Travel Diary: Oskarshamn

With this blog post, I’m finally done with all the travel diaries from this summer! It took some time, but this means that I finally can focus on publishing the “fun” blog post with tips and things. Those are the ones I enjoy writing the most, but I have to say that in a year…

Autumn Markets in Stockholm 2019

It’s freezing in the mornings and I’ve got my first cold and that can only mean one thing – autumn is here. I’ve got mixed emotions about the autumn since it’s a season I both love (cozy sweaters, candlelight and millions of cups of tea!) and hate (wet, cold and dark!) in the same time….

Travel Diary: Leksand

I spent exactly 3 minutes at home after Gotland before it was time to go on my next trip! I got home, switched bags and then jumped into my parents’ car and drove to Leksand with them and my boyfriend. We have visited Leksand every summer for as long as I can remember since there’s…

Travel Diary: Gotland Day 3 & 4

DAY 3 After a night which had not offered enough sleep, we headed out for our last full day at Medletidsveckan on Gotland. We started the day with hanging around the medieval market and watched some of the shows in the area with everything from air acrobatics to humans swallowing fire. During the tournament the…

Let’s take a break from those heavy Auschwitz-posts by take a look at my second trip to Gotland this summer! During the first trip, I went there to have a vacation with my family and to compete in the Swedish Championship in varpa. That time we drove around pretty much the whole island, but this…

Travel Diary: Gotland Day 10 & 11

DAY 10 I spent most of the day at the competition site for the Swedish Championships in varpa as the day before, but this time only as a spectator and not as a participant. They were competing in an individual discipline this day and Stina and I sat beside cheering for our fellow teammates. In…

Travel Diary: Gotland Day 9

DAY 9 The day prior, my two teammates and I had managed to qualify for the semi-final in the Swedish Championships in varpa. Varpa is a precision sport where you throw a “stone” (=the varpa) at a stick and I’ve been competing in it since I was just a kid. We won the semi-final and…

Travel Diary: Västerås

Okay, I just have to share these photos from Västerås. Usually, I try to publish my travel diaries somewhat chronological, but I have to make an exception now and write about a trip I did this Thursday first. Photographing at a field of sunflowers has been a dream of mine for I don’t know how…

Travel Diary: Gotland Day 7 & 8

DAY 7 The weather hadn’t really been with us during our Gotland visit and according to all the weather apps, this day was going to be our best shot at a beach day. Our main plan was to hang out at one of my new favorite places on Gotland I discovered last year, Surflogiet, but…
