Bucket List – Autumn 2019

Bucket List – Autumn 2019

As I mentioned yesterday, I’m back in school again. That if something marks the end of the summer and the beginning of the autumn, so I thought it would be fun doing an autumn bucket list! I read a study that it’s easier to achieve your goals if you write them down, and since I managed to do so much on my summer bucket list I hope this list can contribute to an awesome autumn for me. Here are some…

The Summer of 2019

The Summer of 2019

I’m officially back in school so let’s have a look at where I’ve been this summer! I usually travel around Sweden during the summer (because let’s face it, Swedish summer is the best) and this year I’ve traveled more than ever! My goal was to be better at doing day trips to places close to Stockholm and that is one thing I’ve totally done this summer. Except for exploring more of Sweden, I also got to visit Poland for the…

Travel Diary: Gotland Day 1

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…

Sharing Photos From Auschwitz

Sharing Photos From Auschwitz

During my visit to Kraków this summer, I went to Auschwitz. The decision to visit Auschwitz wasn’t hard for me, I have always thought of it as a place that you probably have to visit to really understand what happened there. My biggest dilemma before I got there though (being a travel blogger and all) was if I really should photograph my visit there. During a 5-year-period, more than a million human beings lost their lives to such unnecessary evil…

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…

Travel Diary: Kraków Day 2

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. It’s actually one of the first sites on UNESCO’s World Heritage list and I got the opportunity to visit it together with EnjoyPolen and got a really great tour with a Swedish speaking guide. I’m absolutely going to write more about the salt…

Travel Diary: Gotland Day 9

DAY 9 The day prior, my two teammates and I had managed to qualify for the semi-final in the Swedish Championships in varpa. Varpa is a precision sport where you throw a “stone” (=the varpa) at a stick and I’ve been competing in it since I was just a kid. We won the semi-final and in the afternoon, it was time for the final. The rules in varpa are quite simple. The team who has the “stone” closes to the…

Travel Diary: Västerås

Travel Diary: Västerås

Okay, I just have to share these photos from Västerås. Usually, I try to publish my travel diaries somewhat chronological, but I have to make an exception now and write about a trip I did this Thursday first. Photographing at a field of sunflowers has been a dream of mine for I don’t know how long, but I have never found one nearby no matter how much time I’ve spent on Google – until now. I found a place called…

Travel Diary: Gotland Day 7 & 8

DAY 7 The weather hadn’t really been with us during our Gotland visit and according to all the weather apps, this day was going to be our best shot at a beach day. Our main plan was to hang out at one of my new favorite places on Gotland I discovered last year, Surflogiet, but we didn’t do much more than just sit down at the beach before we changed our mind. It was so windy and cold, and since…
