Stockholm

Google Maps: Stockholm, Sweden
Trip: Copenhagen > Bergen > Voss > Stockholm

The land of Victoria Silvestedt - that is how I used to relate Sweden with. How correct I was. Stockholm, the capital city, boasts of blondes in such a huge number that it is difficult to keep up with admiration. Where hazel green eyes, golden flowing hair and voluptuous body are a commodity the city is truly a land of fantasies. We started our three days with the trip to one of the archipelago that comprises Stockholm.


Having a sumptuous lunch with some of the hottest exchange students and a stroll at the island, we came back for a night at Stureplan - the centre of friday night parties at Stockholm. We spend a couple of hours observing people before coming back to our abode.


The next day we planned for Vasa Museum and an elaborate stroll to Gamla Stan which is the oldest of the 13 islands that Stockholm is made of. We started with the Change of Guards and missed it by a whisker of a second.


Vasa Museum was huge and elegant. The story of a ship recovered after 300 years in the sea was elaborately displayed.


Gamla Stan was awesome with narrow streets and curious cosmopolitan crowd. We did not buy anything but the walk through the cobbled paths was enough to occupy us all.


The next day we had to go back to Copenhagen  We covered a building which is claimed to be the biggest spherical building in the world.


We were back to Copenhagen and faced a little hurdle when a train accident changed our train routes and we reached our destination one hour later.
