    Gdansk Day 2

    The second day in Gdansk started with one of my favorite things in the entire world; hotel breakfast! I already wrote about our hotel and the breakfast HERE if you’ve missed it. Anyway I started the day with some bread, scrambled eggs, a smoothie and a boiled egg. A great start to our second day.     After breakfast we got dressed and decided to visit Gdynia for the day. We were lazy tourists and got a taxi to Gdynia, if we only realized earlier how easy it is to travel by train in the Tri-City area… The first stop of the day was at Akwarium Gdyńskie. It is a relatively small…

    Hotel Almond Business & Spa, Gdansk

    During our trip to Gdansk we stayed at HOTEL ALMOND BUSINESS & SPA and we were very satisfied. Hotel Almond Business & Spa is located cirka 600 metres from the Gdansk Old Town and is a 4-star hotel. I usually travel on a budget but since this trip was for my mothers 50th birthday we decided to get a more luxury hotel. I’m more of a hostel or B&B kind of girl but a 4-star hotel every once in a while is not that bad haha!   The rooms at Hotel Almond Business & Spa are modern and bright. According to me there’s nothing worse than arriving to an hotel/hostel and realise that there…

    Gdansk Day 1

    I’m back home in Sweden again after a lovely weekend-trip to Gdansk, Poland! I had never before visited Poland and was very pleasantly surprised by not only Gdansk but Poland as well. I thought I would do a blog post for each day as we visited other cities during our trip, that way it will be easier to find in the archive later. So here we go. We flew from Malmö Airport on the 12th of April and the flight to Gdansk only took an hour! So an hour later we arrived at the airport in Gdansk and took a taxi to our hotel (review will be up shortly!). We stayed…

    10 (9) cities in Europe to visit this spring

    It’s almost spring and for many that means some time off work (with all the holidays it brings)! It’s probably been a while since you’ve had some time off so a weekend getaway this spring might be perfect for you. Therefor I made a list of 10 cities in Europe you should visit this spring. Spring can be an amazing time of year, summer is just around the corner and the weather is getting warmer all over Europe, it’s the perfect time to explore a new city and a new country!

    My Favourite Place

    Welcome to one of my favourite places on Earth; Kullaberg! I went there last night with my cousin Sandra and best friend Louise. Louise just got back from a almost 5 month backpacking-trip in Australia and Asia so it’s nice to hang out again, I’ve missed her so much! So yesterday we drove all the way up to Kullaberg to watch the sunset and it was absolutely gorgeous. We did two little hikes, one down to the small lighthouse and one to a cave a bit further away. We didn’t climb down to the cave because it was freakishly cold and muddy so we stayed at the top to watch…

    Ten things to do in Copenhagen

    I’ve lived in the south of Sweden for the majority of my life and that means living very close to Denmark. I’m also part Danish and have therefor been in Denmark quite a bit, but mostly Copenhagen and Helsingør/Elsinore. So I thought I would share with you all, whether you’re planning a trip to Denmark or not, ten things to do in Copenhagen.   1. NYHAVN Nyhavn, the part of Copenhagen you’ve probably seen a thousand times on Instagram. With it’s colorful, picturesque houses by the harbor it’s a very popular destination during the summer. In summer Nyhavn is filled with restaurants with outdoor seatings overlooking the harbor. Nyhavn is…

    Next up: Poland!

    I’ve spent the last few days down south visiting my parents and as I told you in THIS blog post we were planning to roadtrip trough Denmark for my mums 50th birthday BUT change of plans! We are going to Poland instead! And I’m very excited since that’s a country I’ve never visited before. We are not traveling until April but I can’t wait! We are going to Gdańsk in the north of Poland and we are staying for three nights and I will definitely do a review of the hotel. I don’t know much about Gdańsk so had to browse the web for a bit to gather some information. So here’s some fast info:…

    Byrums raukar, Öland

    Hi! I actually left my apartment for something other than going to work och going to the vet (my cat broke a toe haha!) this week. I hopped into my car and drove over to Öland which is an island on the east coast of Sweden. I’m very fourtunate to live 5 mins away from the crossing bridge but I can count the times I visited on one hand. So when they called from work and asked if I wanted to take a day off I said HELL YES! And planned an adventure. My plan was to drive up to Byrums Raukar and hike and take some photos. Raukar is a Swedish…

    My travel diary: Edinburgh

    This post was planned weeks ago but exams and Christmas came in the way… But better late than never I guess! I’m back home from Edinburgh and it’s time to conclude my trip! I had never been to Edinburgh or Scotland before and I LOVED IT! Even though it reminded me of England it was completely different. We spent 3 nights in Edinburgh and we stayed at the Britannia Hotel West End. The hotel was nothing fancy or extra ordinary but it was a bed to sleep in and breakfast in the morning. It was actually the only hotel availabe relatively close to the city centre during our stay so…
