My second apartment-guest has just left after 4 days of intense Stockholm sightseeing and touristyness. Seeing the city through another person's fresh and interested eyes has reignited my love of it, and the weather has been GORGEOUS! Couldn't have asked for a better week or so, even if my poor shoulders are slightly paying the price.
Whilst Nav was here I tried to do things Rachel and I hadn't, so we visited the closest archipelago island Fjäderholmarna and gazed upon thousands of tall, tanned, sizzling Swedes...it was sickening :p. The ice cream was good though! We ate the 'cloudberry' flavour, which really is unlike anything you can get in England. We climbed the steps to the top of Stadshuset for fabulous views and even BBQd on the roof with Sarah and champagne - fantastic! Nav's trip was topped off with dinner at Hermans, a vegetarian restaurant in Södermalm, that serves a wonderful buffet fitting Nav's veggie needs to a T.
Next up comes Laura in 2 day's time, flying all the way from Hamburg. News from John tells that he's having a fab (if not chilly!) time in Greenland, and would by now have taken a midnight tour of the icebergs and a helicopter ride. Let's hope this Swedish heat holds out another week to warm his freezing limbs when he returns!
