10 unmissable experiences to turn your first solo trip into a life-long memory

•••
I recently went on the first holiday in years. Now, you might wonder whether I've lost my mind - because clearly I am a travel blogger who travels a lot and goes on 5-10 trips per year. And to an extent that is true - I travel loads, get to experience different cultures and countries and share my experiences here and on my own blog. But that's not a holiday.[...]

9 Instagrammers to follow this Autumn

•••
I won't ever get tired of talking about how much I love fall. My favorite season is finally back. With changing leaves and woollen sweaters everywhere, I finally find myself having some more time again to re-decorate my apartment, work on that huge pile of unread books that only got bigger over summer (#sorrysooonotsorry) and dream about faraway places.

Yes, you read the title right, and yes I'm letting you know that contrary to what most top travel blogs will say these days, it's perfectly ok to visit whatever monument or museum you've had your heart set on, no matter how photographed and popular it may be. “But everyone says to adventure off the beaten track and now you’re saying I should still make t[...]

•••
There's nothing good about the end of summer - except of course that the best time to travel starts right now! Everybody likes a good summer vacation, but to be honest, traveling during the peak season can be a drag. After all, you're not the only one who's had that idea! If you're lucky enough to take time off outside the standard school holidays (sorry,[...]

15 ways to keep that vacation feeling - even if summer is over and you're broke

•••
September is here. For most of us this means summer is over, money is nowhere to be found, vacation days are all used and it is time to get back to reality. For me – living in Sweden – this also means the start of a darkness that will end earliest in the end of March. Depressing right? BUT. That travel season is over doesn't need to be the end of everythi[...]

Five instagrammers who shoot for the stars

•••
On my first trip outside of Europe I went to the Himalayas with a group of school friends. We set off from Ladakh in Northern India and hiked for two weeks in the complete wilderness, barely seeing a soul. Each evening, before going to sleep in my tent, I remember gazing up at the stars and trying to spot The Plough, the only constellation I could recognize [...]

10 trips to do before you get married

•••
I feel like the title of this post needs a little bit of explaining. Of course, I'm not saying that once you get married, the traveling stops. In fact, if you love travel as much as me, being able to travel with or without your partner after you get hitched should be a requisite to even say yes in the first place. Then again, maybe you're not the type who wa[...]

10 documentaries to change how you see the world

•••
What I love about documentaries is that they open a window onto new people, places and cultures. Film makers can take you to locations that it might otherwise be difficult, if not impossible, to access. And not only do documentaries give you the opportunity to learn about life in other places, but they also have the amazing capacity to change the way we see [...]
