What do I blog about?
It's hard to put your blog in a specific genre. I like adventures, hiking, travel and photography but those things are far from my real life, which includes a ton of other things. For instance, I am a Swede living in USA, I am a PhD student, I am a wife, I am a green card holder, I just moved to a larger city after living in a small town in the middle of nowhere (Hello running water, toilet inside, warm long baths), I am a cat lover and I have lived in a cabin without running water for about 6 years of my life. I lived in Alaska for 7 years (I know a lifetime?, Cabin Life), I now live in Madison, Wisconsin. I visit Montana and Yellowstone at least once a year and both W and I are secretly (ok maybe not that secretly but it sounded pretty cool to say that..) dreaming about moving to Montana when all the hardcore sciency base stuff are done (aka PhDs and Post-docs...in that order).

Some of these different categories below will of course overlap, but it's a way for you to specifically find blogposts about those thing you might be the most interested about. For instance, blogposts including large mountains will not be found in the Wisconsin category, but in basically all other ones. Lifestyle posts can be found under both Alaska and Wisconsin category etc. I hope you'll enjoy my website, which also includes some galleries and photography options you can find in the upper site menu. Enjoy!
7 years in Alaska and a ton of memories and experiences have filled my backpack. Here is my life in Alaska including all adventures and misadventures I once had.
I have been traveling through other places than Wisconsin, Yellowstone and Alaska of course. Here you can find some of those posts. I will probably keep traveling forever and ever. I am the traveling kind, so check back as this category keeps filling up.
Out and about
If you are only interested in reading about my adventures, regardless of where I did them this collection has them organized by season.
New state new life? Of course my backpack is not full yet. There are more memories to be created and more experiences to get. Madison is growing on me, would you like it?
I had a bit of a lack of inspiration with my blogging, and this combined with the fact that I love taking pictures and go for small hikes gave room for this new theme on my blog. *Hint: It's all about adventures, big and small.
W grew up just outside Yellowstone in a town called Bozeman, MT. We travel there on a regular basis and adventure out into Yellowstone everytime we go there. W also does his fieldwork there, so that kind of increases the chances for me to see the park.
This is also connected to my lack of blogging I had a while back. It is combined with the fact that I left part of my heart in Alaska and just can't stop talking about it, I know so ridiculous. I also have tons of pictures I never had time to share from Alaska but also other places in the world. It's a never ending story, to balance life and all. However, don't be surprised if you find posts about other parts of the world, memories from the past.
