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

This blog post is the result of a question I got after a presentation at IKEA. I’m in the end of a half-crazy motivational speaking race. For several weeks I have planted daily seeds of adventure, inspiration and new ideas in minds all over Sweden. Sometimes our sessions end with question and answer sessions. I happily listen to new and interesting questions. Yesterday a man said he’d really like to challenge himself,… Läs mer

Me and one of my favourite ex-boyfriends had a saying: less than 3 activities in one day and we call it a ‘rest-day’. This weekend was all but a rest day. During the saturday I was part of a new concept in a freshly restored ocean-hotel and conference which is now also a spa! Tanumstrand. It’s situated right on one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world; the Swedish west coast…. Läs mer

I have been living with the classical goal-setting mind. I love dreamy high goals. They motivate me and give me energy to go beyond my limits. I have always believed that if you don’t know where you are going – how will you get anywhere at all? Like the Alice in Wonderland moment: One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. ”Which road… Läs mer

Sayulita is a easy going town on the Mexican west coast just north of Puerto Vallarta. People drive around in golf cars with surfboards on the roofs. Or they walk barefoot and drink beer or green smoothies or both. Mexican cowboys mix with american tourists, surfers and bohemic yogis. Plastic are more or less banned and the food is mostly organic. It’s a small paradise. How can it not when there is… Läs mer

By climbing Antarctica I realised how big this project was. What a way to finish. Antarctica is on the bottom of the world, almost opposite from Sweden and just really really far away. And outherworldy beautiful and grand. It was like being on another planet in all white silence. It was also a great reminder from the mountains that we are there on their grace, never to conquer or win over the… Läs mer

Patagonia. There was magic in the air. I inhaled it and it will stay with me forever. And I will have to go back. The place made such a big impression I’m still overwhelmed. So I might have to go back just to check it again – and take more photos. And climb more mountains. I have been climbing since I was 14 years old, and suddenly I felt like a child… Läs mer

Come on a good adventure! In april 2016 you can join me on a beautiful trek/climb at high altitude in remote Rolwaling village in Nepal. You will experience the beautiful scenery of the majestic Himalayas including the mountains Gaurishankar, Tashi Laptsa and Dorje Lakpa. The trekking route wanders through alpine forests with blooming rhododendron flowers and beautiful native villages. We will trek and climb a small mountain, Yalung Ri 5500m, in this… Läs mer

Varför låta det som varit definera resten av livet? 2016 kommer bli ett fantastiskt år, om du vill. Jag tror att man till stor del kan välja hur man vill leva, hur ett år ska bli, och skapa något att se fram emot. Jag tror det är nyttigt att utmana sig själv, att söka nära-livet-upplevelser och att inte vänta! Behöver du sällskap av likasinnade, en liten knuff eller en s.k ‘galen’ idé… Läs mer

Sometimes, everything comes together in perfect timing. I don’t know why if it wasn’t meant to be. I think I had the best trip of my life. That’s not to say a little. It’s hard to explain. One thing that made it so special might have been the lack of expectations. I tried to read up on the expedition, but there was not a lot to be found. Just that it was… Läs mer

Text in english below the photos Titeln är en av förhållningsreglerna på nästa expedition. Jag ska till Papua och bestiga mt. Carstensz pyramid, 4884m. Det är det högsta berget på den oceaniska kontinenten. Det är min 6’e av de 7 summits. Jag var på väg redan förra året, men mitt knä var inte helt återhämtat från en titthålsoperation. Det är 110km till berget enkel väg, så det är viktigt att ha bra… Läs mer

I believe life is as simple as what you pay attention to becomes your reality. If you read newspapers and follow the news on the internet then it’s easy to get obsessed and absorbed by the latest news of never ending crisis. Same if you follow the latest fashion blogs and instagrams, or celebrities on instagram. That will be what your world revolves around. If you focus on what other people are… Läs mer

The last month or more I have been constantly on the road, giving one or two presentation and motivational talks every day. I love my job and it gives me a lot of joy, but it’s also very challenging. To be able to do my job and prepare for upcoming expeditions it’s extremely important that I take well care of myself (or – isn’t it important anyway?) It’s important because it’s not… Läs mer

I almost fell out of the taxi at the airport. Somehow the heel of the shoe wedged itself into the cobblestones. You probably wouldn’t even think those heels were high. But they were high enough to change my world for a day. In one day I did a couple of motivational talks including the dress code “business”. So I had dusted of a short dark blue dress from deep inside the closet…. Läs mer

Det är fortfarande overkligt. Det som så länge var PDF’er och filer på datorn är plötsligt något man kan hålla i handen. Det som var möten och diskussioner med min underbara förläggare Alexandra, redaktör Ingela och formgivare Annika på Bonnier fakta är nu ett slutfört arbete. Den välbekanta tomheten efter att ha genomfört en dröm har infunnit sig, och tack vare fina ord från min förläggare (”nu börjar resten av det roliga”)… Läs mer

I have told you before that life on expedition is very different from ”real” life. You live day by day, find shelter (pitch the tent), food and water to live. We tried to save batteries on electrical equpiment and didn’t really see any news reports until we got back. The whole refugee disaster hit me full on in Swedish media. I talked today with my speaking coach, Pontus Ströbaek about words. When… Läs mer

För mig är havet mer än natur. Det är lugn, tystnad och harmoni. Och det är en plats jag inte kan tänka mig att leva utan. Jag har samma kärlek till havet som till en person. Med havskärleken kommer en känsla av att jag vill ge något tillbaks till havet som gett mig så mycket. Men vad för slags present ger man till havet? En del man kan ge till havet är… Läs mer

text in english below the photos Ibland är det svårt att både gilla klippor och hav. Mina ögon följer klippan, förbi vattenkanten ner i djupet, och så upp igen på klippan, och så ner i djupet. Men ofta hamnar jag mitt emellan, landar på min paddleboard och är bara tacksam över att få vara där jag är och se naturen i sin helhet. Det är fantastiskt att vara turist i sitt hemland,… Läs mer
