Work, Travel, Eat, Repeat

Hola! I just came back to London from a week in the south of Spain. I travelled around by car in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the coast from Almería to Málaga. It was a well-needed dose of sun after a couple of rainy weeks in London. But it is nice to be back in the office after colossal amounts of tapas and a burning nose due to the lack of sunscreen (horrible vacation conditions).

About three weeks ago, we hosted the Nordic Green Alliance 2018 at the Embassy of Sweden to United Kingdom. The event was intended as a platform for Nordic Cleantech companies to showcase new and innovative solutions to industry stakeholders in the United Kingdom. By gathering stakeholders of the Cleantech ecosystem, including financial institutions, investors, and government representatives, the event enabled sharing of knowledge and networking possibilities. The aim is to provide a starting platform that will encourage fruitful collaborations going forward. The event concluded with the inauguration of a Swedish Cleantech Hub in London, an initiative driven by the Swedish Energy Agency and a reception at the Swedish Ambassador’s Residence in London.

Last week we had a trainee call and it was lovely as always to hear how my fellow trainees are doing across the world!


This week I have six of my best friends visiting London, meaning I finally will go see all those London landmarks that I have not seen yet! Super exciting to have them over, so expect plenty of tourist pictures in my next post.

All the best!
