Christmas lunch at Krasares





We had a fantastic tasty Christmas lunch at Krasares put together by all of us - and although a lot of us Swedes have left Cyprus for Christmas in Sweden we were 80! people!

Some pictures....

Göran and Lars-Åke both sang "snapsvisor" for us and presented their new office in Kato Paphos where we will play bridge, get together in the bar and will be able to watch Sweden win the World Championship in football.....

Kiss or Miss - Words from the TV-team

Hi Sven,

Just wanted to drop you a quick e-mail to say thank you so much for having us on board your beautiful boat. Apart from one unhappy contributor, everyone who came on the boat had an amazing time. The footage we shot looks brilliant and I know that the rest of the crew and production team are very thankful that you took the time to accommodate us.

The help and time that people such as you give is so valuable and will all go towards making the show look great as well as making the filming process very enjoyable. The whole team and both our couples have said how nice it was to meet you and Maj and what a pleasure it was to spend a couple of days with you.

I have attached a link to the website where information about dates when the show will air will appear. I am no longer working at Princess so if you do need anything then please feel free to contact jo.challenor@princesstv.com

Once again, a massive thank you from all the team.

Golf VICTORY

So - I played a "Texas Scramble" together with Paul, Per & Kerstin and we did WIN! The price was a bottle of wine each - but I have no picture to prove it as Sven & I had already left the Club House when the last boll came in... Sven was competing for the Vikings versus the Brittish team - and Sven played fantastic golf - but it did not help. The Brittish team won - so he was disappointed and wanted to go home.....

Kiss or Miss - Second couple






So in beautiful weather - sun shining and calm sea - we went out with the second couple with "Gladan af Westervik" in "Kiss or Miss" this Sunday. What a difference! The couple fell in love - or at least we believe so - and cealed it with a long kiss after the envelopes were opened and both had written "Kiss"...

Sven and I did enjoy sailing with the Sky Television as the crew was both very professional and funny!

You will see this fantastic crew on the first picture sailing away with us from Paphos harbour again - and the "the Couple" meeting for the first time. The youngest boy in the team had to swim to the Coral Bay shore where we anchored as he had forgotten to buy butter, mustard and mayonnaise - and cigarettes - and he was brave. He used one of the swimming matrasses and came back after 15 minutes with dry stuff -the cigarettes in his mouth wrapped up into plastic film....

After "the Kiss" "the Couple" enjoyed the sailing back to Paphos harbour...

When the filming was over - and the team was satisfied with what they had accomblished during the day they were "shaking" to Bob Marley on deck ....

It was as said before - a wonderful day - also for Sven and me!

"Kiss or Miss" - Sailing with Gladan















So - this morning the weather was perfect for the Sky TV to take one of their 30 couples out with Gladan - and this couple ended up in "Miss". He was goodlooking, number two in "Kick-boxing" in the world and she was goodlooking - but nothing else.... Comments from me. Göran and Lars-Åke were our crew so I did not have to work on the boat - just enjoying the sun and the winds.

We had a "snaps" the Danish Gammeldansk as we always do - and Sven served the drinks.

Lars-Åkes wife - Anngret - was on the cliffs taking photos of us - and we took a photo of her standing up there.

So sailing away with Sky TV on the 20th of November looks exactly like this!

Dinner with friends








We invited our best friends for a dinner tonight in Olympus Village and we had a fantastic evening.

Sue & Steve - I play golf every week with Sue and sometimes Steve joins us - and sometimes Sven too. We played "Texas Scramble" all the four of us last week and if you have read my blog you know that we ended up winners all four of us.

Dallas & David - they are the couple we met having only being in Cyprus for two weeks - and they did introduce us to all our best friends we now have here in Paphos.

Stan and Chris - the guitarr player - we were listening to his songs for the first time in the harbour of Paphos when he played his song "Driving in Cyprus" and I could hardly stop laughing - because all the words in this song are true! Now we are close friends - and he has also written a song for us "Sailing with Gladan".

Stan playing and Chris singing made our evening!

The Scorpion´s Golf Competition







Sven and I was invited to play golf at the fantastic golfcourse Elea by our friends Staffan and Marie-Louise. I have no pictures from the golf competition as I was plying - not taking pictures - but after the golf we had a fantastic evening with a superb dinner - and dance! I got the pictures in the wrong order - but ....

The FINAL - Wiking Golf 2011





Sven did win the men´s competition "Wiking Golf 2011" but Hans was only one point after him - but of course Anita did win the ladies competion - and look at the pictures how happy they are! It was raining cats and dogs yesterday and tonight and this morning so we did play only nine holes.

Anita thanked the golf course, the bird we had on hole number 5 and now on hole number 6, the grapes, the landscape - she held a fantastic speach why to golf - not only to put those small balls - white, yellow, pink - into the cup - but also to have great fun in trying to do it together with friends. Sven was speachless after that!

I had lots of bad "holes" but a couple of good ones - so for the first time - on my own - I did win a bottle of wine as I came in as the second.... Believe it or not! Of course Sven did not take a photo when I got the "award".

But now I have to lower my handicap from 54 to 36 - so I do believe that this Tzangarides white wine bottle is the only one that I will win. But you never know - on the 18th of November we have a new competition!

"Kiss or Miss" with Gladan














Finally - after two efforts and no success with winds and weather we sailed away with one of the couples in the Sky TV show "Kiss or Miss" and today it was "Miss". He was so goodlooking and nice and she was only goodlooking.....

Göran and Lars-Åke was our crew and we enjoyed the sailing in beautiful weather. Anngret - Lars-Åke´s wife took a picture of us from the shore and we took a picture of her up on the rooks. The view is fantastic!
