Trip to Copenhagen, Malmö & Lund

Hi there!

The days in Sweden are still getting shorter and shorter. Now it gets dark even before 3 pm and although we don’t have snow at the moment it’s pretty cold and frosty. We enjoy the Christmas markets, baking cookies and meeting with friends for dinner or a movie – I love the cozy times before Christmas! 🙂

Last weekend though, as we told you in our last post, we went on another trip, to another country again. This time we went to Copenhagen (Denmark) and to Southern Sweden, Malmö and Lund to be exact. We went on the trip together with our wonderful friend who also came to Norway, Russia, Finland and Estland with us – this combination of us has proven to be an awesome travel-trio! 🙂

Welcome to Skansen!

Hej guys!

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!

Our Boattrip to Finland, Russia & Estonia

Hey there!

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 🙂

A little Sunday hike

After a more or less productive Sunday morning we felt the urge to go outside and explore a new area. We spontaneously decided to take the metro to Farsta Strand (took us about 25 min.) and go for a walk around the lake Magelungen.

It was so wonderful! Especially after some busy days it always feels so good to return to nature.. It’s so awesome to live in such a big city which however offers so many beautiful green spots and even lakes close to the city centre! I guess our dream for the future would be to live in such a place where we can have both – the comfort of a city and the opportunity to experience the beauty of nature.

We met some other pedestrians along the way but besides that it was so quiet and very peaceful.

A Boattrip to Riga

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.

First steps in Stockholm

After months of preparation and excitement the day did finally come. The 16th of August 2017. On this day we took a plane from Stuttgart to Hamburg and finally to Stockholm Arlanda Airport. We arrived around 20:15 to the prime time. Is it true? We are finally here? Back in the plane we had a very nice moment just before we reached Stockholm. We

looked out of the windows and there we saw islands everywhere. Beautiful never ending forests in a gorgeous sunset. Stockholm wanted to give us a warm welcome with this view. What an amazing start to our 5 1/2 months of living there.

We got our suitcases pretty fast and directlybought the tickets for the “Flybussarna” at the gate. This bus brought us to the Central Station. The tickets were around 99 SEK for each person which are about 11€. Armed with the tickets we left the gate and searched for a cash machine because we needed to get money to pay the rent. We found one next to a Exchange Office. Ok, how to chose? Where to get the money? “WE SELL” “WE BUY”… nobody gets this! After a quick google session we decided to ask the guy in the Office where we get the best exchange rates so we decided: Cash machine and exchange rate defined by the bank in our home country. In retrospect the right decision! Highly recommended informing yourself before you draw out money! With the money, suitcases and bus tickets in our hands and a lot of excitement in our heads we took the bus to “T-Centralen”. Thanks to Google Maps it was no problem at all to find the way to the area we’ll live: “Enskede Gård”. Our landlord did already wait for us because we were a little late.
