Tokyo: Omotesando Wanderings

We’re in Tokyo. Days are filled with trying to cook, reading menus, wandering streets and working from cafes. And for me, apparently taking photos of textures? I think I got more than one weird look while I was photographing walls, rather than stuff today. Or it could be my two layers of black clothing, felt hat and boots in the 30-ish degree heat. To be fair though, I was wearing a dress.

Swedish Safari

Some days I wish I had shot more wildlife and had like a 400mm in my bag. Like tonight when a bunch of us went out on a Swedish Safari, spotted deers a plenty, some real big birds of prey, and dilly-ho, a couple of moose! I mean, come on! I might need to do this more often because dang this was magical.

Brunch + Snösätra

It was a busy day today. Well, I started with a wee bit of a sleep in, but then we headed to Lidingö for brunch with the family. I took no photos of the actual brunch because hell, I was too busy chumming down all the food. We took a small wander along the gorgeous view from the place we were at. Sweden’s really kinda pretty sometimes. My niece also wanted to gif with my dad and who am I to deny someone of some gif funness?

Once family times were over I headed south, picked up a friend or two along the way and headed to Snösätra, which is a small industrial area in the south of Stockholm which since 2014 has been the home of plenty of graffiti and outdoor art. We found lots of that. Plus a small cafe and a dog. Ehm, I might have taken too many photos of the dog Sickan, because unnggg I want a dog. So so so so badly.

All in all: good Sunday, no complaints here.

Christchurch day 1

After not knowing if we were going at all, we finally made it to New Zealand. The first full day consisted of:

1. Driving to the city and trying to find parking that wasn’t in the middle of a giant puddle of water.
2. Walking around the city center (trying to find me some shoes)
3. Drinking a syrup chai
4. Driving to a mall (!!)
5. Buying shoes. And stuff so I can charge my phone + listen to music while driving (so much driving!) + see maps
6. Driving to a big hill and watching a view of Christchurch that completely blew us away. Like literally. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced so much wind in like forever. Ever? I thought for a second that my phone would blow away if I let it go. Check the post below for windy gifs!

Now going to sip on my glass of wine and go to bed. BAI!
