timeless beaches - SHIRODA, (PAST NORTH GOA).

- Escaping the dirty, crazy Goa for some peace in the southern part of Maharashtra's paradise beach.
Who could say no to this?

traffic accident, sickness & beaches - GOKARNA, KARNATAKA.

- The night bus from Hampi to Gokarna was awful... I was in a accident a few days ago. I'm so blessed to not be hurt even while laying in the sleeper just behind the part where the biggest crash happened. Sending thoughts everyday to the people that got physical injuries...

The day after I got super sick with a mix of throwing up, sleep, weakness and zombie mood. But except from that I had a great time with friends staying in a bamboo hut camp, drums on the beach, hiking and amazing sunsets.

sunrise at monkey temple - HAMPI, KARNATAKA.

- Second morning. Only me, monkeys and the magical sunrise. Oh how I fell in love with this place. So peaceful... If I could, I would start every morning like this.

rocky town - HAMPI, KARNATAKA.

- A beautiful place out in nowhere is Hampi. Me and Arya walked around for hours and hour, enjoying it all.
During two mornings I climbed up the monkey temple to see the sunrise with the company of monks and monkeys.

orphanage yoga, palace & night train - MYSORE, KARNATAKA.

- I had the most amazing private ashtanga yoga class, kids yoga and just a great time in general in Mysore. When it was time for new adventures I took my new indian friend Arya with me on the night train to Hampi. Before bedtime a indian family shared their dinner with me.
Nandi & namasté to all you beautiful people! Except the old man who was grabbing my but at the market..! But don't worry. I gave him a lesson... ;)

devaraja market - MYSORE, KARNATAKA.

- One day me and my canadian friend Ryan went to the famous market in Mysore. Devaraja Market is the most organized and most beautiful market in India they say. Oh, and all the colors and smells...!

cs, orphanages & yoga - MYSORE, KARNATAKA.

- After the tea gardens in Kerala, me and my friend went different directions.
I wanted to spend more time deeper in to the indian culture and yoga. So I ended up taking a night bus to the ashtanga capital, Mysore in Karnataka.
As I arrived I had organized a couchsurfing place at some french students apartment. And just a few minutes later I already got opportunity to teach kids yoga in a couple of orphanages in Mysore! One for girls and one for boys. What a amazing time we all had!

trekking around the tea - MUNNAR, KERALA.

- We spent two nights up in the cool hills of Munnar. Views I'll never forget...

boybunsbeards - friday.

- Surprise surprise! Got some delicious eye candy for you all. Friday - good day.
Enjoy everyone. It's time for me to go out and breath in the new day here in Bydgoszcz, Poland.

tea garden trekking - MUNNAR, KERALA.

- After a crazy and mad bus ride up the mountains we finally reached Munnar. Stunning views, beautiful nature, lovely friends, funny locals and heaps of tea wherever you go (out of the city).

peaceful & fully alive city - FORT KOCHI, KERALA.

- Muslim neighborhood, faces filled with life, delicious thali & wandering on the streets at night.
Fort Kochi for the second time, but only as a stop-over before heading up to the green mountains and hills of tea...

wander in the town of backwaters - ALLEPPEY, KERALA.

- Me and my polish friend Marta took of to Alleppey, where you'll find the backwaters. Stayed there for a night to wander around, meet up with some of my friends and enjoy good food.

leaving the beach & loved ones - VARKALA, KERALA.

- Saying bye to the beaches of Varkala, my café & yoga jobs and my beautiful mum. Packing my 60L backpack and leave for new adventures with my polish friend I met on the beach and at the ashram.

faces of the arabic coastline - VARKALA CLIFF, KERALA.

- The time I spent on Varkala Cliff while working there got me so many beautiful and warm hearted friends. North Indians, south Indians, international, all kind of. Home to cross paths with them again. And some of them I've already crossing paths more than ones!


- Okay, six days is enough. Time go leave again. Going to Gothenburg for a couple of hours and try to catch up with some friends there. Then off to the airport to catch the flight down to my second home, Poland.
Just got a one-way ticket so we'll see how long I'll stay there..!

simple life filled with freedom - VARKALA, KERALA.

- Train rides, sunsets, beaches and temples.


- If you're into spirituality and you're in India there's no questions about if you're going to an ashram or not.
For you guys who don't know what th heck I'm talking about.. Traditionally, an ashram is a spiritual hermitage or a monastery. Additionally, today the term ashram often denotes a locus of Hindu cultural activity such as yoga, music study or religious instruction.

So while exploring Kerala with mum, we decided to visit one of the biggest ashrams and most known in south India as much as worldwide.
In the end we ended up spending less time than planned. There's so many different ashrams in India & outside of it too. So to just find the "right kind of" ashram for you is as hard at to find the right yoga teacher training if not ever harder. Shivananda was not our style but we're still grateful for trying it out.
Let me know if someone of you guys been to any ashrams before!


