Summer in the Archipelago


Vaxholm The “Capital of the Archipelago”, as its nicknamed, is one of my favorite places.

One of the best things about the island of Vaxholm is that it is easily walkable. It takes about 30 minutes to cross the island.

I found a true gem called Roddarhuset, a cozy small cafe where you can enjoy art and have amazing food.

On Friday I went to see “Dracula” at the Royal Opera in Stockholm.

The opera is based on Bram Stoker’s classic novel of 1897, and most people know at least the essentials of the story.

It has been filmed a number of times, however, this was the first time the tale has reached the operatic stage, and it is a truly stunning and spectacular, visually and musically.

The Dracula story has been always one of favorite intense love story since I was a kid. The story has indeed changed everything we know about the world’s most famous vampire.

I was so happy and excited as a kid when my boyfriend booked us the tickets and it was a great experience to go together to the royal opera for the first time, but not the last.

Hope you all had a great weekend! XO

It doesn’t take a lot to confirm that weather affects your mood, and in Sweden we witness more dark days than the bright ones.

Things has been a little gloomy when you wake up in the morning and see no light.

So it is time to take your vitamin D regularly and hope for the best.

But what else can you do in these days to have a bit of fun?!

Oh baby, I got some tips for you:

1- Take a hike and see all the colored leaves. I actually moved to new place so looking forward to explorer the area around us.

2- Fika and more Fika. Yes Swedes love to have a lot of coffee breaks (fika) but in these days cafes feels more warm and cozy than the rest of the year.

Lunch with Kajsa at LOCALS

3- Mysa time. It means cozy up. You can do that alone or with friends. Light some candles, put some flowers and enjoy a drink or two.

4- Time to go to the museum. Last year I spent a lot of rainy days at different museums. Still there is the ABBA museum which I wish to see this year.

5- Get fit in the gym. More Swedes turn to escape the dark mornings and days by heading to the gym. It is natural to invest some quality time in oneself. Running outside makes no sense so the gym is an ideal place anytime.

Today I’m heading to the gym after work, I will have an early dinner then cozying up in front of TV or maybe I will curl up with a book.

Have a great day y’all! Puss Puss
