Exploring Bergianska trädgården and Hagaparken


On Sunday we spent a few hours exploring two different parks in Stockholm – Bergianska Trädgården and Hagaparken. Let’s start with Bergianska Trädgården which is a massive garden with the most amazing plants and trees. Water features in the garden and it’s next to this.. They had small signs everywhere with the name of the plants/trees and trust me, there must’ve been hundreds if not thousands! Greenhouse filled with exotic plants (closed for the day) We then drove to Hagaparken…

Midsummer in Stockholm


Another amazing weekend in Sweden – this time in Stockholm. Me and G flew on Thursday evening to Stockholm and went straight to my boy Arild and his lovely gf Segen.

Especially with a flower crown on top of my head. We drove to Nynäshamn and got picked up…

Pool side, tour of the favelas and a new hotel


And we’re back to yet another random day in Rio De Janeiro in Brazil. I woke up super early to catch the sunrise and was not disappointed! This mornings plan was to spend some time by the pool and then go on a tour in the favela near us. I was still deciding whether to go or not as we had heard gunshots there the night before.. We had breakfast as soon as the kitchen opened. Granola with yoghurt, fresh…

A meaty dinner at Fogo de Chão


We arrived in Rio on a Monday afternoon and went straight to our hotel (which I will show you soon, promise). It got dark pretty quickly and as we were still new to the city and area we didn’t want to walk around just yet. A friend of mine had recommended the restaurant Fogo de Chão a while back and so we decided to go there for dinner. We got ready in our amazing suite and I dressed up for the…

Parts of his wonderful family.  I’m from a pretty “cold” country where physical affection is, in my opinion, limited.. even from family members. To then visit a family like his, where I was flooded with kisses and hugs as soon as we met, was wonderful but new. Every single time someone entered the house or left, they’d kiss and hug, and you could see that it wasn’t by force. It was the most natural thing in the world and it…
