Roskilde: In Fluctu Amor.

“You know, I think our 500 kroner banknote doesn’t look like the money we’ve received in exchange so far. Could be the Danes have introduced a new design.”

“You must be right. Maybe you could simply try to pay our entrance fee with it and see how they react?”

The nice guy at the entrance to the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde simply takes our money in return for our tickets. Phew.

Yes, we’ve treated Denmark badly in most of our holidays: as a transit country to be managed in the swiftest way possible and paid by credit cards, which is why we still had that old kroner banknote at home: there were times we decided to see what’s to be seen and to pay our way with real money.  Like the year we were getting married and spent some time in Copenhagen area right before the short ceremony on the shores of the Baltic sea, so to speak.

After having rowed and sailed a replica of an old Viking ship once more, after the lovely Viking salad and local organic beer, we realized, just like the last time, we needed to come here again and repeat the beautiful experience. Maybe we could also put in some hiking next time, without the huge rucksack? And Swedish rain?

Glaskogen: Lessons In Love.

“I don’t think I can do that.”

It took me whole 60 seconds to find that out and say it. In my head, exclusively, I do have some pride. Now what? Wisely, I excluded the confession act as a possibility and gave it another try instead. And another one. I still couldn’t do it, but I walked on. Nothing else to do: I had claimed a few weeks ago, loudly and comprehensively, that I should be able to do it, so now it was too late to find out I couldn’t. So I walked on. Just like I’d do in real life, nothing new there for me.

Just before we started packing our rucksacks for a 3-day hiking tour, the rain had decided now was the time to act out the attention whore part and stick to it for some time. Of course it would, this is Sweden, for ticks’ sake! I could only hope my brand new Dalsland tan wouldn’t get rinsed off or mouldy till we get home. Home. Where the bed is. And the shower. Walk on.

Gradually, my body stopped hating me for carrying such a huge load for so long in such a rain and we made 8 kilometers that day. At the end of which, we discovered our first palace: they hadn’t bothered with the red carpet but painted the whole house red instead and inside, there were beds. And an oven. That day, I may or may not have believed in heaven on Earth …

Oh, the rain? It was our devoted companion all along. Jep. One of the most beautiful hiking areas there ever was, admired as water color. With the exception of a few moments, that is. Beautiful moments.

We spent the next night in another red house saying “Germans go home” on one of its walls. Sorry to say we didn’t. We couldn’t. Not after 15 kilometers in the rain and half a ton on our backs. But thank you for the oven and all the wood.

- – -

“Where did you spend your holiday, if I may ask?” The repairman was nice and talkative, so I told him the truth: “In Sweden.” The tremor rattling his body could be seen: “Sweden? Isn’t it … cold and rainy up there?” He checked my chocolate tan again – it must have provoked his question in the first place – and decided to stick to his opinion: “And grey?”

“Yes, it is,” I lied (not wanting all the world and her wife to travel there next summer), “but then, at least there are no mosquitos when the weather’s bad. And it is still very beautiful, Sweden is.”

That’s true. While I was afraid I’d be missing Finland way too much, I found Glaskogen area to be quite similar to our beloved Finnish hiking grounds and that was enough. Oh, and: we had enough sun in Dalsland to enjoy a 5-day paddling tour in the first place.

Strange, though … this year no one exclaimed Spain’s gonna win as soon as they heard us talking German. At least I thought that was strange until I finally had a look at a comprehensible Swedish newspaper: it contained the words Spain, Chile and fiasco. I couldn’t believe it.

Vseh dobrih stvari je … 40. Trenutno. Ker se cenimo, kenede.

