Coffee & Coconuts - Amsterdam, Netherlands

One of the coolest restaurants we visited in Amsterdam most have been Coffee & Coconuts.
We went there for breakfast during our second day in the city, and I have to say that I'm impressed! The restaurant is three stories high and it's built in an old cinema where they have kept a lot of the original architecture from the 1920's which I (the architecture nerd) of course, loved. I had a smoothie bowl and a croissant and my boyfriend had some french toast and we were both satisfied with our choices.
Everything from the interior to the menu is tropical themed and I just loved every second of it. If I where a local in Amsterdam, I would probably hang here a lot, working on my computer with a smoothie in my hand. It just felt like such an inspiring atmosphere where you could sit for hours and hours!

Travel Throwback Thursday: Prague 2017

In the autumn of 2017, I traveled to Prague with my family.
We stayed in the Czech Republic capital for five days and explored as much as possible during our visit. Prague stayed intact during the world wars which means that there are a lot of old and beautiful buildings which I just adored - Prague is such a pretty city! We visited the Astronomical Clock, Charles Bridge, Old Town Square, Saint Nicholas, Prague Castle, the Powder Tower, Wenceslas Square, the Dancing House and Petrin Tower.
In other words, we walked a LOT. We also did a Harry Potter themed escape room and ate a lot of trdlnik. I really liked Prague, both because of the historical sites and the cheap food, haha. I have so many pictures from Prague so I'll probably write a couple of more posts about the city. If you want to know anything specific - write it in the comments below!

Fotomässan & Explore 2018 - Stockholm, Sweden

Yesterday I took the morning off work to go and nerd in my two favorite things: photography and exploring the world.
Fotomässan (= photography fair) and Explore Outdoors are two big fairs in Sweden, and this year they decided to have both of them combined in Stockholm and I think no one was happier than me when I heard the news. Especially since I won one ticket to the fair at Stockholm Photo Marathon last year which meant that I didn't even have to pay the entrance fee, haha!
I spent four hours roaming around the stalls, trying out camera equipment, listening to lectures from both photographers and adventures and signing up for pretty much every competition available. So can we all have our fingers crossed that I win a trip to hike the Inca Trail or climbing to base camp at Mount Everest? ;) I also got a t-shirt as an early bird gift for signing up to Stockholm Photo Marathon 2018 and brought home a bunch of magazines to scroll in and dream about beautiful destinations I would like to visit.
If you are in Stockholm this weekend - go and visit Fotomässan and Explore!
