September 

A new month has started and I belive this month will be at least as exciting as the previous. But also more restfull and rewarding.

Photo from the David Guetta show from Utopia festival yesterday.

The month has already got off to a good start. Yesterday I went to a music festival called Utopia and I got to listen to a lot of good music and enjoy the good mood in the beautiful sunshine. Today is as bright as yesterday so after a nice breakfast I went for a good walk and went to vast my vote for the general election early since I will be enjoying myself in Crete on election day. I am very much looking forward to this trip as I did a smilar one last year and it did wonders for me.

Going back to this later this month


Work will also stay interesting this month and I will also be enjoying some good social time with friends. Sure it will be busy, but I hope I will gather the energy for the whole autumn on my sunny vacation.

Hope September has a lot of good things in store for all of you too!

Vilnius part 2: Food

Black vanilla ice cream was all the rage so I tried a scoop. It was quite tasty.


In Vilnius I had a lot of very tasty food. Some of ut I tried just because it looked great, but I also wanted to try some propper Lithuanian food. It has a lot in common with it’s Baltic contries, Polish, German and Ukranian.

Ordenary and rhubarb lemonade

Cabbage soup served in a bowl made from rye bread

A sampler of a lot of different potato dishes. Potato pancakes, potato dumplings, Cepelinai fried and boiled and potato sausage

A lot of the Lithuanian food is quite heavy and not the tings you usually would choose on a hot summers day. Especially the potato dishes is quite filling, when served with sour cream and bacon. Potatos and pork is a lot of their cuisine.

I also tried some borcht the nice beetroot soup. And quite a lot of the Lithuanian beer, that did the trick in the heat.

One evening I got a really nice guinnea fowl, but the stuff at the resturant was very snobby.


At the wedding I opted for the duck

What To Do When One Of Your Blog Posts Is Reblogged #bloggingtips

Just had to re-blog this post about re-blogging!

Hugh's Views & News

One the nicest things another blogger can do is to share one or more of our blog posts. I remember when one of my posts was reblogged for the first time. As a new blogger, it was one of the most wonderful feelings I had, and I was excited that my post was now in front of thousands of new readers. Even today, I still get those same feelings whenever one of my posts is reblogged.

Unless you’ve chosen to turn off all your WordPress notifications, then you will get an email notification from WordPress when one of your posts is reblogged. It will tell you the following information –

  • which post has been reblogged
  • who has reblogged it
  • the number of followers the post has been reblogged to

Here’s an example of a recent reblog notification I received.

Walking on an island 

Not too far from our summer-house is a small town called Jørpeland. This is where we usually go shopping when we are on vacation. This year I decided to go for a walk on a small Island here that was just connected to the mainland by a walking bridge.

The weather wasn’t the best, but mostly it was only a slight drizzle. Luckily I had my rain gear on so I got to enjoy the nice new walking path out there.

There is an artist that makes nice tree sculptures that has made a lot of nice pieces for the park on the island.

 The nature around the island is quite nice and there is always something beautiful to look at.
