I had a great trip to Umeå. After all the mayhem at the airport the day before, Jens and I were fortunate to get our flight with only minor delays (despite SAS being the most on-time airline in the world). In Umeå I was lucky to be hosted by Pete and Carol, and had lots of fun with their kids Vincent and Torben. It was great to have a family dinner, and made me think about spending time with my nieces when I go back to Canada. Since it snowed a whole bunch a few days before I got there, we went out on kick sleds after dinner. Fun!
I was only there for a few days and haven’t been there for a long time, so I organized a ‘pub night’ after work. We went to a Scottish bar for dinner and some pitchers. It was nice to see everyone in a social way. It was also nice to walk around Umeå a bit.
