This trip was amazing.
Stockholm and Copenhagen were two of the loveliest places I have ever set foot in. Much like Paris, you sort of feel like your jaw drops at your first glimpse of the skyline and pretty much stays in that position until you leave. These were gorgeous, gorgeous cities. Did I mention gorgeous? Really. Gorgeous.
I won’t bore you with a blow by blow, because I mostly want to share photos and thereby relive the experience. But I will say that all of your tips helped tremendously, even though I didn’t end up doing much fabric shopping. And I’m sorry I didn’t have a chance to meet up with any of you locals! I was still feeling ill part of the time and didn’t have the mental energy to plan a meet up, but I will certainly be returning to your part of the world because I loved it.
One of the reasons I love travel is that it has this powerful ability to completely clear your mind. You realize how big and beautiful the world is and how silly and insignificant all your piddly problems are. I feel utterly refreshed, with a completely new perspective.
Those vistas over the water really say it all. Stockholm is beautiful, as are the people.
And then Copenhagen. I want to move here. The flowers, the green spaces everywhere, the bicycles, the utterly peaceful zones within an otherwise bustling city. This city completely stole my heart.
