Sarlings Kafferosteri

Before I share anything from my adventures on the Åland Islands, there’s something you need to know first: Ålandic people have a nose for business, for good food & drink and especially for combining the two in a delicious way.

Food on the trail: what worked and what didn’t work?

Food is an important part of any trail. You burn heaps of calories on the road and your body needs sustenance to keep going. I found it a challenge to figure out what kind of foods would suit me to take on the Vasaloppsleden.

My 10 favourite social media accounts

There’s nothing better than going hiking or on some other outdoor adventure. Breathing in that fresh air and getting those muscles sore is all part of the charm. But sometimes, ‘armchair adventuring’ is nice too. I’m usually plugged into social media and I find it’s a great way to get inspired and perhaps learn a few things. SoContinue reading “My 10 favourite social media accounts”

Rate or nah – Part 2 of 2

As you may know, last December/January I travelled through New Zealand with my mom. We had an amazing time and I still have heaps of travels stories and photos to share. For this blog post, I thought it’d be a cool idea to review all the hostels that we stayed at during this trip (dueContinue reading “Rate or nah – Part 2 of 2”
