My Fjällräven Polar Video

Time flies and this weekend I’ll go to Gothenburg to talk about PCT and Fjällräven Polar at Scandinavian Photo Expo in Mölndal (my talk is 11-12am at friday 12). For this I have put together my own video from my Polar adventure and of course I have to share it with you too as well!

Fjällräven Polar 2017

The sun is shing, snowflakes spinning around in the air. Razor sharp mountains dramatically reaches towards the clear blue sky, Arctic tundra as fa you can see. 300 kilometres wilderness and the only thing that breaks the silence of nature is your own breath, the dog’s paws running across the snow and the whizzing of the sled under

Leaving beautiful Switzerland after almost a week. I'm so stunned by how much beauty this small country has to offer. I've seen everything from green lush valleys to glacier covered mountains, plam trees, pine trees, crystal clear rivers, magnificent cliff walls with never ending waterfalls, alpine lakes and foggy forests. I've been hiking, kayaking, climbing mountains, challenged fears and met the most inspiring people at @thenorthface #mountainfestival. This trip has truly made a mark in my heart. ❤️🇨🇭
Challenge your fears and you'll grow as a person. Today I did the thing I been most worried and scared about since I got interested in climbing mountains - I crossed a crevasse! 😱 And I'm so happy and so proud of myself!!
But you don't have to challenge your biggest fears to grow. By starting with small things it's gonna be easier to deal with the big ones too. Without doing that myself, there's no way I would have dared doing this today!
So go out tonight and do something you worry about! 😉
The world, your life and your dreams are out there. Go grab them! 💕#mywildernessstory
Always say yes to things you want - and tell that negative voice in your head that tell you not to, to shut up! 
I am currently in Switzerland for a week, but for a long time I wasn't sure if I should go or not. Money and time was my biggest reasons not to. - But I don't wanna wait for my life to happen. My life is right here, right now.
So I decided to go and I made it happened. Today I hiked along this beautiful river and even if it's just my first full day here, I'm a 100% sure I made the right decision coming here. ❤️
Another pic from this weekend in northern sweden. There is really no other place that I love to be in as much as the mountains. The mountains makes me calm and relaxed. They make me forget all the problems I might have and the only thing that matters is the moment, the beautiful surroundings and my body that takes me forward. They really makes me feel so alive, so strong and so happy. 🏔💚
Leaving northern Sweden after an amazing spontaneous weekend among the mountains. 
Honestly, I was a bit ambivalent before I went. The tickets were not cheap, but looking back at it: this trip has been worth every cent and I'm so happy for not stopping myself from exploring new parts of this beautiful country. You can't put a price on memories. 💕
Filling our lifes with memorable moments are important, but don't forget to stop and enjoy the moments as well. Don't rush through them. Only this way you'll be able to make memories that will last for the rest of your life. 💕
Pic from my sunrise kayak trip awhile ago, where the incredible stillness of the water only was broken by the drops from my paddle when I stopped to enjoy the sun rising in the horizon. 🌅
Went back to work for the first time today after my summer vacation. Looking back over the summer that's passed I must say that I'm very proud and happy for all the things I've done. I've been hiking and climbing mountains in the US, I've biked around Stockholm, I've been to music festivals, traveled around in my van and explored the stockholm archipelago by boat with my boyfriend and his daughter. And I also been able to really try out my new passion: kayaking! 
For all this I have one very special person to thank. Myself. Without my own choices to do all this, it would never have happened. So remember that, only you are responsible for filling your life with the things you want. 💕
