a everyday life x a new journey in life.

- Waking up early, work, lifting weights, walking in th forest with my workout/yogi friend, reading books, power napping, drinking coffee, practicing yoga, breathing, thinking, focusing, studying for the driver licence & ayurveda.
That's how my life been looking like this week. But I'm giving myself time to do things I've been longing for and that is good for (part time) my soul and future. Everyday I'm going one step closer to that.
This is a new journey in my life right now.

S U P surprise for my brother.

- Even if it was a bit windy me and my brother manage to go out on the ocean and be a part of the nature connected with the water & the wind.
A great surprise for my brother on his 12th birthday when he first heard about SUP (Stand Up Paddle) and the same day he's about to try it too.
I'm so proud of him for he's will, power and energy. Good and hard jobb with wind and balance. But oh what a pretty view of this connection I got.


- Good morning world. How you feeling today? Just woken up maybe?
Well, I've been up since 04:50am and started work at 06am. Woho, party time! or not.
Same story yesterday. I was so tired I fell asleep for 45min och the wooden floor on the balcony after work.
But still I manage to drag myself up and away to the gym for a boxing session.
I actually got more energy from it cause it's such a amazing feeling and it's so go teamwork there.
But today I'll focus on legs and yoga.

lil bro's 12th b i r t h d a y morning.

- Here's a few photos from my brother's 12th birthday. I missed his 10th & 11th birthday while I was traveling and promised him that I'll be there for his next one and that we'll to something fun together.
So I woke him up with he's favourite breakfast on the bed while singing Happy Birthday on swedish, polish and english. I was just about to take it in spanish but it would just be too much then, haha...
He got some presents from me and mum and a card with clues to a treasure hunt I made for him.
I'll show you tomorrow what the treasure was in the end...!
We had so much fun. :)

work hard, train hard, push, reach & just do it.

- It's time to work. I've been opening up the gym today in the city. I'll try to catch up with someone today, but all my focus lately is going to training, working & getting my driver license. Then if I have time, I'll do other things.
But I want to give myself more time for yoga and meditation. Get ready for teaching in less than two months and to grow more inside my gypsy-yogi heart and in to the soul.
I miss my day-to-day life. Adventuring and exploring life. But I'll just do it in a different way. And I'm learning every day. Itäs just another sort of journey...
And it's the kind of journey I need right now.
Over & out!

The Hardest Part Of Traveling No One Talks About.

-You see the world, try new things, meet new people, fall in love, visit amazing places, learn about other cultures – then it’s all over. People always talk about leaving, but what about coming home?

We talk about the hard parts while we’re away – finding jobs, making real friends, staying safe, learning social norms, misreading people you think you can trust – but these are all parts you get through. All of these lows are erased by the complete highs you experience. The goodbyes are difficult but you know they are coming, especially when you take the final step of purchasing your plane ticket home. All of these sad goodbyes are bolstered by the reunion with your family and friends you have pictured in your head since leaving in the first place.

Then you return home, have your reunions, spend your first two weeks meeting with family and friends, catch up, tell stories, reminisce, etc. You’re Hollywood for the first few weeks back and it’s all new and exciting. And then it all just…goes away. Everyone gets used to you being home, you’re not the new shiny object anymore and the questions start coming: So do you have a job yet? What’s your plan? Are you dating anyone? How does your 401k look for retirement? (Ok, a little dramatic on my part.)

But the sad part is once you’ve done your obligatory visits for being away for a year; you’re sitting in your childhood bedroom and realize nothing has changed. You’re glad everyone is happy and healthy and yes, people have gotten new jobs, boyfriends, engagements, etc., but part of you is screaming don’t you understand how much I have changed? And I don’t mean hair, weight, dress or anything else that has to do with appearance. I mean what’s going on inside of your head. The way your dreams have changed, they way you perceive people differently, the habits you’re happy you lost, the new things that are important to you. You want everyone to recognize this and you want to share and discuss it, but there’s no way to describe the way your spirit evolves when you leave everything you know behind and force yourself to use your brain in a real capacity, not on a written test in school. You know you’re thinking differently because you experience it every second of every day inside your head, but how do you communicate that to others?

You feel angry. You feel lost. You have moments where you feel like it wasn’t worth it because nothing has changed but then you feel like it’s the only thing you’ve done that is important because it changed everything. What is the solution to this side of traveling? It’s like learning a foreign language that no one around you speaks so there is no way to communicate to them how you really feel.

This is why once you’ve traveled for the first time all you want to do is leave again. They call it the travel bug, but really it’s the effort to return to a place where you are surrounded by people who speak the same language as you. Not English or Spanish or Mandarin or Portuguese, but that language where others know what it’s like to leave, change, grow, experience, learn, then go home again and feel more lost in your hometown then you did in the most foreign place you visited.

This is the hardest part about traveling, and it’s the very reason why we all run away again.

swedish healthy-sugarfree-sticky chocolate cake.

- I made this delicious healthy chocolate cake. It's a tipycall swedish cake, similar to brownie and chocolate mud cake but much more sticky!
Here's how you make it:
     2.5 tsp cocoa
     ¼ mashed avocado
     1 egg white
     1 tsp melted coconut oil
     1-2 tablespoons sweetening
     1/4 teaspoon baking soda
     1 pinch of vanilla powder
     Optional: grated coconut, chopped nuts, a little peanut butter, chopped dried fruit ..


Mix the dry ingredients separately, then stir in the wet. Bake in oven for 10-12 minutes at 175 degrees in the oven. Align the cake so that it does not become dry, you can remove it after 10 minutes and test with a swab. It may even need to be inside less than 10 minutes, it depends on size (cake thickness) and oven.
I had it for 9 min cause I love when it's really sticky!

aussi talk in the sun.

- Met up lovely Karin, a girl who been traveling and living in Australia the same time as me but on the other side of the country.

much stuff up & around.

- Oh what a day. Woke up before 8 and went for an long power walk / hiking around a beautiful area called Galgberget with my yogi friend Suzana. We walked around for a hour in the nature and enjoying the worm morning.

After that I got to know that I messed up something with work and the hours. It's a bit crazy in my mind at the moment with all the new jobs and being on it at six different places and schedules... But it will soon be less and the same hours instead of different every week.
Now, all I will do is watch a movie, read in my driver license book, eat a healthy dinner and go to bed earlier.
Much stuff waiting tomorrow...!
