Heeeey guys! As you probably already know, I’m back home from Mexico and it’s time to tell you more about our experiences over there. Tulum is and has been a very popular destination for many years now and I’m glad that I got the chance to experience it, together with my brother.
Where did we live?
The very first days in Tulum we stayed at a private retreat called “Playääkun Lyxury Villa” located inside the Sian Ka’an Biosphere in Tulum (south end of Tulum). One of the reasons I liked this area was because we had days when we were all alone at the beach, imagine that!
The Villa we lived in was huuuuge and we shared it with other people but had our own room. We also had a chef and a staff (the best) who constantly was around if we needed something. This was one of the benefits living with other people, actually getting to know them. Don’t this place look like paradise?
What did we do?
Tata Tulum: This place was nice and like many of the places that are located right on the beach, we had to pay an amount of money (we also got to eat for the money and got our own sun beds) if we wanted to get in there. But if you want to go there for a drink, check if you can because I’m pretty sure that you are supposed to be able to do this. Other alternatives with nice “beach vibes” are Coco tulum, Nest tulum, Nomad etc. You have so so many since they are all located next to each other on the beach and the beach is like 7-8km long.
Grand cenote: This was a MUST so one morning we woke up a bit earlier, rented a car and went here. I think we was there at around 8-9 but unfortunately even though we thought that we were early and it wouldn’t be so many people there, it was. So, if you want to capture some nice shots with less people, wake up EARLY. However this place was so cool and beautiful at the same time. If you come here, have in mind that you have to pay an entrance fee and stay here for at least a couple of hours.
Biking: Another MUST that I think you should experience if you visit Tulum. It’s fun and it’s easier to get to places in case you don’t have a car. Al though I must admit that we regret that we didn’t rent a car from the Cancun airport right away instead of renting it two days and then going with taxi the rest of the days as it turned out to be more expensive.
Pablo Escobar’s Tulum mansion – Casa Malca: This place was cool! We stopped here to capture some photos and it looks incredible! But if you’re planing to visit, I would rather recommend you to come here and stay at the beach for a couple of hours.
Kin Toh: You have probably not missed this spectacular place! It’s a restaurant at the Azulik resort, which you must have seen on instagram. Just like many other hotels here in Tulum, they have a sustainable thinking (+++). We didn’t have the time to explore the hotel, which I think you should if you visit, but we went for drinks at the restaurant. If you ask me, this is not only a restaurant, this is whole experience.
Nomade: After many recommendations we decided to visit Nomade. We went there for lunch and I must say that the whole hotel- and area was so beautiful. For lunch me and Alen chose shrimp tacos since I got it recommended but to be honest this was less good, especially since the princes here are a high. Besides of this I liked the atmosphere and the vibe at this place.
Suytun cenote: After seeing pictures of this magical place, we just had to visit it. So, one morning we rented a car and went there. I took us around 1,5h to get there from Tulum beach and we arrived at around 9.30am. It opens at 9 so once again, try to be here before 9 and I’m sure that they would let you in anyway. Me and Alen had like 1 minute to capture a picture without any people hehe. However, this place was interesting, mysterious and impressive. One tip that I must give you is, when you’re planing to visit Chichen Itza (a must), visit this place first, as it’s on the way!

