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

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

 

ON A BOAT IN AMSTERDAM.

I love to do all tourist attractions when I’m visiting a city for the first time. Got some recommendations that we had to go on a canal tour. Most people would say nah that’s cheesy but we said YEEES of course let’s do that. On our first day we we had a gap between two meetings so we decided to jump on this boat with Friendship Amsterdam. Had a few drinks on the boat and think we saw at least 50 of the 165 canals. Did you guys know that the total length of these canals is 50km haha?! Thats why Amsterdam is called  also known as “Venice of the North” x

KINGLY STREET LONDON.

Love to walk around in Soho – London. Usually it’s not to much people and they have a lot of smaller shops and cafés. Kingly Court is difficult to find if you don’t know what you are looking for – its basically just a door but when you enter it’s lika a small magical square. My favorite place is called Whyte & Brown – their menu is fantastic – don’t miss! x

LONDON MOMENTS.

Breakfast in bed – this fruit salad was so delicious – think I ordered at least 10 during our stay – mango, papaya and passionfruit. YUM!

First time I packed one day before departure – was so exited to leave this time. Norweigan to Gatwick and before noon we arrived at our hotel with this magical entrance.

Since me and Linnea don’t really like walking around in stores we decided to take two of our favorite shops and then do other things. Found these red boots on a store close to Bond-street tho – love them.

Stopped by a nails salon in Soho and changed nail color too a – dark burgundy.

Cocktails at STK with this gorgeous girl, yogurt ice-cream at Snog and 30 000 steps later I left London with a smile on my face – see you soon again x

 

PROPERTY HUNTING IN AMSTERDAM.

Today live from Holland, Amsterdam. Have a lot of training to do this year with some of my colleagues and my boss of course. Lots of travel on our schedule this year but a few luxury travel fairs to go and see. We have big plans for 2018 and I’m super excited as usual. Really happy we started of in Amsterdam since it’s a great city for both business and pleasure hehe 😉 Right now i’m sipping on a coffee and preparing a presentation before we’ll go out and meet one of our agencies x

LONDON BY NIGHT.

Let’s rewind to our Saturday night in London – Started with dinner and drinks at Aqua Kyoto with som friends. In the blink of an eye we danced around a few different clubs before we ended up at some kind of rave in Shoreditch – I absolutely love techno so this was a great decision haha. Finished our night not to late at some kind of fetish party – anything can happen in London 😉 x
