Paradise Island

Sweden is made up of many stunning islands. You just have to go out there and find them for yourself! When I went to Stockholm in June, me and my friends took a ferry out to a picturesque island called Grinda. Whether it was because we went in early June and school holidays hadn’t started yet or just because we were lucky – the island wasn’t too busy and we managed to grab our own spot on the rocks looking out at the never-ending sea that is a Swedish paradise.

A Turkish Girl Lands in Sweden

Tourist days in Stockholm 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…

Stockholm City Guide from the Perspective of a Local

Being born and raised in Stockholm I never used to spend a lot of time doing the ‘touristy’ activities. However, ‘absence makes the heart grow fonder’, and having lived abroad for four years made me appreciate my beautiful hometown that much more. Below, I will go through my personal top things to see and do here, as well as where to eat and drink.