  1. Ne pišite preveč pogovorno, k’ to čist sux.
  2. Vejice naj, bodo tam kamor sodijo. Obstajajo pa tudi, stavki brez vejic.
  3. Velike Začetnice Uporabljajte po Pravopisu.
  4. Uporabljajte veznike, kateri so pravilni.
  5. Ne pozabite občasno obnoviti pravilno uporabo rodilnika.
  6. Ko omenjate dve osebe, uporabljajte dvojino.
  7. Popačenke iz drugih jezikov sigurno ne pašejo v lepo slovenščino.
  8. Predloga z in s uporabljajte v skladu z pravili.
  9. Da nebi kdaj pisali skupaj besed, ki se pišejo narazen ali na sprotno.
  10. Če uporabljate tujke, jih uporabljajte akvaduktno.
  11. In ne prepogosto začenjati stavka z veznikom ali predlogom. Ker to ni lepo.
  12. Pri pisanju pišite tako, da bo to, kar pišete, zapisano za tiste, ki bodo to brali, tako, kot oni pričakujejo; naj jim ne bo nerazumljivo in nejasno, saj tako ne bodo mogli razumeti, kar bi si razumeti želeli. Pišite jasno.
  13. Pri pisanju ne uporabljajte vulgarnih izrazov, saj lahko vse zajebajo.
  14. Starinske besede so bržčas zanimive in kakopak popestrijo besedilo, vendar v preveliki meri zbog njih besedilo ne zveni dobro nego malone nejasno.
  15. Besedilo bo bolj razgibano, če v besedilu uporabljate sopomenke. Tako besedilo je tudi pestrejše.
  16. Ne menjavajte časov po nepotrebnem, saj ste s tem, ko boste tako zapisali, naredili veliko slogovno napako.
  17. Pridevnike stopnjujemo na dva načina; uporabimo bolj pravilnejšega.
  18. Pomnite:za ločilom je vedno presledek,razen če je desnostično.
  19. Pred oddajo tekst se enkrat prelgedamo , da izločimo tikparske napake.
  20. Če boste uporabljali za prihodnjik pomožni glagol, bo bila vaša tovarišica iz prvega razreda zelo razočarana.
  21. Ali res ne gre brez pretirane rabe vprašajev in klicajev!!!!!!!!!?!?!?!
  22. Ogibajte se TZO, ker jih večina zavedenih v CRP ne pozna. OK?
  23. Če ne veste, kako tvoriti mestnik, poglejte, kaj piše o njemu v pravopisu.
  24. Pazite na uporabo povratno svojilnega zaimka v vaših pisnih izdelkih.
  25. V prid dobremu stilu doma vedno držite SSKJ, da preverite, zakaj je temu tako.
  26. Kar se tiče mašil, pravzaprav priporočamo, da se jih v bistvu izogibate.
  27. Če ne želite biti nejasno razumljeni, boste obvezno mogli paziti na razlike med glagoloma hoteti in želeti, pa tudi med moči in morati.
  28. Trpnik naj bo izogiban.
  29. Pomembno je, da v bogatem slovenskem besedišču zadanete ustrezno besedo in se ne prevarite.
  30. Nekatere besede se ne sklanjajo, zato je v večih primerih bolje, da s pisanjem prekinete, preverite pravila in nadaljujete šele po parih urah.
  31. V slovenščini poznamo tudi navezno obliko osebnih zaimkov, zato ne pozabite na njo.
  32. Treba je razlikovat med nedoločnikom in namenilnikom, drugače gre vse skupaj rakom žvižgati.
  33. Prevodi iz tujih jezikov ne smejo biti narejeni dobesedno, sicer so lahko patetični.
  34. Hrvatizmi: Valjda se jih ne sme preveč uporabljati, ker kao izgledajo grdo.
  35. V doglednem terminu se naučite zglednega naglaševanja terminov.
  36. Kratki stavki – priporočamo? Ne! Običajno so grdi. Nerazumljivi. Čim manj!
  37. Naučite se pravilno sklanjati množinske samostalnike, da ne bodo vsi mislili, da ste brez možgan. (VIR 1-37)
  38. Izražanje pretiranega spoštovanja do Vaših bralcev je že davno iz mode. Kar ste Vi in Vaši bralci najbrž že vedeli. (VIR)
  39. Če ste na Facebook-u ali Twitter-ju, bi vaš ugled- znal trpeti, če boste v sklanjan-ih besed-ah po nepotrebnem uporabljali vezaj-e. (VIR: alcessa)
  40. Tudi če v Angliji pečejo chili cake, v Nemčiji cmarijo Grillwurst in v New Yorku hodijo v The White House Tavern, pri nas nihče ne reče, kaj šele na svoji Facebook strani napiše čili torta, žar klobasa, Vrtnica bistro, saj bi s tem na levo stran postavil neujemalni samostalnik prilastek, kar je slovnica napaka. (alcessa losulja strikes again)
