It’s not perfect, it’s not for all, and it’s not exactly super fashionable, but it’s my own “haute couture”- and my very own first handmade garment, so I’m a lil’ bit proud today.

This week I and my fluffy puppy have discovered several nice lakes for scenic walks in beautiful autumn colours, and Agnsjön is one of them. On the map I can see that the gravel road we followed a bit goes all the way around the lake, so I’m sure it also will become a good biking and running […]

Finnish Lapphund puppy

Finally, after years of evaluating, longing and waiting, I got our new family member home last week after travelling 2000 km during 3 days. I absolutely adore this lil’ girl’s wonderful temper – she is calm and composed when introduced to new and unexpected situations (except with the cats ..ho..ho..action!), alternated with a frisky and playful mood.. and […]

Sweden: Wildlife tracking excursion in Umeå

We borrowed old-fashioned wooden skis from the swedish military – yes, like the one’s I remember using in my childhood Norway – but skis that are still going strong, especially in undulating terrain, and the only needed ski wax is a simple and more environment-friendly candle, not the toxic ski wax some are using today.

Foxy rävar

Inför senaste helgen packade jag expeditionssäcken (jo jag lyckades faktiskt fylla upp hela på 90 l) och drog iväg norrut med Järvsö som slutdestination. Sist jag var här för några år sedan hyrde jag en mysig fäbod och cyklade downhill i Bergcykelparken  – men nu hade jag lite annat i tankarna. Ca 1 km in […]

Tidningsartikel om voluntära snöleopard-expeditionen

Jag önskar se många fler där ute på meningsfulla och lärorika äventyr som detta – själv gjorde jag detta i samarbete med non-profit organisationen Biosphere Expeditions som fokuserar på bevarande av vilda djur & natur (och som mottagit en rad utmärkelser, bl a från National Geographic, för sina expeditioner), men det finns många andra ideella organisationer där ute som erbjuder liknande… allt efter vad just du brinner för!
