I’m finally doing some of the things I’ve wanted to do since I found out I was moving to Stockholm!
A couple of weeks ago I took my first dip in Lake Mälaren (the water surrounding Stockholm). Many people don’t know but Stockholm is an archipelago – made up of lots of little islands. I love this fact because a lot of the islands can be walked around easily and I love to be beside the water.
My friends moved to a new apartment right on the waterside and we celebrated by going swimming. The water is really clean which I think is pretty impressive considering it surrounds a capital city! The weather was beautiful and the water was so refreshing. Incredibly cold but it just made you feel amazing.
The night before we went swimming I saw an otter in the water which was incredible! I was over the moon.
Next on the list was to go to Gröna Lund and I heard that one of my fave Swedish artists was performing there so it was time for a ‘moms night out’ as my friend Courtney put it! We had a blast!
We got thee early so went and sat by the waterside for a couple of drinks!
We took it in turns to say Skål / Iechyd da / cheers 🥂
You don’t even want to know how much these cost….. (somewhere around £22)
Jireel was pretty awesome and I had soooooo much fun dancing the night away. Here’s a link to one of his songs.
Afterwards we went for a drink in Kungsträdgården and had Mojitos and chips!
This girl is fabulous. She didn’t even like the music we went to see but she went because she knew I really wanted to go – now that is friendship!
Can’t wait to tell you about more adventures soon!
