Travel Diary: Sunne

Travel Diary: Sunne

I’ll take a break from my Gotland-updates to write about this weekend which I spent in Sunne. Sunne is a small town in Värmland with around 5 000 citizens and is probably most famous for the writer Selma Lagerlöf who lived there and won a Nobel price in literature 1909. The town is located next to the lake Fryken so you pretty much always see water. I honestly didn’t get a great feeling about Sunne, but I might not be the best…

Travel Diary: Gotland day 3

Travel Diary: Gotland day 3

  Our third day on Gotland was just as hot as the day prior which only had one solution: Beach day!   We usually keep away from the beach in Tofta since it’s the most famous one on Gotland and is often crammed with people, but I had found a place called Surflogiet on Instagram which is located on Tofta beach and really wanted to go there – and so we did. We got there around 10 am and to…

Travel Diary: Gotland day 1 & 2

  Time really flies.    I got home this Sunday after spending a week on my beloved island Gotland and now I’m repacking my bag because I’m traveling to a city in Sweden called Sunne tomorrow morning.

15 Reasons Why You Should Visit Gotland this Summer

15 Reasons Why You Should Visit Gotland this Summer

  I’m currently located in one of my favourite places in the world – the island Gotland.   My “Swedish Summer” just isn’t complete before I’ve visited the island and walked the cobbled streets in Visby, driven on the roads with flowers on the side and witnessed the fields that go on for miles and miles. Not to mention the fact that it’s an Island which means that the ocean is never far away. I might not update the blog quite…

Travel Diary: Hammersta

Travel Diary: Hammersta

  Earlier this week, me and my friend Annie went on a quite spontaneous trip to Hammersta nature reserve.   Our original idea was to visit an island in the Stockholm archipelago named Huvudskär which only is accessible by boat like two times every week during summer. Unfortunately, there was a big power failure in Stockholm that day which knocked out the public transportation so much that we missed the only boat to Huvudskär that day with about two hours,…

Travel Diary: Björnö

Travel Diary: Björnö

  Me and my friend Annie took a trip to the peninsula Björnö in the Stockholm archipelago yesterday.   None of us have been to Björnö (which has been a nature reserve since 1983) before so we had a lot to explore! We took the bus from Slussen in the central parts of Stockholm to get there which took a little less than an hour which makes it a perfect destination if you want to get out of the city for…

10 Reasons Why I’m Happy I Was Born in Sweden

10 Reasons Why I’m Happy I Was Born in Sweden

  Happy National Day of Sweden! 🇸🇪    We Swedes are extremely bad at celebrating our national day, most of us do not even know why we have one. It might not be so odd since June 6 only been Swedens national day since 1983, and a public holiday since 2005 which might explain why we still haven’t got the hang of it. I think we have to look at our neighbors Norway to see how a proper national day should be…

Kalmar Castle – Kalmar, Sweden

Kalmar Castle – Kalmar, Sweden

  The most famous thing about Kalmar must be Kalmar Castle.   The history of this legendary castle goes back 800 years and it has played an important part in the Swedish history. It has been everything from a fortress defending Sweden from Denmark, to a royal palace that the family Vasa rebuilt into a Renaissance palace after European fashion. Today, the castle is open for visitors all year long and is the best preserved Nordic Renaissance castle.        Inside the castle,…

Mahalo – Stockholm, Sweden

Mahalo – Stockholm, Sweden

  One of my favorite restaurants/cafes in my hometown Stockholm is Mahalo.   The place is beautiful, the staff super friendly and everything I’ve tried on the menu is delicious – and none of the things I mentioned is even the best part! The best thing about Mahalo is that everything is vegan! I try to eat as much vegan as possible because of both environmental and ethical reasons and it’s just so easy to make a good and sustainable food…

Travel Diary: Kalmar day 3

Travel Diary: Kalmar day 3

On our third and last day during our Easter weekend road trip, we visited Kalmar Castle. It opened at 10 am and since we lived pretty much next to it, we slept in and had a long breakfast at the hotel before heading over. The castle has two floors containing everything from a church to grand dining rooms to dungeons. The castle is almost a thousand years old (!!!) and it has happened a lot there throughout the history so…
