Three Days in Bergen, Norway

2017 was a quiet year for us in terms of travel. Other than a few small local getaways over the summer, we didn’t go anywhere. So at the end of October, we kick-started our travelling again with a quick trip to Bergen, Norway.

I knew before we got there that Bergen is one of the rainiest places in all of Europe. And of course, everything I wanted to do involved being outside!

So in order to make an informed decision I set out to try each one on the list. I now have a new favourite, a review of the ones I tried, and a few extra kilos 🙂 Continue reading “Stockholm’s Best Kanelbullar”

Höstlov – Reminiscing about Utö

It’s Höstlov here in Sweden this week, which is the Autumn break for schools. Whilst most people I know are heading out of Stockholm to warmer destinations, I’ve really been enjoying Autumn here in town and it’s had me reminiscing about what we were doing this time last year….
