Travel Diary: Landsort

Travel Diary: Landsort

My summer vacation has started off perfectly. It started with a day trip to Vaxholm, followed by a trip to Landsort, followed by Fjäderholmarna and tomorrow I’ll go to Sigtuna. I wanted to do more day trips and explore more places in and around Stockholm – and that is exactly what I’ve done. You do not have to travel far to find some new and interesting places. One week ago, my friend Annie (who has taken all the photos of…

Travel Diary: Vaxholm

Travel Diary: Vaxholm

Exactly one week ago, I took a day trip to Vaxholm together with my boyfriend and our puppy Stina. Vaxholm is an island in the archipelago which is about an hour away from Stockholm. We got there by bus from the subway station Danderyds sjukhus but it’s possible to travel there by boat as well. We didn’t take the boat since Stina hadn’t been on one before and we didn’t want her first time to be so long if she…

Travel Diary: Tystberga & Trosa

Travel Diary: Tystberga & Trosa

Last weekend I went on a little road trip to both Tystberga and Trosa. This trip was actually my mothers birthday present this year. She’s known as “crazy cow lady” due to her love of cows and she’s been talking for ages about visiting a “kosläpp” which is when the cows get to run out from the barn for the first time in the spring after being inside all winter. Said and done, my brother and I organized a trip…

Travel Diary: Boden Day 5

Travel Diary: Boden Day 5

When we got back from the cabin we had one more day to spend in Boden. We started the day by going to my cousin’s house because I was going to do a sibling photo shoot with her two kids. Yes, the little guy I did my first smash the cake photo shoot with last year has got a little sister! Kids are never easy to photograph, especially when there’s two of them, haha. We photographed for about 20 minutes,…

Travel Diary: Boden Day 2-4

Travel Diary: Boden Day 2-4

I spent most of my Easter in my aunt’s cabin in the woods. We were 10 people living in the cabin during the weekend, but we were a lot more people during the days since many came and visit. This meant that I spent a lot of time just hanging by the fire with friends and relatives I see far too rarely. When I was younger I hated going out to that cabin, but now I just love it! I…

Travel Diary: Boden & Älvsbyn Day 1

Travel Diary: Boden & Älvsbyn Day 1

During Easter, I finally had the opportunity to travel again. Me, my brother and my mother took the night train from Stockholm and traveled to our relatives in Boden in the northern part of Sweden. One of my new year’s resolutions this year was to stop flying within Sweden and this was actually the first time I went to Boden with the train since 1999 (Dad, correct me if I’m wrong!) and now I’m really wondering why. We got on…

Travel Diary: Uppsala

Travel Diary: Uppsala

The day before my life turned upside down, I took a spontaneous trip to Uppsala. I just really wanted to explore some new scenery and I realised that I’ve never really been to Uppsala which is only like 40 minutes away from Stockholm with the train. Said and done, I bought train tickets the evening before and on the 13th of February, I took a morning train to Uppsala. I took a train which arrived just before sunrise so I…

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…

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 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…
