Cinnamon roll / Hagabullen

The world famous cinnamon rolls take a whole new dimension – literally – here in Gothenburg. Go to Haga and its renown Café Husaren to try the very local “Hagabullen”: cinnamon roles the size of a very large hand. Add a couple coffee and you have the perfect Fika for two. Wait… Fika? If you have not been in Sweden yet, this might require an explanation: Fika is the Swedish art of taking a break and initiating small talk around a coffee usually accompanied by a sweet.

From the biggest parties of Ibiza to one of the smallest villages in Ireland

Most of my friends keep telling me how crazy I could be to choose to move for a half year to a place in the middle of nowhere (Eyeries, village with 66 inhabitants in South-West Ireland), when the past half year I spent in the most party island in the world (Ibiza, Spain). I know, I am a little bit extreme sometimes, but I think this makes me who I am right now. I wanted to know how the people live in Ireland, their habits,  but their nature is that fascinated me the most. Since I was studying in Sweden (remember this cause most of my travels and stories are connected to Sweden) I was thinking about visiting Ireland (that was already 4 and a half years ago).

What is Sweden? 

What is Sweden?  Sweden is: Swedish meatballs. Blonde hair, blue eyed Swedish gods. (A.K.A. Swedish guys). Or maybe the swede. The purply root vegetable that looks like a turnip….

Malmö - The sunny south of Sweden

Malmo is located in the south part of the country, in the center of region named “Scania“. It is believed that Malme is founded in the XIII century and the oldest records on the status of the city date from 1353, when the city was ruled by the Danish state. Malme was the second largest city in the country for centuries until he became part of Sweden by the “Roksild’s  agreement“ in 1658 year.

Mystic Sweden

Visiting Sweden doesn’t mean just to see Stockholm, Malmö or Göteborg. A small trip to Uppsala always worth your time. Considered as the fourth biggest city of Sweden, you can reach it in less than 1 hour by train from Stockholm. It comes with a huge history that hold thousands years, from the Vikings until nowadays. Seat of one of the oldest Scandinavian university, it’s the favorite destination chosen by students looking for relax and fun.

Sweden: First impressions of Halmstad

A new adventure has just started! Moving to Halmstad, Sweden got me really excited because I have yet to explore the northern part of Europe. Since I am from Austria, which is a landlocked country in central Europe, moving to Sweden might not sound like a big change, but moving to a city on the west coast with sea access is definitely a unique experience for me. I’m ready for the next 4 months here!

In minus 30 degrees celsius - My home town Boden - Sweden

It might not sound so amazing at first, but there is more to it than you might think. I’m going to write about my home town Boden. A snoozy little town up in the north of Sweden with a population of about 29 000. And I will be kind enough to show you where it is on a map!

Lund: Sweden

Apart from being the birthplace of world famous inventions like H&M, Ikea and Spotify, Sweden is one of the most beautiful Scandinavian countries. With great employment benefits and social security, locals are generally happy and content, making Sweden one of the happiest nations on Earth. 89% Swedish speak English which makes it very tourist friendly as well as a great student hub. In the south of Sweden, in the county of Skåne is a gorgeous little town called Lund. I had the privilege to live and work in Lund for around 2 years. Lund is a cobblestone, medieval, pastel-colored town. It is a safe, multicultural place with cute green colored biogas buses running around the town very efficiently until late at night. You will see a lot of bicycles around as almost everyone owns a bicycle and is one of the most prevalent modes of transport among students.

A Turkish Girl Lands in Sweden

My adventure in Sweden started with landing as a tourist with 3 bags in the middle of a night at Arlanda Airport. I was supposed to stay in this beautiful city for a few days and head to my next tournament. Well sometimes life doesn’t let you play the game on your own terms. After a few days I had already made my mind up and decided on my new home. When you search for a place to move to for so long all around the world, and nothing feels quite right and unexpectedly you fall in love… In that moment, pieces come together and life starts to make more sense. And you finally find home…
