Important having insurance!!

Important having insurance

Back home in Sweden I almost never go to the doctor, I’m a very healthy girl, haha. I been having a little bad luck here in Aussie though because at home I get all for free but not here. That’s why it’s so important having an insurance, it can cost a lot not having one. When I took out my tooth it cost me about 500 euros and going to the doctor for about 2 minutes cost 425 kr, like 43 euros. I mean, what if you got really sick and need to visit a doctor very often!? You need insurance! There is a card here you can get for free I think, it’s called Medicare, it doesn’t cover going to the dentist though so it’s always good having another one. Check it up before you go to another country. I have Lansforsakringar!


Havn’t been that homesick until I skyped with my friends!

The reasons why I havn’t been homesick is probably because this is something I really wanted to do, were excited and positive about it, have met great Swedish people and love Sydney but when my friend started to cry on skype, saying I MISS U I, really felt like going home and meet my closest friends and family that I care so much about and love. Oh, MISS U GUYS!


Meeting a Swedish friend from home, funny!

When I say Maria across the road, haha, sounds like a romantic story. No, but seriously it felt like I was back in Gothenburg. Or it felt very surreal because she was there but not Gothenburg. We were going to see a outside cinema in the Botanical Gardens but when we went there we couldn’t come in, first time I couldn’t come in anywhere in Sydney;) It was closed. We walked around the Botanical Gardens more than once. Then somebody told us we had to be there at 8 to get in. There were no signs, nothing. So, we went to Gloria Jeans café of course;)


Australia Day

In the morning we watched Amy when she broke the world record by floating on a big thong in the water with 2067 other people.

Then we were a bunch of girls going to the Spanish Chocolate café just sitting there all afternoon, it was lovely. Met two more Swedish girls, one from Blekinge and one from Karlstad.






Black Swan and the three musketeers


At Friday night me, Jeanette and Rachel saw Black Swan at the cinema at George Street with Natalie Portman as the leading roll. Natalie, (Nina), is a ballet dancer who gets the part in the Ballet show, Black Swan. She has a mother that also wanted to be a great ballet dancer but had to give it up because of Nina so now Nina feels she has to make it up for her mother. It’s an amazing movie, it was never boring, full on all the time.

Afterwards we went to Scary Canarian, a backpacking dance/pub place that are really fun, they have great music and you meet people from all over the world. I met three Swedish guys and we went to Oxford street. They didn’t know anything about Sydney so I felt like a guide for the first time in Sydney. We were supposed to go somewhere but we ended up just standing on the street laughing and talking. One of the guys was soo funny, he should really be a comedian. You were all funny and great guys though;) I promised to write about them in my blog and now I have, congratz guys.


Rach was going to taste the new frosen Coke with some strawberry flavour. This is how it turned out to be, so funny!



At Scary Canaryan



Bumping in to Rachel

At Saturday I first had to go to the Doctor because I have some kind of allergic reaction, which sucks. I been to the doctor before and got a cream but it didn’t work but now I got a new one so I really hope it will disappear. Anyway, after being there I went to Bondi Beach to check out a bikini and I knew that Rachel would be there so I were just about to call her and she walk infront of me. I said Rachel and she could see me calling her on her phone, so funny. I was like, what the fuck, didn’t you see me and she was like no what the fuck, no, then I would have stopped you. So we ended up going to a café, a great backyard garden restaurant eating dinner and drinking wine and then moving on to my place. And today, Sunday, we just been laying in the sun and swimming in the pool.








Jeanette is moving to Bellevue Hill

One thing that is great is that Jeanette is moving really close to me so we can meet much more often. She is not an au-pair anymore so she will live here and work somewhere in Bondi Beach probably.



Different photos around Sydney

Time passing is something I really hate, who wants the countdown to year 2012!? DISLIKE!!









Second Working Holiday Visa - Stupid!!

You have to work three months at a farm for getting a Second Working Holiday Visa, STUPID!!

I really want to be able to come back to Australia and work here but then I have to work three months at a farm out in the bush somewhere, (and you have to do it before your first Working Holiday Visa expires, the first one is on one year), and then the Second Working Holiday Visa is only one year as well.


