VACAY EDIT

Finally took myself the time to empty my gopro and make a little edit out of all the movies I filmed when my family was visiting. Even tho I've played around and had some arguments with my computer and the program for a couple of hours.. I'ts 4.30 here in Vegas and I need to get some sleep but I wanted to post this for you guys first. If you want to subscribe and like, much love&good night!♥

Vacay part 2, SF-LA

Okay, are you guys ready for part 2 now? After Yosemite, we drove up to San Fransisco. I only spent 1 night there before I flew down to SLO friday morning to spend a couple of extra days with my friends, what we did? We drank, and drank and then drank some more. My family came down to SLO on that monday and stayed one night and we went out to dinner at the new SLO Brew, I liked it a lot and I can't belive I lived in that beautiful little town, it's a second home for sure and I can't wait to go back already. 

After my parents stayed in SLO for one night it was time for us to drive down to LA. The first day we went to Universal studios:

I'm gonna try and put together a movie from all the clips that I filmed with my gopro aswell, but that'll have to wait. That's enough pictures from Universal. We also rented a Mustang and drove around in Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Santa Monica and Venice Beach and the last night we went out for dinner in Manhattan beach. I had so much fun with my family and I already miss them like crazy. 

It was a really hard an emotional goodbye once again. Just the fact that I have absolutely no clue of when I'm going to see them again makes everything so much harder. We separated on the shuttle to the airport and I could not hold back the tears when they got off. The worst part is missing out on my babybrother growing up, he has already gotten sooo big and it had only been 8 months. I 'm still not sure about my future or when I'm going back to Sweden, but I really do love it in the states and I got 3 different places I call home. Slo, Vegas and Sweden. 

Vacay part 1, Vegas - Yosemite

Prepare yourself for pictures in this post.. My whole vacay with my family is coming up but I have too much pictures so I have to make it in Part 1 and part 2.. Part 1 is starting with our 2 nights in Vegas, staying at Ballys where we were drinking and playing by the pool, went up the linq, walked the strip and watched the fountains, went out to dinner and went shopping at the outlets among other things.

After our two days in Vegas, we drove up to Mammoth lake and stayed one night there. I just have to say it was incredibly beautiful and I will for sure go snowboarding there one day. I have to, it was so pretty. 

After Mammoth lake, we drove to Yosemite;

Okay, this is all for now.. Vacay part 1, from Vegas to Yosemite. Part 2 from SF-LA coming up soon on le blog!

 

HAWAII - ♥

2 movies that I put together after I was in Hawaii. I was on the big island and lived in Kailua Kona. Pretty much all I did was to go snorkeling, I was a fish when I was there. All of my free time was spent in the water when I wasn't working. I went swimming with wild spinner dolphins, and they really are such beautiful creatures. I was truly amazed with it. Night snorkeling with manta rays definitely gave me a rush. They came so close that they touched you. To be honest I really was freaking out at first but then I started to laugh and smile like a freak when I actually realized how cool it was. Anyways, hope you liked the movies and remember I'm not a pro at editing or filming, I'm just playing around in gopro studios. Lots of love♥

Magic sands beach, I lived a 15 minute walk from this beautiful beach. It's called magic sands cause apparently there's only sand there a couple of months every year, I don't remember exactly what months but the other months there's no sand there at all. That's why it's called magic beach and it was sooo beautiful.

When I was snorkeling and swimming with the wild spinner dolphins, how beautiful?

Snorkeling at Captain Cooks monument, soooo pretty out there. Best snorkeling place I was at.

I got my nails done before the trip and as I was jumping off the boat on this snorkeling trip my finger got stuck on a rope and I ripped my nail off, including half of my real nail. It was a real pain and I got a little scared there for a while that I would attract sharks haha, but I didn't get eaten luckily!

Snorkeling and exploring at Four Seasons resort in Hulalai, so much turtles everywhere. They're sooo cool and chill haha. This place was truly beautiful but it was hard to get out in the water to snorkel because it's rocks everywhere and pretty much no sand at all in the water.

 

Up close with the manta rays, how cool?

This island still has an active volcano and that's why it's all black rocks everywhere, it's made out of dried lava. /View from the balcony of the house we stayed in.

Sunset at Magic Sands beach. Breathtaking.

ALASKA

 

 

Soooo, I've decided to start to write in english. Just because then my american friends can read it without having to use google translate every fucking time haha. This post is about my trip to Alaska which I did with my previous host fam. I got the chance to go snowboarding at Alyeska resort and I have to say it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! The slopes, the views, everything. Definitely one of the most beautiful places I've ever been and ever been snowboarding at. It gave me quite a workout, my legs were sooo sore after all the snowboarding since that was pretty much the only thing I did when I had free time. So glad I got that opportunity. We stayed about an hour outside of Anchorage in a house that we rented like a 20 minute walk from the resort and that's pretty much all I know about Alaska. We also went to a place to see bears, mooses (which I have walking on the street back home btw) and some other animals that had been rescued and taken care of at this place. So nice and so much fun. Now to the pics;
