What is a workation?
It’s a mix between work and vacation! A few weekends ago I met up with about 20 other Swedish bloggers to work, workshop, network and enjoy a great vacation in Örebro, Sweden.
Saturday – Hotel breakfasts and workshops
I traveled early on the Saturday morning from Gothenburg to Örebro and arrived just in time for the hotel breakfast at Clarion Hotel Borgen. After we all had a welcome meeting during the breakfast we joined the hotel manager for a tour around the amazing suites at the hotel.
How beautiful is this hotel? And old bank turned into luxurious hotel.
After the tour we had a workshop with blogger and photographer Caroline Frankesjö about Lightroom editing. I’ve used different apps to edit my photos so it was nice to learn more about Lightroom and experimenting with it.
After the first workshop we had an amazing lunch at the hotel. Salmon with mashed potatoes! And how about that dining set up, just for us.
After lunch we had two workshops at Kulturhuset, one about film production and one about influencer marketing within politics. After that we had some time to mingle and get ready at our hotel rooms. After our short rest it was time for bubbles and a nice dinner together!

Of course I had to try the local beer from Örebro. It was called “Borgen Red IPA” and as you can see it’s the hotel on the bottle etiquette!
Later in the evening we all walked to Örebro castle to join a ghost tour.. We learned a lot about the towns history and it was really creepy visiting the attic and the cellars of this old castle.
Sunday – morning yoga, more workshops and photo shoots
On the Sunday morning we first met up for a 45 min yoga session and then we came back to the hotel breakfast buffet! Such a nice start of the day!
After breakfast we all walked up to the castle again for two more workshops, one about working effectively by Linda “Resa Medvetet” Engström and one about SEO by Elin “Teknifik” Häggberg. The day was finished off with a nice lunch together.
My train didn’t leave until later that afternoon so I took a stroll in Örebro town. Such a cozy place and the parks were filled with fantastic autumn colours! Johanna “Last Stitch” and Sandra “SandraCallermo.se” also joined to take some photos. Örebro was filled with really cool street art. Check out the pictures below!
I also want to thank everyone involved in this workation, it was a truly giving and fun way to meet other bloggers and new friends!
