MADRID VIEWS.

To find a great view spot is always key when you’re visiting a new city. Roof-top bars or a great sundeck is crucial to kick-start a weekend trip. I loved ME Madrid Reina Victoria and Hotel Urban when I was younger – here you can find really good cocktails and the location for both of them are great. A new favorite is Room Mate Óscar Hotel also worth trying.

This time we stayed at Gran Viá Apartments – it’ s strategically situated in the centre of Madrid, right on Gran Vía – a few steps away from the main cultural and financial points of the city. Here you can see the view – really wish we had more time to spend on that terrass x

MADRID GUIDE BY CLARA.

One of my favorite cities in Europe is definitely Madrid – so much to do and you usually don’t bump in to any swedes haha. They have restaurants around every corner and it’s sunny almost every day – how doesn’t like that? I lived there all year 2012 and still have really good friends dancing around this beautiful city. Will provide you with some essential information on the best things to see and do in the city.

Will start with where to stay – one of my favorite hotels is Only YOU Boutique Hotel located on Calle del Barquillo. The beautiful building is enhanced by Lázaro Rosa Violán’s interior design, giving the hotel a transgressive feel with colonial touches. Most importantly – they also have one of my top breakfast places door to door witch is Celicioso. The menu is insane but don’t miss their pancakes or selection of colorful juices.

The Eiffel Tower.

Some people think it’s difficult to have time for exercise when you’re traveling a lot. I always try to start my mornings with a loooong walk. In Paris we woke up super early everyday to have time to enjoy the sunny weather before work. How beautiful is The Eiffel Tower? Could definitely live in Paris xx

ibiza closing.

Heard so many mixed feeling about Ibiza but have to say that I loved it – techno, sunshine and long nights. One key ingredient why I loved this place this place was the group of people I was traveling with – my favorite girls. Don’t miss Sundays at Pacha with Solomun, DC10 or Passion Café. Hope to see you next summer Ibiza xx

ARUBA’S BEST BEACH.

There are many best beaches in Aruba HAHA. This island is created for beach lovers, sun worshippers, water sporters and every other fish in the sea. I have to say tho that Eagle Beach was my favorite one – the beach was super long and whiter than everything you ever seen. I still have so many beautiful pictures to show you from my latest travels BUT still waiting for my new Iphone – that was suppost to be delivered today but just got a call from them that it will be here tomorrow morning – YEY! Will also leave Stockholm on Wednesday for some new adventures xx

RALPH’S – PARIS.

Ralph’s – located on Boulevard Saint-Germain is always a good idea. Looked at an apartment in that area so we decided to stop for cookies and cocktails. They had a new cocktail for the season with some Whispering angel, Cointreau, Veuve Clicquot and sparkling-water – YUM! Tasted like a modern Aperol Spritz x

 

NOWHERE WITHOUT MY ACAIBOWL.

I love running on the beach – always trying to start my days with some exercise. Let the waves hit your feet and the sand be your seat. Found the most amazing restaurant on the beach – Eduardo’s Beach Shack. Here you can find everything from fruity bowls to black charcoal shots x 

HELLO ARUBA.

Always wanted to see the all islands in the Caribbean – and last week a lot at preview. Allow me to impart some of my newfound wisdom from the beautiful island – Aruba. Aruba’s pristine, white-sand beaches and calm turquoise waters are unlike any others. Aruba is at the forefront of the energy revolution. Ten large windmills line the rugged eastern coast. Within 10 years, 100% of the island’s energy will come from renewable sources. Aruba, representing more than 90 different nationalities. Dutch and Papiamento are Aruba’s official languages​​, but most Arubans speak at least four languages​​, including English, Spanish and Portuguese. So much to learn and see about this magical island – stay tuned x

WHERE TO STAY IN AMSTERDAM.

Last time I was here we rented one of the coolest apartments I ever stayed in. That one we founded on Airbnb and really recommend everyone just to go in and see all the apartments they have in Amsterdam – so many unique condos – I always do that just for fun to get some inspiration. This time we stayed at Hotel Sofitel Legend the Grand Amsterdam. For us location is everything so this was perfect – close to all parts of the city and a beautiful traditional hotel. They had green shots and almond pancakes for breakfast – only that 😉 x
