Back in the beginning of July Visit Värmland asked me and my buddy Aske if we wanted to come experience Värmland during summer. Of course we wanted to do so, so we packed our rental and drove north for 7 hours. First stop was Krokstad Herrgård where we were welcomed with a lovely five course meal.
The mansion was really idyllic, and the perfect place for a getaway!
The next day we went to Arvika where we would spent the next day at Arvika Kanotcenter. The canoe center was placed right by a wonderful lake with loads of opportunities for both shorter canoeing trips and longer and more serious trips. Later that evening we had dinner in a tent, in a perfect setting.
After that we set out to catch the sunset. Canoeing in the evening is extremely relaxing. I don't get to canoe very often, but sitting in the middle of the ocean watching the sun rise/set is pretty hard to beat. We also woke up at 3.30 to catch the sunrise the following morning, which was one of the best sunrises I've ever seen.
After having slept some more we went to Glaskogen Nature Reserve. A beautiful and lush green area, where we also got to do some canoeing.
We then spent the night in Karlstad, and proceeded to drive home after lunch the next day.
I love visiting Sweden all times of the year, but there's something about Sweden in the summertime that you won't find anywhere else.
This year I had the pleasure of being a volunteer at Musik i lejet. An annual festival right at the coast of Tisvilde - perfect setting for a festival! Due to work I only had time to participate Saturday.
Regardless I had a lot of fun shooting concerts!
I will definitely be back next year!
Back in the end of April i visited Lisbon with my buddy @mathiasmilton. We stayed right near Bairro Alto, and we really had a wonderful stay!
From crooked narrow streets, extremely fresh fish, pastel de nata's, empanadas, steep streets, amazing viewpoints and wonderful hospitality - Lisbon has it all.
Lisbon is actually Western europe's oldest city, and that shows. Much of the city is extremely old, but rather than building something new and modern, they try to restore and maintain the old ones. As a lover of old architecture, that really pleases me!
In my opinion Lisbon is an extremely underrated city and i recommend to just about everyone.
We stayed from friday until sunday and we didn't waste anytime. We covered just about every part of the city and spent several hours in the metro shooting like crazy.
Running out of places to shoot in Stockholm is difficult because the city is packed with places to do so. There's the more elegant older architecture and there's modern stuff - like the metro stations. The metro stations really impressed me! Comparing them to the Copenhagen ones would be like comparing a Ferrari to a block of lego.
These pictures were all taken one week before the recent attack in Stockholm. Please don't let this make you afraid of visiting Stockholm. It's such a lovely and friendly city!
Until next time, Stockholm.
Saturday I went to see the local football club, BK Frem, play against FC Sydvest. BK Frem is known for once having been a very succesful football club, then going bankrupt, then going bankrupt once again, and finally they're know for their very charismatic support group: Paulis Rødder.
Paulis Rødder is filled with people from every social class. The poor, the middle class, the local drunks, a lot of young people and even kids going with their parents. No Classism, no judgement - just a great amount of love for their team.
The energy at the games is fantastic. The team may not be very succesful anymore, but that doesn't stop people from showing. Around 700 people were present at the game this Saturday.
I highly recommend going to one of their games, and maybe even getting a pre-game beer at Mozarts bodega.
We stayed at @superbude in the st. Pauli area, which was a great area and a great hostel. Some parts of st. Pauli even reminded me of Kreuzberg - very hip!
All in all, Hamburg was pretty rad. I really liked the slick ways they managed to mix old and modern architecture. Something that Copenhagen could learn a lot from.
Thank you for having us @mein_hamburg.
I was contacted by Opel Denmark who wanted me to help them promote the new MOKKA X. I chose to go on a five day road trip in Sweden with the car. And I also got to bring along my good friend @askejorgensen.
We experienced a lot of great autumns sceneries. Some with brown leaves falling, and others with heavy snowstorms. We got to visit places like: Kullen, Götland, Högklint, Folhammar, Imelln, Söderåsen Nationalpark, Forsakar Naturreservat and most important of all, we got to experience feeling lost without feeling that was a bad thing.
This trip was sponsored by Opel Denmark. A huge thanks to them, and a huge thank you to Aske for being a good partner in crime.
Instagram for me is sometimes limiting. Limiting because a lot of the pictures I take wouldn't stand a chance on Instagram.
So here's a lot of re-edited pictures from Rome back in april, that never made their way to my Instagram, but that I personally love.
