Belle and Pepper – Fur Kids

Hello from Sweden! My blog has mostly been about traveling. I figured it might be fun to add a new topic since I don’t travel all the time to keep his blog consistently updated. So the new topic is my fur kids, Belle and Pepper. Who doesn’t like cute kittens?

I always thought I was a dog person but I’ve come to accept that I’ve always been a cat person deep inside. So to start off the week, here’s some pics of my fur babies. Enjoy!

Pepper is the grey one and Belle is the white one.

Bergen, Norway

Bergen is a beautiful, little city with amazing nature to keep you in constant awe. Besides the breathtaking landscape, Bergen also offers delicious, fresh food. I really loved their sea food and their fjord cruise! 

Sigtuna, Sweden

Sigtuna was Sweden’s second capital – Birka was the first capital. It’s a very quaint, little town with rich history; it still has some standing ruins. 

It’s a great day trip destination with restaurants, historical sites, and shops. The town is surrounded by fun bike paths and a beautiful lake for a nice swim or sunbathing. 
A must see! 

Amsterdam 

Amsterdam is a fun and crazy city. You will get a Disney picturesque landscape with a slight edge – alcohol, weed, prostitutes. 

I went to Amsterdam by myself and it was quite the experience. I personally feel like it’s a city you go with someone. There is so much energy and experiencing that by yourself can be overwhelming. 

But a must go, if you haven’t! 

Palma, Spain

Recently took a mini trip to Palma; it’s very beautiful and the food is delicious! We had the chance to eat at some of the best restaurants and I thought the prices were fairly reasonable. 

We stayed at a beautiful Airbnb and hired a personal chef. 

Spain is like a warmer Sweden. There are a lot of Swedes here…



Venice, Italy

We spent our Easter weekend in Venice. It’s an absolutely beautiful city with lots of history. I also got engaged here so I love it even more! 

Our Engagement story:

We went to San Giorgio Maggiore and wanted to go to the top of the tower to see the city. It costs 6 Euros per person and they don’t take cards – we didn’t have any cash on us either. So we went to a nearby cafe and asked a random stranger to buy his lunch with our card for some cash. He just handed us the money without asking for anything in return. We went to the top and it was breathtaking and just so peaceful. My boyfriend didn’t plan on proposing to me up there but I guess he felt the timing was right so he proposed! 

I bumped into that kind stranger again when we were on our way down. I was so excited I shoved my hand to his face and was yelling at him to check out my ring. He was confused and slightly frightened, and rightfully so. I told him we got engaged, and then I hugged him and thanked him. 

Lesson learned:
Always have some cash when traveling. 

Pray for Stockholm

It was another beautiful day in Sweden – nothing out of the ordinary. Later in the day we got news of the attacks. The entire thing didn’t really sink in until hours later. It’s hard to explain the emotions I’m feeling but it’s a mixture of disbelief and anger. 

Although I’ve only been here 6 months, I consider it my home. I’ve never felt safer here, and although I was a few meters away from the entire incident, that feeling of safety hasn’t changed. Sweden is a kind and strong country, we will make it through!
