How I stay positive when everything goes wrong

It was a long time ago that I realized that making plans just doesn’t work for me. In general that’s something I advice people from doing since plans rarely goes as planned, which in the end will leave you frustrated and stressed in the middle of a trip or in your daily life. To a…

Make a trip

Many of us grew up with work work work and looking forward to the weekend where we can stay home doing nothing and the two weeks of vacation we get when we can go to a sunny place and lay by the pool for hours a day finally being able to relax without feeling guilty…

The drive from Sweden to Spain

It was on the bus to school a cloudy day that we made the decision to leave. We had just started our last year in high school and had the plan to move to Barcelona after we graduated. But as we all know plans never goes as we want to. After arriving to school to…

When magic happened

That’s the only way I can describe it in words. Pure magic. Of course it’s not. There’s science behind all of it. The physics and anatomy of the waves and the sea. The reason why the sky turns red and orange during a sunset. The history of the mountains. But it felt like magic. It…

5 years ago..

You know the saying “time flies when you’re having fun”. I guess that’s what happened the last 5 years.. 5 years ago I left my country. Me being 18 years old not having any clue about what I was doing, who I was or where I was heading to. It’s a strange thing to realize…

I remember the first time

I remember the first time. I think we all do. To enter the wild currents of the open sea that we have done so many times before except from that this time, it’s different. Why though? Why would it make such a difference to enter the water just because you’re carrying a board with you?…
