taking a nice dive boat to Comino.. First dive was on the Cominetto reef, which was ok but nothing special IMHO.. Lunch & rest break in the busy Blue Lagoon.. Second dive, featured on this video was really nice though, the P-31 wreck is starting to settle in after being scuttled some years back.. Around 31C in the air and 21C in the water, summer is coming on Malta..

First sailing weekend with the new Bellona 23.. On Saturday afternoon we left the harbour in Uddhamn after a couple of hours of work on the boat.. We motored up to the southern lee side of Lambskär and stayed the night.. On Sunday the sun was shining and the wind was blowing with a fresh breeze, so great conditions to try out the new sails and get familiar with the characteristics of the hull..

Headed out solo for some winter magic on Lake Mälaren.. Started at Varpsund in the southern end of Ryssviken and headed north up towards Gorran and then back the same route.. About 25% of the trip was on skis and the other 75% on skates.. The ice was 10+ cm with some 5-8 cm of wet snow on top..

Headed a fair bit South-west to lake Hjälmaren in search for clear ice with Jon & Magnus.. We had good fortune once again and enjoyed great conditions.. We started at Norra Fiskeboda, and passed Edet, Tåken and Vinön Before making a loop South and then back.. If the weather holds we hope to try out the archipelago next weekend..

After a longer period of sub-zero temperatures, which (unfortunately?) was also accompanied by a lot of snow, Jon, Magnus and myself headed to the lakes of Gisslaren and Vällen in Northern Uppland.. Good fun to skate in the powder, but one has to take care on the ice beneath, frequently checking the conditions and thickness..
