Magical Stockholm

290713- 115sStockholm, oh Stockholm. I just love that city. I instantly fell in love with it the first time I visited it 6 years ago. Only this year I got to visit it again, not a day too soon. Stockholm isn’t as small and cosy as say Gothenburg and not so down-to-earth. Gothenburg is where the averge Swede lives. I feel like lots of the people in Stockholm is a bit above the average. Stockholm is a city I would take weekendtrips to, but Gothenburg is a city I could see myself live in.  I don’t mean anything negative about this, because I love Stockholm so much. There is something magical about Stockholm. Something that is hard to explain what actually is. It just feels so close to my heart.

Sthlm <3 (again)

oldtownIt’s kind of strange. About a year ago, the 24th of June to be exact,  I wrote about how much I love Stockholm and how badly I want to go back in this blog. You can read about it here.

At work today, I got a task from my boss. We have two boxes that we’re gonna ship to Sweden and he wanted me to check how much it would cost. The adress to the loaction wasn’t complete, so I had to search for the exact adress. I thought it was Stockholm, but had to be 100% sure. I was right.

Instantly when I found out the city was Stockholm, I got the same feeling I had a year ago. There is this special feeling inside me. It’s hard to explain exactly how it is.

Ah! I really, really wish I could go back to Stockholm soon. Even if it only was for a weekend. I checked for prices and it’s not that expensive to go. You can get a ticket for under 1000 NOK; that is taxes and luggage included.

Well… to go to Stockholm I would need three things:

  1. time off
  2. money
  3. someone who is willing to travel with me

I think nr. 3 is covered. Ellen wants to go back too I think. Nr. 1 & 2 is not covered.

Maybe I should ask Ellen if we should plan a trip next year? We could start save money now. Or I could ask Chantie. But I doubt we will be able to go there together in the near future….

Well… I can dream, can’t I? :)

I heart Sthlm

After a trip downtown to buy a cardigan, a stop at the post office to pick up my three new Håkan Nesser books, dinner, reading the newspapers and some icream, I wanted to watch some TV. I flicked through the channels and stopped on SVT1. What did I find? The premiere of Allsång på Skansen!

Oh boy! Oh boy! oh boy!

Did that bring back some memories? Oh yes it did. Tons of memories hit me straight in the face. About a year ago, actually a year ago tomorrow to be accurate, me and Ellen went on a five-day trip to Stockholm. What a trip!

I fell in love with Stockholm instantly! Everything was so great! I had the most wonderful time in Stockholm with Ellen. We had so much fun. Five days may sound much, but it wasn’t. It was just what

we needed to explore this beautiful city.

Stockholm is a city loaded with great things. Lots of great museums. We visited the Wasa museum, an art-museum among other things. We alos went to two aquariums where they had lots of cool fishes. We even spotted Nemo and Dori ;)

There were sightseeing in Djurgården by boat, which was very nice.

Junibacken (the world of Astrid Lindgrens characteres) got a visit. We had a lovely time with all the kids. The crazy Per-fan (that’s me) visited Mr. Gessle’s front door at Strandvägen 39.

 We ate at some great restaurants, shopped at some supercool stores, had a great time at Gröna Lund where we rode some great carousells, ate some magnificent pizza and watched Timbuktu live! Overall we had a great time in Stockholm.

There is something about Stockholm. It hit me right in the heart. Somehow I just completely fell in love with that city. I get all happy when i think about it and see pictures I’ve taken.

There is something about that town that blew me away. The friendly people, the great places to eat, the shopping oportuneties, Sergels Torg (which is the picture above), the aquariums, Skansen….

Looking at Allsång på Skansen, made me think of all this. It makes me wanna go back there! Like… soon! I wanna have a five day trip to Sthlm again.

I wish I could take Chantie to Sthlm. That would be awesome. i know we would have so much fun over there. I know Chantie is more of a Gothenburg-woman, but I’m sure I can lure her into a trip to Sthlm.  I’m gonna try at least! hihi ;)

Oh and btw, Håkan Hellstrøm and Miss Li was on the opening show. Håkan is cool as always. Miss Li, she’s sort of new and up-coming. Her performans was great! I loved it. Didn’t the get name of the song, but I will sure check her out. I already got some songs by her, but i haven’t really listend to them. Only one or two a few times a while ago.
