I’m half. Half swedish and half filipina. 50% fika eating IKEA-meatball lover and 50% rice cooking, smooth hair growing island peep. Swedish mentality with a mix of asian culture and traditions, in other words I’m the person who goes “I understand what you mean, but I disagree, but we’re still friends right?” Love the fact that I’m currently in bed laughing at myself hehe
What I want to get at, is that I’m me! And I would like to share a little part of it with you.
The pictures below is from my latest trip to the Philippines. My second home. Enjoy!
And hey, there’s a movie at the end, feel free to check it out if you want ! <3
So I went to Tokyo with Jens a couple of weeks ago! For so many years I told my self, I want to go to Tokyo, and guys! I DID IT! And it was the coolest trip I’ve made so far. 1 day in and I already knew that this wouldn’t be my last visit.
I don’t know where to start, the food, the culture, the hype, the people, the lights! I’m gonna let the pictures speak for themself. I also made a movie about the trip, check it out if you haven’t seen it <3
So a couple of months ago I went on a trip where everything that could go wrong weeeeell… did go wrong!
But I survived the cancelled flights, the rebooking of places to stay and the new American laws and you know what! I had the time of my life! From Sweden to Los Angeles to Cancun in Mexico to Havanna and Trinidad in Cuba, Miami and back home!
So many weird and funny things happened on this trip I don’t even know where to start. People have asked me “what was the best/Funniest thing that happened during the trip?” My answer, – Geez, can I say everything?
I could have been jumping into a taxi and getting seated randomly next to two other Swedes. Ended up going out and buying a pizza from a cart at 2 in the morning, together with a Korean and a french dude.
Dancing salsa with a 75 year old man.
I’t could also have been riding around in a carriage in Havanna getting tricked into paying extra for something that was included, and then still ending up paying the amount that was promised.
Getting drunk of one mojito? Yes ONE mojito!
Getting to know an old Lady and her husband Mr Thompson, they started calling me Ale. The cute lady screamed ALLEEE from her window, and even though I didn’t understand a word that she said, we spent an amazing 20 min on her balcony talking about everything.
This post is Part 1 of 2 possible 3 post about my trip! And as you can see I decided to start with Cuba! So turn on the salsa music and check out my pictures! I also included a little vacation movie, if you wanna get the feels!
This past year has been all about getting me and my creativity back on track. Even though I’m not all the way there, a weekend in Amsterdam really brought back some of it. I always forget how much I love just looking at people and capturing a random moment in time. I should really go for strolls more often, and Hey! Having a sister to do the long talks during the long walks, sure helps alot. And photocred to her for actually capturing me in a picture haha <3
This post is not a lot, but its something! And a little bit of something always a good thing right? :)
It’s always a privilege to get invited to a wedding as a photographer, but to also get an invitation as a friend even more so. Love, Laughter, tears of joy and wonderful memories was shared this very special day. I’d like to say thank you for letting me be a part of your wedding and letting me capture some of the memories of the special day!
Thank you once again, and wishing you guys the best of luck and may even more happy memories come your way <3
This post is rather late as you can see hehe, keeping it short here haha,
My computer is old and he is dying, I think I pushed him a little to much this time. I’m gonna try to revive him, and try to finish this post via my phone. This post is just going to be totally random one. Grabbed some random pictures that was on my camera from a trip to MAX with some friends last week.
I pulled over to the side on the old road to take some pictures by the lake, and told my brother to take pictures of the road and telling him how to hold the camera while I was the one keeping my eyes on the road and doing the driving. He didn’t do that bad of a job, now did he! ;D
I hope I won’t miss next weeks post, but i can’t promise anything. I might have a new computer on its way. One never knows.
