 Summer is here!
The sun is shining, 
the tourists have started to invade our little island
and this afternoon I'm welcoming my first guests at Muramaris!

This is the very first summer I'll be spending entirely on Gotland.
Anything else would just be wrong :)

I turn it off!

FINALLY an infographic and campaign about the enormously wasteful habit of leaving your engine running while you're not actually driving.
Something that has pissed me off for as long as I can remember will maybe finally die off and disappear!
Visit for a bigger version of the image above and TURN IT OFF!

Midsommar på Ekobyn

Sunshine & strawberries
Silly dances around the midsummer pole
Volleyball & disco in the meadow ...

The most perfect party that ended around the most perfect campfire.

Oh Sweden I love you so :)

Hello Health!

This is not a commercial - I (unfortunately) am not paid to write this blogpost - 
but this beast of a machine has been on my wish list for quite a while ...
and now she's mine!
Meet Judy the juicer & the first drinks she produced :)

Since the day was started on such a healthy note, 
we just continued with a kick-ass salad (partly home-grown) ...

... and finished with a disney movie & a healthy amount of chocolate :D

A Warm House

No house is complete without 
1. yellow accents
2. my pet stag Hugo
3. a space for long and elaborate breakfasts
4. a proper housewarming with good food and ever better people!

I've left my little student room for the summer and will be spending the next 2 months here.
Check out my facebook page "Sommarboende på Muramaris" if you're interested in your own little cottage in my summer paradise.

Friends & family - this is your chance! Come visit Gotland! 
I actually have a guest room these days! :D

Today was the opening of Gotlands Museum's newest exhibition: 
"Muramaris - to create one's dream" - about the place and its creators.

I can't begin to describe how magical it feels that I am now creating my own dream 
at the exact same place, roughly 100 years later.

This is how eerie Visby gets when the fog comes in ...

but when the harbour is full of boats you know summer is right around the corner!

For the first time since I moved here I won't be going anywhere during summer. 
I'm staying right here!
I'm moving to 'my' summerhouse in a couple of weeks
and I can't wait to share pictures with you :)
