Travel Diary: Vaxholm

Travel Diary: Vaxholm

Exactly one week ago, I took a day trip to Vaxholm together with my boyfriend and our puppy Stina. Vaxholm is an island in the archipelago which is about an hour away from Stockholm. We got there by bus from the subway station Danderyds sjukhus but it’s possible to travel there by boat as well. We didn’t take the boat since Stina hadn’t been on one before and we didn’t want her first time to be so long if she…

How to Photograph and Back Up Your Photographs

How to Photograph and Back Up Your Photographs

This post contains affiliate links My photos means everything to me. They are memories of things I’ve done, places I’ve seen and people I’ve met. Therefore, it’s extremely important for me that all my photos are backed up. I’ve heard that one of the most common things people answer when they are asked the question “If you only could save one material thing if your house catches fire, what would that be?” is their photo albums, and that says a…

Bucket List – Summer 2019

Bucket List – Summer 2019

Starting today, I got two and a half months of summer vacation! I took my final exam last week and worked my last shift yesterday and do not have any more responsibilities until September first. I have worked and taken summer courses the last, I don’t know, maybe 10 summers, so this year I’ve decided that I want to take a break after the last 6 months which has been quite chaotic. You know, bought an apartment, quit my job,…

Hittaut – Stockholm, Sweden

Hittaut – Stockholm, Sweden

Last week, I tried a new activity that suits me so well. It was actually my mom who told me about Hittaut which is an initiative from Sweden’s orientation society to inspire people get out and explore more of their surroundings. It’s basically just a big scavenger hunt where you search for checkpoints with codes all around Stockholm with help from either a physical map or an app and it’s so much fun! Last week I had some time to…

Hammarbybacken – Stockholm, Sweden

Hammarbybacken – Stockholm, Sweden

One of my goals this year was to get better at exploring my hometown, Stockholm. With five months into 2019, I have to say that I’ve been working hard with that goal and already found some new favorites – and one of them is Hammarbybacken. Hammarbybacken is located on the south side of the city and is a big ski slope in the winter and a popular hill for interval training and bike riding during the summer. Hammarbybacken is one…

Travel Throwback Thursday: Hervey Bay 2016

Travel Throwback Thursday: Hervey Bay 2016

It’s Thursday so let’s do a Travel Throwback! I’m currently studying for my last exam this semester, so what fits better then a throwback on the best school assignment I’ve ever had? Back in 2016, my boyfriend and I lived in Australia and studied at University of the Sunshine Coast. I choose my courses at uni according to what sounded like the most fun and ended up studying a course called Marine Vertebrates since it said “field trip” in the…

The Royal Mounds – Uppsala, Sweden

The Royal Mounds – Uppsala, Sweden

It feels like I took these photos a lifetime ago, but I thought it was time to write some more about when I visited The Royal Mounds in February. A friend had told me about The Royal Mounds and it’s area with archaeological remains and I obviously had to go there when I took a day trip to Uppsala on my own. Since I’m the type of person who thinks it’s possible to walk everywhere I decided to skip the…

Storforsen – Älvsbyn, Sweden

Storforsen – Älvsbyn, Sweden

During my visit to Boden in April, I finally got to visit Storforsen in Älvsbyn for the first time in probably 20 years. Storforsen is one of the biggest streams in all of Europe and is a 5km part of the 410km long river Piteåälven. Its usual water flow is around 250 m³/sek and it never freezes, even though the water can get as low as -40° degrees during wintertime! It looks really spectacular, but the most impressing thing most honestly…

Travel Diary: Tystberga & Trosa

Travel Diary: Tystberga & Trosa

Last weekend I went on a little road trip to both Tystberga and Trosa. This trip was actually my mothers birthday present this year. She’s known as “crazy cow lady” due to her love of cows and she’s been talking for ages about visiting a “kosläpp” which is when the cows get to run out from the barn for the first time in the spring after being inside all winter. Said and done, my brother and I organized a trip…
