It is a small low carb world

A couple of days ago I read that Diet Doctor is number 1 of all low carb sites on the internet. It was a list with top 75 sites and DD was number 1. I started to look for other sites in the list and my little site was at place 58. I must say I am a bit surprised do even be on the list. My site is not that big and even thou I have a quite steady following I never try to promote the site anywhere. So to be at place 58 probably says more of the sites “over me”. A lot of them are small sites with few followers. Not even close to the 200000+ hits everyday at DD.

Maybe I should try to climb a bit on the list by creating more content? It would be nice to actually use the pretty good url I have to do more… What do you think?

The conference in Mallorca continued today and we got to listen to 4 more interesting speakers.

For lunch I had a lot of food again. Fish, burgers, cheese, aioli, veggies etc…

The dinner was lamb, fish and a lot of nice food.

This restaurant is super! Everything is well cooked and well seasoned and really good Low Carb food!

The small town is also beautiful. The weather is a little cold but no clouds and in the sun it is still warm. I feel like him with the nice old trams…

My day

Today I had may presentation and workshop. I think it went pretty well. I do stagger a bit but I hope I feel it more than other hear it…

One of my listeners was taking notes by drawing picture and this is what my presentation was all about. Thanks for this Barbara!

It was three others also talking before lunch.

For lunch I had a lot of octopus and aioli and some other stuff. This was the best food yet this week.

And then in the afternoon we had a bonus speaker, Diet Doctor, Andreas Eenfeldt…

For dinner We got beef and fish and once again the perfect made aioli.

Interesting speeches

Today was the first day of speeches and the “focus” was diabetes, movement and low carb. It was really interesting. Maybe nothing revolutionary new but since I am a little weak at diabetes it was still educational.

For lunch we once again had great food. For me it was cheese, cold cuts and some cheese and a little chicken.

In the afternoon the people from before lunch had some workshops and this is a really good idea. Smaller groups with more chances to speak to the presenters.

Tomorrow I am upp for my presentation and I will make some small adjustments tonight…

For dinner in the evening I had some more chicken, cheese, fish, cauliflower and mayo…

First day of The Low Carb Universe

Today was the real first day of the conference: The low Carb Universe. It was a welcoming dinner in the evening but before that I managed to walk around a bit. First I walked up to a lighthouse overlooking the Port del Soller. Cloudy, windy and cold… But a nice walk.

2.5KM “straight up” and then down again. This is not the route I will run later in the week…

After the climb I walked to the town called Soller. A really nice little town where I got some coffee.

And tapas.. Yes, shrimps and crocettas again. This was the best shrimps yet. A lot of garlic.

So for dinner with all the low barbers we had a nice buffet with something for everyone to eat.

Windy and wet

Today the weather was a little like a Swedish autumn. Windy and wet… I had a nice breakfast before getting into the car.

I started the day driving to “Monestir de Nostra Senior de Lluc”. An old spiritual place with a church and a cross on a hill… I went up to the cross and the combination of barefoot shoes and wet cobblestone is not perfect. Slippery and a bit “hard on the feet”.

After the monastery I drove to Deia. The road there was even better than yesterday. Really cool turns and good conditions. Once again I lacked the handling of my Toyota…

Deia was a really nice little town with a few places still open so I tried a garlic shrimp here too… The one yesterday was better.

I found my way to the hotell for the Low Carb Universe conference in Port del Soller. My room has a great view but the wind is really battering the window covers and mine was first lose and banning against my window. I fixed it but there are still som neighbour’s covers baking on the walls…

I took a short walk

We had a dinner with parts of the participants of the conference and I had a beef tartar as starter and a naked burger with extra bacon for main.

Roadtrip on Mallorca

Today I started really early. The flight from Stockholm was at 6:10 so I got up 4:30. We arrived at Palma airport just before 10 and I picked up my rental. It was a little more expensive than expected with all “extras”. I was probably “robbed”… I did get a little bigger car than expected, a Ford Fiesta. After driving a whole day I really missed my Toyota GT86. The roads here are beautiful and the GT would have been a real joy to dive here. The ford is OK, but no GT… I realised the island is a lot smaller than I first thought. I entered a place at random as far east as the map allowed and started driving. I found Cala Figuera. A nice little town with a nice “harbour”.

I felt like a true tourist when I sat down among a buss load of Germans at a café.

After this stop I Cove Del Drac in the GPS. Wow, what a place. I was lucky to arrive just before a guided tour took us through incredible caves. The tour ended in a huge cave and there was boats with musicians  playing classical music in a darkened cave. Incredible! Well worth the trip.

After the caves I took off to the city I was going to sleep in. Alcudia. I have a room in the old town. The hotel is a really small one with something like 8 rooms. I walked around in the city…

…before I tried some tapas at two different places. Yes, I had some croquettes. Deep fried with some carbs… But I just had to try them. The prawns was the favourite. A lot of garlic and a nice olive oil.

I left the restaurant before 8PM and once again I felt like a tourist when I got back to my room… Everyone else is just starting their dinner… My room is the one with the covers in the red part of the building. Facing a terassen… Did I say it was a weird hotel. Nice but weird…

On my way to Mallorca

Today I took the first steps towards Mallorca. I drove to Stockholm for some shopping before continuing towards Arlanda Airport. The flight is early tomorrow so I will spend the night at a hotel just by the gates.

For dinner I found a Swedish “chain restaurant”, O’Learys. I had a double naked burger with extra mayo and some coleslaw.

Late night work

I am a bit behind for the conference next week. Today I managed to get a little folder made for my workshop. With a little help from caffein and some cheese I got it done. Tomorrow I will have to print them… I also have to finish my keynote for the presentation… I am 75% done but the last 25% is a bit of a struggle…

We had a long meeting at work today so I had some lunch with the others… Fish and some veggies…

For dinner I made a creamy onion sauce for a new batch of pork burgers.
