Travel Throwback Thursday: Hervey Bay 2016

Travel Throwback Thursday: Hervey Bay 2016

It’s Thursday so let’s do a Travel Throwback! I’m currently studying for my last exam this semester, so what fits better then a throwback on the best school assignment I’ve ever had? Back in 2016, my boyfriend and I lived in Australia and studied at University of the Sunshine Coast. I choose my courses at uni according to what sounded like the most fun and ended up studying a course called Marine Vertebrates since it said “field trip” in the…

Travel Throwback Thursday: Sharm el Sheik & Cairo 2010

Travel Throwback Thursday: Sharm el Sheik & Cairo 2010

I’m spending this rainy Thursday with looking back at photos from my second time in Egypt. In March 2010 I traveled with my family to one of the most popular tourist destinations in Egypt: Sharm el Sheik. This was less than a year before the Arabic Spring started and I have no idea how it is in Egypt right now, but back then we mostly stayed at the hotel or took organized group trips since roaming around freely felt unsafe…

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 Throwback Thursday: Koh Samet & Bangkok 2012-2013

Travel Throwback Thursday: Koh Samet & Bangkok 2012-2013

Just as about 20 000 Swedes do every year, I’ve celebrated one Christmas in Thailand. The year was 2012, and I thought we could take a look at that trip in today’s Travel Throwback Thursday! This was my second time in Thailand (read about my first time here) and this time I traveled to the island Koh Samet together with my family. We got there with a speedboat that dropped us off so far from the beach that we had to walk…

Travel Throwback Thursday: Copenhagen 2016

Travel Throwback Thursday: Copenhagen 2016

In today’s Travel Throwback Thursday I want to look back at my trip to Copenhagen in 2016. To even understand this trip though, we have to look back even further to the summer of 2015 when I was one of the summer workers at the amusement park Gröna Lund in Stockholm. Gröna Lund had put up goals in customer satisfaction and sales that summer, and if we reached those goals all employees would receive a trip to the amusement park…

Travel Throwback Thursday: Hurghada & Cairo 2004

Travel Throwback Thursday: Hurghada & Cairo 2004

Let’s do another really old travel throwback! This Thursday, I thought that we could take a look at my first time to Egypt in 2004 when I visited Hurghada and Cairo. My parents got married at the airport just before departure so this was some sort of wedding vacation together with many of our relatives which were really fun since me and my brother (8 and 4 years old at the time) had many adults to play in the pool with, haha. We…

Travel Throwback Thursday: Muscat 2012

Travel Throwback Thursday: Muscat 2012

It’s once again Thursday so let’s have another throwback on one of my previous travels. Today I’ve opened up the hard drive with photos from a cruise I went on with my family in the spring of 2012 when we visited Fujairah, Dubai and Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, and Muscat in Oman and I thought we could take a closer look on that. I had honestly never even heard of Oman before we visited it, but it’s a country with a…

Travel Throwback Thursday: Billund 2003

Travel Throwback Thursday: Billund 2003

Since I have some sort of “amusement park theme” going on right now on the blog I thought we could do a throwback on my trip to Legoland in Billund 2003 today! I really enjoy looking back on these really old travels I’ve done since they bring back so many memories, and this time I really have to trust those memories since we had very few photos. I was only eight years old at the time but I do remember…

Travel Throwback Thursday: Prachin Buri, Koh Chang & Bangkok 2006

Travel Throwback Thursday: Prachin Buri, Koh Chang & Bangkok 2006

The days pass by so quick and now it’s Thursday again so let’s have another Travel Throwback! Swedes have for some reason always loved travelling to Thailand during the winter months and my first time there was in 2006. I was ten years old at the time and we were three families travelling together and all had kids in about the same age which were great! I think we were there for about three weeks and I remember that as a homework from…

Travel Throwback Thursday: Brisbane 2016

Travel Throwback Thursday: Brisbane 2016

It’s Thursday so let’s look back on my trips to Brisbane in 2016! My boyfriend and I studied at the University of the Sunshine Coast for one semester and Brisbane was the closest big city nearby so we had a few visits there during our time in Australia. I remember that I had a hard time describing Brisbane already back then since it’s a city with not that much personality. Don’t get me wrong, I love everything about Australia and Brisbane…
