underbara du.
rachel, 24, beach bum, yoga teacher, island girl. i think... there is always two sides to every story (sometimes three or four, but that usually means there is tequila involved). as to life. it's not black or white, it's black and white and hopefully pink and sparkly inbetween... you can teach yoga and still love to party. meditate and ignore your spending problems. be vegan and eat too much chocolate. have a swedish passport and live in the caribbean. you can do anything, as long as its you.

the beat of your heart is the rhythm of your soul.
underbara du -
wonderful, you.

Our wedding photos (taken by the king of wedding photography @benkanephoto who took over 15,000 pics that weekend😱) are starting to come in - get ready for some wedding throwbacks! 


This was the first day of the weekend and our guests had just arrived from all over the world with @taxistockholm150000 (best VIP arrival ever!). We had a big archipelago style BBQ and danced all night… Dennis and I snuck off to the lake in the middle of dinner and got these dreamy shots. Look how handsome he is! My beautiful dress is from @marahoffman and the crown is @marianilsdotter ❤️



I miss our wedding peeps so much. Can we get married every year please??😍😊💃 #dennisandrachel #wedding #party #happy #love

I spend all of the money I make on traveling. I always have. And probably always will. 

I come from a family split in half - one part well off, the other one not. I know how to live on both ends. Growing up, we were only allowed to eat cereal at my moms house once a week because it was too expensive. We were always last to be picked up from school; she worked hard to keep us afloat. On the other end of the spectrum was my dad who also worked hard (he came from nothing and made a whole lot of something) but lived in another country. He’d swoop us up for school breaks that we spent in different parts of the world, always at luxury hotels. I know both sides and have learnt the value in standing on my own two legs as well as the blessing of being able to sit back and relax. I’m proud of both of my parents - they gave me the perfect upbringing by teaching me these contrasts. They gave me a zest for life and a deep longing to explore the world.


I worked like crazy on the weekends and sold the little scooter I had so I could afford to fly to Costa Rica for the first time. I stayed at hostels. Shook cockroaches off my sheets every night. Hitchhiked to get around. I spent a year waitressing after high school making $1 an hour. I slept in a dive shop because I couldn’t make rent. I’ve always done things this way; save up, make friends and work my way forward. Moving to Aruba was no different; I had absolutely nothing. No plan. No money. No regrets! I simply trust that life will always take me where I need to be.

I travel a little bit differently now because I can. You need money to stay at luxury hotels, yes. But you don’t need much to travel. You don’t need much to walk this earth. Explore the world! Even if it’s your own country. Your home town. Your backyard. Break your routine. Try something new. Go on an adventure. Open your eyes and see the abundance of beauty that is all around you. Instead of seeing everything that could go wrong, focus on all the marvelous possibilities that are out there. What’s the worst thing that could happen? You’ll be ok. Take the leap. Get out there and live!

Arrived late. Watched the Eiffel Tower glitter right above us in the middle of the night. It felt like we were the only one there (we weren’t). Magical, still. Bicycle taxi to Champs Élysées for dinner and hot tea at 2am. Long walk home holding hands through the empty streets of Paris. Slept little, up early. Croissants and coffee on a street corner, more Eiffel Tower, then headed to Pont de l’Archevêché and put a padlock on the bridge of love over the Seine. We wrote our initials on it and our wedding date. Kept the keys (good scrapbook material)! Walked down the river from there, went to the Louvre, saw the Notre Dame and then sat down to eat cheese and drink really, really good wine (Sancerre - always!) in St Germain. After that, Montmartre. My favorite. Cobblestone streets and tiny galleries and artists on every corner. Sacre-coeur and enchanted views of the city. Then, more French food, French music and another walk through this lovely, lovely place. It really is the city of love! 


The honeymoon ends but it really doesn’t. Sweden tonight and cuddles with the puppies. Actually… Our honeymoon continues, unofficially, forever☺️ #married #grateful #happy
