Luke Mellor (Cobham 82)

Luke writes, “I am an Investment banker and have been living in Stockholm for the last 15 years. Like most Englishmen in Sweden, I followed my ‘nose’ having met a beautiful Swedish girl at the annual Barcelona ABS conference – Petra (also an investment banker). 18 years after our wedding in the Cotswolds, we are the proud parents of one girl (Freya, 2002) and three boys (Felix, 2003, Freddie, 2007 and Filip, 2009). Whereas a 45 minute drive from London will get you to the Hammersmith roundabout, the same 45 minutes from Stockholm will take you to the remote archipelago – land of dry toilets and ground water, where we spend our weekends at our cottage painted in the ubiquitous falu rödfärg.”
