My holidays in Scandinavia

Here's what I've been up to in the past 3 weeks. I spent 12 days in Umeå, then travelled to Stockholm and stayed for two more days in Copenhagen. Want to see some pictures? 

We rented snow shoes and skis in Umeå. It was my first time on skis and it was so much fun! We also had tons of snow!


My second time in Stockholm. We booked an archipelago tour and saw many cute little islands (30.000 in total). I went to Skansen and saw real reindeers. They're so cute!! 


Beautiful and sunny Copenhagen is a city you should all visit. My favourite place was Nyhavn with its colorful small houses and boats. I saw the Little Mermaid, the statue of Hans Christian Andersen, Christiania and ate a lot of Hot Dogs.


The books that I read:

Except Finding Sky (which just wasn't for me) I read a wonderful bunch of books. My favourite is definitely WANDERLOVE by Kirsten Hubbard. Read it!!!


  1. Looks like you had a nice trip :)

  2. the pictures look amazing :)

    and im looking forward to the review of tempest :D
    the book sounds interesting, but im not that much into romantasy, soo...

  3. Oh, I love Scandinavia! This post is really making me wish I could pay a visit. Your pics are filling me with intense nostalgia! Thanks for sharing.

    It seems like you had a great time going to all these places.
    You liked Wanderlove? That's great since I have to read it next month I think...

    You were in Umeå! *points at self* I totally live there! LOL. This is so random! Not often I come across someone from the blog community visiting here of all places, haha. The snow has definitely starting taking over. And I'm glad you liked your first time on skis. ;) Most here hate it, lol. And ohh, I love Copenhagen! Looks like you had a fun trip! :D

  6. WOW these pictures are amazing!! Glad you had such a great time! It has barely snowed here in Brooklyn NY!! But I'm not complaining lol!

  7. Snow snow snow... I guess you had a lot of fun.
    We had so much snow this year that I miss summer with all my heart, but some other times I just love winter. This year I learned how to ski and it made me feel better about enduing the cold weather :)

  8. Yay! I'm from Sweden! :D Looks like you had some awesome reading done.

  9. I've always wanted to go to Scandinavian. Your pictures are beautiful! Love the snow angel :-)
