The Spin Bag by IAMRUNBOX

Post sponsored by IAMRUNBOX Today I’m going to share my thoughts about my new travel companion, the Spin Bag! When I started this blog I made a category called “Reviews: Products” and this is actually the first time I publish something in that category. I get new stuff quite rarely since I don’t like the consummation society we live in where everyone buys new stuff all the time and then throw them away 6 months later. When I get something…

5 Reasons Why I Love Eurovision

5 Reasons Why I Love Eurovision

It’s that time of the year again when everyone is dressed in feathers and glitter – EUROVISION! I’ve been a Eurovision-geek ever since the Finnish monsters Lordi won the competition in 2006 and I got completely hooked. My geekiness might have faded a bit during the years (I do no longer make my own rating system and learn all the lyrics by heart, haha) but I still love the competition a lot. I was discussing my love for this weird…

Travel Diary: Boden Day 5

Travel Diary: Boden Day 5

When we got back from the cabin we had one more day to spend in Boden. We started the day by going to my cousin’s house because I was going to do a sibling photo shoot with her two kids. Yes, the little guy I did my first smash the cake photo shoot with last year has got a little sister! Kids are never easy to photograph, especially when there’s two of them, haha. We photographed for about 20 minutes,…

Uppsala Cathedral – Uppsala, Sweden

Uppsala Cathedral – Uppsala, Sweden

One of the biggest tourist attractions in Uppsala has to be Uppsala Cathedral. I took a day trip to Uppsala in February and the cathedral was obviously on top of the list of things I wanted to see. The cathedral was built in the 13th century and has been used for the coronation for almost every Swedish monarch since then. The cathedral is also the final resting place for famous Swedes as Gustav Vasa and Carl von Linné which means…

Travel Throwback Thursday: Sharm el Sheik & Cairo 2010

Travel Throwback Thursday: Sharm el Sheik & Cairo 2010

I’m spending this rainy Thursday with looking back at photos from my second time in Egypt. In March 2010 I traveled with my family to one of the most popular tourist destinations in Egypt: Sharm el Sheik. This was less than a year before the Arabic Spring started and I have no idea how it is in Egypt right now, but back then we mostly stayed at the hotel or took organized group trips since roaming around freely felt unsafe…

Travel Diary: Boden Day 2-4

Travel Diary: Boden Day 2-4

I spent most of my Easter in my aunt’s cabin in the woods. We were 10 people living in the cabin during the weekend, but we were a lot more people during the days since many came and visit. This meant that I spent a lot of time just hanging by the fire with friends and relatives I see far too rarely. When I was younger I hated going out to that cabin, but now I just love it! I…

Travel Diary: Boden Day 1

Travel Diary: Boden Day 1

During Easter, I finally had the opportunity to travel again. Me, my brother and my mother took the night train from Stockholm and traveled to our relatives in Boden in the northern part of Sweden. One of my new year’s resolutions this year was to stop flying within Sweden and this was actually the first time I went to Boden with the train since 1999 (Dad, correct me if I’m wrong!) and now I’m really wondering why. We got on…

Travel Diary: Uppsala

Travel Diary: Uppsala

The day before my life turned upside down, I took a spontaneous trip to Uppsala. I just really wanted to explore some new scenery and I realised that I’ve never really been to Uppsala which is only like 40 minutes away from Stockholm with the train. Said and done, I bought train tickets the evening before and on the 13th of February, I took a morning train to Uppsala. I took a train which arrived just before sunrise so I…

Long Time No See

Long Time No See

Well hello there, remember me? It’s been almost two months since I last updated any of my social media channels, but it honestly feels like a lifetime ago since my life been pretty much upside down since the middle of February. It all started on Valentine’s day when I started to feel pain in my back and neck. I had done a day trip to Uppsala the day before and thought that my muscles were sore after walking 35 000…

Kafé Magasinet – Gothenburg, Sweden

Kafé Magasinet – Gothenburg, Sweden

During our day trip to Gothenburg, we had breakfast at the restaurant Kafé Magasinet. I actually found this place on Instagram over a year ago and have wanted to go there ever since. Why? Because the interior just looked so amazing! If you’ve read my travel diary from this day you already know that we walked quite a bit to get there, but it was just as I imagined so it was totally worth it. We got there just after 11 (and just missed their breakfast serving!) and we were actually surprised that…
