Sweden

I am back with another travel post!  It's funny how I hadn't done one in sooo long and now you can't get rid of me! But don't worry, it will all die down after this one, I promise.

So a couple weeks ago I went to Sweden.  I went to visit a friend who lives in there. Her husband also plays basketball, so it was nice to hang out with some one who kind of understands this crazy sometimes awesome, sometimes miserable, lifestyle.  It was super cold, but little did I know it was preparing me for what we are going through now here in St Etienne, so stinkin' cold!

So here are some pics from Stockholm.

The buildings were so pretty.  It's funny, because I know that Sweden has a long history and everything, but it didn't look old.  It wasn't like what I have seen of the rest of Europe.  Sweden had nice big streets, new buildings and everything!  And an H&M on every corner - no joke!

This was yummy, little hot chocolate break was much needed to get out of the cold for a few minutes.


My sister-in-law would love this.  Organizing stuff all organized by color!  It was like an organized person's heaven.  Even I liked it, and trust me, I am not an organized person... right Christie?





Did you know that Sweden has tons of lakes?  They are everywhere and they were so beautiful as you can see from the pictures.  Some of these are making me cold just looking at them!  Some of the lakes were frozen over, which to this so Cal girl was absolutely crazy.  I knew it happened, I had just never seen it before.
Beautiful musuem.  So now when I am done with my Marie Antoinette history book (almost there!) I can start on something about Sweden!  Did you know that Marie Antoinette's lover was a Swedish aristocrat?  Fun fact of the day.  You're welcome.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Squee! I love Stockholm. My bf and I visited about 2 years ago for one of his conferences; we stayed at the Grand Hotel, which is right across the water from some of those boats. Your pics are beautiful, and many are giving me deja vu. There is something about the city that is just so fresh and wonderful, without feeling incredibly old (although it markedly is). And I fell in love with the food. Pickled herring? Swedish meatballs? Yum.

PS I am a northern CA and found your blog through an intricate series of blog links. So glad I've found it!
