District of Södermalm

This week I’m hanging out in Stockholm Sweden on a work trip so the days I spend in Solna south of Stockholm on a course. However, the evenings I try to do something yesterday I vistaited the museum of photography and walked around old town and the castle. Tonight I had dinner at Södermalm and SoFo. It’s a chill and hip district and I think is valued as one of the coolest districts in the world. And it’s cool and very different from a lot of other places I’ve visited. Trying to take photos and to instagram and blog.

Evening walk

When I walked home from work today there was a sunny Oslo that sniled at me. Best weather in a few days and clear blue skies and cold weather. Just when Autumn shows itself from the best and most beautiful side. 

So I took the subway out to Sognsvann that’s a few minutes away form where I live in Oslo and took a nice walk in the sunset along the lake. Simple stunning. Also nice to get out in nature in the middle of the week.

  

Sunday walk

Last Sunday me and my girlfriend G took a walk along the new walk along the waterfront here in Oslo. It a rather new walk and our walk became approximately 10 km.

I took my camera with me and works o. My photography skills. Think photograph is very fun and it’s a interest I’ve got and that I really like to improve. Here are some photos from the walk.

   
    
   

Relaxing Saturday

Today might just have been the most relaxing day in a very long time almost to relaxing but think I needed that more than I might think. Sleept in because went to bed rather late last night.

However started out the day by watching so recaps from last nights NHL playoffs. As always the Swedes did good. 

To start of the day we went for a walk and after that we have read for a few hours and watched a few movies and BBQ/grilled some home made hamburgers for dinner.

Been a great day, how have yours been?

  

First day, Rome and the Vatican

First real day in Rome for this trip. And I had booked tickets to the Vatican museum and a guided tour there. I’ve been to the Vatican museum two times earlier but it has never been better. The museum is 7 km of hallways read I somewhere and no doubt that we walked much but I like walking so it suited me well. Have to say that the collections in the Vatican museum is stunning in fact sometime it so much and majestic that I don’t know if I’m able to get all impression into my head. The guide where also great but understood at other friends that the quality an vary a bit. 

After the museum we took and ate lunch a bit from the Vatican and it where a nice pasta and a Classic Italian Peroni beer. All of this in just my shirt and chinos in the 20 degree Celsius sun. Guess if that was welcome after 20 centimeters of snow and freezing minus degrees just two days ago. It’s like Swedish summer here in Rome right now and that’s just insanely nice for me. But I realize that the Italians think it’s col because it looks like they walk around in winter jackets.

 

 

  

Afte lunch it was time for the St Peters church which is the largest Christian church in the world and it’s very impressive and majestic. So walked around in that and saw the statue of Rafael. The tomb of the Swedish Queen Kristina and the we walked down into the crypt where the tombs of the popes are. Didn’t think that was open to the public but apparently it was and appreciated very much to see it. Then er ende the tour with looking at the Swiss guard. For many people this would be a full day but not for me and I shows mom Castello St Angelo down by the river and a walked over the St Angelo with its 10 angels.

  

  

Then we walked small Italian streets and mom got some shopping and I got my daily Italian gelato which is Italian ice cream.

Then we walked home and passed by piazza Navona which is very beautiful. The we made a stop and visited Pantheon the oldest complete building in entire Rome and where the tomb of the artist Rafael is located and also Emanuell Vittoria II the king that united Italy to one country. 

Then we walked by Fontana di Trevi and tossed coins in the fountain and took a look at it before we went back to the hotel to prepare for tonight’s dinner. No idea where we will eat tonight but will write about it later on.

Middle of the week

Wednesday day and the middle of the week. Just had a board meeting and find the work really fun and interesting. Proud to be a part of it.

More than that I’ve started to pack my bags for the weekend. Will be heading back to Sweden to celebrate both family members to me and to G this weekend.

But right now I’m taking a late evening walk before it’s time for the bed.

See you tomorrow.

Monday walk

Been a rather cloudy day here in Oslo but G and I took a very nice walk in the Frogner park after work today and that filled me with new energy and really got to relax a bit before I started to make some must do stuff here at home.

The week a head of me is rather intense with a board meeting and preparations, I have musts back in Sweden and the my mom have birthday and then G’s mom have birthday so will be celebrations and dinners in associations to these events.

Then I will try to squeeze in some friends also while I’m at home. So a lot of things but hopefully a lot of fun as well.

Tuesday weather

Today where the first time in a few days where I went to work in nice weather. That’s just a great way to start off the day. Everything get so much easier when it nice weather.

After work I went for a walk with so where out almost one and a half hour. Nice to just walk around a see the city.
Also rather nice weather during the evening walk. Here are some photos from the walk today.


Walk by the river

Been at G’s parents house now since we arrived back from the country side. So today have I done some musts, finished watching the rather new Teenage mutant ninja turtles movie that I’ve started to watch a few days ago. Then I needed some fresh air and a change of environment and than I love taking a walk along the river in the heart of Gothenburg so that’s what I did. It also was a absolutely beautiful evening, especially with all the lighight on the other side of the river.
