HOLA TULUM!

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 MalcaThis 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.

NomadeAfter 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!

BALI, INDONESIA

 – This post is in collaboration w/ Lapoint surfcamp – 

 

We are heeeereee!! Bali has been one of the destinations I have wanted to visit for a long time and I’m so so happy to finally be here 😀 Me and Lisa are here together with Lapoint surfcamp and we’re actually staying at their new camp in Bali located in Gianyar. We have a big beautiul villa, an amazing staff and we’re here with a bunch of other people from all over the world. So far I have been attented three classes and I’m loving it! This is my second time surfing (ever) and I only want to get better and better. Besides of surfing we have also been doing some other things such as going to a waterfall here in the near, eating dinner at a beautiful restaurant at the Comune Keramas and also been hiking up volacno batur. Here are some pictures that I want to share with you so far, I hope you enjoy them! Talk soon. Love, S

Vi är hääääär!! Bali har varit en av de destinationer jag velat besöka länge och därför är jag så himla glad att äntligen vara här 😀 Jag och Lisa är här tillsammans med Lapoint surfcamp och vi bor faktiskt på deras alldeles nyöppnade camp som ligger i Gianyar. Vi har en stor fin villa, en underbar personal och är här med andra människor från olika delar av världen. Hittills har jag deltagit i två surflektioner och jag älskar det! Detta är min andra gång jag surfar (ever) och jag vill bara bli bättre och bättre! Förutom surfningen så har vi även gjort andra saker bland annat besökt ett vattenfall här i närheten, ätit middag på en fin restaurang på resorten Comune Keramas och även hikea:t upp för vulkanenen Batur. Här kommer några bilder som jag hunnit ta än så länge hoppas ni gillar dem! Hörs snart, Love
