  • Day4

    Auf den Weg Richtung Norden haben wir einen Umweg gemacht und Stockholm einen Besuch abgestattet.
    Levi war auf der Suche nach einem Comic von Läderlappen, der schwedischen Version von Batman, und wurde in einem kleinen Laden fündig.
    Ein Brasilianer der 9 Monate in Schweden ist, hat uns gestern Abend erzählt, dass die Schweden für fast alles sich einen eigenen Namen überlegen und damit es noch schwieriger wird, die Sprache zu lernen.

    Auch in Stockholm sind natürlich unsere FUNK eyewear Sonnenbrillen dabei. Da die Sonne hin und wieder vom Himmel gelacht hat, haben sie uns einen stylischen Dienst erwiesen.

    In Stockholm haben wir das gebrauchte Lipgloss gegen ein gebrauchtes Männermagazin von 1982 (S) getauscht.

    Damit haben wir schon eine wahnsinnige Wertsteigerung erzielt.

    Stockholm

    May 14 in Sweden

    Wir mussten einfach mal länger schlafen und sind deshalb nicht um 4.30 aufgestanden um die Einfahrt in die Schären vor Stockholm zu erleben. Aber um 8.30 beim Frühstück auf dem Sonnendeck war das Erlebnis auch wunderschön 😊
    Vormittags hat Andrea mit den anderen spontan ein Hop on Hop off Schiff genommen und sich schonmal einen Überblick verschafft. Nachmittags dann die Stadtrundfahrt mit Eva, einer Stockholmerin, die lange in Wien gelebt hat und deshalb ein Ösideutsch mit schwedischen Akzent gesprochen hat und Jamal, dem Busfahrer.
    Es war leider sehr heiß im Bus, draußen 27 Grad, wunderbares Wetter und eine schöne, sehr offen wirkende Stadt, da man die Stockholmer überall draußen sah, auf den Wiesen der unzähligen Parks oder in den Cafés. Hier werden wir auf jeden Fall nochmal herkommen!😃

    Hej Stockholm!

    July 23 in Sweden

    After 7 hours travelling by bus we arrived in Stockholm this afternoon. The next three nights we will sleep on a small boat with a great view on downtown Stockholm. It is really warm here so we were able to sit on deck till late in the night...

    Nach einer 7-stündigen Busfahrt haben wir heute am späten Nachmittag Stockholm erreicht. Hier schlafen wir die nächsten drei Nächte auf einem Boot mit perfektem Blick auf Stockholm. Da es hier auch gegen Abend noch warm genug ist konnten wir bis spät am Abend an Deck sitzen... Morgen schauen wir uns Stockholm dann näher an!Read more

    Stockholm: City & Beach

    July 25 in Sweden

    We never thought that we will go swimming in Sweden and now we did it twice... After a walking tour through the city yesterday we enjoyed a small and really crowded beach on Langholmen Island by eating ice cream today. Not too bad for a city trip... :)🍦

    Tomorrow our short visit in Sweden will end... :( We need to come back some day!

    Wer hätte gedacht, dass wir in Schweden zwei Badetage einlegen können? Nach der Nordsee waren wir heute noch in den Ausläufern der Ostsee am Badestrand von der Insel Langholmen mitten in Stockholm. Hier gönnten wir uns ein Eis und entspannten bei 29° im Schatten.

    Gestern sind wir den ganzen Tag durch die coole Stadt gelaufen. Gefühlt wird die Stadt zurzeit allerdings komplett umgebaut, sodass man kaum eine Ecke ohne Baustelle findet.

    Morgen endet unser kurzer Schwedenbesuch schon wieder... Schade!

