Wonderland

Hey my dear friends! 🙂  This weekend me and my friends went on a quick trip to the Wonderland or in other words Finland. I have expressed a lot of times how I feel every time I am there, so I thought I should link a special post of mine that I wrote a while back, so that you can have a taste of what I am talking about.

This time was extra special because it is this time of the year again, the Christmas time. The town was more beautiful than ever. The Christmas lights, the beautiful window displays and the cozy atmosphere made me feel like I was thirteen years old and I was finally living in my own dream. I have been dreaming about being in Finland on winter and Christmas time since I was a little kid.

These are the moments that I captured on my camera from downtown. 🙂 I hope you like them as much as I do and enjoy them like I did when I took them.

Have a great night / day my friends, take care and be kind to one another. 🙂

Scandinavian Dreams

Finland seems to be my second home lately. I think I love this country as much as I love Sweden. Me and my friends spent  the last weekend in Helsinki and we had an amazing time. The weather could not be any better and the city was dressed in its very best. From my experience in life in general in my 24 years, I believe that there is nothing better than spending time with your friends, with good music in a beautiful place. This is what we experienced the last couple of days.

There are no huge differences between Sweden and Finland in my opinion, but sometimes I feel that something pulls me back there all the time. That’s probably why I have been there 3 times in the last 7 months. Or probably why it is so easy to go there, just an one-hour flight. My phone got shut down as we landed and so my camera had to do all the dirty work. Some of the pics are taken with i Phone 6 as well . 🙂

Here is what I captured from Helsinki on a beautiful and sweet summer weekend. Whatever you do and wherever you go, have a great week friends with lots of music! 🙂 ❤

Finland

The last couple of days me and my friends took an amazing trip till Finland. We had such an amazing time. The hotel was perfect and the city was even more perfect. I unfortunately couldn’t stay longer because of my school schedule but even these two days have been a blast. I hope I get the chance to go back again! Here’s what I have from our hotel and from Helsinki. 🙂

2014 In Pictures

2014 has been one for the most blessed years for me. I have managed to do so many stuff, made so many new friends, traveled quite a lot and experienced music more than ever. I shot and basically been to so many shows that I can actually say that have been life-changing. Thirty Seconds to Mars, Daughtry, Backstreet Boys, Gavin Degraw, H.E.A.T , Reckless Love, T.N.T , Europe, Aerosmith, GAGA, Rival Sons, Twin Atlantic, OUTLOUD, Stockholm Rocks, Väsby Rock Festival, Rockbåten 2014, are some of the artists and festivals I experienced live. Moments like that are really priceless. ❤ I really hope and wish that 2015 includes way more music and live shows, blessings and health. 🙂

Have a great happy new year my dear friends, take care and be careful these days.

All love from cold Sweden.

❤ 🙂

H.E.A.T Live @ Rockbåten

So I just wanna devote this post to this band with all my love and loyalty, because only God and them know how much I need their music every day. I mostly went to this cruise because I wanted to see them play live again. Their energy, their passion, their focus, their spirit, their interactions, their attitude, their hyperactivity and smiles are a couple things that I rarely maybe never have noticed in an artist or a band at this high level. I had the chance to stand in front of the stage throughout the whole show and I wanna thank so much SWEDEN ROCK for letting me do this, simply because it let me enjoy the whole show with focusing only on the band and the music without any distractions. It felt like me and the band were one at this moment. I cannot really explain it in words, I can just say that I can relate to their music  almost 100 % and just listen to it and close my eyes and for these 3 minutes that a song lasts, I am in my own reality, I can dream, and forget about my troubles, fears and disappointments in life kinda like ” Sometimes you’re a free bird ,high in the sky, sometimes it’s a shady world, and all you do is cry” .

I have been in so many shows this past year and checked out so many bands, both swedish and also international and I think I can tell now the difference between so called “artists ” who make music just for pussy and drugs and between artists who take their work way too professionally and write music that is full of meaning and can change people’s lives. I can easily say without a shadow of a doubt that H.E.A.T belong in the second category. When I listen to music like that, it kinda reminds me that there is still hope and passion in the music business and there are still people who believe, breathe and live for the music. Cuz in my opinion, music is the strongest drug on the planet. Music is everything in life and H.E.A.T are there to prove it.

Here’s a couple of shots from last night, I hope you enjoy! 🙂 ❤

Rockbåten Day 2

Yesterday was the second and last day of the Rockboat. I will never get over this weekend really, it was one of the best moments in my life. There was so much music, so much energy, so much people having fun and just letting loose and enjoy the moment and the parties. I really loved it, the action, the stamina, the rock shows. It was amazing. Last night H.E.A.T performed too, for whom I will make a separate post because the pics are too many! ❤️ I hope moments like that will come again soon and experience again so much music and fun in just 36 hours!
Here’s a couple of pics in general from yesterday while we were in Helsinki and on our way back! 😄
