Swedish Cuisine


Last night I was taken out for dinner by the guys in NetNod. They took us all to a very nice Swedish restaurant down by the water in Stockholm. The menu, below, is in Swedish, so I had to get one of the local hosts to translate it for me. The food was exquisite and […]

I Love Serbian Pricing

Across the street from the hotel there’s a Costa Coffee so I headed over there to grab a bite to eat and a coffee.

Air France Surprise and Delight Me Via Twitter


I fly with Air France and other airlines that are part of the SkyTeam alliance. I like Air France, but sometimes they screwup. And when they do and you’re on the receiving end of the screwup it can be really really frustrating. However they have been really doing a fantastic job with handling customer service […]
