Going to the North pole is expensive. Like, really.
I’ve started planning my trip to Japan next year, and just had a look at plane tickets, and it was sooo cheap!! A friend of mine is living in China, and might be there still in a year, so I looked for tickets first to Hong Kong (to stay there maybe a week) and then from Hong Kong to Osaka, and for both it was just 4360 SEK!!!! (that’s like 670 dollars which sounds a lot because the dollar is so weak, but in Swedish Krona it really isn’t that much)
Gahhhhh just want to book it, but it’s too early to be sure that I’ll be able to actually go through with it
For those who are interested, here are some pictures from my trip to Barcelona. It’s written in Swedish, but I hope you won’t mind.
Yeeey the tickets are now booked!
17th to 21st April I will be in Barcelona! :D I reeeeally hope it’s warm and sunny there. But a friend of mine is there now, and they have 19 degrees so I guess it should be pretty okey in a month too.
Really hope I can find a job for this summer, so I can go somewhere for my birthday in september too. Then I’d probably go to Brussels.
Hey guys! Guess what, I’m planning a trip to Barcelona in April. I’m just going there for like 3-4 days, but if you have anything you can recommend in any way (like food, clubs, places to go, and so on), do tell! :)
The blog is written in Swedish, but if you want to see some pics of Bamberg and Nürnberg, feel free to have a look!
I wish that I for once could talk someone close to me into following my advice. I don’t even know why I bother trying to help anyone anymore, because really no one listens. People are unhappy with their lives, but not willing to make any change. No one is willing to take a risk. No one is willing to try something new. Some have a vague idea of what they wanna do, but they don’t do anything in order to reach it. It’s so fucking frustrating to me, but it should be frustrating to them.
I come from a small city. My teens were really rough, and I hated my life there. I really needed to get away. So when I was about to start high school, I saw my way out. I applied for an open high school in Stockholm, 25 km away from home. I went there and did an entrance test, and I got in. I moved there ALONE the same year as I turned 16. I took a risk, and it was the best thing I’ve ever done. And I’ve continued to take risks.
After high school I applied for another music school, with another entrance test and got in. Then I started uni. And after two semester I went on to study abroad in Vietnam, travel around there and in Japan, and then work in Taiwan. During the last 5 years I have lived in 7 different cities, both in Sweden and abroad. I have studied music, psychology, Asian studies, development studies and economic geography. I’ve learned basic Vietnamese and Japanese(though already forgotten most of it).
My point is. I am not sure what I wanna do with life. I have never been sure. I probably won’t be sure in another ten years.
BUT ATLEAST I TRY. ATLEAST I HAVE SOME DREAMS.
If you don’t have any dreams, then go and fucking invent some! Read about all the awesome places around the world, learn something new, be creative and open to new things! Please READ ABOUT THINGS.
YOU are the only limit you have (and maybe time and money, but in the first place you are you’re only limitation).
If you are unhappy with your life, and you don’t do anything about it… then fucking suit yourself. What is stopping you?! Scared of failure? Fuck that shit. I think being unhappy with you’re life is a bigger failure, than actually taking a chance at what you really want. I’m unhappy most of the time too, but atleast I’m trying. I have a million things I wanna do with my life, and I’ve already started to cross them off my list, one thing at a time.
Today it’s been exactly one year since I arrived to Vietnam, to spend about 6 months in Asia. Time has really flied this past year. And I’m so sad that I’ll be stuck in Sweden for atleast one more year before I can go back to Asia again. :(
- Doing a tour of Belgium because I love Belgium: Brussels - Ghent - Bruges.
- Doing a bike trip to France/Germany (though I’m worried about it raining??? I don’t wanna bike when it’s raining???)
- Island hopping in the Greek islands + visit Athens
- Visiting the French riviera, one big city + one smaller village
- Interrail in Eastern Europe (though traveling around that much might be a bit out of my budget, but then again Eastern Europe is prob a lot cheaper than other places)
- Finally visit Vienna, and prob go to Bratislava as well.
- Travel around the south of Spain, and visit places like Cordoba, Sevilla, Malaga, Cadiz, Gibraltar.
I’m not much for charter trips anymore, I don’t want to just go to a beachy place and tan for a week. But I really need some sun and some warmth, I can’t stand to stay in Sweden for the whole summer. :// Suggestions, anyone?
