When you think of a Swedish city, the first one that springs to mind is most likely Stockholm yet when it comes to Christmas I think Gothenburg should be the one you think of! There’s not one, not two, but three main Christmas markets in Gothenburg and everywhere just gets into the Christmas spirit! 🎄🎄 Also Gothenburg as a whole is an amazing city with such a cool, hip vibe and it’s perfect for me as it’s big on its coffee culture! Out of all the Christmas markets I’ve seen this year, Gothenburg’s were the best by far!
I am wondering if your Christmas time is also extremely busy and always on the run? Shopping, preparations, visiting family, catching up with friends, finishing work, studies... Sorry for not posting for a while but the last 2 weeks were craaazy busy :) but I am back and since theres only 1 week till Christmas... lets get into the Xmas vibes!! Have you visited any Christmas markets this year? Planning to visit? ✨💞⭐️🎄

A Krampus cuddle!
According to Bavarian folklore, the Krampus is a horned half-goat, half-demon creature figure who, during the Christmas season, punishes naughty children. The opposite, obviously, of Saint Nicholas, who rewards good kids with presents.
While in Munich, I decided to catch the Krampus Run, which is basically the anti-thesis of a Santa Claus parade. Various Krampus (Krampuses? Krumpi?) roam down the street stealing hats, whipping people with branches, knocking people’s heads together and accosting the crowd. All of this happened to me, and let me tell you those branches stung like a mofo. For some reason a twentysomething woman beside me was a frequent target; after about 45 minutes she seemed genuinely afraid and started hiding behind her friend. All the kids watching thought the whole thing was a hoot, of course.
It was weird AF but way more fun than watching corporate floats pass by. 👹
Cheers to the weekend!! This is our last year in Europe during the holiday season so we are loading up on our Christmas market time extra this year! Our goal is to make it to all 7 of Cologne’s markets!
MOOD! Out of office on and now absolutely ready to lap some sunshine!
PEAK: Today was pretty amazing and I can’t think of a better way to have spent my last day in London (at least til I’m back in January) before I jet off to South East Asia. Thank you for blowing my mind. 😘
PIT: I feel so unready to fly! I’ve (gasp) not really finished packing and Christmas pressies may have not arrived so I need to sort that out (Duty Free shopping, anyone?). 🎁🎄
Anyway, slightly #feelingfestive now and can’t wait to spend time with the fambam and see friendly faces!
Cheers to the weekend!
Who else is ready for some glühwein?!?
I’m enjoying my last weekend of Christmas markets before heading back to the states to celebrate Christmas with my fam 🎄
My happy place: on the canals of Amsterdam pretending I'm on House Hunters looking for my next canal house (or houseboat!) while also thinking about what kind of pancake I'm going to be ordering for lunch.

This is the first weekend to myself since I returned from my trip in October. Can you believe it?? It's long overdue. So what am I doing? Reflecting on 2018, figuring out travel content for Q1 (like a guide to Boston's Faneuil Hall) and thinking about the trips I want to take as well. Suggestions? Already in the works...NYC, Mexico City, and a road trip to Texas. #behindthescenes
#mood ! I’ve been a little MIA on insta for the past few days because I’ve been spending a little time looking after myself. I’ve let myself just do what my body feels it needs to - which has been a lotttt of resting ☁️Yesterday, I felt a little better and managed to go to the gym (finally!) and remembered how hard it can be sometimes when you haven’t been in a while. 😅
I travel because distance and difference are the secret tonic to creativity. And then I come home and home is still the same but something inside my mind changed, and that changes everything✨