I think this rule is ridicules because I think there should be more than one option. I would actually think it would be a bit scary to work like that by myself. One of my Swedish friends are at a farm right now and he lives with 7 Indians and one Turkish guy, very funny, but I mean, a 19 year old girl living with them, not very fun. I don’t say it couldn’t be but my prejudices say so. But maybe you live separately girls and boys but even if you do that, a bit scary.


I also think it’s stupid because maybe you have to go home to a job you have in Sweden and don’t have the time to do it exactly that year or maybe you didn’t know about this, go home, and then you can’t come back because they say that you had to do it before your first Visa expires. The most reactions when I tell people about this think it’s weird. Thank you EU that it’s easier to work in those countries but I think US and especially Australia is the best parts and then you kind of have to get married, stupid!!

So, should I do this or not, I don’t know yet.


Well, I am maybe not this happy about the Second Working Holiday Visa




Ice berg


For the first time in my life I sat by myself in a bar, the Ice Berg bar, a little bit proud actually. It has a view over whole Bondi Beach, it’s amazing. A girl from US started to talk to me, a very kind and sweet girl. She was here at holiday and work with politics back home. Later came Amy but I didn’t know if she could come until I had been sitting there for a while. We had many things to catch up on and talk about, girls, you know.




Paddington market

I have never been at a better market! It was so cosy, calm, organized, well done, great atmosphere and you just wanted to buy everything. A little bit expensive but it was worth it.

Going out means taking your brought bike indoor





Were at a spanish chocolate cafe with Rachel, soo good.

Oysters and David Guetta

Day in Bail Main

I met Jack, (the guy who loves Sweden), in Bail Main. We went to a pub and Jack bought us wedges with sour cream and dip sauce, it was so good, have to try it again. We also played billiards which I really like, it’s so much fun. We had also eaten sushi, sushi is great, it’s like a drug to me.

Talking about drugs, I saw a movie with Rachel, (the irish girl), called Love and other drugs, a romantic comedy with Jake Gyllehaal and Anne Hathaway, it was really good, you have to see it. They both played really good. Usually I don’t think Anne is such a good actor but she was really good in this one and you guys who don’t want to see a romantic movie, it’s a lot of sex in it so you will like it as well;)




Oysters and David Guetta

On New Years Eve I tried oysters with lemon for the first time. Well, I have eaten them cooked before but not raw. I thought it was pretty good, it didn’t taste that much. I don’t think I could eat it that often but sometimes. Everybody says it tastes like saltwater but I didn’t think so, hm.

Me and the girls were at a pre-party at some Australians apartment in Bondi. Then we went to Sure Thing, a house festival we had bought ticket to, Armand Van Helden and David Guetta played. It was really fun when you sang to the songs you  recognized. I love techno but a whole evening with just techno can be too much. I didn’t really think it was worth the money but I am not the typical festival girl either. I went to bed 7 o’clock in the morning, saw the sunrise.








Gotta love lips




Can u tell it's New Years Eve!? I sure can!





Some photos I took at around 7 am New Years Day, Bellevue Hill










Clovelly beach

Me, Emelie and Rachel were at Clovelly Beach last Sunday. We were snorkeling in the water. Wasn’t as good as in Thailand though but much better than in Sweden, haha. Of course it depends on where you are snorkeling though.

Love this belief, something I also believe in

Me and Rachel at an Italian restaurant

Me and Rach met at Bondi Beach and decided to go and have dinner together. We ended up at a lovely Italian restaurant. Rach ordered lasagne, garlic bread and coke zero. I never understand people who order coke and take the coke zero or diet coke, if you gonna drink coke, drink the original one. I ordered some kind of Bolognese with tagliatelle, my favourite pasta., and wine. We also ate a delicious dessert, don’t remember the name but it was some kind of white mousse in a crispy bread thing, amasing.

We talked a lot about sex, really fun actually, we were afraid someone would say: seriously, we are eating here, haha. I read this book called Why men don’t have a clue and why women always need more shoes. It’s about differences between men and women, how we think differently and why, it’s very interesting actually. Girls, here is a joke from the book: What should you say to a guy that just had sex? Nothing, he’s asleep. So funny!!

