Uniquely Sweden: random thoughts that stir the memory
Swedes carry really, (really!) large shopping bags. First time I saw it, I cracked up
There are sooo many women with baby carriages. Out on the streets, it looks like...a NASCAR race of baby carriages:) The café exteriors, look like stadium parking lots for these carriages:)
The road rules are not for bucking as we realized. We had to cough up 300 (Kroners) for a speeding ticket, roughly a $40-43 - bummer!! Lesson learnt! But am glad we bucked the law by a HUGE margin heheee
We saw daylight till 10pm, this is the land of midnight sun after all
#LeRouge, a restaurant and bar, we visited was like stepping into French fin-de-diecle. Classic French and Italian menus, where tradition is more important than trendiness. No Swedish minimalism at this bar!
Bought a beautiful silver dolphin from the beach side silver shop. Somehow reminded me of Goa:)
Saw some uniquely talented street side performances. Sipping a coffee at the bay filled with sleek yachts, boats - watching these performances by the roadside-Life:)
In Sweden the right of way is for Dogs, Cows and Cycles first:)
Swedish women don't change their surnames when they get married.
Side-streets and kerbsides are filled with flowers in bloom, almost feel like they are there by design!
One big downside, people push you in the malls and even the cafés and don’t apologize!
Besides blonds and bikes, Sweden is known for great wine. And also for fresh ginger orange marmalade's, great coffee and cheeses, croissants…I got back some of these goodies..:)