Always the best welcome <3 Such a pretty room though!
Lunch-time and I loved this meal! Both me and N chose the suggestion of the day and we got this pasta with wild mushrooms lingere and some beef, so so tasty! Also we had to add fries, like always 😉
Then we got the opportunity to check out the suites in the hotel and this one caught my eye, The Riviera suite. I got so inspired by the furniture and just loved the color combination on the sofa.
Then we went out for a walk. Wearing a cap from Lack of color, Coat from Tularosa, Shirt from Vergiegirl, pants from Nelly, Sunglasses from Prada, bag from Gucci and boots from Louis Vuitton.
Coffe-time in the sun
can we talk about bathroom goals?
no words needed
It was a short visit at home in Malmö before it was time to fly to Cannes. Paris didn’t have good weather at all, so I didn’t hesitate to go to Cannes, even if it would be for three days. Me and Natalie that came along, stayed at one of my favorite hotels, namely Hotel Barriere Le Majestic. The view from each room is absolutely magical and you certainly haven’t missed that 🙂 Once in Cannes, we did nothing special, but only enjoyed the better weather, spent time at our hotel, ate lunch/dinner and even went to the gym. Besides this we walked around in the area, took some photos and just chilled. Sometimes it’s enough to go away for only 2-3 days and come back with new energy and motivation. Now it’s a bit comical that it comes from me who travels but also from other peoples perspective, I know that it’s true. Hope you are all well and I hope you are going hard with March Challenge! Today will be my 9th session, can’t wait! Love, S
Det blev ett kort besök hemma i Malmö innan det var dags att ta flyget till Cannes. Paris hade inte alls bra väder så jag tvekade inte på åka till Cannes, även om det enbart var för tre dagar. Jag och Natalie som följde med, bodde på ett av mina favorit hotell, nämligen Hotel Barriere Le Majestic. Utsikten från varje rum är helt magisk och ni har säkert inte missat det 🙂 Väl i Cannes gjorde vi inget speciellt utan bara njöt av bättre väder, spenderade tid på vårt hotell, åt lunch/middagar och hann även med ett pass på gymmet. Förutom detta promenerade vi runt i området, fotade lite och bara tog det lugnt. Ibland räcker det verkligen att åka bort i enbart 2-3 dagar och komma tillbaka med ny energi och motivation. Nu är det lite komiskt att det kommer från mig som reser en del men utifrån andras perspektiv så vet jag att också att det stämmer bra. Hoppas ni alla har det bra och jag hoppas ni kör hårt med March Challenge! idag blir det mitt 9:de pass, can’t wait! Love, S

Once in Mostar, I wanted to go and visit this beautiful place called Tekija Blagaj, which I surprisingly have never visited before. It is only 15 minutes away, by car. Me, my grandmother and my cousin decided to go there and have lunch. It had been raining and we thought it was a great idea because we assumed it would be less crowded, which it was. Such a beautiful little place. If you get the chance, you must go here! My beautiful country. Love, S
Väl i Mostar ville jag åka och besöka detta vackra ställe, Tekija Blagaj, som jag förvånansvärt aldrig besökt tidigare. Det ligger endast 15 minuter ifrån, med bil. Jag, mormor och min kusin bestämde oss för att åka dit och luncha. Det hade regnat och vi tyckte att det var en perfekt ide då vi antog att det skulle vara mindre folk, vilket det var. Jättevackert verkligen. Får ni möjlighet så måste ni åka hit! Mitt vackra land. Love, S

Finally arrived in Belgrade and reunited with my girl Mia! Can you believe that we got to know each other in Dubai when I was there on vacation at the beginning of this year haha. We have kept in touch the whole time and tomorrow we are going to Budva together, so excited!
So today she took me to this nice restaurant and the food was amazing. Everything was literally melting in my mouth and we left the place with food babies haha 😉 The place is called “Homa” so if you ever visit Belgrade, you must come to this place. The rest of the day we have just been strolling around and exploring Belgrade city. Love, S
Äntligen framme i Belgrad och återföreenad med min tjej Mia! Kan ni fatta att vi lärde känna varandra i Dubai i början av året när jag var på semester haha. Vi har hållit kontakten och imorgon åker vi till Buda, ska bli så kul!
Idag tog hon med mig till en fin restaurang som heter “Homa” och maten var otrolig. All bara smälte i munnen och vi lämnade stället proppmätta. Så kommer ni hit så måste ni besöka stället! Resten av dagen har vi bara gått runt och utforskad staden. Love, S

The Adriatic Sea is close to my heart. Of all the places I have been to in the world, the fact remains that this sea, the smell, the purity and feeling beats everything. Thats why we got so excited when we found this secret hideaway place right next to our hotel. However, the water was too cold for my part, but there will be other opportunities. Love, S
The adriatiska havet står mig varmt om hjärtat. Av alla ställen jag varit på i världen så kvarstår faktumet att detta hav, lukten, renheten och känslan slår allt. Därför blev vi så glada när vi fann detta smultronställe precis bredvid hotellet. Dock var vattnet för kallt för mig del, men det kommer fler tillfällen. Love, S
