Dear All Greetings from London, towards the end of another February half-term, and just after another wonderful mid-winter mini-break. Since Denmark this time last year, I have been continuing with the Scandinavia theme for my February trip, mainly for my sheer recent fascination with this region of the world: its history, beauty and people. Whilst Denmark last year was a lovely little trip, my m... Read Full Entry

My hometown
Oh. You've been to Stockholm, my hometown. It is interesting to read what you as a foreigner think of us and of Stockholm. I need to point out that Stockholm is not pretty in February. Please come back in June or July. It is a totally diffreent city then. /Ake

Stockholm
Tack, Ake 😊 I thoroughly enjoyed my time in your hometown - what an amazing city with such lovely people! If that is the case, then the summer in Stockholm must be even more incredible! I just loved it, even if in mid-winter!

You are actually teaching me about Stockholm
I have actually never been to Centralbadet. It sounds like I should give it a try. /Ake

Centralbadet
Lol, thanks Ake. I think it's often true, one gets to know other places more easily than one's own. I found the Centralbadet a great place to relax after a busy day's sightseeing - I do recommend it 😊

Impressive!
Alex, I really enjoyed this blog and am super impressed!! -- with your persistence with overcoming the problems you experienced at the airport; learning Swedish!; your accommodation; even fixed most of your own meals, and did so very economically. You sure were able to cover a lot of Stockholm in a single day! Nice photos too!

Thank you 😊
Aw, thank you, that's really kind of you 😊 I think I got to know myself a little bit more during my time that day at Heathrow Airport. My goodness, it was so worth it - I really did have an amazing time in Sweden, a stunner of a country 😊

Catching your flight to Stockholm was a true miracle!
And I love your discussion about languages.

Stockholm Miracle
Thank you Bob - I believe the Lord was certainly looking out for me on that day...! 😊

Happy you made it!
Would have been great to meet up while you were in Sweden. ☺ I agree with Åke though, Stockholm, and Sweden, is not that nice in February. You really should come back here in the summer to see Sweden, and the Swedes, at it's best. ☺

Sweden
Thanks Per. I really enjoyed my time in your beautiful country. I found the people really friendly, and the landscapes just stunning. I imagine indeed even more so in the summer 😊

Stressful start
What a stressful start to your Stockholm trip, but glad you preserved and made your flight! Sounds like a full first day in Stockholm, and I look forward to reading about the rest of your time there. :)

Stressful
Thanks Lori! Indeed, it was really stressful... But I think so worth it in the end. I had a wonderful time in Sweden - one of my favourite countries now I think :D

Perseverance..... in flights and language!
I admire your spirit... never give up... stick with it until that cabin door shuts! It paid off as you made it on your flight. Bravo! I know you enjoy studying languages but Swedish. Aren't you something. Your talents never end and the rewards are big. You managed to do and see a great deal in a short time and looks like you've introduced new area to TB locals. ha ha. That is terrific. Eager to read more.

Thank you!
Aw, what a lovely comment, so encouraging - thank you so much, Merry! I feel the flight experience actually taught me quite a bit about myself... And I just love learning languages, it is always a real pleasure, whichever the language :D Indeed, I created a new location on Travel Blog - a sign that one has explored uncharted TB territory :D
