Travel Diary: Boden

I’ve spent the weekend in northern Sweden, in a small town called Boden. My mom grew up in Boden so most of my relatives on her side of the family still lives there, and I try to visit at least once a year. I was there Thursday to Sunday and thought about doing a travel diary like the…

Travel Diary: Amsterdam Day 3

We started our third (and last) day in Amsterdam with packing all of our stuff and checking out of the hotel. We left our bags (which apparently were four this time, weird since we only had two when we got there, haha) in the hotel’s storage area and headed out to take the tram into the…

Travel Diary: Amsterdam Day 2

I’m home in Stockholm again, but I still have two days left from Amsterdam to write about. We started our second day in Amsterdam with breakfast at Coffee & Coconuts (which has the coolest interior ever!) and honestly had my best breakfast experience ever. I would probably hang here every day if I lived in Amsterdam, haha!…

Travel Diary: Amsterdam Day 1

I got up at 2 am this morning to travel to Amsterdam with my boyfriend. I’ve never been to the Netherlands before (if you don’t count my visit on the Dutch island Sint Maarten in the Carribean in 2009, which I don’t) so I have been super excited about going here! We took the early morning flight and…

How to Photograph in the Cold Winter

And once again the temperature is below zero and snow lay on the ground in Stockholm. This is really the part I hate most about winter when the temperature swings between -5° to +5°, leaving both wet slushes from the snow everywhere and dangerous ice spots where you can slip and fall (a lot of broken bones this time…

Helsinki Cathedral – Helsinki, Finland

 Helsinki Cathedral is such a distinctive part of the Helsinki cityscape. Just google Helsinki and you find this majestic building in pretty much every picture. It is also one of Helsinki’s most visited buildings with almost 350 000 visitors annually. The cathedral, who is called Helsingin tuomiokirkko in Finnish, was completed in 1852 and is still used regularly for…

Travel Throwback Thursday: Edinburgh 2017

This post contains affiliate links I love looking back at the travels I’ve done, and thought about starting a new category called “Travel Throwback Thursday”. Who doesn’t love a good alliteration, right? Anyway. In November 2017, I traveled to Scotlands capital Edinburgh together with Helena de Ilenczfalva and stayed there for two days. Edinburgh has been on my…

Rock Church – Helsinki, Finland

During my quick visit to Helsinki at the beginning of this week, I had a look at the famous Rock Church. Opened in 1969, this church was built into solid rock, hence the nickname “Rock Church”. It is one of Helsinki’s most popular tourist attractions and there was a lot of people who wrote to me…

Travel Diary: Helsinki

Here is my travel diary from my 40-hour cruise to Helsinki in Finland. I’m a costumer club member of a LOT of traveling companies, and actually got this cruise from Stockholm to Helsinki for free! It was a Christmas present from the cruise company Viking Line and I was even allowed to bring a friend. How nice?…

25 Things to do in Stockholm during the Winter

Are you looking for some cheap things to do in Stockholm this winter? I might be biased since I’m born and raised in Stockholm, but according to me, it’s one of the most beautiful cities in the world with charming architecture and fascinating history. I would absolutely recommend a visit and there is, in fact,…
