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…

Travel Diary: Hillared Day 11-12

Travel Diary: Hillared Day 11-12

DAY 11 New Year’s! We didn’t have any spectacular plans really since the puppies had been born the 28th of December and we wanted to stay home and just chill with them. So it was me, my boyfriend, my boyfriend’s parents, four puppies and four grown-up dogs who had a calm New Year’s at home where we ate great food and I fell asleep about five minutes into the new year, haha. I’m such a party animal, I know! 3…

How to Maximize Your Vacation Days 2019

How to Maximize Your Vacation Days 2019

Does anyone know where January went? Because I have honestly no idea, haha. Anyway, if you’re a full-time worker it’s probably time for you to plan your vacation days for the year. I’ve counted and found out how you can be able to go on vacation for a total of 47 days and only use 18 of your vacation days! Keep on reading to find out how. I’ve actually never really had to do the “vacation days math” for myself…

Travel Diary: Hillared/Gothenburg Day 10

Travel Diary: Hillared/Gothenburg Day 10

During our 10th day in Hillared, my boyfriend and I took a day trip to Gothenburg. I’ve been to Gothenburg at least 15 times before but I can honestly say that I haven’t really explored the city that well. Most of the times I’ve been there I’ve been on a transit, stayed all day at Liseberg or been at an event so I really wanted to explore as much as possible during this – which we also did! We took…

Travel Throwback Thursday: Fujairah 2012

Travel Throwback Thursday: Fujairah 2012

It feels like I haven’t done one of these in ages, but it’s Thursday so let’s have a Travel Throwback on one of my previous travels! In the year 2012, my family and I went on a cruise around the Arab Emirates and Oman and our first stop was Fujairah. I knew pretty much nothing about Fujairah more than it was one of the seven Arab Emirates and I think I was sort of expecting a place straight out of…

Travel Diary: Hillared/Ullared Day 6-9

Travel Diary: Hillared/Ullared Day 6-9

DAY 6-8 During day 6-8 I honestly don’t think we even left the house since we were waiting on puppies to be born. My mother in law breeds Staffordshire Bullterrier’s and her dog, Bettan, was expecting puppies between Christmas and New Year’s. The 26th we celebrated my boyfriends birthday and the 28th the puppies finally arrived. I’ve known both Bettan and her mother Tova since they were puppies so it was quite special to be there for the birth of…

Travel Diary: Hillared/Borås Day 1-5

Now I finally have had the time to sit down and write about my last trip of 2018! My boyfriends family lives in Hillared in western Sweden and we went there on December 21st to celebrate both Christmas and New Years and got home again January first. We were there for a total of 12 days and since many of the days looked pretty similar I thought we could bunch up a few of them and start looking at day 1 to 5. DAY 1-5 I always get so…

2019

2019

2018 is passed and gone, so let’s look at what the upcoming year has to offer! This post was actually supposed to be published the first of January, and today it’s the seventeenth so you can maybe already figure out that blogging and traveling haven’t been my top priority the last couple of weeks. I think the main reason for that is the fact that my brain doesn’t work when there’s chaos around me, and there has been a lot…

My Travel Year 2018

My Travel Year 2018

I’m not sure how it happened, but there’s only one day left of 2018. Crazy, I know, but it’s that time of the year when everybody starts to look back at the past year and make a summary – and that’s exactly what I’m going to do in this post. In 2018, I went on 14 different trips within 6 different countries and spent a total of 59 days away from home. I’m honestly pleased that I’ve managed to travel…

Christmas Special: Christmas Traditions Around the World

Christmas Special: Christmas Traditions Around the World

Christmas is just around the corner and this is my last Christmas Special! I’ve already mentioned that I’m not much for traditions, but I think I still celebrate Christmas as a typical Swede. This year, I’ve traveled to the west coast of Sweden to celebrate with my boyfriends family and we’re going to eat a lot of food, watch Kalle Anka at three a clock and get a visit from Santa and exchange Christmas gifts just as about every household…
