Weekend in Gotland

Gotland Sweden

After Stockholm Fashion Week I spend my last weekend in Stockholm leaving Stockholm. The island of Gotland is situated between Sweden and Latvia, (I guessed right while explaining and later confirming on Google Maps). With a length of 180km it is not small but not to big either to spend a week on a bike discovering the island. We went by boat “Destination Gotland” and staid at the Prison Hotel in Visby. It sounds more adventurous than it was but we had great weather and perfect views on the Baltic Sea. Definitely worth visiting.

Sales Stockholm #1 – Go Local

sales shopping stockholm

Sales season…what can I say about this? It is definitely a time to hunt down bargains but also frustrating once in a while. After traveling for some time now and living in different countries I definitely have my favourite shops but… arrrgh I am far away from them now. What would I give to just switch for a few days! Nevertheless I came to visit some of the local Scandinavian brands (I cannot really say which ones are Swedish, but they were all new to me). I am sure you find something for yourselves among them and I put a list with a few more at the end!
