Diving in 4°c


I always have cold feet, 99% of the time anyway.. so when it was time to do my final exam to get my divers certificate and it was 4ºc in the water, well.. I put on as many socks as I could possibly fit in my dry suit. 7…8…9 pair of socks, and my feet still got cold! I think…

A Swedish Christmas | Part 2


    Donald Duck & his friends – From all of us, to all of you! Christmas Tradition!!! I’m pretty sure the government would revoke my citizenship if they knew I missed it last year.. It’s not optional. 3PM every Christmas Eve the whole family gather in front of the TV to spend an hour watching Donald Duck and his…

A Swedish Christmas | Part 1


Christmas, a celebration of the birth of Christ. Many countries celebrate it, but I didn’t quite realize how different the celebrations were around the world before I started traveling. After a new years in Scotland, travelling around and a Christmas celebration in Tasmania, I’ve had numerous conversations about the different ways of celebration. I also know a few people that’s…

Need < Want


What I need to do, and what I actually do doesn’t always go hand in hand. Today was proof of that if anything, I should have stayed at home, organizing and packing my bags, preparing myself for the big journey ahead that starts tomorrow. What did i do? … well .. not that. 

Stray from the path


I’ve been thinking a lot about straying from the path lately, taking risks and embracing the unknown. Even though I’ve been doing it a lot during this last year the moments still come where i find myself searching for excuses .. excuses that most of the time doesn’t even make sence. I am my own worst enemy. Sometimes you need…

Obscure looking mushrooms in the Swedish forest.


One thing we’re blessed with in Sweden in our nature laws. You’re allowed to roam freely in our forests and you’re also allowed to camp everywhere for a few days. (within reason) Our forest is full of eatable berries & mushrooms during autumn so it’s my favorite time of the year to grab a basket, take the car, stop somewhere…

My home town


Stadsparken, translated in to ” city park”. I’ve spent countless of hours in this parks, more nights than i can count. It’s the perfect spot to relax with your friends  during summer, and maybe enjoy a drink or two. Seeing my own Country, my own city through new eyes – with no stable ground. Well, I’ve been crashing at my…

La casa chaos


I left a family of 4 and now, a year later i came back to a family of 8.  Just around the time when i left my mother started seeing a guy, so i never really met him before i left. I met him in person for the first time last week, it was surreal to finally meet someone you’ve…

A sea of confusion.


Now, after being home a week i think i’m finally earthbound, back to normal so to speak.  Coming home was a lot harder psychologically  than i thought it would be, it almost felt like a slap in the face to be honest, and since this is my own little corner of the world, it’s a place where i’ll always be…
