The blog is taking a break

Hi there,

Since I moved to Stockholm and started my new job with the UNHCR I haven’t had the time to update this space properly. This doesn’t mean I won’t be back on here. And I occasionally try to add some of my work products and projects on this page: http://www.carolinebach.com/projects/

Overall, in short, priorities have shifted. And today, finally, I have more opportunities to spend time with people I love in person, socialize, and do fun things that don’t involve a screen. Instead, as part of my job, I’m sometimes on the other side of a screen – and I still travel, produce videos and take photos – but usually on mission with the office. Publicly, I’m still active on Twitter – feel free to connect and say hi on there! And of course on my more closed and private networks.

I will probably get back here with an update soon enough. Just not yet. In the meantime – here are some photos of my new job, my new life, and my first ever real home. Stockholm has welcomed me very warmly, and I couldn’t be happier with where I am at the moment. :)

Bloom in the Park

In January this year, I took my mother to the very cool restaurant Bloom in the Park for her birthday. It’s one of those “secret menu” places where you’re not told what you’re eating until after the meal on a dedicated website – a great experience & much recommended.

On the menu:
fake caviar
egg royal / black truffle
misocured potato / baltic prawn
oyster / lemon

Champagne A. Chauvet, Tours-Sur-Marne?

Beware of scammer using my name.

Did you get an offer to rent an apartment or get a request for money from me? Did you talk to a Caroline on some weird dating page on Facebook? No you didn’t.

No I’m not in the Philippines, no I’m not from California, no I don’t even work at UNICEF anymore. You have been subject to a scam and I’m thankful for having this website as a channel to warn you and protect myself.

Please let me know through the contact form of any profiles using my name, and please report them to the page they are using immediately. You can even link to this post. I would be much grateful if you helped me with this.

I guess this is to be expected at some point when you’re as active online as I am. People always said “why do you post so much online, aren’t you afraid?” and even if it sounds a bit strange – this is the exact reason why I have this website. I own my name and information online, and the page has very high rating on Google so it’s usually the first thing people find when googling me. Welcome.

Several people have contacted me and written that somebody is trying to rent them apartments in Australia or asking for money over Facebook messenger. They found me using Google and wrote to me through the contact form. Please do the same if you are here because of the same reason so I can keep track of what’s happening.

Being active online has always been part of my job and a way for me to stay informed and out there. I would be grateful if you could help me stop this person so I can continue being me.

Thanks a lot,
Caroline

P.s. You can also help me by clicking the image above and reporting the profile to Facebook..

Monday mornings

Here’s to beautiful Monday mornings after an all-in Friday full moon celebration and dancing followed by a sweet weekend spent mostly in bed.

Last night, after coming back home from a short afternoon working session at the office, I realized my phone battery had died. Instead of turning my phone back on, I started drawing. And then some sort of trippy elephant emerged. I haven’t drawn anything for many years, so this made me happy.
