    Happy Birthday to Me!

    It’s my birthday! Can’t believe that I’m 21 years old now. I feel older but at the same time younger than my age. When I’m at work I blend in with my colleagues I feel older but when I’m at school feeling like I don’t understand a thing, I feel very young haha! I also feel old when I think about all the things I’ve done in my life. That I’ve already managed to do a lot of things for being so young. I’ve traveled many places, lived abroad and I’ve moved away from home to study in a city I had never visit before. I feel proud when I…

    I Tried Going Plastic Free for 30 Days

    In July I challenged myself to be a better person. After watching the Netflix-documentary ‘Chasing Coral’ I was devastated. The ocean and the corals are slowly dying. I wrote a long emotional post on my Instagram which you can find here and decided that I would try to be a better person for the ocean by going plastic free for a month. It was quite the challenge and it has definitely changed my opinion on plastic and I can honestly say that I’ve cut my consumption if not in half then at least a LOT. Of course I thought it was a good idea to film the entire process and make…

    Covered in snow

    Sweden is a mess at the moment, there’s no denying it. Every year the north of Sweden and only the north get a lot of snow. But this year, HOLY MOLY, the entire country is covered in snow. I haven’t been able to leave my apartment since Monday because of roads being closed down and car accidents everywhere. It’s recommended right now that we stay inside and do not get out in traffic if we don’t absolutely have to. My classes this week has been postponed so here I am. For those of you that are following me on INSTAGRAM, you might have seen my stories. On Tuesday we were supposed…

    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:…

    Current plans

    I’ve had a VERY hectic last week in my student life. I’ve decided to drop some courses and today I was finally accepted to some other courses. It’s all very complicated and I’m not going to rant about it too much. Something that is way more exciting is that my part of Sweden suddenly turned in to winter wonderland over a night! There’s snow EVERYWHERE! Which made me realise that I don’t own any winter boots so I strolled around in my sneakers the entire day and my toes were literally wet from the moment I left my apartment until I got back home. I also managed to squeeze in…

    My goals for 2018

    And just like that 2017 is over and a new year has started. This means that its time to set up some goals for 2018. I’m not usually one for setting goals but I really want to try it out this year. So I’ve come up with three major goals for this coming year. Climb a mountain This is my biggest goal for this year. Me and a group of family/friends is planning to climb Kebnekaise, which is the highest mountain in Sweden. It’s 2096 metres above sea levels so it’s not a walk in the park. This will take some serious dedication and exercise to be able to reach…

    My camera gear

    Hi there! Today I thought I would share one of the most questions on the entire world wide web; ”What camera do you use?”. Disclaimer: I’m not doing this because I want to brag or what ever. I just really enjoy reading other peoples blog posts like this so I wanted to do my own. I hope you’ll like it! Another disclaimer: photography is my main hobby and was one of my sources of income in high school. That’s why I have some expensive gear, you don’t need expensive gear to start out with, but it makes the process easier when you are more advanced. With all those disclaimers out…

    Who Am I?

    So I thought it would be fair to do an introduction of myself. So you guys know who’s on the other side of the screen. First of all, my name is Mie and I’m a student and a photographer living in Sweden. I’m 20 years old. Currently, I’m studying business administration with a focus on the tourism industry at university and right now I’m about 50% (as of November, 2017) done with my studies. There is, however, a problem. I don’t know what I want to do when I’m done! I guess time will tell. Right now I’m just focusing on living now and trying not to focus too much on the…
