Bromo-Tengger-Semeru – Part I

In Indonesia, on the island of Java to be exact, you can find an amazing-looking volcano called Mount Bromo. This lies within the Bromo-Tengger-Semeru national park and is one out of two active volcanoes in the park. There are also two inactive volcanoes. The first one is Tengger, that is an old volcano which host… Continue reading Bromo-Tengger-Semeru – Part I

Europe, Flying

Flying in Sognefjord, Norway.

For a couple of month, I had planned to fly over to Norway (from Sweden, where I live), zigzagging through some fjords and then fly back again. I also wanted to stop in Florø for the night. But for all of us who live in the nordic countries, we know that the weather rarely behaves… Continue reading Flying in Sognefjord, Norway.

Venice – The most romantic city in the world?

They say that Paris is the most romantic city in the world, but I really want to put out a suggestion for the Italian city of Venice to be the winner in this category! I been to SO many romantic European cities. Europe is apparently a very romantic continent... And the city I remember most… Continue reading Venice – The most romantic city in the world?

Hiking in the Odle Mountains

Everyone that has an inch of an interest for hiking has seen that picture on Instagram: You know, that picture with a surreal looking mountainside, which is completely green on one side and dark, grey and hostile on the other. It´s almost like the mountain broke in half. If you haven't seen it yet. I… Continue reading Hiking in the Odle Mountains

Cage Diving with the GREAT whites!

I always had this fascination with the great white shark. Since the movie Jaws, which I watched like a hundred times, I was hooked (no pun intended) on the mystery this creatures exuded. They are beautiful, graceful, powerful and probably a lot of other words that ends with "ful". Ever since I took my diving… Continue reading Cage Diving with the GREAT whites!

North America

Roadtrip in the US

I always had a dream about driving in the desert in the US and listening to Creedence Clearwater Revival. Preferably in an old mustang, but more likely in a 2013 Hyundai. The latter I know because that is exactly what happened to us. It turns out that renting a cool car is much more expensive… Continue reading Roadtrip in the US

Learning to fly.

When you are a kid, you want to a police officer, a doctor, a firefighter or a pilot when you grow up. Our dreams usually change with age. When I was done in school and ready to get out in the work life, I had no idea what I wanted to do. I worked in… Continue reading Learning to fly.

Peek-a-boo and Spooky Gulch (hiking)

In Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in Utah, there are two really cool hikes you have to do in the slot canyons. This is the place to go if you would like to try some canyoneering without the dangers of going 127 h or getting lost in a crazy maze of red mountains. Entrance to the… Continue reading Peek-a-boo and Spooky Gulch (hiking)

Bungy jump in New Zealand

New Zealand is on my top three countries so far. I love that country to bits! It's probably my fault that it got its latest earthquakes... New Zealand is spectacular! It got deserts, rainforest, fjords, glaciers, volcanoes and so much more. Håkan and I spent more than 5 weeks there, but we still felt that… Continue reading Bungy jump in New Zealand

Diving in Komodo national park

Komodo national park is so far away from everything so it is kind of a miracle that I had the patience to go there. If you are in Bali it is super easy. Just take the next Boeing to the island of Flores. But Bali is also in the middle of nowhere? Relatively... I live… Continue reading Diving in Komodo national park
