Dear reader Welcome! I’m so happy you found my blog and hope you both enjoy and have good use of its content. I moved as an expat to New York in 2005 from Stockholm, Sweden. But like many before me, I was bitten by the New York bug already as a child!
Law is a highly national discipline making an international career hard. I chose career paths carefully and worked really hard for my New York dream to come through. In 2005 I succeeded, as EY sent me over as a lawyer to be Manager of the popular European Desk. I still remember the joy and feeling! My very first apartment, was on 60th Street right by Time Warner Center. I fell in love with the neighborhood, so much so that I never left and oh – how I fell even deeper in love with this amazing life changing city!
My ever evolving love and passion for New York is only deepening and my interest in the city is next to none! I still discover and visit every corner every chance I get. I frequent the city’s many celebrated restaurants, museums, bars, parks and events (the list is as infinite as the city itself!) of which you can benefit in the guide’s section!
I have since moved a bit uptown by Central Park close to Columbus Circle. I walk nearly every day in the park which I love! I’ve also found love, married my husband and we have two wonderful kids together. Harry who is now 8 and Julia 7, how time flies! As a result, we’ve discovered new fun sides to the city we love as a family. Be sure follow the kids guides if you are looking to visit New York with kids! 👫❤️ Also, we are serious foodies, you will find a lot of posts in food & drink! 🥘🥂
So why did I start a blog? If only I had a penny for every time someone told me to start one..! I’m a published author in Sweden (professional law literature) so writing does come naturally. However it really started the other way around on Facebook and Instagram. I’ve built up thousands of followers through the years to our many adventures. The blog is really an extension and development from that. Of course, my ever curious need to discover all things new and old in New York plays a big part too!
Lastly there is a section regarding politics and some posts here and there in Swedish. Why? This is a service to Swedes who have interest and questions about the US political scene, news and developments. I also frequently get asked where to go and which restaurants I recommend! Since the kids started school, I spend an equal amount of time in Sweden too, be sure to check out the travel section! 🇸🇪
I hope you enjoy my blog and tag along for our adventures! Please subscribe to my blog and follow me on Instagram. Don’t be afraid to comment and ask questions, I will try to answer as soon as I can. Thank you again for being a valued reader ❤️ and lets get to it!
