I’ve made some massive work om my houseboat this year. Most of it has been the kind of work that is necessary, but not visible. I have been inside each compartment of the pontoons refurbishing and rust-proofing. I have polished the hull and am a test-person for a new toxic-free anti-fouling colour. So far so good! When a dream project turns into mostly hard and dirty work and no enjoyment, it’s better… Läs mer

It’s not just an adventure or a dream-come-true, it’s a different life. The tapping of fluffy, soft paws is always there, or at least for the next 15 years or so. I have never made such a long time commitment before. I have always loved dogs even though I’m allergic to most animals with fur. I met a portugese waterdog and then found it’s spanish cousin and fell in love. They are… Läs mer

How do you justify a lifestyle that is bad for the planet? Maybe that question goes for most lifestyles nowadays. Simply being alive means we’ll have a more or less bad effect on the climate as soon as we eat, buy stuff and move around. We’d have to live very differently to not make our planet worse. For someone who loves both travelling and nature this is a dilemma. There’s a new… Läs mer

In the midst of snow and rain in Lofoten I finally made time to go through photos from a much warmer place. 1500 photos have turned into a few hundred. Below are some favourites + a short movie. I can warmly recommend you to go to Dhigurah because it’s a local island and you’ll support local families and get a ‘real’ experience rather than going to a ‘resort-island’. This trip was organized… Läs mer

At first I had named it ‘discipline week’ and thought of it with some harshness and squinty eyes, as if going into a bootcamp. It was the week extra I had to stay in Indonesia as my boyfriend had to go back earlier to work and take care of the dog. As I really didn’t have any business at home in the cold and my family was away, I might as well… Läs mer

Ever since I heard of their existence, I wanted to meet them. Ever since then I built up expectations. It was a long time ago, and many things changed in the lives of the sea gypsies, and in the world. If we´d arrived 7 years earlier there wouldn´t have been any mobile phones in the village. Maybe not even electricity for a few hours every day. I don´t remember how long they… Läs mer

Fridykning är en fantastisk upplevelse. Man lär sig mycket om sig själv, andning och havet. Det har varit många förfrågningar kring kurser i fridykning så vi har satt kurs-datum redan nu! Jag kommer hålla 3 x 2 kurser i sommar längs vår vackra västkust. På kursen kommer du lära dig enkla tekniker för att andas bättre, vara lugnare i vatten, snorkla tryggare, fridyka djupare och stanna längre under ytan. Fridykning är ett sätt… Läs mer

Those words are ture both for the actual travel, and for life itself. Luggage can be many different things. It can be memories, difficult experiences, stories we keep telling ourselves as well as owning a lot of things. If you have a heavy load of experiences you haven’t processed but just pushed away you might have a kind of spiritual heaviness. If you have done someting bad and not forgiven yourself for… Läs mer

På datorn fanns ett dokument som hette ‘nybok’. På något märkligt sätt har den nyligen transformerats till två böcker. Innehållet har varierat, men en, eller två, böcker ska det bli. Och de ska bli bra. Enligt teorin att man blir som bäst på det man tycker om, så ska boken/böckerna handla om något jag tycker om, nämligen frihet, enkelhet, naturen och inre äventyr. Om att lyssna inåt istället för utåt. Om att… Läs mer

Christmas is a wonderful ‘pause’ in my life. It’s a few days or weeks with less e-mails, less things that I think I ‘have to do’ and more time with family and friends. It’s a wonderful time because there is time with no plans! Having time like that has been one of my keys to having less bad stress in life. I worked a lot this last year. I love all my 7 jobs… Läs mer

As I’m enjoying the december of 2017, I’m already looking forward to next year! When you want to make something happen, the trick is to put it in the calendar :-D We have already made some fun plans (will tell you more later), and some of those are open expeditions/courses you can join. For the first part of 2018 there we have these fun trips open for bookings: Learn to freedive with… Läs mer

‘Come home immediately’, one e-mail said. Maybe jokingly, but friendly. I have seen the volcano far away. I have seen the dramatic newspaper headlines, and they don’t match. Yes, people are stranded because the airport is closed. But is it chaos? No. The disaster headlines in the online news are made to gather ‘clicks’. It makes it very hard for us to know what to believe, and what to spend our precious… Läs mer

It seems so simple. Take a breath of air and dive as deep as you want into the ocean. But you have to make it back up to the surface, and you have to stay calm. You will be alone. You will meet your doubts, strengths and all of your mind in one single dive. So freediving isn’t that simple. Neither is teaching freediving. You’ll have as many different courses as there… Läs mer

They will grab hold of every part of you, into the smallest cell and memory. They change your life and they don’t let go as you try to leave them behind. There is something very special about the Himalayan mountains. It’s an experience that lasts a lifetime. Before the trip I thought of it as ‘just a job’. Sure I love my guide job, Nepal and the mountains and my friends there,… Läs mer

It’s been the usual’ before a expedition: Preparation. Times my great 10 participants. Times 10 more experiences! We’ve had a busy day in Kathmandu and now we’re leaving to do one of the world’s most spectacular flights; Kathmandu to Lukla at 2800m to start one of the most beautiful hikes in the world. We are all looking forward to change the smog and stuffy air towards the thin fresh air higher up…. Läs mer

Vi ska göra ett världsrekordförsök för att rädda Göteborgs hav! All vinst går till att börja rädda vallgraven. Målet är att vattnet ska vara så rent att vi kan simma i vallgraven. Men vi behöver hjälp. Vi hoppas sätta värdsrekord i antal deltagare i ett yoga & andningspass i Serneke arena i Göteborg. Jag och Maria Cerboni kommer att guida dig igenom enkel och skön yoga och andningsövningar. Alla kan deltaga! Ta med… Läs mer

My whole world is moving. The boat is shivering as waves crash against the steel of the hull. Sometimes my fingers are pulled away from the laptop by a big wave or gust of wind movement. I look out through the window to see the waves. As I’m sitting in the livingroom couch I feel the whole boat coming to life underneath me. My hearing has become better. I hear every new… Läs mer

Hönö är en av de vackraste platserna i Sverige att fridyka på. Mjuka rosa klippor bryter av det vilda havet och dess värld under ytan. Årets första fridykningskurs visade Hönö från sin bästa sida. Väderprognosen ändrade sig i sista stund och lovade blå himmel och solsken. Till denna kursen samarbetade vi med det nybyggda vandrarhemmet Havskatten som ligger bara ett par meter från havet. Havskatt är annars en fisk med väldigt speciellt… Läs mer

There is something about living in small spaces. Maybe that’s where adventures happen; tents, tree houses, house boats and camper vans. The less space to live in, the less to take care of, and the more time spent outdoors on adventures. Me and my boyfriend found a opportunity to get away, and we did. Spending as little time as possible travelling to a surfable and somewhat warm ocean we chose Portugal. They… Läs mer

Det kändes faktiskt så, som om jag hade nya ögon. De var känsligare än innan. Vind och luft upplevdes på ett nytt sätt när det inte satt en kontaktlins i vägen. Jag tror att min pojkvän blivit trött på all information om hur annorlunda världen ser ut. Inte för att något förändrats i min inställning eller världen utanför, utan allt som förändrats var min hornhinna! :) Det är idag exakt 3 veckor… Läs mer
