Of Monsters and Fries

After the first week in Tokyo I started to wonder where all the really over the top Kawaii people were. I was told that it’s a common misconception, the over the top street style we often see in magazines and blogs are actually not as widespread as you would think. Sure, you’ll see people with individual sense style and you’ll […]

Forgotten Castles

I recently realised that I haven’t posted all the images from our trip to Scotland last year. I guess I had plans to post them just before the the second trip but forgot about it when it was postponed. One thing I’ll be advocating for on that trip is to visit as many castles as possible. Scotland has […]

Park Love – Inokashira Park

I have this weird things with parks, I rarely visit the ones close to where I live but when I travel they’re usually in my top places to visit. I’m not particularly outdoorsy (I’m trying to change that though) and I’ve never been on a beach holiday so most of my travels are to cities. As […]

All that sparkles

It’s been a long time since I bought a pair of earrings. With the exception of silver studs, I make most of my earrings myself. I can’t recall how it all started but I remember really getting into jewellery making when I lived in Copenhagen many years ago. So when I was making research for my […]

Hydrangea Mania

I might have missed the cherry blossom season in Tokyo but I arrived just in time for hydrangeas.I saw them everywhere in Tokyo; in the well kept gardens, next to train tracks, on the balconies of skyscrapers and other unexpected places. I couldn’t stop taking pictures of them and I probably looked quit silly doing it. I got a curious […]

Out and about in London town

During easter I headed to London for an extended weekend trip. I have a friend that I had been promising to visit for years but I also wanted to get reacquainted with this metropolitan city. The last visit was probably 10 years ago! I went without a detailed plan, I knew I wanted to go to a […]

The Grand Adventure

Ok, so I might be misusing that word, adventure. I didn’t do any extensive hiking, visit a remote village or anything like it, I was technically on a city vacation. Yet an adventure it was! It was one of those life altering, confidence boosting and really inspiring trips. Not only was it the first time I […]

North Berwick

One day on our Scottish adventure we decided to get out of the Edinburgh and see more of the neighbouring region. We set our course towards North Berwick as it was on the coast and only a short train ride away. What we found was a very cozy and quiet town. It felt like we were the only tourists there when […]

Holy Craftmanship

Sometime when you travel you’ll have one attraction on a list you plan on visiting if you run out of other activities. For me, on our trip to Edinburgh the attraction was St. Giles’ Cathedral. It’s usually stained glass windows and their vivid colours that bring to the cathedrals but I’m also intrigued by the architecture and ornaments. Strangely enough […]

The magic of the highlands

After we booked our flights to Edinburgh Kea, the awesome travel planner that she is, suggested we should book some guided tours and see more of Scotland than just the capital. I was eager to visit a new country so I was open to all suggestions. After the tours were booked I didn’t give it more […]

Bonny Edinburgh

Scotland is one of those places that has been on my travel list but usually at the lower end behind countries like Japan, Egypt and South Africa. Then a series called Outlander came and all of a sudden my friends and I were longing for the Scottish highlands. We started talking about a roadtrip for the following […]

2015/2016

2015 was an event full year in many ways. I turned 30! It was a birthday I feared might cause some sort of existential crisis but what I found motivation. I decided to stop putting off things I want to do, ’cause if not now, then when? I guess it was me finally realising that […]

Cosy Brick Galore

In the past few years I’ve been trying to be a better big sister and that recently led me to the cosy city of Lund in Sweden and my youngest brother. It was a brief visit that involved a quick stop in Copenhagen (but more about that in another post) and an overuse of the map […]
