So here I am again, back from the Turkey adventure. Had a great trip that exceeded my expectations and gave me a change to clear my mind and look towards the new challenges that lie ahead.
I think this picture sums up the journey:
Some readers have requested a more thorough report from the actual flight and I shall try to complete one during this week (all depending on my workload).
Tomorrow my new job starts and it will be nice to (roughly) know what I am doing between 8 and 16 every Monday-Friday.
In terms of flying the only news is that Henke (my instructor) has found himself a new job and I am still waiting to hear who the new man will be.
Until next time……..

….the Eurovision Song Contest (ESC)? This annual event has to qualify as politics on a higher level than any of the above organizations could ever provide.
After a semi-final where Eastern Europe completely dominated, Friday evening was the time of the big final. I must say that it belonged to one of the worst ESCs I’ve ever watched. It is never a good sign when the entry makes you want to have a sip of whiskey to think about something else.
After 24 entries, four which qualify as decent it was time for the biggest political event of the year namely the results of the XXXX jury. It was déja vù with each nation voting for their respective neighbors (the exception being Ireland who did not receive any points from the UK). I start to wonder if it is really the spectators who vote or if there is a secret jury in every country making sure that good political ties are kept “between friends.”
Again, accusations were made towards the Eastern European nations of “friend voting” but I must agree with the EBU boss Svante Stockselius that the Scandinavians are just as bad. “From Norway with love…. Sweden 12 points” etc.
Nevertheless, congratulations to Serbia (despite all the accusations of “political messages” and accusations of theft and I look forward to “a fantastic show in Belgrade”.
Finally to all voters : Spare Europe from sending parodies.. Yes France (at least translate the whole song or nothing of it), UK & Ukraine I’m talking to you!!

120 days after leaving my former employer I have now finally found myself a new endeavor. On May 28th, I shall be taking on a new challenge at the sales department of News Factory AB in Stockholm.
I can’t write more about this at the moment but rest assure that I will keep you updated as much as I can, company regulations taken in to consideration.
Flying tomorrow for the first time in two weeks. That is if weather doesn’t stop me!

View from my (parents) balcony
Sitting on a Friday evening, sipping on a G&T with this view can’t do much else than inspire even the most uninspired person. Took a week of from flying to analyze why I “sucked” and found the answer!!! However next Friday SE-GON and I meet again!
