Palma, Spain

Recently took a mini trip to Palma; it’s very beautiful and the food is delicious! We had the chance to eat at some of the best restaurants and I thought the prices were fairly reasonable. 

We stayed at a beautiful Airbnb and hired a personal chef. 

Spain is like a warmer Sweden. There are a lot of Swedes here…



Venice, Italy

We spent our Easter weekend in Venice. It’s an absolutely beautiful city with lots of history. I also got engaged here so I love it even more! 

Our Engagement story:

We went to San Giorgio Maggiore and wanted to go to the top of the tower to see the city. It costs 6 Euros per person and they don’t take cards – we didn’t have any cash on us either. So we went to a nearby cafe and asked a random stranger to buy his lunch with our card for some cash. He just handed us the money without asking for anything in return. We went to the top and it was breathtaking and just so peaceful. My boyfriend didn’t plan on proposing to me up there but I guess he felt the timing was right so he proposed! 

I bumped into that kind stranger again when we were on our way down. I was so excited I shoved my hand to his face and was yelling at him to check out my ring. He was confused and slightly frightened, and rightfully so. I told him we got engaged, and then I hugged him and thanked him. 

Lesson learned:
Always have some cash when traveling. 

Morocco 

Recently went to Morocco (Fes, Marrakech, Chefchaouen, Sahara Desert, Casablanca, Tangier). It was absolutely beautiful! 


Paris, France

I went to Paris a few weeks back and it was so breathtaking – so much history and beauty in every corner. I loved how rich it was in the arts; there were museums and art exhibitions in every corner. Food was just delicious and the people were all very kind and helpful! I spent $100 on my round trip ticket (Ryan Air) and $25/night on Airbnb (5 nights) – I definitely would go back in a heart beat.

Skydive

So my visa is on the third and final phase. It’s supposed to take 6-8 weeks and it’s also the most important step. During this time, my boyfriend and I have been getting rid of things we no longer need or want. We have also been spending some time trying to figure out which appliances might not work in Sweden – not a fun process. But to balance out the boring and tiring process of cleaning out our apartment, we’ve been having as much fun as possible.

So we skydived this weekend! It was just crazy! The people attached to you do not countdown when they drop out of the plane – they just go. They do that so people don’t change their mind last millisecond. But the view was absolutely beautiful and it’s so crisp up there. The craziest part about the whole thing was that on that same day, a person and their instructor died because the parachute wouldn’t release. Glad I made it…
