Travel Diary: Riga

Travel Diary: Riga

What do I do when life gets too stressful to handle? Book a spontaneous trip abroad apparently! I’ve had such a couple of stressful weeks filled with way more things than I could possibly manage within 24 hours a day. My brain and body have constantly been working, so I decided to book a spontaneous trip to Riga just to physically get away from everything and I have to say that it was such a great decision. I brought my…

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 when I look back, I always find the travel diaries more fun to read, haha. What do you enjoy reading the most, travel diaries or…

Travel Diary: Leksand

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 a varpa competition there we really like to compete in, and that was the reason we went to Leksand this year as well. Here’s what…

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 night before there was a jester group called Narrarna which performed and as I mentioned in the travel diary, I laughed so hard. I saw…

Travel Diary: Gotland Day 2

DAY 2 We started our second day at Gotland during Medeltidsveckan with dressing up in our medieval outfits and head to the ruin Helge And to listen to a lecture about female warriors during medieval time. Such a great lecture and I was really pleased to be able to go into Helge And which usually is locked. The view from the top of the tower was just amazing! After the lecture, we walked to the medieval market area in the…

Travel Diary: Kraków Day 4

Travel Diary: Kraków Day 4

We have reached the travel diary from my last day in Kraków! We only had a couple of hours before the taxi was picking us up so we decided to only stay in Kazimierz, the old Jewish quarters were we had stayed during our visit Poland. This was probably my favorite part of Kraków since it felt genuine, no tourist shops or big brands like Starbucks or H&M anywhere. Just small stores with one of a kind items and so…

Travel Diary: Gotland Day 1

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 time it was completely different. This time I went there with my two friends Mimmi and Madeleine and we only stayed in Visby to be…

Travel Diary: Kraków Day 3

The excursion to Auschwitz in this post is sponsored by EnjoyPolen.com DAY 3 Our third day in Kraków was going to be the most emotional one since we were going to Auschwitz. We got the opportunity to go there with a Swedish speaking guide from EnjoyPolen which were really great since nothing got lost in translation. We got off the bus and got informed where the bathroom was and where we could buy drinks, had a 15-minute break and then…

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 the evening, we drove into Visby to get dinner at an Italian place called Isola Bella before taking a little stroll. I’ve said it about…

The excursion to Wieliczka Salt Mine in this post is sponsored by EnjoyPolen.com DAY 2 Our second day in Kraków started quite early with us getting on a bus which was taking us to Wieliczka Salt Mine.

I’m absolutely going to write more about the salt…
