Is there a place that just gets your creative juices flowing? And what is it exactly that inspires you? People, cities, nature, history? Find out some of the places + moments where Liz + Lina feel most alive…. plus some regular life updates + the answer to whether Liz’s brother is coming for a visit or not!
Screw the traditional Valentine’s Day talk! While we are talking all about love today, we decided to give it a little Liz + Lina twist. Tune in to Episode 19 of the LIZ + LINA podcast to hear how we both struggle with loving who we are, plus some of the strategies we use to help us learn to better take care of ourselves. Remember… it all starts with you. So, love yourself!
Hey! Long time no see, but here I am. Gosh, once I really sit down and blog, I realize how much I actually miss it. Anyhow, as the title of this post says, today is the day. Liz and I are going to be on Home & Garden Television (HGTV) on the show called, House Hunters International. Yep, that’s right! The channel found Liz’s blog back in winter of 2015, but we weren’t ready to move to our own place then. However, HGTV told us that they still really wanted to film an episode with us, and that they would wait until we were actually gonna buy a home. Life happened and the time came for us to purchase a place, we contacted HGTV, and we filmed a day in Asheville, NC in the States this past summer, and then filmed four days here in Uppsala, Sweden. Intense days but so much fun!! The time has now come and it’s gonna air on TV TONIGHT in the States!!
So if you have HGTV, our episode, “Swinging Back to Sweden”, will be on at 10:30PM Eastern time.
You can read more about the episode here which will take you to the website of House Hunters International, and basically what you see down below.
Liz and I have, of course, a lot of footage from summer and fall, when we filmed, which we will post on our YouTube channel (which I’ve forgotten to mention on the blog yet, but in our latest podcast!). However, if you would like a little taste of it, you can watch the Casting Video we filmed. Even though the show hunted us, we still had to go through all the paperwork and process of being casted. Check out the casting video here below. Also, for future references, we will post, as I said earlier, more video footage later on, so hit the subscribe button on YouTube, and tag along on this TV adventure of ours!

A couple of American papers have also written about us and the upcoming show as well, which you can find here. Mountain Xpress, here, and Citizen-Times, here. We’ve also been interviewed by the local paper in Uppsala, but when I’m typing this, it hasn’t been published yet (if it will?!).
So, I believe that’s it for now. I’ll post, once the episode has been aired, a bunch of behind-the-scenes pictures, a little more info, and videos. It will probably end up being several parts because we have so much fun material to share with you! What a crazy and amazing adventure this has been and still is!

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.

I’m back in Sweden after an amazing month in the USA. We’ve done so many fun and exciting things, and I can’t wait to show you some snippets and a video or so from our time over the pond. Liz has done some amazing documentation, divided in several blog posts, so instead of pretty much repeating what she has written and shown, I’m gonna figure out another way to share our adventures, so stay tuned. But until then, go over and check out Liz’s blog here.
