What to pack

  • Water bottle – since tap water is extremely safe in Sweden, I never travel without my Dopper water bottle. I like the insulated ones: they keep my drinks cool in summer and hot in winter.
  • Power bank – I always carry a power bank. My mobile phone is everything: navigator, camera, travel guide,… I simply don’t want to end up with a dead battery.

Camping essentials

  • I love the products of Helinox. Light but sturdy. Not cheap but worth every penny.
  • What to pack when camping in summer: Djungelolja. It’s the local mosquito repellent and really the best there is!
