It’s Sunday afternoon. I’m doing my weekly shopping, sending a list to the grocery store, buying dog food (lots of it). Finally printing the label to return that sweater, that may have been a little … optimistic … from a size perspective.

Tell me why?

A few years ago, we set up a goal to be one of the best workplaces in Sweden. And we signed up with http://www.greatplacetowork.net/.

The long perspective

Yesterday I attended the Richtfest – the topping off ceremony – of the new Hotel Krønasår at Europa-Park. The hotel is the first phase of Europa-Park’s expansion. It will also include an indoor waterpark called, Rulantica.

Go East

Asian Attractions Expo 2018 – check. A great week. And, as always, it was intense. Interesting. Stimulating. And thought-provoking.

Seasonality and Peanut Butter Jelly Sandwiches

I am on my way back from Australia after having attended the annual AALARA (Australian Amusement Leisure & Recreation) conference.  It has been a long trip, but it was extremely interesting on so many levels.

Lead from the front

On the 15 of July 2008, at 5:32 PM our Liseberg team had one of the worst incidents in our almost 100-year history. A classic Huss Rainbow Ride crashed due to mechanical failure from construction. Seven people were hurt, the ride was taken out of operation, and a long legal process followed.

Familiar, yet unlike anything 

I have travelled to Japan for almost 20 years. My first experiences were because of my position at TIVOLI, as I was responsible for our sister park in Kurashiki. Over the years, I have gone to Japan less frequently, but each time it’s with the same great enthusiasm.

Change

LH810 Frankfurt – Gothenburg, Sunday morning. I’m drinking (bad) coffee, and trying to decide if I should pick-up the dogs first, or stop to buy milk as I’m driving home from airport. I am returning from a whirlwind trip to Orlando, after publicly announcing Paul Noland is leaving IAAPA and will soon be heading Accesso.

IP-fication

Monday: Billund, Denmark. Lego House. Amazing. Designed by BIG, I am not sure if it was a museum, a brand experience or a high-end FEC. I really don’t care. It was a fun and friendly place to hang out. And I fell even more in love with LEGO, after being immersed in the world of the brick.

Blurred lines

At long last, I’m heading home after spending a couple of weeks in Orlando. The trip was a bit longer than I had planned; sometimes weather and airlines just don’t agree with our best laid plans. However, I made the best of my extended stay. And I am now sitting here on an airplane with a MagicBand on my wrist, and a collection of wonderful memories in my mental luggage.
