Although I´ve been living in Sweden since 2007 (and could have explored the rest of the country a bit more), I am one of those who have been limited to my "home city" unfortunately. In the future though, I hope to spend a night in the famous Ice Hotel (who wouldn't) located in the village of Jukkasjärvi, as well as visit the Abisko National Park which is an ideal place to experience the midnight sun in the summer and the Aurora Borealis in the winter. For those traveling to Stockholm, here are some of my travel tips.

Top Attractions in Australia

Me and a wallaby during my first visit to Australia in 2008

In 2008, I traveled to Australia for the first time together with Mike visiting Sydney, Cairns and Brisbane. We had the "experience of a lifetime" as we gazed at the beauty of the Sydney Opera House for the first time, visit Fraser Island and Brisbane, and spent a few nights sailing on the Whitsunday Islands/Great Barrier Reef among others. Five years later, we were back to Australia and spent a day in Perth and Sydney as part of our Fiji trip. Earlier this year, I was back to Sydney where I joined the Singelresor group before flying back to Europe 😍 I still have a lot to see in this beautiful country including Ayers Rock/Uluru and Melbourne so I really hope to be back soon. Here are some of the places I've been to during my visits to Australia, the "Land Down Under" 🐨🐊

Oryx Rotana Hotel, Doha

Having a long lay-over in Doha (and with no earlier flights to Helsinki) I was eligible for the STPC program of Qatar Airways where I got a complimentary night at the Oryx Rotana Hotel plus a generous meal voucher. Here's a photo review of the hotel.