Rach is also very interested in psychology as me so I really enjoy talking to her, she has studied it as well and are very clever. Rach is a great irish girl! We also talk a lot about the differences between different cultures, mostly differences between Sweden, Irland and Australia of course and I agree with what Rachel said that you are suppose to travel for stop having prejudices but instead you get to really discover them and many are so true. Like aussie guys don’t like having a shirt on and are very laid back and Irish people drink a lot and are very funny and Swedish people are beautiful, hahaha. Fucking beautiful as an Irish person would say;)


Two parties in the same house

Last Friday, me and Rachel went to a party with some guys I played pool with at tea garden, a pub. Most of the guys were from Irland. We played king, a drinking game, very funny, or maybe not for everyone;) Later that night some guys that lived on the second floor came over and I liked them much better, haha. So the next day we were at a party at their place instead, pretty funny.

Scissor as an antenn, so backpacking style





My favourite café

I have never really liked reading books, probably because my mum always nagged about reading them, but now I really enjoy it and there is this café in Bondi that is so great. They have great food, coffee and a good crowd but the big thing with this café is that it is like a library, they have all different kinds of books, right now I am into self help, psychology and spiritual books. I am addicted to this café, to sushi and moccha. So, you can just choose a book and read when you are drinking your coffee and even by it cheap if you want to.

Love this Cafe

The Aussie Christmas

Our Christmas eve

At the 24 of December me, Emelie, Amy and two of Amys friends from Sweden went to the Operahouse and ate a Christmas lunch and took some funny photos with Christmas hats with the operahouse and the harbourbridge as backgrounds. In the evening we went to the beach and ate Swedish Christmas food. Meatballs, herring, eggs, potato, sausages and so on. We had a very cosy evening.










The aussie Christmas day

At the 25 of December I went up seven o’clock to open the Christmas presents with my hostfamily and their relatives who are staying here for Christmas and New years. I had slept for about 4 hours. I got two dresses, some make-up, nail-polish, different kinds of creams and money to download music to my ipod, really girly and good presents;) thank u everyone. In Australia the Santa isn't coming and knocking at the door as he do in Sweden. The Santa has only been there the night before and put the presents under the Christmas tree, I most say I miss Santa, my dad;)

Then we cooked food, a lot of food – turkey, ham, sweet potato, pork, pumpkin and so on. It was really good! I actually have to say that I like the Australian Christmas food more than the Swedish but of course the Swedish Christmas food is something extraordinary. We also ate plumpudding with custard, (vaniljkram), and cream for dessert. One thing I found funny is The crackers party hats that they put on their heads, shaped as a king. Well, we do similar at Midsummer but still. I had a great Christmas day and I could for the first time in Sydney really feel some Christmas spirit.

In the evening I went to the Beach and sat and drank some beers with a few friends, yes, Sophia has learned how to drink beer, haha. I think Rachel, the irish girl, has inspired me a bit;) Then me and Jeanette went to an aussie afterparty.













Jeanette at the baech



Stupid girl lost her bike

At Christmas Day I took my bike to the beach and I did lock it, but not around something. I’ve left it like that before but only for a little while. I thought about getting it back home put after a few beers I thought it would be alright leaving it their and then we went to this afterparty and I remembered it the day after. So I went to the beach to get it back but it was gone:( leaving a bike at Christmas day at Bondi beach is probably not the best thing to do. It was crowded with people all day.


When not planning going out

The best nights can sometimes be when you are not planning to go out. I had been shopping during the day and then me and Emelie decided to meet in town. I had either met the other girls or had contact with them during the day and then everybody decided to come to the city and also a guy called Jack that loves Sweden, he lived there for one year and he can almost speak fluent, so weird but very impressive. Either I meet Swedish people or people who loves Sweden, isn’t it strange? We went to the three monkeys, a pub with many floors, and then we went to a place called Scubar. First we thought it was to crowded and you got beer all over you all the time but then when it was later there was more older people and not that crowded so we met people from California, Scotland, France and of course Sweden. Then we went to a after party and played billiards, I love that game.
