Wilderness Stories opens Print Shop! Opening offer: 10% discount till April 2nd!

On September 24, 2016, did I crossed the Canadian border from the United States and finished my hike along the Pacific Crest Trail. On the day six months later, on March 24, 2017, did I hold the premiere and opening of my exhibition ”From Mexico to Canada, 4280 kilometers on the Pacific Crest Trail” with photographs of the trail! The exhibition, which includes 32 images from a total of 175 days in the wilderness is now showing at ProCenter (Alsnögatan 11, 4th floor) in Stockholm, Sweden until April 7th, at the store’s regular hours, Mon-Fri: 8-17. It will also be shown in other places around Sweden later this year, so stay tuned for more dates and places! (To the right if you sit at a computer/below this post if you’re using a mobile, you can sign up to get an email when I post somehting on the blog!)


As I open up the exhibition, I also open my own Print Shop here on the Wilderness Stories! You find the direct link to the shop in the top menu. In the shop, a selection of my photographs are up for sale as photo prints (ColorPrint) and they can be purchased in sizes 21×30, 30×40, 50×70 and 70×100 cm, which is adapted to the standard dimensions of frames available in stores. The pictures are sold without frames and are delivered rolled in a tube of hard cardboard, but if you have special requirements in terms of both size and frames do not hesitate to email them to info@wilderness-stories.com!

If you order before April 2nd 2017, you will get a 10% discount on your purchase, so check out the shop today if you want to decorate your own or someone else’s home with beautiful nature scenes!

Someone once asked me if I didn't loose track of the days hiking the PCT. My answer was 'No, it was actually the opposite, I could easily recall the days, even months back. We just didn't call them by the name we use in "normal life". In the wild we simply referred to them after what made them special.' This is for example a pic from "Fog Day" (or as all the others would call it, May 6) last year. 
PCT, mile ~426

Pic from PCT mile ~1973, in one of the weirdest landscapes I've ever seen: the lava fields in Oregon.
Passing the 2600-mile marker on the PCT was a big thing for me. Being the last 100-marker with only 50 mile to go it was clear that I was gonna complete the entire trail. Now I've seen that I've also passed 2600 followers here on Instagram! I'm so happy for all of you and that you want to follow me on my adventures! Hearing from you, meeting you and hear your own stories is what keeps me going - so from the bottom I'm my heart, THANK YOU! ❤️
One year ago today, on June 5th 2016, I summited my very first mountain, Mount Whitney on a side trail of the PCT. With its 14505 ft / 4421 meter it counts as the highest mountain in the "lower 48" (the U.S. except the 2 states of Alaska and Hawaii). It was a bit tricky in the snow, but we all made it! I know there's a lot more snow in the Sierras this year so I wish all the thruhikers of 2017 all the best and also want to send them a reminder to stay safe. If Whitney feels to risky when you pass it, you can always do it later. The mountains won't go anywhere. ❤️
If you have a dream or something you really want to do, it can be a little bit scary to make it happen. We make up ideas about why now isn't the right time, why it's better to do it later. But the truth is that there's no better time than right now. Don't push forward your dreams. Make them happen. ☀️
Me after my first full day of kayaking last week. It was a bit scary and on this pic I'm super tired but so happy at the same time because I finally did it! And it was so much fun!
If there's something you feel like trying, just do it. Don't make up excuses for why now isn't the best time. Yesterday I rented a kayak and crossed through the islands in the Stockholm archipelago for the very first time. I moved here 13 years ago and I can't believe it's took me so long to do this! 
Good side with the story though: It's never to late.
2:30 in the morning and the sun is slowly rising over the Baltic Sea. I just love those bright summer nights. ❤️
Spent the whole day yesterday in the beautiful Nacka nature reserve just outside Stockholm. It's amazing how fast you can get out in nature, even in such a big city as the capital of Sweden! From the stockholm central station it's less then a 30 minutes drive and with the metro it will go even faster!
Tried a new form of workout yesterday: I put my backpack on and cycled to the store for some grocery shopping. 15K and 15kg on my back surely made me feel both good and exhausted afterwards!
