    We’ll always have Paris

    Just like the actor Humphrey Bogart says in the final scene of the old classic movie Casablanca “We’ll always have Paris” We headed off for a weekend in Paris, a bucketlist destination for me. A bit of a dream come true. Jacob has not been as keen on the idea of Paris as I have always been, but the city proved him wrong. We loved every second of our stay and if someone asked us if we would go back, I am pretty sure that the we would give a unanimous yes. The city of Paris is huge. Enormous really. And everywhere you look there is another beautiful building to…

    What’s happening?

    Alright, it’s been a while since we checked in with you all, so I thought I would give you a bit of an update about our plans for the upcomming travelseason. But first off all, we have already had our first trip of 2024, we had almost a week of snow in Gdansk in the beginning of January. And our second trip, Malta during Easter and that gave us pooldays. And yeah… our third trip to Gothenburg with our friends for the Beer and Whiskey festival. Oh wow, that’s a badly updated blog, I know, and I’m sorry. And I will not promise you that I will get better, somethimes…

    Review of 2023

    We started the year 2023 with a weekend at our friend’s house on the outskirts of Borås, where we spent New Year’s with great food, wine, and laughter. Quite a good way to start the new year, don’t you think? But other than that, January was spent mostly at home. In late February we went back to Bologna in Italy for the second time. It’s a fantastic city and I don’t think I’m lying when I speak for the both of us, we would love to go back again. March is a busy month for us, workwise, but at the beginning of April, we headed off for a weekend in…

    Places for great food in Edinburgh

    I haven’t given you guys any recommendations for restaurants in a while, so I thought I would give you some of our most recent ones from our trip to Edinburgh in late November 2023. The first few recommendations are from places where we have eaten either lunch or dinner, but the later two are from early morning breakfasts. For the most parts, we order our separate plates for breakfast, and sometimes for dinner as well, but most often we share a plate and try to taste several different dishes instead. Fish & Chips and a baconburger at Auld Hundred Fish Pie at Deacon Browdys Tavern Loaded Potato Skins with slow-cooked…

    Edinburgh Christmasmarket

    It’s not really news to any of you all, that we simply adore Edinburgh, right? But even though we have talked about Edi like we know the city so well, and love it all the more, this is actually just our third time visiting the city. But not for a lack of trying… We have been through canceled trips to Edinburgh due to plane strikes, and of course, covid messed up one of our trips, which both times should have been during the Beltane Fire Festival at the end of May. To be honest, I have kind of given up on seeing that particular festival, but for this weekend that…

  • Greece - Rhodes

    Lazy days on the beach

    A post like this one kind of don’t need a lot of words right? When you look at images like this you can just feel the warmth from the sun, and almost feel the way your feet touches the rounded pebbles on the bottom of the ocean. The soothing sound of the waves as they rock your body back and forth. You close your eyes and enjoy the feeling you get when the sunshine hits your eyelids. Mmh, sunshine, summer and vacation. Greece is good like that! Have you ever been to Greece? If you have, what’s your favorite place? And if you could choose one place in Greece, where…

  • Italy - Turin

    We spent a weekend in Turin

    We have quite recently been in the city of Turin, which is in the northwestern parts of Italy, in the region called Piedmont. The city of Turin is mostly known for its Fiat cars, Juventus FC, chocolate, the Olympic games, and their collection of Egyptian artifacts. But if we’re being really honest, that’s not really why we were there… we were just in for a weekend to visit some local trattorias to enjoy the cuisine. We went on a few walks passing the sights, found some small cozy corners that were perfect for people watching, and enjoyed a glass of wine – or two. Usually, I book accommodations really close…

  • Poland - Gdansk

    Christmasmarket in Gdansk

    Street food, mulled wine, marry go rounds, Christmas music, candied apples, cotton candy, hot chocolate, a crazy amount of street vendors, and on top of that – the first snow of the season. Let’s just call it what it was, good luck. This was one of the first Christmas markets I have ever been to, as an adult. As a kid, I have been to a ton of them with my family, but as an adult, I have not really had the time to, so this was nothing short of amazing. I loved walking around and just window-shopping through the entire market. The feeling of happy families and new snow,…

  • Greece - Rhodes

    Back on the island Rhodes

    Oh yes, this is definitely a year of traveling within Greece for us, and to be traveling with our family. So we have just returned from yet another trip to the island of Rhodes in Greece, but this time it was not just us, we are traveling together with Jacobs’s niece and her daughter. This was actually our third time on this island. Our first visit to Rhodes was in July of 2016, together with my mother and our son. At that time we were staying in a small village, along the west side of the coast. We actually had another booking for Rhodes during 2020, but we all know…

  • United Kingdom - London

    A second impression of London…

    I feel like I should be in that Alanis Morrisette song, Head over Feet, that goes “You’ve already won me over in spite of me”… but no, London really didn’t win me over. It is a pretty amazing city, and some parts of it I really enjoyed, but the overall vibe is a bit too much for my taste. I would say that it moves too fast. The city is vibrant and colorful, the people are super-friendly and I do love all of the art. But still… I can’t quite keep up the pace. It’s quite an unpopular opinion right? The one thing I did enjoy the most besides the…
