Summer is here and we will try to do some more blogging 🙂
Unfortunately we have had another long pause. I guess the past month has been too busy and we have not had the time to write as much as we would have liked. We have still been cooking though, but when there is less time our dishes become less extravagant 😉
So, a short recap of what we have been up to might be good. I (Sofi) have just finished work for the summer. I work as a teacher and now I have a whole long summer vacation to look forward to 🙂 Jason has to work for a few more weeks but then we are going on a long holiday together. We will go to England first for a few days and then we are off to Korea with my sister and her boyfriend. They are joining us for the first part of our holiday. We are going to Seoul first and then will travel to both Busan and Jeju. We hope that we can share some exciting food experiences when we are there. It truly is a different type of cuisine than what we are used to.
We went to Korea 2 years ago together and after coming back we both felt like there was so much more to see. So we are really looking forward to going back 🙂 If you are curious about Korea we think you should keep reading the blog and we will share our experiences.
The past few weeks have been a lot about exercising. The week after we came back from Italy we ran the Gothenburg Half Marathon. I found it really tough, much tougher than I expected it to be. I have run the distance only once before. I enjoyed the experience and I will definitely run it again next year. Jason is a bit more uncertain because he felt it took too much time to train for it and he wants to focus more on his cycling.
The weekend after Jason’s sister Jasmine was here to visit us. The whole weekend was spent cycling 🙂 We are all doing the Ride London-Surrey 100 in August. Jason has cycled it twice and I did it last year, although a shorter distance due to heavy rain. The ride is 160 km and starts in London. You then cycle around Surrey and finish at the Buckingham Palace. It was a great ride and I am really looking forward to cycling it again.
On Friday we cycled to Kullavik. The weather was perfect and it was nice to show Jasmine one of the places we really like cycling to. On Saturday we went to a hill in Gothenburg to do some hill repeats, and then had a nice gluten-free dinner and face masks!
Jasmine is gluten intolerant so we also made some gluten-free bars that we could take on the ride on Sunday. On Sunday we went for a long ride, 100 km in the wind. We cycled north and had a nice stop for coffee and sandwiches (gluten-free in Jasmine’s case, of course).
The week after Jason took part in a cycling race here in Gothenburg. He has wanted to start racing and this year he will try to participate in a few races. He raced in the sports class. I went to watch and got to see him finish second, so proud 🙂 ❤
Last weekend my friend Linnea came to visit us for the weekend. We have been friends for a long time and met my first year at university. That was a long time ago, 12 years to be exact 🙂 We have not lived in the same place for many years but we are still as close friends as we have always been. We just spent the weekend hanging out with our other friend Alexandra, eating and drinking.
This weekend is the midsummer weekend in Sweden and we are going down to Skåne to see my parents and my siblings. Hopefully we can get some cycling in as well.
We hope you have a great weekend and there will be an update next week of course 🙂
