PCT – Kapitel 13 : Oregon


För 7700 år sedan kollapsade och sjönk den ca 3660 m höga vulkanen Mount Mazama ner i den underjordiska sjö av lava som samlats under den. Detta bildade en ca 9,8 x 7,5 kilometer bred och 592 meter djup krater som efter hand fylldes med regn, snö och smältvatten. Mer lava pressades upp ur jorden

PCT – Kapitel 11 : Halvvägs


Så kom jag slutligen fram till den punkt på leden som jag i förväg oroat mig allra mest för. Punkten där stolpen som markerar ledens mittpunkt står. Att oroa sig för att komma halvvägs kanske låter konstigt, men jag var orolig för att om jag när jag kom fram hit kände mig någorlunda trött på

Lost in transit


På grund av det amerikanska postsystemet har jag tyvärr inte kunnat uppdatera min blogg vid mitt senaste etapp-stopp. Jag har de senaste dagarna befunnit mig i South Lake Tahoe, (mile 1090) och väntat på min dator som varit på vift i posten. Dessvärre har den fortfarande inte dykt upp och jag måste nu vandra vidare,

PCT – Kapitel 8 : Vatten


Bishop – Mammoth Lakes. 118 miles / 190 km – När jag gjorde research inför min vandring längs the Pacific Crest Trail kunde jag läsa att när man kom till the Sierras skulle ens tempo drastiskt minska. Vandrade man vanligtvis 20 miles per dag skulle man inte bli förvånad om man där trappade ner till 10.

PCT – Kaptiel 7 : Snö


Kennedy Meadows – Bishop. 86 miles / 138 km – Så var det äntligen dags för den del av leden jag både sett fram mot och fasat för: Sierra Nevada. Här skulle ökenlandskapet bytas mot höga snötäckta berg. Redan i Kennedy Meadows gick diskussionerna heta mellan de entusiastiska vandrarna. Hur mycket snö var det? Skulle

PCT – Kaptiel 6 : Slitage


Tehachapi – Kennedy Meadows. 144 miles / 232 km – Kära följare, jag kan med glädje meddela att jag nu kommit fram till Kennedy Meadows, platsen som markerar slutet på södra Kalifornien och början av Sierra Nevada bergen! Detta innebär att jag nu klarat av den första delen av the Pacific Crest Trail och vandrat 702

PCT – Kaptiel 5 : Mojaveöknen


Aqua Dulce – Tehachapi. 104 miles / 167 km – Efter en dryg månad på leden, i ett väder som inte kanske varit det mest karaktäristiska för öknen så har jag till slut kommit fram till den så kallade Mojaveöknen, ledens förmodligen varmaste del. Mojaveöknen kallas också ”the high desert” på grund av den höga höjd

Back in Stockholm after a wonderful week at the High Coast, Sweden. Been biking, hiking, climbing, camping, filming and so much more. Last night was spend on this magical island at the hostel @hogbonden - an old lighthouse that’s the only building on the island (except for its sauna that’s located on the cliffs by the sea). Can highly recommend a stop here if you visit the High Coast!

Leave nothing but foot prints.👣 - The most obvious “rule” there is in nature, but unfortunately we need to be reminded over and over again. Right now @hallsverigerent and @naturkompaniet has a campaign where you get this bag at their stores - for free! Just ask at the desk. The bag is washable and perfect for storing your trash when you’re out so you easily can bring it home. .
Another way to reduce the amount of trash in nature is also to not bring any in the first place! Bring water in reusable bottles, food in your own lunch boxes, snacks that’s not wrapped in paper or no single use plates or cutlery. For example.

Yesterday I wrote about the weather conditions in the Swedish mountains during the summer. This pic is from Hemavan last year. Even if the weather was clear and sunny when I started driving towards the mountains and the start of the trail ‘Kungsleden’, this is what the weather looked liked only one hour from where I started. As the text said, if your going up the mountains, always be prepared for weather changes!

Thinking about hiking in the Swedish mountains this summer? Even though it’s summertime, the weather can still be harsh in the mountains. Rain, wind and even frost is common, even this time of the year. The Swedish counsel for Mountain Safety, ’Fjällsäkerhetsrådet’, has therefore put together a text about how you stay safe in the mountains!

Happy 4th of July everybody! 🇺🇸🎉
Three years ago, I visited the United States for the very first time and it sure was love at first sight. That time I stayed a month, the year after I came back for 6 months and hiked across the country along the 2660 mile long Pacific Crest Trail. A journey that sure changed my life. Since then I’ve been back two times and I can’t hardly wait till next time.
I might not agree with the politics in the country, but I love the nature and the people I’ve met along my journeys are the most loving and generous people I’ve ever met.
So cheers to ‘Merica today and cheers to all my lovely friends over there! 🎉😘💕🇺🇸

Since I started using more sustainable products than using the single-use products we get at the restaurants or stores (plastic bags, coffee cups, take away boxes, straws, fruit bags, water bottles etc.), I have really come to understand how much trash we’re actually consuming in our daily life and how easy we can do something about it! .
With the #BringYourOwnChallenge I wanted to make more people aware of this. Now I want to challenge ALL OF YOU to try and accept the challenge as well! It’s super easy and it will help spread the word how easy you can make the world a better place! 💕
This is how it works:
.
☀️Bring your own reusable item and say no to single-use.
☀️Post a photo of it & challenge a friend to do the same!
☀️Tag #BringYourOwnChallenge

The @viaferrata at Skuleberget in the High Coast in Sweden, Europe’s biggest Via Ferrata center. The center has many different routes, both for beginners and more experienced climbers. This is where I first tried climbing in 2015, after years of wanting to try. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to climb here again since then. Can’t wait to get back here soon! .

Isn’t it fascinating how different we people are? I just love being on the road, to always have something going on. Right now I have four or five places that I call home. This, the back of my van, is one of them. Some (or quite many I guess) would find it weird to not wanna have one stable spot and to always be in the move. And honestly, I have tried to live that way and it only makes me feel unhappy. As the years have passed and I’ve got to know myself better and better, I’ve realized that THIS is how I want to live my life. Always moving, never knowing what tomorrow will bring. 
I’m not saying that it’s wrong to wanna live the other way, or any other way for that sake. It’s only makes us human more and more interesting. It’s the difference between us that makes us special. 💕✨

Tomorrow I’ll be heading towards the west coast to talk about following your heart and to believe in yourself and dreams. Hope to see some of you at ‘Fotografi Falkenberg’ on Sunday!

Dear friends, I need your help! 🙏
For a while now I’ve gotten more and more interested in getting a sailboat. They’re much cheaper than other boats and are basically the same as a van - but at sea! A mobile home that can take you anywhere the van can’t! 
I don’t know much about sailing though - or boats, but I guess I’ll have to learn along the way - and what would be a better way to learn than to get one!?
.
So please hit me with your best tips and advice! I want to know everything from what to think of when buying one to the actual art of sailing. 
Ohoy! 🙏⛵️💕
