I’ve never really felt the connection to Sweden. I love my home country and there’s not a different place I would’ve rather grown up in. We get free education, healthcare and so many benefits in life. My childhood was amazing and I never felt unsafe. However, there’s just something in me that knows I won’t live in Sweden for a long time. It feels a bit depressing maybe, but also normal. Many Swedes decide to move abroad because they can’t handle the darkness and the cold. I’ve always been more of a summer person as well and the cold makes me so tired.

I wonder how it’ll be in the future, when the world becomes more globalized and it’ll be easier to move around. Will we all be living in different countries at one point of our lives? Or will we appreciate what we have even more, when we’ve seen the world. Usually you appreciate your home more. What I really appreciate is salt licorice. Thank God Sweden has it - what would my life be without it.

But winter in my hometown is the prettiest and no one can say anything else.

I got my hair cut today... AGAIN. My lovely hair dresser told me it was okey and she cut it again for a whole hour... I felt so bad. Sorry hair dresser Susanne at Trude’s for being such a pain in the ass. But I do love my hair and never wanna cut it anywhere else.

If only I could turn back to that day in Saigon. How much more I’d appreciate it then and how much more there would be to say. I think everyone wishes we had a time machine sometimes.

​PS: This photo is from Hoi An. I just wanted to insert a dramatic photo, lol.

“What makes you really happy?” is the million dollar question. Because what makes me really happy can’t really last forever. Things like my family & friends being healthy and happy is the most important thing of course, but what makes my life feel fulfilled?

In my dreams I’d like to continue traveling for a few more years. I still have things I want to do - like hiking in Tajikistan, Kirgisztan & Kazakhstan. I want to visit Nepal. It would be amazing to rent a camper van and drive through Europe in the summer, stay in small villages and have picnics with friends. I want to walk the Camino de Santiago, explore Portugal and Spain... it would be amazing if I’d finally learn how to speak Spanish.

I want to volunteer in Mexico, finally visit Chile and then do a proper trip to Argentina. It would be amazing if I could travel throughout Central America and see what everyone raves about.

After that I really want to see Africa. Namibia, Botswana and South Africa. Experience a completely different world. After that I want to work in Canada for a while and see how life could be like there. After a while I’d miss Europe so much so I’d travel to Iceland and Greenland and escape into the wild once more....

So much to do, so little time (and money!!). My dream is to work within the tourism sector so that I’ll at least get to daydream all day long. I really love traveling. It’s not just a passion, it’s what defines me. It’s a drug that you want more of.

Right now my heart is considering Australia, but I know that maybe I’d do it for the wrong reasons... hmm. Time will tell. What I really want is to stay in Europe - preferably Berlin. Close to home and close to heart!

Bare feet’s touching the soft sand, feeling the suns warmth on your back and jumping into the salty water... 💞

I love it! I thought I’d hate it and went to the hair dresser with a pessimistic attitude, but my hair dresser turned out to be amazing and she was so sweet... the only problem is that I wanted it a bit shorter and now I’m too scared to call back and ask if she can cut it a bit shorter (even though she told me that I could). Meehh... what to do?

I never thought I’d feel so good in short hair, but I really love it. Amazing! I didn’t come out looking like a monk.

How I love this mans unique voice. Sometimes he’s a bit too depressive and dark for me (hehe) but I love this song from his new cd. He’s such a talent! ⚡️

I choose to keep some of the memories close to heart. I want to remember you as the person I knew before it all ended, when things were good... maybe even great. You can’t erase what has happened. But you can also not ignore everything that’s changed.

I decided to think of all the good times instead of the bad ones. Fond memories from another life.

Nobody knows how to say goodbye,
It seems so easy til’ you try.

You wait and wait and wait... and all of a sudden that moment is there! You’ve fantasized about it, romanticized it, dreamt of it - and then it finally happens - and you realized that too little has changed (or maybe too much?). Life is ironic, isn’t it? I know I’m not really making any sense, there’s so many things I’d like to write here on my blog, but I guess it would be oversharing. Anyway, it was beautiful to be back in Israel again. It’s a weird feeling when you wish you had more time, but you’re also relieved that you’re not there anymore. Maybe I had gotten too used to the beach life in Sri Lanka, or maybe I’d just missed being home and needed a place where I could fully relax.. not sure. But Tel Aviv is always Tel Aviv and I can’t complain about it. My second home, along with Romania and North Carolina. I wonder where my next second home will be?

PS. I adore my friends in Israel. I always wish I had more time with you.

Me and my beloved “Asian” sister - I love you. You’re such a beautiful girl, full of passion and drive. You’re a unique soul for sure. I finally got to spend a few days with her in Tel Aviv, and I can’t wait to spend some more quality time with her somewhere in the world.
