As I sort of mentioned in one of my posts last week, I’m going to do a bit of a round up this week of some of my favourite things from this summer. Don’t worry: they’re all image based with links at the bottom of the post to take you to the original post. There’s no words to read in this one. I had a lot of fun figuring out how I wanted to set this post up and how I wanted it to look. It was also nice to go through all those posts and photos one more time before really moving on to what’s next. Tomorrow I’ll be posting about Deba, which is a little nothing of a town up in the Basque country. Even with it being so small, as I’ve been putting the post together, I realized that two weeks is a long time and there’s quite a bit to include! Anyways, that’s tomorrow so today: one last look at summer.
Sweden knows how to do a lot of things right. Music (ABBA, The Cardigans, Opeth, Lykke Li, Tove Styrke, Swedish House Mafia, Icona Pop, Robyn), fashion (H&M, these people, these other people and that girl we saw at 5:40 in the morning riding her bike looking more put together than anyone has a right to at that time of the day), design (I mean really: Ikea. There’s more, loads more, but that’s all I really need to prove my point.), they’ve got some flawless athletes (TBH, I just put this here because: Zlatan. Also: Björn Borg. (He’s the one on the left. Obvs.)) and then there’s food. Swedish meatballs, guys. Like, c’mon! Continue reading
Our second day in Stockholm consisted of me forgetting my water bottle in the fridge after we’d dropped the keys off (followed by two weeks of me occasionally going, “I really wish I had my water bottle,” to the annoyance of Vimbai), exploring more of Gamla Stan, heading to Drottninggatan to see if I could maybe find a water bottle (I didn’t. It was too soon and my standards high.) as well as a place to print off our tickets for our football match later that day in Linköping. Continue reading
I apologize about yesterday’s post. I had had it as a scheduled post to finish and then the internet went whack on me and it went up half finished. I have, now, added a title and more words and edited it, so you should head on over and take another look. I also cut it short because oh boy, I took a lot of pictures, which is, apparently, a thing that I do. Continue reading
After a full day in Copenhagen, we headed back to Lund, made lunches for the next day, called a taxi, packed our bags and headed to bed. Our train the next morning had a 5:25 departure and we arrived in Stockholm at 9:40 and we started exploring. Unfortunately, the place we rented wasn’t available until after 16:00, which meant that we ended up walking around Stockholm with our backpacks firmly on our backs.
