Philippines, 2018

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

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

Havana oh na na!

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!

When in doubt, vacation!

Why not spend the first week of your vacation in Greece? That’s what I did!

Long days on the beach, boat rides, evening dining and a big ass fishbowl! That’s how I’m going to sum up the vacation with the girls.

And Hey! Can anyone please FedEx me the oven-baked feta cheese with honey please? I miss it so much!

 

I don’t think I have anything else to add, Imma let the pictures do the talking!
