Stockholm, Sweden- Summer 2015 [One Really, Really, Really Cool Video!]

Stockholm, Sweden- Summer 2015 [One Really, Really, Really Cool Video!]


So, we’ve loved Stockholm, Sweden- more than we imagined. You see, we’re usually not the ‘go-go-go-do-do-do’ sort of tourists. We’ve always looked at those who spend ten days on a powerhouse vacation and come home exhausted as missing out on the true value of travel. We’ve always said we travel vertically or “finger paint” living with the locals and staying for looooong periods of time in one place to create community (perpetually barefoot) and not horizontally or “water color” – where you swoop in, shoot some pictures, and check it off your to-do list. Vertically or “finger painting” for us, include living in Cambodia for 8 months, India for 6 months, in Malaysia for 3 1/2 months and in the Philippines for 2 1/2 months. In all of those places except for in Malaysia, we lived in the same house for the vast majority of our home life there. That’s finger painting for us- getting down and dirty, no lines, no rules, just fully throwing ourselves into the concept of home and ‘what would it be like if I were a local in this indigenous village in the jungles of Ecuador‘ and then we find out. And yet, we had four and a half day in Stockholm and knew that we wanted to take advantage of every inch of joy the third cleaniest capital in Europe had to offer us.

Thank You’s

Thanks to Emilia at the , The 48Hr Stockholm Card, and The Stockholm Street Festival  we pushed it as much as we only did when we got four days fully sponsored at Singapore’s Sentosa Island and didn’t want to miss a day of Universal Studios, the MegaZip Adventure, IFly, and a billion others gifts graciously offered to us. Thank you to Tarek for moving out of his home and giving it to us for those four nights, for the breakfast food he filled the fridge with, and for going out of his way in every imaginable and unimaginable way to make us feel loved, welcomed, and wanted. And.. thank you for Tallink Silja International for creating that next adventure- (our first cruise ever!) from all-awesome Stockholm to Riga, Latvia on the Isabelle. (More about our cruises later)

Why Traveling with my Family Again Scares the Shit Out of Me- Why Not to Family World Travel Only the Rich Can Afford Long-Term Family Travel- The Day Before We Again Become The Nomadic Family


——————————– WANNA HELP: SHARE!!!!!!!!!

We’d love to connect to you on TwitterFacebookYouTube.


The Nomadic Family  of five spent three and a half years settling into small communities in 16 countries world-wide. Now, they are acclimating back into life in Northern Israel and the story continues. Gabi lived alone in India for 3 months this winter, Kobi is going backpacking for 2 months alone this Spring, and the family will spend this summer in Sweden, Latvia, Estonia, and Finland. Follow their adventures as they share their emotional journey, their spiritual growth; their falling apart and coming back together, the real ups and downs, the sticky, painful, colorful, and magical moments of life on the road and back home.


Insanely unorthodox, embarrassingly honest, and on her path towards spiritual awareness, Gabi Klaf blogs about her family’s ups and downs in their now third year of non-stop budget world travel. This family of five has lived with an indigenous tribe in the jungles of Ecuador, hitchhiked throughout the world, danced with drunk Vietnamese at weddings, and hiked the entire Annapurna Circuit trek with a documentary film crew in tow. Gabi writes about the untold sides of family travel life, those moments that take your breath away, adventures and mishaps while globetrotting, and how bits of her soul remain in this small town and off the side of that river. She is a guitar-stumming, energy-healing, ADHD wind-loving scaredy cat. Hugely romantic, tantalizingly sweet, and hysterically funny, Gabi Klaf represents a rare Rubik’s Cube of family world adventure.
We’re out doing crazy stuff and making our dreams come true, every single one of them, and a few more that sort of flew into our mouths while we were smiling into the wind.
