Back from Sweden

After an eventful weekend we are all back in the freezing cold.... Landed on Keflavik yesterday at 1600 and it looked like the same weather as in Sweden, but it was so cold that me and Danni almost froz to death looking for the car in the parkinglot..... Good thing we were of viking-descent or it could have gone really bad.

Anyway, Swedentrip cronologically:

1. Wake up after 1.5 hour sleep (I never can sleep when i am gonna travel)
2. Get happy Bjørg and tired Danni
3. Drive to Keflavik
4. Listen to the new and evil Bjørg (Lets talk slowly to the goju-people)
5. Meet the sleepy crowd at 0600
6. Check in
7. Listen to Gusta lay down a kissing-ban on the trip.
8. Shop
9. Get video of Bjørg going crazy....
10. Watch Gusta get "flightready"..... (She is funny....)
11. Fly in great weather and see lots of cool nature.
12. Land at Arlanda (with a crazy pilot)
13. Taxi to hotel (which icelanders described as so "homy", that the didnt need shoes)
14. Check out downtown Stockholm (Pretty buildings, painful knee)
15. Girls went shopping, boys waited..... (a lot...)
16. Åsa has had too much Powerade..... (again...)
17. Pizza restaurant
18. Sauna and socializing
19. Very tired, sleep.
20. Saturday: Breakfast, walk to competition, register, get info and get rocking.
21. Incredibly well organised competition with 570 contestants. Not a glitch anywhere. Wow.
22. Girls are officially into foreigners..... Germany, England, Norway..... (A)
23. Back to hotel, out for chinesefood.
24. Sensible people go to sleep at around 0100 and less than sane people have too much Powerade and stays up to about 0700......
25. Breakfast, packing, taxi to Arlanda, nice flight home. Congrats to Gusta for flying without getting excessivly funny. (Now u see you can fly without getting very worried.
26. Taxfree in Iceland is way cheaper than abroad so delay shopping until u get here.

Almost forgot a couple of important points: Gunni knows a short and rare version of Empi.... And somebody should tell icelanders to wear shoes in the hotel..... (Or atleast clothes....)

Anyway, thanks to Gunni, Gusta, Andri, Anton, Heida, Dagny, Kristjan, Isak, Danni, Åsa, Tommi and Bjørg for making this a fun weekend. You all saw some amazing kata and know what to do to improve upon this years performance in 2007.

This trip was GREAT :-)!! The competition was amazing and that i wasnt tierd at all after watching karate 4 nine hours from small kids 2 adults is really good. We were a great group that supported each other by being at the competition the whole time. Even though the girls were looking very much at German and English guys
;-)! Sorry 2 tell u that they were not looking at the Norwegian guy
The point from this trip though is that Ása should be banned of drinking Powerrade and Red Bull cause she went bananas :-0!! offering autographs and stuff in the plain, speaking Swedish (she thinks she can) and singing songs in a very impressing way.
Ása and Björg were looking in holes in the sauna 2 see if they could see the males naked :-0 and stuff. NO MORE POWERRADE OR RED BULL IN KARATETRIPS!!!!!!!!!!
And i was very original in the plain when we went 2 Sweden. If i was funny then, then its because im funny every day!! GÚSTA HAS SPOKEN!
