When it comes to travelling and exploring new countries or cities, one always tends to choose the ones that are furthest away first, kind of ignoring the places where we live. It’s a phenomenon that I experienced more than once. Growing up in Magdeburg, it took me 14 years to actually set foot in the Magdeburg Cathedral for the first time. It is the oldest Gothic cathedral in Germany and one of the most important sights to see when visiting Magdeburg.
London stole my heart. Ever since my uni days back in the early 2000s it’s been one of the places that I love to travel to and I do so at every opportunity. With London it is not so much about the touristy places that people from all over the world flock to when they visit that make me love this city so much, but it is more about the off beaten tracks and hidden corners.
There were times when I didn’t experience the urge to visit Mallorca, the biggest of the Balearic Islands. Despite reading and hearing that some parts of the island were indeed beautiful and worth seeing, Mallorca never made it on the bucket list of places to visit. This changed after a first short trip in 2011.
A while back I found a few old exposed rolls of film when I tidied up and emptied some old moving boxes. Neither did I know how old these really where nor did I know what was on them. Needless to say I was pretty stoked to see these photos of Sweden when I had the rolls of film developed. It must have been the first autumn shortly after I moved to Sweden. That basically means that these photos were taken back in 2005.
