Liz and I decided during our vacation in the States, after we’d been guests in a podcast which I wrote about here, to start our own podcast. So we went to a store, bought a microphone and pop filters, brainstormed, and planned.
Once we were back in Sweden, we set everything up, and started recording.
We edited it a bit, and then uploaded it/requested a review in iTunes, and once we were approved, it was there – available for the world! Gaaaah, such a good feeling. So reader, feel free to subscribe to our podcast!
You’ll find it by searching liz+lina or just simply click on the links below and choose the platform of your choice. We’re still working on figuring our additional platforms, so if you prefer or miss the platform you’re using, let me know, and we’ll work on it. But as of now, you’ll find it by following the links below.
Hope you’ll enjoy it as much we enjoyed recording it. It’s a journey for us, and hopefully you’d like to tag along. Feedback is also warmly welcomed ♥
When I was in the States this summer, I did some shoe shopping since it’s way cheaper there than in Sweden. Today I decided to waterproof/impregnate the new ones along with some older shoes as well, and while I did it, I thought, why not take some pics, and show you some of my favorites here at home. So here we go.
I’ve been wearing Converse (tall and short ones) for more than half my life and have owned quite a many pair. Unfortunately, I’ve gave/sold many pairs, or a majority of, my Converse when we moved to the States…one of the things I actually regret that I did. Oh, well. I’m working on expanding my collection now, and I decided to go for some classic ones this time. Tall and black.
The Adidas Superstar has been pretty popular the past years, and I got really retro-looking ones when they came out, since they were really popular when I was around 14. Of course, I had to get a pair as the age of 32 as well. Yes, nostalgia. I bought the Nike ones this past spring, which you can see more of in this blog post.
Vans has also become a favorite brand, and I’ve been wearing these ones quite a bit, and they’re still going strong.
Ok, readers. Friends. Toms. Is. The. Most. Comfortable. Shoes. Liz and I have had several pairs for multiple years, and we both love them. This trip to the States, I came home with fresh new black ones.
New Balance. So comfortable and nice looking. Do I need to say more? Oh, this is model 420.
Dr. Martens. Shoes who look and fit better the more you wear them. Bought these several years ago. I believe I have an Instagram picture from when I got them.
The newest pair of shoes in my collection, and to me, also a new brand in my closet. Clarks. I think we’re gonna have a nice fall together.
Some favorite brands of mine when it comes to shoes

Who are we and why are we starting a podcast?
Liz and I were asked to be guests on a podcast, called Finding Asheville, while we were in Asheville, and of course we wanted to! We felt honored doing it, so a huge thank you to hostess Emily Trimnal, co-host Janet Bray, and Nathan Miller at Finding Asheville, we had so much fun doing this!
The episode is called From Asheville to Sweden and was released on August 15th, 2016. This is the iTunes description on the episode.
We’re back! We took a mini summer vacation, but Finding Asheville is back with a fascinating new episode. While Benny plays at the beach, Emily and guest co-host Janet sit down with our guests for the week. Elizabeth McGuire and Lina Eriksson are a couple living in Sweden. Liz is a writer – formerly of the Mountain Xpress – and expat who now calls Sweden home. Listen in as Janet and Emily learn about life in Sweden, and how the social life differs from here in the United States. Gain knowledge about how a socialist country cares for their citizens, and how people overseas view our current presidential race. All of this and much much more on this special edition of Finding Asheville.
