Travel Diary: Crete Day 6

Travel Diary: Crete Day 6

On our sixth day on Crete, our rental car “Sleepy Gonzales” had to work those hills again. Me, my boyfriend and his brother wanted to get out of the charter bubble for a while so we got up before sunrise to go on a road trip and explore the island beyond the tourist streets surrounding our hotel. We witnessed the sun rise above the hills as we drove by and stopped in the middle of nowhere where there was a sign that…

Travel Diary: Crete Day 5

Travel Diary: Crete Day 5

Let’s continue with the travel diaries from my Crete-trip! We spent most of our fifth day on Crete at Baja Beach Club. It was the place that I had thought was a luxurious hotel during our morning walk our second day, but it turns out it was a beach club where anyone could rent a lounger. Most of our travel party (you know, we were 12 people) was happy with staying at our hotel but after being there for two days straight some of…

Travel Throwback Thursday: Avsallar 2013

Travel Throwback Thursday: Avsallar 2013

It’s Thursday so let’s look back at one of my past travels. In October 2013 me and my family rented an apartment in Avsallar, Turkey for my dads birthday. We were there for about a week and spent most of the time by the beach or by the apartment complex pool (which had water slides!). You should know by now that I’m an active type of traveller so we obviously also did some spontaneous activities like going up in the mountain…

Travel Diary: Gotland

Travel Diary: Gotland

Last weekend I got back to Gotland for the second time this year. This time I only had a brief visit to my favorite island since the main point with this trip was to compete in the Swedish championships in varpa. We got there late in the evening on Friday the 31st of August and left again in the afternoon on Sunday the 2nd of September and spent most of the time at the competition field, but I still had some time to…

Travel Throwback Thursday: Paris 2005

Travel Throwback Thursday: Paris 2005

In 2005 every child’s dream came true for me – I got to visit Disneyland. I went to the one in Paris with my family and we stayed at one of the hotels close to the park and pretty much lived on Disneyland our whole vacation. I have to say that my memories from this trip are sort of a blur (just like the scanned photos in this post, haha) which might be because I was nine years old or due to the…

Travel Diary: Gotland Day 8

Travel Diary: Gotland Day 8

Day 8 on Gotland was our last one.   We started the day by cleaning out the apartment we had rented, meaning that we had to say goodbye to this beautiful balcony view:         When the keys had been returned we drove into Visby and had some lunch at my favorite restaurant in the entire world: Crêperie & Logi, or “Creperiet”. Creperiet serves crepes (shocking, I know!) and they are just incredibly delicious! I think I’ve tried every single…

Travel Diary: Gotland day 5, 6 & 7

Let’s continue with my Gotland updates!   I got home over a month ago so it’s time to speed this up, haha. I’m actually going back there this weekend, but until then, here is how day 5,6 and 7 looked like during my latest trip there:   DAY 5 & 6   I’m combining day 5 and 6 since I ended up with an empty memory card from both of these days, haha. We spent day 5 at the same…

Travel Diary: Gotland day 4

Let’s travel back in time a bit to my fourth day on Gotland!   Time really flies because it was actually over a month ago I was there (!!) so I think it’s really time to start to blog about everything I did – especially since I’m going back to Gotland in two weeks, haha. This is what our fourth day on the island looked like!   We started off by visiting the “capital” of Gotland, Visby since my boyfriend…

Travel Diary: Leksand

Travel Diary: Leksand

I know this blog only contains Travel Diaries right now, but here comes one more! I hope that you find this kind of posts interesting because I still have a lot left from this summer, haha. This weekend I traveled to the middle of Sweden to a place called Leksand in Dalarna county. This might actually be the only place that I travel to every year, and even stay at the same hotel most of the time! Me and my family…

Travel Diary: Crete Day 3 & 4

Travel Diary: Crete Day 3 & 4

Our third and fourth day on Crete pretty much looked like day one. We spent the days close to our hotel, swapping between laying on the beach and by the pool. I know that most full time working people think that’s an amazing way to spend the day, but I get restless way to quickly. I mean, I can lay on my back and read at home – when I travel I want to explore as much as I possibly can….