  • Day5

    With the sun rising at 3.30am it is difficult to sleep in, although the teenager amongst us seems to be having no trouble. This morning we will collect our Stockholm pass and start seeing the sites further afield. Picking up our passes was a simple process, met a couple of Aussies from Vermont - Jeff and Peta - as we waited in line. First stop was The Royal Palace where we visited Tres Kronor Museum which gave us the history of the building of the palace, which suffered damage on multiple occasions due to fire. We then toured the Royal Apartments which were quite opulent but well preserved. We then toured the Livrustkammaren - where the Royal carriages are kept and we learnt of the love affair between Marie Antoinette, Queen of France and Swedish Count Hans Axel von Fersen. They met at a masked ball in Paris and then he made frequent trips to Versailles. They both suffered tragic
    deaths during troubled times - she was beheaded and he was killed by a lynch mob during Crown Prince Carl August’s funeral in Stockholm. A fascinating exhibition aptly titled I Love You Madly.

    Next we visited the Nobel Museum - quite small but some interesting exhibits - saw the Physics Prize 2017 that was awarded to Weiss, Barish and Thorne - for decisive contributions to the LIGO detector and the observation of gravitational waves, which researchers at CSIRO contributed to. We then wandered around the old town before stopping for lunch at a lovely restaurant called Cultur, where we had schnitzel and a glass of red. Finally we went on an Historical Canal Cruise around Stockholm. So far today we have walked over 11kms, well below the last few days where we clocked up over 20kms each day!

    The weather has been a bit cooler today which suits us. Our apartment is right in the centre of the old town with restaurants and bars at every turn. We still haven’t had meatballs or rollmops but I am determined to before we leave next week.

  • Day6

    We headed off on our cruise on the Gustafsberg VII promptly at 11am. According to the brochure, it was a 2 hour cruise - the reality was slightly different - it was a 2 hour cruise one way! We then had just over 2 hours to explore Gustavsberg and then a 2 hour return trip, so in fact in total 6+ hours. The boat we were on was a steam boat that has been in service since 1912, when Stockholm hosted the summer Olympics.

    We left from the Nybrokajen docks and headed up the canal past Södermalm the largest of Stockholm’s 14 islands - it has a population of about 124,000. Next we passed Fjällgatan and the Viking Line Terminal where we will catch the ferry to Finland on Tuesday. We also went past Djurgarden (an island to the north of Södermalm) where we passed the Vasamuseet and Skansen, an open-air Museum which we plan to visit tomorrow. We made our way up some narrow canals past lovely summer homes and lot’s and lot’s of boats of all shapes and sizes. We travelled past Nacka, Skuru, Björknäs and Tollare, where there used to be a paper mill from 1922 till it closed in 1967. It was demolished in 2011 to make way for new developments, mainly in the form of apartments. The building is nearing completion, but there is still much work to do to clean up the seabed which is contaminated with Mercury which was used in paper production. There will be this beautiful new housing development, but at this stage it is uncertain when, if ever, the people who move there will be able to access the beach and water in front of the property.

    We stopped at Artipelag Art Gallery to unload the majority of the passengers. Artipelag is a privately owned Swedish Art Gallery built by Björn Jakobson, the founder and owner of the BabyBjörn Company. The idea was to create a building in harmony with the natural surroundings on the 54 acre grounds. We will visit it when we return to Stockholm, which we will do as it is a wonderful city that I have fallen in love with.

    We stayed on the boat to our final destination of Gustavsberg. It’s claim to fame was originally making bricks from the mid-1600’s, then Sweden’s first porcelain factory was established there, and more recently artisans have continued to produce ceramics, household porcelain and glassware.

    From the little we have seen so far I am loving Stockholm- visually a beautiful city that we will start to fully explore tomorrow, I can’t wait. Here are a few pics from our post dinner walk this evening.

    Kungstradgarden

    June 30 in Sweden

    After securing our tickets for the cruise to Gustavsberg we had about 90 minutes to kill, so we wandered around the Kungstragarden area in the Osternalm district. Before we had gone very far, I tripped, landing on my left knee that I had scrapped and bruised by tripping when in London. I blamed my shoes and an uneven pavement in London, but today I was wearing my Skechers - so no idea what happened, except one minute I was walking along and the next I was flying through the air, and then I was on the ground - this one hurt more physically but my pride also took a hit.Read more
