Our Last Summer
Can you tell that I had just watch Mamma Mia 2 and have that ABBA fever? Also, I would like to blame Emma’s podcast ‘Sweden and ABBA‘ for it. While I have ‘Our Last Summer’ by ABBA playing in my head, I want to share the memories that I had with my fellow digital ambassadors and […]
Are Swedes Heliophiles?
A heliophile is defined as ‘Any organism that is attracted to large amounts of sunlight’. It’s no sunrise that Swedes love the sun. For most part of the year, the weather is well…tolerable. But Summer is here and this post is dedicated to the ultimate summer sun worshiper.

Smögen in the Summer
If Anita went to the Gotland island this summer, I would like to take your attention back to a nice town on the west coast (which Anita went earlier in the spring). I ship the west coast as a summer destination. Last year, I went to Mollösund, located in the Västra Götaland County. This summer, I accidentally […]
Part Time Jobs: My Experience

So, what’s the part time job situation like […]
Your Swe-Desi Seafarer Signing off :)
“Passion and ambition are a weird duo. It makes you go on adventures you’d never imagine you’d be on. It makes you overcome your fears, it makes you want to achieve more, to live more, to be more.” 2 years ago, a passion to learn environmental engineering and sustainability from one of the top universities […]
