1: Where did you go for your first travel experience/holiday ?
I went to Gotland, a island outside Sweden, when I was 7 months old. It’s still one of my favorite places to visit. Mostly because of the beautiful and amazing landscape. On Gotland you find, among other interesting places, the city of Visby, which is a town where you can explore the medieval heritage and at the same time experience some good party, at least during the summer.
2: Which 5 items do you always bring on your travels:
1: Camera – the best way to remember a travel experience!
2: Walking shoes – I love to see everything by foot
3: Nice dress – I always feel more comfortable in dresses
4: SPF – I’m a beauty therapist and really picky with my skin.
5: The list – I use to do a list with things I would like to see before I leave. When I have it, it’s much easier to do spontaneous things and interesting stuff when you have done a thorough research. And hopefully not only go to places where all the other tourists end up.
3: Where are you now and where will you go for your next trip?
Stockholm. I’ll become a mom in a couple of weeks, so I have to wait a couple of months with my next trip outside Sweden. But I’m hoping for San Fransciso or Serbia soon.
4: What is your dream destination and why?
The Island of Galapagos! I would love to see all the animals and just experience the exotic nature.
5: What is your favorite travel picture that you took?
Haha! My favorite picture is from a trip to Tenerife Carneval in february 2013. I had a couple of great days there, but I was so tired the last night. Me and travel blogger Maria from Norway decided to take a walk downtown to see the last night of the parade. To see this was so very fun. A lot of people and every one were in their best mood! Suddenly a couple of guys drag us in to the Carneval and lift us up above there heads. Spanish television filmed it all live and we laughed, laughed and laughed. Afterwards I laughed so much I couldn’t breath. We are both tall Scandinavian girls and we are not used to be lifted up in the air.
6: If you could take 3 celeb travel buddies on your next trip, who would they be and why?
Superman! – Imagine to travel with someone that can show you everything from above.
Melissa McCarthy – Imagine all the crazy stuff that could happened! And how much I would laugh.
Dalai Lama – I would drink red wine and listen when he speaks about life and the secrets about life.
7: Are you a backpacker (budget traveling) or a flash packer (luxury traveler)? And what was the best backpack/flashback accommodation where you have ever stayed?
Both! When I budget traveling I love to stay at friends or families house. Then you really get to know the country, culture and people.
One of my best accommodations for flash packer is ‘Le Mauricia in Grand bay at Mauritsius‘ I love it and I really would love to go back.
Well, this was another edition of my new project: #TOTD ! I love how Elin answered the questions, and definitely an interesting pick of celeb picks to bring along on her journeys. I think I want to travel with Superman too! She inspired me : )
Hope you guys enjoyed this!
