We are just back to Copenhagen after a lovely day out, going over The Marvel Creation 🌉 and having a great time in a calm and beautiful city, Malmo, Sweden. This Scandinavian holiday of ours has been such a wonderful revelation.
Whether it was Helsinki, Finland, the gateway to this beautiful world called Scandinavia..; Turku, where we loved The magic of Loistokari 🏖️; Helsinki to Tallinn, A cruise on Baltic ⛴️; Bergen Norway Fjords & Archipelagos.. experience it right here ⛵️ or Oslo, The Norway Fjord experience.. it’s just been such real fun. It’s been Water water everywhere 🌫️ . And we just love water. Am sure you too. But in case you still don’t, you surely will soon 🚣
A trip to Copenhagen though is not complete till you visit Tivoli Gardens, the Amusement Park just opposite Copenhagen Central station, to experience A riot of colours... Have a look before we move on to some more watery delights 🚢
Having just visited a Swedish city, and another one few days back This nice & lovely tram city🚊 Gothenburg, the capital city is where most travelers first rush to. Stockholm.
We had decided to stay in Alvsjo, about 10 minutes from the City Center by train & had chosen Connect Hotel, Stockholm. Must confess, the choice turned out to be a great one. Nice cozy room, lovely views from the room, great spread for breakfast, tea and coffee round the clock & just a five minute walk from the station. A Coop chain store near the station to stock up on some snacks and drinks, some wonderful Chinese and other speciality restaurants, leading fast food chains & a choice of Coffee shops open till late night.
And Stockholm greeted us with this very special event, India Cultural Festival. We felt so proud to see India Rising. Who needed anything more? And especially when on top of it all, you have such great views all around to give your holidays a very special meaning👌
Sometimes when you are on a longish holiday, amongst the hectic schedule, there is a need to chill out practically doing nothing. Just laze around, walk around and soak in the beauty of nature. Holidays, we say, are for relaxation & we did just that today after reaching a little late, courtesy a delayed flight from Turku.
As we were at Tallinn airport taking our third flight of the day to reach Stockholm, instead of the cancelled direct flight, we happened to meet this jivy bunch. Nomme Beach Soccer Club of Estonia. And I beat their own photographer in taking this group snap of them 📷. A little interaction with some members of the team was so refreshing and a great learning experience. Holidays after all are for exploring and learning the new.
A good night’s sleep and we were right up early morning to discover more. Discover the beautiful landscape of water & islands, the Swedish Archipelagos. Stockholm, here we come.
And here is our guide Rebecca, telling us the history of the cruise boat, the islands and much much more about Stockholm. She was so good in the way she spoke & so passionate in narrating and educating us. Love and respect Rebecca. May you continue to be the great ambassador that you are, for your country. Come let’s take the journey.
Let’s in fact take the ride together and see some of the islands and you would then get a better feel of this wonder place.
And a lovely view of a sailboat before we disembarked.
Back to the city center, we were feeling hungry and for a change, were dying to have some Indian food. And what better than our very own Indian, Saravanaa Bhavan. The one and only one in the whole of Scandinavia.
The Dosa & the filter coffee was awesome. The day was awesome. And Stockholm, you are just awesome👌
