Travel Throwback Thursday: Koh Samet & Bangkok 2012-2013

Travel Throwback Thursday: Koh Samet & Bangkok 2012-2013

Just as about 20 000 Swedes do every year, I’ve celebrated one Christmas in Thailand. The year was 2012, and I thought we could take a look at that trip in today’s Travel Throwback Thursday! This was my second time in Thailand (read about my first time here) and this time I traveled to the island Koh Samet together with my family. We got there with a speedboat that dropped us off so far from the beach that we had to walk…

Christmas Special: Christmas Markets in Stockholm 2018

Christmas Special: Christmas Markets in Stockholm 2018

Hey guys, it’s December so bring on those Christmas feelings! I thought I’m going to do a Christmas related blog post every Sunday until Christmas and in this first one, I thought I should share information about all the Christmas markets I’ve found in Stockholm this year! I’ve already been to a few of them (photos in this post are from Skansen’s and Stortorget’s Christmas markets) and I’ll hope I get to catch some more since I still haven’t got that…

Travel Throwback Thursday: Copenhagen 2016

Travel Throwback Thursday: Copenhagen 2016

In today’s Travel Throwback Thursday I want to look back at my trip to Copenhagen in 2016. To even understand this trip though, we have to look back even further to the summer of 2015 when I was one of the summer workers at the amusement park Gröna Lund in Stockholm. Gröna Lund had put up goals in customer satisfaction and sales that summer, and if we reached those goals all employees would receive a trip to the amusement park…

Travel Throwback Thursday: Hurghada & Cairo 2004

Travel Throwback Thursday: Hurghada & Cairo 2004

Let’s do another really old travel throwback! This Thursday, I thought that we could take a look at my first time to Egypt in 2004 when I visited Hurghada and Cairo. My parents got married at the airport just before departure so this was some sort of wedding vacation together with many of our relatives which were really fun since me and my brother (8 and 4 years old at the time) had many adults to play in the pool with, haha. We…

Stockholm’s Most Insta-Friendly Spots

Stockholm’s Most Insta-Friendly Spots

I might be biased, but Stockholm is one of the prettiest cities on earth. I just love the fact that Stockholm has so many historical buildings, big parks you can roam around freely in and that it’s surrounded by water – and all of this things make it a great place to photograph material to your Instagram! You have probably already heard about the cherry trees in the King’s garden, the walkway Monteliusvägen at Södermalm or the most photographed spot…

Travel Throwback Thursday: Muscat 2012

Travel Throwback Thursday: Muscat 2012

It’s once again Thursday so let’s have another throwback on one of my previous travels. Today I’ve opened up the hard drive with photos from a cruise I went on with my family in the spring of 2012 when we visited Fujairah, Dubai and Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, and Muscat in Oman and I thought we could take a closer look on that. I had honestly never even heard of Oman before we visited it, but it’s a country with a…

Gamla Orangeriet – Stockholm, Sweden

Gamla Orangeriet – Stockholm, Sweden

One of my favorite cafés in my hometown Stockholm is Gamla Orangeriet located north of the city center. It’s placed right in the Bergianska Gardens and is actually in a conservatory building where oranges grow all year round which gives a really beautiful and quite unique interior. For those who like light and rustic places, this is the café for you! I’m probably visiting this Gamla Orangeriet more often than I should since I sometimes work extra at Stockholm University which…

How to Photograph with a Smartphone

How to Photograph with a Smartphone

You do not need a big and expensive DSLR camera to take good photographs. Yes, the quality gets better and you get more possibilities with a DSLR than you get with your smartphone’s camera, but I promise you that it’s possible to take amazing photos with your smartphone! I often say that the best camera is the one you have with you, and in today’s society pretty much everyone walks around with a smartphone with a camera in their back…

Travel Throwback Thursday: Billund 2003

Travel Throwback Thursday: Billund 2003

Since I have some sort of “amusement park theme” going on right now on the blog I thought we could do a throwback on my trip to Legoland in Billund 2003 today! I really enjoy looking back on these really old travels I’ve done since they bring back so many memories, and this time I really have to trust those memories since we had very few photos. I was only eight years old at the time but I do remember…