- Hello, g'day & namasté my people.
Starting the day with some eye candy and inspiration photos.

I've been home in Sweden for six days since India and Doha but now I'm off again for a while. Got a flight in 24h to my second home, Poland. It's time to go see some friends, spend time with family and sort out some things. Just living my polish life for a few weeks. How long? I don't know.. Let's see what the universe will tell me.

yoga in the morning & jam session at night - VARKALA, KERALA.

- Happyland was the first place I went for yoga at in India, the first place I got a job and started teaching yoga in India. It was also the place I met new friends, played drums in the night, gazing at the ocean before and after morning meditation, looking up at the sky filled with stars lighting up my gypsy eyes and making life long memories.

greeting the sea side - VARKALA, KERALA.

- Varkala beachcliff. The magazines says: quiet and peacefull beach.
If you compare with Goa, sure, anything is peacefull then. Even Mumbai! But compare to all the beaches I've been to in west India and around Kerala. The are much better.
But It was a good start on our trip to see how the tourist side looks like. And we still got close to the locals, avoiding being sorrunded by too many tourists.
There's heaps of restaurants at the cliff, markets for shopping and some yoga places.
50-60 rupees with a ricksaw from the local beach and you'll be in Varkala city. The city is like any other place in India. You'll cover your shoulders and knees. Avoid also too tight clothing. But at Varkala Beachcliff you can go loco and be in a bikini on the beach, wearing western style summer clothes ect. But be prepared that there will be (almost everyday) teen boys and old men walking on the beach spearing at you, taking photos, even without asking, spend the half day watching you or if you're a bit unlucky as I got one day, you might see someone jurking off while overlooking you and the other halfnaked foirgners.
The photos above from the beach at taking just after sunrise or sunset. So there will be much more people there depending on season.
Varkala, or any other place in Kerala is the best in the WORLD when it comes to Ayuverdic treatments. So get ready for that!
A local friend of my just told me that his families restaurant, the tibetan market and 12 other places burned down last friday! No one got hurt! But I'm still so sorry for all the peoples loss. No homes, food, money or buisness... Sending them love and light. x

train down south - KERALA.

- Traveling with trains is the biggest MUST DO while traveling around India. If you go only to north Goa for somephsycadelic parties and turisty shopping and feeling hard core taking the local bus to the airport instead of a ricksaw or eaven a fancy car, then I have to say that you haven't done India. You've been enjoying yourself alot in the more turistiest part of India. You've been to Goa, but you have'nt been to India.

Trains trough India is beautiful, magical, mad, crazy, and it will teach you more about India than a 400 dollar turist trip or any daily guided tours.
Buy the cheapest ticket at the railway staton (if you can manage it) or go spend a few extra bucks at a travel agency and then spend a few hours at the low class train with the locals.

cruising the backwaters - ALLEPPEY, KERALA.

- Exotic, green, alive, water, peacefulness is my cup of tea when it comes to nature. Sure I would never say no to spend time in the mountains, overlooking the with of wildness & villages. But there's something that keeps me more alive and it's this kind of nature I'm talking about.
At the ent of my four months in India, I visited the backwaters three times. Yeah, thats how good it is and it's the peak, the top of anything in south India.

street art & performance - FORT KOCHI, KERALA.

- Everything was explored by our wanderlust seeking eyes. Dance, music, food, culture, colors, emotions & pure life.
Not only this, but I also ran in to a lovely soul. One of my yoga teachers from Indonesia, an amazing girl from Japan. Oh how I love when the universe sometimes decides to let people cross the same path during different time of our lives and reconnect.

exploring the portuguese influence - FORT KOCHI, KERALA.

- Fort Kochi, old portuguese colony, art, culture, street art, delicious south Indian thali and entertainment. Some people don't like this place but for me it's on of my favourite big cities in India.

starting the adventure - CHERAI BEACH, KERALA.

- Decided to take a 3.5 weeks Mother-and-daughter-trip before my adventure. So we flew down to southwest of India, the richest state and birthplace of Ayurveda.
I wanted to introduce mum to the backpacker life and that includes trying all kind of accommodations.
Already at the first night we decided to do CS (couch surfing) and found a pretty rad place to stay at for free.
Just a bit north of Kochi was this private beach Cherai located.


Ph: 1. Contemporary art in one of the parks in Halmstad. 2. Photoshoot for JOSEA. 3. Food food food. 4. Frida and me finishing of a crazy workout at our old job. 5. A photo of me embracing the 90's hairstyle.
- Okay, you might ask why I'm first getting exited about the photos from India and then kicking up some old ones from last year.. No sweat. Sitting and getting them ready as fast as I can. Until then you just gotta live with these ones.


- Oh man... You've got no idea how much photos I'll but up soon. It's be overflowing with photos from almost the whole west India. Not too bad, huh?
& there's alot of photos from 4 months of traveling, working, exploring ect.
Talk to you soon. Stay safe!
