A new week, a new blog post. Last week was still very busy because my parents were in Stockholm to visit us and discover a new city! They enjoyed the trip but they expected Stockholm to “look a bit more like London”. Now they know it better! In my opinion you can’t compare the cities but I love both of them. We did a lot of things… Went to Hermans, the Museum of Modern Art, The Nobel Museum, and a lot more.
On the day before they left we went to a place called “Skansen”. This place is a little village where people live, work, eat and shop like 100-250 years ago. Just to be sure you are aware of that: Everything there is a big role play. You pay around 12€ entry so they can pay the actors and everything else there. I wasn’t sure about what to expect because I heard good and bad things about this place but my parents wanted to see it so I joined. I am glad I did!
As we said in the last post, this blog entry will be about our boatrip to Helsinki (capital of Finland), St. Petersburg (2nd largest city in Russia) and Tallinn (capital of Estonia).
When the travel organization Scanbelt Expierence showed up at my university to introduce the “magical Russia Trip” for students and young people in general, we decided very quickly that we wanted to join! The journey was eight nights & days long and we travelled by ferry, a similar one to the one we took to Riga. We joined the trip with an amazing friend and got to know some other people while travelling as well. If anybody has a question about the trip, how to book it, about the costs or anything else, we appreciate your messages 🙂
Sunday evening, time for a new blogpost!
This time we want to tell you about our trip to Latvia. At the beginning of the week, friends told us about a weekendtrip to Riga by ferry. We booked a four bed cabin for only 89€ altogether!
We started on Friday 5 pm from Stockholm’s harbour and around 11 am on Saturday we arrived in Riga! Still a little sleepy after a long night, we started walking to the city center. We all did not know much about Riga before we arrived and only knew that the oldtown was supposed to be pretty. So that was were we went first.
