Gothenburg from a Swedish point of view

DATE : February 19, 2019

COMMENTS : No Comments

Sweden’s second largest city, Gothenburg, is the perfect combination of nature and city pulse. A stunning archipelago filled with picturesque islands, an industrial harbour gone residential hood and a vivid restaurant scene are just a few of the highlights. Welcome to the Swedish west coast – and the hometown from Ellinor Thunberg. She will introduce you into this stunning swedish city. Have fun!

Gothenburg has it all. At least if you ask me. But having lived here for more than I decade, I’m likely biased – I’m from a small town one hour north of Gothenburg, but moved to a student flat in the city centre in 2005. Ever since then, Gothenburg has played part in forming the person I am today. A 30-something writer, mom, avid coffee-drinker and design enthusiast. I am proud to call Gothenburg home and if you – like me – enjoy the seaside, Scandi design and a good restaurant I think you will love it as much as I do.
When compared to the Swedish capital Stockholm, Gothenburg always takes ..

Stockholm is a place full of surprises – medieval buildings, Nordic gastronomic delights, little islands, hipster bars, extravagant museums and fashionable people. Here’s all you need to know about the Swedish capital in a nutshell.

What to eat Smörgåsbord
If you go to Sweden, you have to try a typical buffet-style meal. Depending on where you go, the food served may vary, but you can always expect to see both hot and cold dishes. Bread, cheese, butter and fish (salmon, herring and eel are popular) are always on the menu…as for the rest, well, just let yourself be surprised!
What to drink Coffee!
Photo: Melanie Wood Swedes sure like their coffee. Even if you’re not a coffee drinker, you have to go for a “fika” (coffee break) – step into one of Stockholm’s many coffeehouses, ask for a hot drink, sit, relax and mingle with the locals.

4 Reasons to Visit Lulea, Sweden

DATE : May 18, 2017

COMMENTS : 294 Comments

Lulea is a city in the North of Sweden, very close to the Arctic Circle. Although far, it is a destination worth visiting, and I am going to explain why!
Yes, I’ve been to Lulea! Yes, I had a great time. And by this time you probably googled Lulea and saw that it’s really high North on the map of Sweden:

You are probably thinking that all the fun there is reserved for the winter time! No, it’s not! Let me tell you why you should visit Lulea in the summer:
The midnight sun, the never-ending day!This one goes out for the workaholics and for the romantics that can enjoy a 4 hour sunset. Also if you ever imagined how would it be if there would be no night, but never got to experience it, this is a great place to start!
I went to Lulea in the middle of July, and to be honest, the “midnight sun” is more like a very long sunset that starts around 10:30 p.m. and lingers on until around 2 a.m. To make things better, just a few minutes after that, while there is still twilight, the sky will tra..

4 Places to visit in the Stockholm Archipelago

DATE : May 18, 2017

COMMENTS : 71 Comments

The Stockholm Archipelago (do not mix up with Stockholm city), or the Skargarden, is made up by 30 000 islands. Most of them are owned by an association and they are free to explore by anyone. Some of these are private properties which are for personal relaxation or which have been transformed into holiday homes which range from cozy red wood cottages to over-the-moon villas.
Other islands have been transformed into luxurious Swedish hotels where you can totally indulge yourself. Or you can even become a free bird and camp and explore the sights of nature and roast marshmallows at night, as most of the islands are free for locals and visitors.

Both visitors and locals are glued to stay here. It is an amazing place to tour!
Are you planning to visit the Stockholm Archipelago for the first time? Here is my guide of how to visit the Archipelago and get the best out of it!

1: Ride through history on two wheels Cyclists in Gotland (Michael Jonsson)
Sweden's biggest island, Gotland is known as ’the Island of churches’, with approximately 100 medieval churches spread around the island. In northern Europe, you wont find a place with more churches from the Middle Ages in such a small area. Today, they're open for visitors over the summer months, from mid-May to late August.
Stone ship settings, the remains of hilltop fortresses and burial mounds, as well as UNESCO’s first World Heritage Site — Visby’s city wall with church ruins and more than 40 towers — can all also be found on the island. 'Treasure island' is another name Gotland goes by and it is no wonder why.
