Etapp 6.1 Sörmlandsleden

2467309Elina and Alexander took on ikea and I decided to go on a nice Sunday walk. This was an excellent day out with the sun shining and the temperature at around 15 degrees celcius. This wrapped up e-tapp 6.1 and parts of 6.0 on Sörmlandsleden. Actual distance is closer to 15 kilometers, I started tracking late. This e-tapp starts in Flemingberg (huddinge stockholm) and makes it way down to crossing towards Paradis. Read More

Backpain hell and sleeping on a pad

I love to be out in nature, I love sleeping over and just enjoying my time out in the woods. I don’t need to be gone very long, usually when I just need to get out, a one night sleep over is enough.

Gear reviewsIphone Photography

Hipstamatic iphone app review

I will say it right off the bat – I have never been a fan of “phone” photography. pixelated, terrible colours, almost always crappy selfies and the cheap feel of Instagram. In other words I hate phone photography. With that said, I still made the decision to bring only my Iphone 5s with me on my Coast 2 coast Sweden thru-hike. Why? I just couldn’t be bothered to bring my lovely Sony A7 and Zeiss 35mm lens. It was added weight that the hike couldn’t really justify. Read More
