Kvällskurs i lavinkunskap


Ett obeskrivligt dån, mark som sjunker ner under fötterna och som sedan börjar glida undan, snabbare och snabbare. Paniken när snön hinner ikapp och från till att en början bara bildat ett diffust moln till att bli tjockare och tjockare och tjockare och sen – svart. Allt är kaos för en stund och sedan blir

Hjälp mig till Fjällräven Polar 2017!


Nästan två månader har gått sedan jag blev klar med min vandring på Pacific Crest Trail och nu har jag äntligen börjat blicka framåt och drömma om mitt nästa äventyr. Och det finns ett som fångat min uppmärksamhet lite extra. Den tredje april 2017 går nämligen enligt mig ett av vinterns häftigaste äventyr av stapeln:

Äventyrstips för dig som vill fly höstrusket!


De kallare graderna har svept in över landet och härom dagen dränktes Stockholm i gråväder och snöslask. Dagarna blir kortare och mörkare. Kanske inte den mest peppande årstiden att ge sig ut i vildmarken (även om den rätta utrustningen kan göra även det till en upplevelse). Jag tänkte därför bjuda på några tips på vad

PCT – Kaptiel 15 : Mot Kanada!


En lucka mellan träden. Tjock skog som för några meter plötsligt upphör. En glipa, en strimma som sträcker sig upp så långt jag kan se, över berget i horisonten. Tomrummet markerar gränsen. Målet. På den vänstra sidan ligger USA. På den högra, Kanada. Om bara några ögonblick kommer min vandring att vara slut, några steg

PCT – Kapitel 14 : Höst


Den första september 2016 kom hösten till Pacific Crest Trail och samma dag tog jag stegen över Bridge of the Gods in i Washington, ledens sista delstat. Leden var full av orangea löv och på himlen hopade sig molnen hotfullt och nästa dag kom vad jag bävade för – regnet. Ett hällregn som höll i

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. 💕
