Sant Pau modernist site in Barcelona

Former hospital, the modernist site of Sant Pau was reopened after renovation in 2014, for visits, guided tours, expositions and history archives. Though I’m constantly traveling around the globe, I still have a lot to explore of my home country and Barcelona. The largest modernist site in Europe, many times I have passed by the site and thought “next time”. It was the right time to assist at the Travel Bloggers Meeting event held at Sant Pau, and explore the modernist site.

Andorra Travel Bloggers Meeting

It’s been more than a year since Hype in Tokyo was born, or renewed to become the travel blog that is is now, but it wasn’t until recently that I joined the travel blogging community as it is. That came to an end in Andorra, at the Travel Bloggers Meeting. Sharing the good times and the struggle with dozens of people about being a travel blogger, was one of the best parts at the Travel Bloggers Meeting. Using the social media and the #TBMAndorra as a storyteller of the event, felt that we were a one big family. Let me share my side of the story and invite you to the little country in the Pyrenees, Andorra, through the three days of the event.

Day in Djurgården, visiting Skansen and more

One of my favourite things to do while in Stockholm was to walk around the city. From the central station to the old town, Gamla Stan is a bit more than 20 minute walk. A bit further there’s Djurgården, one of the islands of the Stockholm archipelago, and turned out to be my favourite to visit. Green and open spaces, fresh air next to the water, and many museums to visit. This article is about the places I’ve visited on my days in Stockholm. The vasa museum, Skansen, and Gröna Lund.

Impressions from Stockholm and the old town, Gamla Stan

Less than a month ago I went on a trip to Stockholm, to do research for my team’s master degree project. My part to do, learn and search legends of vikings. I’ll write about my findings on future posts. For now, I’ll like to share my first impression of Stockholm, as it was the first time I’ve visited it.
