    Five Ways to be a Tourist in your Hometown

    I grew up in several places but the small town of Landskrona in south of Sweden with approximately 30,000 inhabitants is what I call my hometown. You might have grown up in a similar town and still live there or like me; moved away. I realised after I moved that I really don’t know that much about my actual hometown. So everytime I go home to visit my parents I try to explore a bit. Right now I’m home for a couple of days before I head off to Greece so I decided to make the most of it and explore something new whilst I’m here. I can’t be the…

    What I’m Packing for a Week on a Greek Island

    This post contains adlinks, which means that I earn a small amount if you click on/buy something from these links. I did an Instagram-poll the other day (@STROKEOFADVENTURE) and you seemed interested in knowing what I’m packing for my week on Kos, Greece. Can’t believe it’s almost time to go. But anyways let’s get in to my suitcase. My suitcase is from Epic and my model is called CRATE EX WILDBLOSSOM. I have the medium size and I really like it. It has a hard shell and fits everything I need. I haven’t used it in a while though since I’ve only been on weekend trips the last year haha. It’s nice…

    Gdansk Day 3

    On our third day in Gdansk we rised early and hopped on a train to Sopot! The sun was shining and it could not be a better day for a trip to the ocean side. It appeared as the entire of Poland thought the same thing as us and let’s just say; we we’re not alone in Sopot this day haha. We started our trip to Sopot by visiting “The Crooked House” or Krzywy Domek which is its actual name. We sat down at the cafe and drank some coffee and tea. Fun story: I don’t drink coffee, I hate it actually. But the lady in the cafe must’ve missunderstood…

    Next up: Greece

    It’s been about a month since I got back home from Poland and I’ve already booked another trip haha! For those who say that you can’t afford to travel when you are a student: you are WRONG! I booked my next trip about a week ago and I’ve already announced it over on my Instagram (DON’T FORGET TO FOLLOW ME THERE!). But anyway; I’m going to Greece! To Kos more specifically! I’ve never been to Greece before so I’m so excited. We are leaving on the 7th of June and will be gone for a week!  Picture from when I visited Cyprus in 2014. This was the last time I…

    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…

    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…
