Kråkeslottet: magic realism, new projects, raw nature and millionaire shortbread.

Life is a mystery and we never know where it takes us. We get to new places, meet new people and new challenges, see things from new perspectives. Couple of months ago it took me in a new place. A very special one. Far away north, on the most western part of the Senja island in Northern Norway where the wild sea meets the raw … Continue reading Kråkeslottet: magic realism, new projects, raw nature and millionaire shortbread.

Ice bathing? Seriously? Why? How?

One of my favourite things about living in the north is bathing in the cold water all year long. It might sound crazy, but it’s absolutely doable and it can be an amazing experience, an internal dive and a total energy kicker. Actually, it’s like yoga. You practice ease, presence, body awareness and feeling, and it makes you feel great. In this post I want to … Continue reading Ice bathing? Seriously? Why? How?

Life in the cabin, vegan Snickers bars and chocolate spaghetti.

I love staying at our cabin at Bjørnfjell in Northern Norway. It is a beautiful place near Swedish border with a very special landscape of large stone hills. The vegetation is limited to short trees, mousse and different kinds of mountain herbs and berries. Summers are really nice up here, with light days and nights, so it‘s not at all scary to be here alone. Staying … Continue reading Life in the cabin, vegan Snickers bars and chocolate spaghetti.

Gotland – the mystery island of beauty, openness and ease

During last two years I have heard too many good things about Gotland, the biggest Swedish island.

My curiosity grew bigger every day and couple of weeks ago we finally made it there. We: my boyfriend Gunnar and me. We … Continue reading Gotland – the mystery island of beauty, openness and ease

Zaira from Venice, the power of self care and vegan lemon cookies

We became closer … Continue reading Zaira from Venice, the power of self care and vegan lemon cookies

Yogi tea – the ayurvedic magic drink

During my student years I was living in Brno – a beautiful historical city in the south of the Czech republic which has so much to offer! I really appreciated the vibrant cultural life, beautiful nature, fruit and vegetable markets and lots of tea rooms – super relaxed Middle East inspired places which serve tea, water pipes and exotic snacks. The smell of scents and … Continue reading Yogi tea – the ayurvedic magic drink

Raw celebration

Sometimes we crave something basic, raw, cleansing and energising. Sometimes we want something sweet, fresh and indulging but still healthy.

This raw plate is a simple solution for all these situations.:) You can never go wrong with this one. … Continue reading Raw celebration

Shall I become a minimalist? What does it mean at all?

Minimalism. I have been hearing this word for quite a long time from all different directions and started to examine it more. I found out I actually had some minimalism traces in me already and wanted to further develop them because it is super interesting and makes a lot of sense. For me, being a minimalist means creating more space and clarity in my life … Continue reading Shall I become a minimalist? What does it mean at all?

The yoga chocolate bar

Yoga and chocolate are big friends. They both have power to make us feel ecstatic!
