In addition to being a photographer, I also write about travel and place, and last week, I was invited (along with various travel industry professionals and airlines) to a workshop organized by Dagama Travelweb and held at the swanky Stockholm nightclub – Collage.

From salsa dancing and freshly made Brazilian Caipirinhas to various airline swag, it was a good opportunity to network and mingle with others in the business.

I ran into performing artists Daniel, Luva, Maria, Eileen, and Lars (including Victoria pictured top-left) in the middle of Jokkmokk’s Historic Market during their intermission break while visitors milled around.

This was their fourth year at the traditional market performing as part of Teater Sláva based in Huddinge, a suburb of Stockholm located over 1,000 km away from Jokkmokk.
