San Francisco – The (foggy) City By The Bay

I’ve had the pleasure of visiting San Francisco a couple of times during the last 3 years. It’s a beautifully located city and the approach when arriving by air is stunning! The bay and the city… Alcatraz island and the famous Golden Gate Bridge. THE BEST WAY TO GET TO SAN FRANCISCO We’ve been flying […]

Tomorrow can (so) wait at the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray

We recently spent 4 nights at this amazing beach hotel in Dubai, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray. I seriously don’t know how to describe it properly as no words, not even superlatives, seem to be enough. Imagine you’re part of an Arabian adventure, in a beautiful palace, in beautiful surroundings, plenty of gorgeous food and on top of all […]

I ♥ NY. A lot.

Top of the list, Head of the heap, King of the hill…… New York, Neeeeeeeew Yooooooork….. I love New York. I can’t think of any other big city that I’d choose to travel to if I could choose… It has everything that you can wish for and then it’s like walking around in a movie….the different […]

“Rustik Elegans och Jordnära Njutning” at Ästad Vingård

This gorgeous place uses the slogan “Rustik Elegans och Jordnära Njutning“, which is really difficult to translate into English but meaning something like “Enjoy nature’s basic elements combined with rustic elegance“. It does sound better in Swedish, but once you’ve visited this amazing place, you’ll understand the meaning of it. Until 4 months ago, I […]

Amaaaaazing Thailand… Bangkok and Koh Yao Yai

We love holidaying in Thailand and keep coming back again, and again….. Last time, we chose to fly from Copenhagen on Qatar Airways, via Doha. It was nice with halfway break at the new airport in Doha. Great facilities like free (fast) wi-fi, great shops (like Lindt chocolates pick & mix… and Tiffany…), good food […]

Barcelona

We recently spent some days in Barcelona,as an extension to a 7-night western Mediterranean cruise with Celebrity Cruises. Apart from the food, we love this city as it has everything…. a cosmopolitan feeling, great shopping, plentiful beautiful architecture, a beach, a lovely old town, great tapas restaurants and so on…. The city has become very […]

Strip House (Manhattan Midtown)

The Strip House (Midtown branch) is a MUST visit restaurant if you’re into great steaks. For a Scandinavian (and probably for some others too…..), the name doesn’t immediately leads you to a restaurant. However, it is indeed one of the best restaurant experiences. Ever. And anywhere in the world. We were very lucky to get a table […]

My new favourite Miami hotel – MONDRIAN South Beach

We always try to escape Scandinavia during the month of November… This year we spent our November holiday in Miami, followed by another great Celebrity cruise. South Beach is our favourite place to stay in Miami and this time around we wanted to stay on the bay side and booked MONDRIAN South Beach, already in February. […]

På äventyr med Rocky Adventure

‘ För 10-12 år sedan hade jag nöjet av att ha Björn Westin på en av mina safari resor i Kenya. Han berättade för mig om sin firma på Gran Canaria, Rocky Adventure, och i alla dessa år har jag tänkt att jag skulle testa en av hans fina vandringar…. Bättre sent än aldrig…. detta […]

Deliciously 222 SW Bar & Grill – a MUST visit on Gran Canaria!

One good thing, and probably the only good thing about a wedding anniversary in the month of November, is that you’ll always have a good reason to travel….. Last year, we celebrated our first anniversary with a “Dining by design” dinner by Anantara in Thailand – simply amazing. This year, while enjoying some relaxed days on […]

Gran Canaria – somehow timeless and still going strong

We just spent a week on the Spanish island of Gran Canaria (in the Atlantic outside Morocco). The “traditional” main tourist destination for Scandinavians since the 60’s.   It was meant to be a nice, quiet and calm week, with plenty of time to relax. I like the island mostly for two reasons; -Lots of […]

Kenya Only – Nyumbani kwangu

When I was a young, pretty girl ages ago….I worked abroad for 16 years – for the same company that I still work for now (been there for 22 good years) in the travel industry. During my years abroad, I was stationed on the Canary Islands outside Spain, Malaysia, Singapore, Greek islands of Mytilini, Kos, Crete, […]
