Abstract [en]

The growth of tourism depends on how a destination can meet the needs of visitors. To be able to satisfy these needs, collaborations between different industries at the destination are required. The level of cooperation between the municipality, private actors and residents is a decisive factor for the development of the destination. This essay presents a qualitative study on destination development at Nynäshamn based on observations and interviews with the municipality, private actors and residents. This essay focuses on getting an idea of what potentials there are to promote a positive destination development in Nynäshamn. What efforts that are required to develop the destination and what resources are available at Nynäshamn, which is a small town near the sea. The study has shown that there is potential for Nynäshamn to create a positive destination development. This is by creating a strong placebranding and through destination marketing. Commitment and financial resources are required from the municipality to create opportunities and collaborations with private actors towards common goals. It is also required that there are collaborations with the local population as they are the mediators of the destination. These aspects have been identified as dominant to achieve a more positive development in Nynäshamn.

Hello my dear friends!

I’ve been pretty tensed the last 2 weeks due to the thesis in media technology. Not without a reason too. I did not know who would be rating my work but deep down I felt that the person that has always given me a hard time at school would do it and even give me extra baggage to carry as always. What makes it especially hard is that he is Polish and I am Polish too. Out of some reason this teacher is always finding reasons to make me work hard for my degree. I am done with two parts of the scientific courses in Media technology but only because the 2nd time a different teacher was giving me a grade and was focused on helping me clear the subject instead of making it into an competition. But I feel like this teacher is having some kind of grudge against me or sees me as a competitor.

My thesis has been reviewed once by another teacher and she did not pickpoint the issues with my research questions or the way I use my references. The only thing she pickpoint on when it comes to my method chapter is that I should try to explain more with my own words how I did things and only use scientifical articles as a reference. But this teacher wants me to explain every details that probably a child would understand even at this moment without me explaining it. The things which the teacher pickpointed cannot be solved in one week and he knows it. He could give me simply a fail mark but no, he prefers to challenge me and then stamp on me. It must be fun to make it more difficult for a woman with two children. But okay. Challenge is taken and I feel more than ever that I need to work my ass off and one day take his position so that there won’t be any uneccesary actions towards students and everything will be fair and square.

See you my dear people! I have some work to do …

They ask me if I did not had enough…

Hi! Hello! How are you ?

Today is a Monday, 17th January 2022. And officially the spring term at the Swedish Universities has started. And that’s why many people ask me: Didn’t you have enough of studying?

My answer will always be a “No”. To be honest every day is a new lesson, whetever I attend school or not. But studying is my drug. I cannot stop. If you ever tried to stop drinking or smoking then you know. It’s my way of taking my stressful life into other dimension and just focus on one thing instead of hundreds that I usually do since I became a mom.

This term, I am a student at Mittuniversitetet, where I attend two courses. One is about Action Learning as a Development Method. It’s a pedagogical course so I guess many teacher students will be there. And then English Writing for Business. And of course I’ve written essays, cover letters and CVs in English but this one will be about deeper stuff. At least that’s what I hope for.

Then I am a student at Luleå Tekniska Universitetet with the course of Basics in Programming with C#. I actually never did that much advanced programming although it reminds me of the JavaScript and PHP but let’s see how I will handle it. Why I choose this course ? It’s very simple. I need to know programming in order to be able to attend KTH, at least the Master programme in Interactive Media that I am intrested in. I have enough credits to get conditionally admitted.

Then at Kristianstads högskola I am to read about work and regulations; A Sustainable Working Environment, just to be more aware of how money should be handled. I will need those skills if I plan go all the way with my entrepreneurial idea of earning with my skills, writing, designing, creating content and sharing my knmowledge.

I am starting getting hungry… for knowledge but foremost I need my breakfast, thus thank you for being able to share with you about my plans and well, next destiantion: GROCERY STORE 😂😂😂 I wanna indulge in sweets and sallads.

See ya! Bye!
