TORONTO | THE COMMUNIST’S DAUGHTER, BAR RAVAL & TED’S COLLISION

Vintage-Shops-TorontoOn out third day visiting Daniel’s hometown Toronto we checked out some vintage shops and cafes. Most of all we went full on holiday mode and did NOTHING, just strolled. Strolling might be the most exotic thing to do, the ultimate holiday activity. The-Communist-Daughter,-TorontoThen Steven met up with us and brought us to the Communist’s Daughter. A tiny place that looks like a typical American bar in films, with lumber jacks on bar stools, a grilled cheese frying on the counter and odd things taped to the walls. We raved on about the Game of Thrones finale, my wanting to write books but being scared about the literary elite and Steven moving to London starting his own barber shop. TorontoAt dusk we walked the wide streets of Toronto.Bar-Raval-Patio-TorontoOver to our dinner spot, the Bar Raval, a newly opened tapas bar but hell of a lot fancier and nicer. Steven’s girlfriend is a sommelier there so it was a given to go try it out.Bar-Raval-Tapas-Restaurant-TorontoThe place has a stunning Gaudi-esque styled decor, plays good music and despite being a monday it was full. Apparently a German carpenter was flown in to work solely on the wooden panels for six months!Bar-Raval-Tapas-Restaurant-Toronto(gif) Whilst more of Daniel’s friends dropped in we claimed a table and Steven started ordering us a heap of things.Oyster-Bar-Raval-TorontoThere were oysters and egg sandwiches, pimientos and chorizo, $24 cocktails and cava etc etc. The best freaking food I have had, maybe ever. I was shocked! After having glanced over at the menu and nearly choked when realising the prices (definitely worth it but harsh on a student), I thought fuck it, YOLO, I will TREAT MYSELF x 1000.Bar-Raval-in-TorontoSo I did, and had a swell time. Luckily, we got hooked up with some great deals though and I didn’t have to starve for the rest of the trip. :))) Bar Raval was the best culinary experience during the whole North American trip, hands down, and when I’m famous and rich in a years time I’ll come back and pay full price.Ted's-Collision-TorontoThe night ended at Ted’s Collision with large beers and weird stories on their back patio. Joel and Ivan ended up driving us all the way up to North York so we wouldn’t have to spend an hour getting home. We blasted this and other guilty pleasures all the way driving on the empty roads. <3 North America you weird weird place, I don’t know what to make of you but I like you.

TORONTO | SAM JAMES COFFEE BAR

Most of the days in Toronto we spent recuperating after the week long adventure in New York. I’m telling you, even though I’m five years younger, bar nights with those twins wears me out haha. We had late mornings in Daniel’s parents’ house, eating scrambled eggs straight out of the pan, petting their obese cat Lucy (<3) and driving just a few blocks to pick up some milk, my gazing at Daniel like a 16 year old about to lose her virginity. There is something insanely hot with men driving you around, don’t you think?

On a few occasions we made it out though.

Sam-James-Coffee-Bar,-Toronto-CanadaOne of them was to visit Sam James Coffee Bar. A skater who the twins know opened this beautiful spot to sell gorgeous coffee to all the punks of the city.Sam-James-Coffee-Bar,-TorontoIt’s all tall ceilings, white walls and concrete. I wanted to kick all hipster dudes out of there and claim it as my private office space.Daniel-at-Sam-James-Coffee-Bar,-TorontoDaniel-Pilaprat,-Toronto-2015<3 <3Sam-James-Coffee-Bar-TorontoDaniel-at-Sam-James-Coffee-Bar-in-TorontoInstead we sat down on the stoop with Daniel’s friend, the very talented artist Virgil Baruchel. Do you remember when we visited him at his insane art studio? He told us about his exhibition at XXXX and about him showing his first drawings to Daniel back when they were riding the bus to their highschool and Daniel said that he should become an artist. Linn-Wiberg-at-Sam-James-Coffee-Bar-in-TorontoDaniel is practising using my camera so I can be seen a bit more here haha. ”I want to help you become a super successful blogger!”Linn-Wiberg-in-Toronto-2015He’s doing pretty well I’d say.Sam-James-Coffee-Bar-Toronto-CanadaHanging out on a stoop makes one feel like the cool kidz in high school, which I never got to do! So if you were an uncool kid, go feel badass. Honestly the most gorgeous cafe I’ve been to (along with the AP Cafe in Bushwick, NYC)! Does anybody know of a similar one in London or Stockholm?

