Smygehuk, Sweden

Smygehuk is a small village on the southernmost tip of Sweden. The village stretches along the coast and seems to thrive in the summer months of tourism. It’s very Swedish. And very charming. The harbour is petite and picturesque and the beaches are just perfect for a swim. We had dinner at the harbour at the local fishmonger’s who’s also running a small fish cafe. Eating outside as the sun sank and the gulls flew over our heads on a warm, silent, Swedish summer evening. It was extremely idyllic. I imagine this is what Americans think of when they book their holidays in cute little Scandinavia. We walked through a grass field in the last rays of sunshine and I stopped to take this photo towards the hostel we stayed at. The hostel is in a classic southern Swedish wooden style and the room was small but cute, decorated with pictures of the sea, which we could both hear and smell through the open windows. And in case we wanted an even better view, we could just climb the local lighthouse, which conveniently stands on the hostel-land.

This is a bunker we found in Smygehuk on the southernmost point of Sweden.
I was unable to find any information about it online but I believe it was build during WWII or The Cold War to protect Sweden from attacks via the sea.
The tracks in the floor were the base of a canon that could turn and shoot at anyone attacking from the sea.
The front of the bunker had a wide open view, probably the best in town to be honest.
These days the bunker seems to serve as a hangout for the young people in the village of Smygehuk, or maybe as a sleeping spot for someone in need of shelter.

If you happen to know more about this place please tell me, I am very interested.

Hamad International Airport

From my trip back to Europe.I only spend a short while in Hamad International Airport in Qatar, but it was a very interesting experience.Especially the ten seconds it took me to walk from the terminal bus to the plane. I think that is the warmest temperature I’ve experienced outside. And all around the airport there was desert, which I think you can kinda feel in this photo.

Shot this on my way back to Europe from Australia, didn’t get around to editing it until now. But I’m really glad I stalled cus in the meantime I got an amazing app for editing in black and white, which allowed me to create this look. I am actually really proud of it.

Here’s the video from my trip to New South Wales. Took me a while to finish editing and to find music that I liked, and that I could use without being sued by a bunch of scary men in suits. Enjoy.
