Flying Jacob – Sweden’s Bacon/Banana Dish

Flying Jacob – Sweden’s Bacon/Banana Dish

I visited Sweden in January 2014, and I've wanted to go back ever since. One of the best parts of that trip was the food. I imagine the long, dark winters allow the Swedes ample time to create a wide assortment of tasty foods. The most interesting of the foods was the traditional dish Flying [...]

Swedish Girl Eating American Food

Sometimes Matilda and I get into trouble, and sometimes we laugh at each other's expense (like the time she did NOT help me get the bee out of my hair). She had been wanting to try cheese wiz because she saw Zac Efron eat it in Seventeen Again. It did not go as she thought [...]

When a Swede Visits the South

My best friend in the entire world, Matilda, is visiting me in August!! I've talked about her a lot on my blog.

I Lived.

I Lived.

Well, it's here!! One year living in Dublin, Ireland and traveling around Europe and Israel caught on video. I finished the editing and every clip is only two seconds long. Apologies in advance because, well, I am not a videographer. Haha! You'll see what I mean. But this video is very personal with close friends [...]

Things I’ve Learned While Traveling Europe

Things I’ve Learned While Traveling Europe

1.    Always have a backup plan. Things will go wrong. That's just bound to happen and there isn't much you can do to prepare for that.  Just try to go with the flow and mend your plans.  When you know a possibility exists where something could go wrong, have a backup plan in case of emergency.

That Time I Was the Only American at a Swedish Party

That Time I Was the Only American at a Swedish Party

7:30pm Cider. Walk in the door, greeted by fifteen really good-looking guys. Everyone is speaking Swedish. Hi, nice to meet you _____. (Never gonna remember that name.) Cider. Why does everyone have their shoes off? Should I have my shoes off? But I planned my shoes specifically…. Oh it’s rude to have them on? Oh.. [...]