BACK IN LONDON + AN ARTICLE + A CITY GUIDE

Warehouse-Flat-in-LondonI’m back in London again to spend my last two weeks of my summer break in my favourite city with D and my friends. I will try and work as much as I can, like putting together my portfolio, but it’s not too bad since Daniel’s flat is a warehouse dream.Flat-in-LondonI have for the first time in ages managed to write something! There is a story growing within me that I for the first time feel could become something. It’s exciting and terrifying because I know when I go back to Hyper there won’t be any time for writing. I honestly feel like I’ve already graduated and am reluctant to going back at all. But that’s what summers do with you I guess.Filled-Bell-PeppersI arrived last night, all teary and emotionally drained after having said farewell to my family who are moving back to Kenya. And Daniel was waiting with the most delicious meal! Stuffed peppers and Coronas plus oven baked portobello mushrooms with blue cheese. He’s a star. Then we obviously spent the rest of the night in bed, as we haven’t seen each other for over a week. ^^

Also note the salt and pepper grinders that Daniel’s flatmate stole when drunk and luckily didn’t get caught, because they turned out to be silver.Paperlight-MagazineWhen I was in Stockholm I realised that I have forgotten to tell you about Paper Light Magazine and the article I wrote for them.Paperlight-MagThis is how my babe of a friend Frida Vega who’s the founder describes it:

Paper Light is about seeing. About photography. Especially about providing a larger canvas to creators and images we may otherwise only see in a smaller format on our phones. In this issue we have taken it a step further, exploring photos shot with smartphones, and talking to the people behind them.” Contributors-PaperlightYou can find me and tons of other babes doing cool stuff in there. Linn-Wiberg-for-Paperlight-MagazineLike the interview I did with antique dealer and interior design enthusiast Cristian Brandhild Lind.PaperlightHere you can order your copy for 115SEK and they ship all over the world!

Alright, hold on fucking tight guys! We finish off with what you’ve been asking for since 2011. I’ve made a London City Guide for Metro! My best restaurants, cafes, hideouts etc. It’s in Swedish for now but I promise to post a translated version on here soon.

A NIGHT AT ONE OF THE BEST RESTAURANT IN TORONTO

You all know how close Daniel and I were to missing our flight up to Toronto after this wet night. I sat in the taxi, pretty relaxed as I tend to lose stuff, miss trains, break things and whatnot on a fairly regular basis. I am used to shit happening so I’ve stopped caring. But I was worried for my very organised and tidy boyfriend who is not as used to this (despite having dated me for three years).

Constantly looking over at Daniel I expected him to lose it any second. It didn’t help that our taxi driver kept on repeating ”God, you’ll never make it, you’ll definitely miss your flight, you guys are screwed” over and over like some sort of religious mantra. But Daniel stayed cool and $140 later we had made it to Toronto, Canada. Grand-Electric-Toronto-CanadaOne night it was stormy wet outside and in contrast to NYC’s 36 degrees it felt like a relief with the heavy rains. Being from northern Europe I don’t think I am an all around summer chick even if I’d like to think so. On this Sunday we took the streetcars down to west Toronto and my favourite restaurant, the brilliant restaurant Grand Electric that we went to when we were here for Christmas remember?Grand-Electric-Tacos-in-TorontoJess, Nick and Ken, all friends of Daniel since many years back, were there and we ordered all tacos on the menu. By far the best ones I’ve ever had. If you go, I especially recommend the fish, the pork belly and the Grand Fashioned cocktail.Jess-Tjeng-TorontoJess. Ken-KraneKen of the bespoke brand Krane

So to the sound of dirty hiphop and the pouring rain we caught up on each others’ lives, talked about their business and discussed social media strategy. Hanging out with people who have their shit together (aka all of my bf’s friends) is so fucking inspiring and STRESSFUL. I don’t know how long I will be able to ride this wave of ~being younger than all of them~ but I hope at least for another year or so, when I’ve become as successful and famous as I’m destined to……. AMIRIGHT?!! Haha, or at least hopefully that’s when Daniel will be, so I could freeload/become his sugar baby. Jess offered to become my personal coach though, which I think would suit my delusional desire to live a Kardashian lifestyle pretty well.

The rest of the night was spent at some dark bar where people with salaries bought me drinks because I couldn’t.

A HOLIDAY IN THE SWEDISH ARCHIPELAGO

Utö-WaxholmsbåtLinn-UtöLinn-Stockholm-2015Uto-PicnicBlog-Linn-WibergBlogger-Linn-WibergUtö-GästhamnSaga-på-UtöI am back in Stockholm after four days out in the archipelago where my sister Moa works. Our parents and baby sister are all moving back to Kenya in a few weeks where we’ve lived back and forth since 2005. We packed our bags and a couple of tents and took the boat out to the island spend some time together before we’re scattared over the world. Turns out I love sleeping in a tent, like full on hippie forest person kind of enjoyment! Who would’ve thought huh? I must be my getting old.

During our four days my sister almost broke her foot falling down a ladder, we cycled through fields and meadows, had picnics on cliffs, fought in that way only crazy families do, and devoured the best goddamn Swedish seafood. On one leg I can count to a good 18 mosquito bites and my face is burnt from sun.

A really good time by the sea. I’ll miss living close to my weird family.
