A recap from my vacation! Hope u like ♡
There is nothing like a sunny vacation. The warmth, happiness and joy among family and friends.
Since the weather was not so much fun here in sweden, I couldn’t help it but to let myself fly away on a trip to where is the sun and no where is better than home.
Flying to Egypt gave me a kind of boost that you can’t compare with anything else. Wonderful! Pure magic and pure bliss.
In Egypt I met my family and beloved ones, ate large amounts of watermelon, listened to music, had long breakfasts, stayed under the sun, and slept like an old man at times.
During my vacation I stayed in the Mena House hotel which was exceptional. My greeting upon arrival was so friendly.
My room had the swimming pool view and it was large, clean and very comfortable. I had my dinner at the one of their restaurants with the pyramids view in front of me, the food was plentiful, and delicious with a wide choice and variety.
The pool was spotlessly clean and the area around well kept and relaxing.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and I would stay here again in a heart beat. In fact I want to go back to Egypt just to stay in this hotel.
Before the end of my vacation I also paid a visit to Sofitel El Gezira the ideally located hotel in central Cairo on the southern tip of Gezirah Island, on the Nile River.
That elegant French contemporary hotel has another amazing view of Cairo. The view of the Nile just breathtaking.
I can’t express my happiness for being at home. It really felt so good with some vacation. Love! XOXO
Finally I’m going home. I’m going to Cairo to see my family and besties after a very long time.
I’m a bit panicked and stressed because of punch of bad news which I will have to fix in a very short time, but I will try to relax for few days under the sun. I keep my fingers crossed.
Hope your Monday is much better than mine 😉 XOXO
The highlight of the weekend aside from being sick and in hospital, Saturdays have become my favorite days to explore new places, cities in Sweden.
Few weeks ago I went to visit Vaxholm. Me and my boyfriend took the Waxholmsboalget boats to the in the Stockholm archipelago.
We found out later on that you can actually go to the town by bus using your SL card. Still taking the ferry was magical especially on the way back to Stockholm. The view was so pretty and it was a sunny day!
The best thing to do in Vaxholm is to simply stroll around. Don’t forget to stroll along the harbour.
Vaxholm is the name of both a town and the island it is on and is located in the central portion of the archipelago.
Thanks to google search I found the best place for a Swedish “fika”, Vaxholms Hembygdsgårds Café which is beautifully situated on a small peninsula. There you will find all sorts of traditional Swedish dishes like cold-roasted salmon with dill stewed potatoes, smoked shrimps and the classic “shrimp sandwich” (in Swedish: räkmacka). Not to even mention the amazing desert buffet with cookies and pastries! OMG yum yum for the nuf nuf tummy.
The first thing you may notice when arriving at Vaxholm, apart from a boat petrol station, is its fortress. It was constructed under King Gustav Vasa in the 16th century, though most of it was rebuilt in the 19th century. It protected Stockholm city successfully from the Danes in the 17th century and the Russians in the 18th. The view from above is really amazing especially on a sunny day.
We had early dinner before we leave the island at Magasinet i Waxholm
This restaurant has everything you would want, great organic food, great wine, great view, friendly staff and a shop underneath to browse.
Have a nice weekend y’all, XOXO
