Smultronstället (swedish, n.)
lit. "place of wild strawberries"; a special place discovered, treasured, returned to for solace and relaxation; a personal idyll free from stress or sadness.
This blog started in 2012 with my gap year after high school, that I spent in Chile, Brasil, Bali and Thailand.
After my travels I decided to move to Sweden, studying International Relations while trying to see as much as possible of this beautiful planet. I have since traveled around Europe, spent a semester abroad in lovely Brighton and two wonderful months in South America after graduating with my BA.
Currently I am back in Germany, juggling my Masters, having my first flat and my major Wanderlust.
When I first read the word smultronstället while learning Swedish I absolutely fell in love with it as it combines so many of the things I love: the cute swedish language, wild strawberries and special treasured places in your life.
It is exactly that what I would like this blog to be: a place to where you return after a bad day or to relax focusing on the beautiful little things in life, which for me are good books, amazing travels, delicious food and nice clothes. Sounds like something you could like as well?
Go on my journey with me to find more and more smultronställen across our beautiful blue planet.

"Since I was born I had known I was a writer. I had the will, the ability, the courage and the capacity to be a writer. I had never stopped writing and never imagined doing anything else. Though I never believed I could live on it. But I was ready to die for it."
