Corner Bakery – Amsterdam, Netherlands

Whoever said money can’t buy happiness, has obviously never bought a Freak Shake from the Corner Bakery in Amsterdam, haha! I was looking on Instagram for cool places to visit in Amsterdam before our trip there when I came across a photo with one of these amazing milkshakes and pretty much decided on the spot that I had…

Travel Diary: Sandhamn

Yesterday, I met up with my friend Annie at 6 am to take a day trip to Sandhamn in the Stockholm archipelago. Even though the 30 000 islands outside of Stockholms central is just a boat ride away, I’ve never been to a single island before. So bad, I know! Annie, on the other hand,…

Hotel2Stay – Amsterdam, Netherlands

This post contains affiliate links During our visit to Amsterdam, we stayed at Hotel2Stay*.   It’s a hotel next door to Sloterdijk Station where you can get to the airport in 10 minutes or the Central Station in 5 minutes with the train. We lived in a Queen Studio with a big double bed and a…

Mumin Kaffe – Helsinki Finland

When I was in Helsinki at the beginning of the year, I had brunch in this cute cafĂ© called Mumin Kaffe. Since we only had 6 hours in Helsinki, we didn’t want to spend much time on the whole, “We need to eat something”-process and decided to find a place beforehand where we could combine breakfast and lunch. I googled…

Travel Diary: Boden

I’ve spent the weekend in northern Sweden, in a small town called Boden. My mom grew up in Boden so most of my relatives on her side of the family still lives there, and I try to visit at least once a year. I was there Thursday to Sunday and thought about doing a travel diary like the…

Travel Diary: Amsterdam Day 3

We started our third (and last) day in Amsterdam with packing all of our stuff and checking out of the hotel. We left our bags (which apparently were four this time, weird since we only had two when we got there, haha) in the hotel’s storage area and headed out to take the tram into the…

Travel Diary: Amsterdam Day 2

I’m home in Stockholm again, but I still have two days left from Amsterdam to write about. We started our second day in Amsterdam with breakfast at Coffee & Coconuts (which has the coolest interior ever!) and honestly had my best breakfast experience ever. I would probably hang here every day if I lived in Amsterdam, haha!…

Travel Diary: Amsterdam Day 1

I got up at 2 am this morning to travel to Amsterdam with my boyfriend. I’ve never been to the Netherlands before (if you don’t count my visit on the Dutch island Sint Maarten in the Carribean in 2009, which I don’t) so I have been super excited about going here! We took the early morning flight and…
