Summer vacation in Sweden is the worst time of the year. People go out of town, they leave you hanging with your projects and it's too nice outside to be writing music inside with zero air conditioning. So, I decided to elope and devour myself an inspirational journey, together with my friend Angelina.

This trip started in Barcelona, made a stopover in Paris, and ended in Gothenburg at a festival.

Pictures of good quality were taken by my friends, pictures of analog quality taken by me. Obsessed with documentation, I've also videotaped parts of our trip and made a compilation clip accompanied by the soundtrack of this journey- 'Venus As A Boy' by Björk. I wish I could have made it to the sounds of my next release instead, but it is yet to be released. Hold on tight.

Barcelona

Barcelona was an adventure like no other. Hot, sweaty and fun. I made it to the beach, the museums and into the arms of a stranger with an accent. Our apartment was almost Andy Warhol-esque in its appearance, a big sculptured cock above the shower; cut out windows in the bedrooms; spray painted walls and a swing in the living room.

It's been great, especially our last night, elbowing our way through a tapas bar, spilling cava and just having the most stereotypical Spanish experience ever.

Paris

My friends and I often talk about cities in terms of three key people: the lover, the spouse, and the childhood friend. Paris will always be my lover, and it's difficult for me to leave, every time. I never get homesick when I'm there and I feel strangely at home being a timid swede amongst the passionate, almost aggressive Frenchmen. But I know I can't stay for long, at least I'm not meant to stay forever, as you're never to stay in the arms of your most passionate lover.

Gothenburg

My final destination was Gothenburg and the Way Out West festival, where I met up with my manager. I wish I could end this with more poetic words, but I had a blast dancing my ass off to Massive Attack.
