A roadtrip and a wedding

This weekend me and my family drove some 1000 km up to more northern parts of Sweden to attend my uncle’s wedding, here are some photos from the adventure, filled with breathtaking nature and a gorgeous wedding couple! ;) Warning for photo overload & click for bigger versions.

Hope you enjoyed the photos! Now it’s time for bed (as it has been for a few hours now..)

Goodnight everyone! :)

Night’s like these..

we all fall collage2

It’s nights like these I have to tell myself these words.

We stumbled upon a graveyard

One of the things that fascinated me with London was all the green places, especially the unkempt ones. I noticed when I got back home that most of my photos weren’t very typical London tourist photos.. but that also represents this trip very well – it wasn’t one of those trips. It was a magical ten days of exploring. On many levels.

A beautiful and kind of enchanting graveyard that we found when looking for Camley Street Natural Park.

A hairytale

When I decided to colour my hair I wasn’t sure for how long I’d keep it that way. I’m still not sure of course, but it has really grown on me, even though I loved my blonde hair this new red just feels.. like me. As if I was born with it. Either way I am really happy with the colour and the fairytale sort of vibe that it creates :)

Maybe I'll continue to colour it and let my hair grow really long. Now that would be a fairytale to me.. flowing red hair that went beyond my waist.

It's also more fun for some reason to braid it and create hairdos since it became red :P

Photo overload

Hampstead Heath was one of those places I just really wanted to visit. And as it turned out it was a magical place, it felt like we were walking around in a fairytale all day.. Click the images for a better view

This swan was on of the very first things that greeted us when we came to Hampstead Heath.

As it then turned out we went back to the little town in search of a new, bigger memory card for my camera, since I realised the one I had wouldn't get me far. This i one of the exciting places we passed on the way.

Another place we passed as we wandered around (quite lost for a while).

Remembering London

As you may or may not have noticed I went to London in October. You may also have noticed my lack of reporting on my visit there. Well, I guess that’s life. And here I am now, finally writing about it. I quite like writing about it after a bit of time has passed, gives me the chance to reminisce :) I won’t post it all at once as it would be a very long and photo-heavy post :P But I’ll try and update as often as I can.

If you wander around Hammersmith you find cute places like these :)

And if you turn around this amazing view will greet you. A more beautiful part of the river Thames than the one in the most central parts of London.

Me and my fellow traveler wandered around and thought we were lost when we finally stumbled upon the much anticipated pub The Dove. It was everything I wanted and more :)

Here it is - the world's tiniet pub (at least I think so)! We even missed it when we first walked in :P

The tiniest pub was occupied when we arrived so we sat down in the main area instead (just as cosy and lovely!).

So, this was my first post on London. We did a lot of strolling around in the nooks and crannies of London and we found many places that now hold dear memories :)
