I texted my mom and dad late Friday afternoon about them coming to visit me and they did. We spent a great evening together friday and Saturday we went shopping and to visit the grandparents.
Today I woke up before 7AM to get ready for a fun filled day in the swedish capital, Stockholm. A mere 1 h and 20 minutes later Dina and I were arriving at the station.
After a lunch meeting we went to a APU Network association dinner celebrating the Bosnian Independence Day. Because Dina is traveling tomorrow and I have a week full of meetings we had to get on a train back home at 7.30. The evening was a great success though! We got to meet some very successful and interesting people. Aida Hadžialić being on of them. She is a Swedish politician and the Minister of Education. At 28 she is the youngest minister Swedish history and she just happenes to be Bosnian aswell.
Hello to all the new readers and followers. And welcome!
But, as some of you might know, I was given a secret trip as a birthday present. That trip is now only a week away. Until now I’ve been sure it was either London or Sarajevo, leaning more towards Sarajevo but now I’m not so sure anymore. All my family and friends are keeping quiet and not saying anything. Secretly I’m hoping it might be a destination I haven’t visited before, like Dublin or Marseille.
I guess I’ll just have to wait…
A picture of my brother-in-law and I from last summer. I invited myself to his 30th birthday surprise trip to London that my sister organized. Oh, maybe he’s coming too…
I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend. I know I did. This weekend was my very talked about birthday party, the big one. I know I’ve a few smaller get together’s. It was an awesome party and all my faves were there.
I got some amazing things that I’m very very thankful for and I’ll show you all what it is, probably in a YouTube video over on my channel.
But the coolest gift is a trip! I’m going somewhere in the middle of February with my sister. The gift is from her, Ami and Dina, but there is a catch. I have no idea where. I just got instructions on what to pack and where to be at a certain time. That is all. I hate surprises so this is literally killing me. I hate the wait and the suspense. I even offered to pay people off for them to tell me. But nobody would. I guess I’ll just have to wait and see…
Ok, so I just got an email to go to Birmingham for something really fun. Unfortunately I can’t go as the event is happening at the end of November and I’m already booked that weekend. Typical! Although I love being busy, because it keeps me sane I don’t like the fact that I rarely can go away as a spur of the moment kind of thing.
Speaking of England, Boohoo has just announced a collection with Nadia Aboulhosn dropping in March, I’m super excited about that.
So, www.worldofwanderlust.com has listed their Top 15 travel destinations of 2015 and my beautiful Bosnia is at number one. I’m not the least bit surprised. This is what they had to say;
A picture tells a thousand words… and Bosnia & Herzegovina is one of the most picturesque countries off the beaten path. Fortunately it is still flying very much under the radar – making now the perfect time to visit (but be sure to be quick!).
Second day at work and let me tell you, I feel like I’m already getting back in the swing of things. Yesterday I was here around 7.30AM and today even earlier than that. As of right now, everything is going well. But, I do miss being on vacation…
This picture right here is my fave from London, for many different reasons. It was taken after a few hours i Hyde Park drinking wine. It took forever to get a decent picture and in the midst of it all we blocked a garbage truck from driving. This picture is one of those pictures that comes with a story…and brings back memories. I think I’ll always remember this trip to London because of this picture.
Before I show you more pictures from London and what I got I wanna tell you about this amazing person that I know. Her name is Stephanie and I first met her a little over three years ago. She’s from Australia but came to visit my hometown in Sweden. We have a friend in common. As soon as we met we hit it off straight away. I remember how I loved the fact that she was so free-spirited. She was silly too and that’s something I love about a person, we don’t always have to take ourselves super serious. Stephanie is simply amazing and I’m not the only one that thinks that. I finally had the chance to meet up with her this weekend in London where she lives now and let me tell you, it was a blast. We met up Sunday for lunch at Prezzo, which might just be my favorite new restaurant. After that we went shopping and ended up in Hyde Park with a few bottles of wine. Later that night we went to see, not so Big Ben and the London Eye, then walked along the Themse before we jumped on a bus out to Battersea and ended up at Steph’s place. There she showed me some of her paintings, and I loved every single one of them.
While shopping we also stopped by The Kooples store to look at the billboard in the store and also pick up the magazine. Steph is one of the models in it!!!
I’ve had the best time in London with great people. I traveled with my sister and her boyfriend. There I caught up with my bff Ivana and also hung out with a friend I haven’t seen in three years, Stephanie.
More on my trip later and also a haul on everything I got!
