In the afternoon on day two, my friend and I went to the capital of Åland: Mariehamn. The weather was still as stunning as it had been all day. In fact, it was quite hot! We had a walk around town, the docks/harbour, we visited a few shops, including some that sell Sanna’s coffee, andContinue reading “Mariehamn”


On my second day on Åland, my friend and I went north, to Geta. There we hiked through the beautiful area. Very versatile, rocky at places, smooth hiking in others, big boulders, and with gorgeous views. It was a very warm day. Armed with water, sunscreen and sunglasses, we made it back just fine. ThisContinue reading “Geta”

Lemböte Lägergård

During our time at the Open Water Brewery market, there was some time for me to explore. After all, I was merely the tag along (lol) and my friend Sanna the business owner. She suggested me to walk to Lemböte Lägergård, which had lovely scenery and access to the nearby lake. And so I did!Continue reading “Lemböte Lägergård”

Öfvergårds: the best apple juice you’ve ever tasted

Also at the Open Water Brewery market, were these lovely people pictured above: Jan and Anna Alm from apple orchard Öfvergårds!

First grade applesContinue reading “Öfvergårds: the best apple juice you’ve ever tasted”

They pride themselves in locally produced food and after having tasted it myself, I knowContinue reading “Sarlings Kafferosteri”

Sail into the sunset

Getting to the Åland Islands is super easy, even if you don’t have your own car. I used the Viking Line from Stockholm to Mariehamm. First I had to take a bus from Stockholm to Kapelskär (easy to book through Viking Line as well!). The bus left from the bus terminal near the central stationContinue reading “Sail into the sunset”

Arctic journey’s end

Our time on Spitsbergen was coming to an end. We packed our bags and were dropped off at the airport. It didn’t take long at all to get through security. The airport is tiny! But I love it, it’s got a charm about it. Then it was time to wait for our flight. Our planeContinue reading “Arctic journey’s end”


The arctic adventure continues! On our second to last day in Longyearbyen we were supposed to go on a snowcat adventure to an ice cave somewhere in the area. Unfortunately, the excursion was cancelled. As it turns out, there was not enough snow for the snowcat to ride on and get to the ice cave.Continue reading “Longyearbyen”
