Sometimes inspiration hits me at the most inconvenient times. For example when I just got home, after a 10 hour car ride, extremely tired and glad to finally go to bed. That´s when my brain decides to get busy.

I´m not an expert regarding Sweden, but I have been there a couple of times and I thought, why not tell a little bit about it and maybe give some inspiration or tips. So here we go. Read more
