Day 3 in Stockholm
I arrived in Stockholm Bromma on Wednesday the 1st, Bromma is one of the airports in Stockholm. I took an airport bus and Christine, my host for this week in Stockholm, got me from the busstation. I got a tube/bus/train/boat card for a week, and I can take the subway and bus and one of the boats to one of the islands with it, so that is a nice thing. Public transport is well organised here. Basically all public transport in Stockholm can be done with the blue traveller card :-)
After we put my stuff at Christine's flat, we took the tube to buy some food, had a salad at home, got back into town after our late lunch and walked around and Christine showed me around town.
Stockholm is a really nice city, loads of old buildings, so much different than I have experienced before because of the lakes that surround Stockholm.
Yesterday, Sweden had a public holiday and so Christine was off from work and she showed me some other parts of town. This side we did yesterday, was even more beautiful. We sat by the water just relaxing, watching the boats.
It is a big city but you wouldn't say it is a city of 1,2 million people, because you don't have that overcrowded feeling you have with other big cities.
Afterwards we met up with a friend of Christine and had a meal at an australian bar. We had some beer (3 times of what we pay, but I knew this before :-) but the meal wasn't any more expensive than with us.
People live in apartments , you can't really find houses here, but then I haven't seen the whole city yet, so I might still come across some.
Today I'm on my own, Christine is at work and I'll cook something tonight for the two of us. I would like to visit the Wasa museaum, it's a boat that sunk and they built a museaum around it. It's quite impressive they say so I'll be checking this out today.
There is also a photo museum in town that I would like to check out so more than plenty of things to do
