Continue reading to discover which iconic World Cup is a particular sporting highlight, which rapper with a messiah complex stands out from the crowd and who wins out of the Thailand vs USA dilemma.

Best Holiday

It’s a close race between Thailand and USA. The US however picks the longest straw this time. I spent almost four weeks there in 2010, starting off in New York before flying to San Francisco. Driving down highway one to LA and San Diego, stopping in places such as Santa Cruz on the way. Rounded off the trip in Las Vegas gambling, attending shows and going on a helicopter ride through the Grand Canyon.

Best Book

Flash Boys. I’m a sucker for non-fiction and especially those that take basis in either crime or the business world. The Big Short is one of my favourite movies of all time and the author behind that book also wrote Flash Boys, a fascinating story about the rise of High Frequency Trading.

Best Album

Kanye West – Graduation. This for me is when Hip Hop grew up, going from a provocative teenager to a reflective grown up.  

Best Sporting Experience

Although I was only ten at the time, World Cup 1994 holds a very special heart in all swedes who got the chance to witness it. Sweden finished 3rd during a summer that forever holds a very high place in the heart in all Swedes, whether normally interested in football or not.

Best Film

Pulp Fiction. I was likely way too young to be watching such a movie at the time, but I remember watching it at a friend’s house over and over again, analysing the unexpected turn of events and phrases. None of us, or probably the world, had ever seen anything nearly similar.

Best Bet

Deciding to move down to Malta in 2007, looking for a job in the online gaming industry. At the time I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but it turned out really well!
