APRIL SWEDEN 2011

72 HOURS IN GÖTEBORG-STOCKHOLM-ALUND-SANDHAMN ARCHIPELAGO



"one's destination is never a place, but rather a new way of looking at things." H.Miller
Greetings!

The luxury here is nature and simplicity of the swedish people

Vâlkommentill Sverige, ett land vackert med en marin art ständigt närvarande. My little Paris...
At your arrival Open Late with departures at around 11:30 p.m. the Arlanda express for 220 SEK duration 20 MIN or the Airport shuttle 229 SEK around will allow you to join quickly the center of Stockholm.



 MIDSOMMAR today, all is close: flowers are present on girlies head, in the street and this decoration gives more aesthetically appealing at this natural beautiful country.June still for me the best month for a enjoying sweden...
Inspired by Swedish folk art through the centuries, the Kurbits pattern combines graceful illustration and photographs of flowers in bright harmony. 

National Day on 6th June is also another period festival in Stockholm which allow to feel lappish for a week-end or as me for ever now.
Stureplan is the place to be for business or nightclubing (personnaly i'm no smoker & no drinker) but it easily to find a famous place  for a cocktail by asking to swedish people who talks a very good english.My favorite nightlife scene is BERNS  located close Stureplan with an open terassbar, modern music and the advantage to meet Stockholm gilded youth well-educated and ready to talk until dawn of the archipelago and sweden culture

Skansen close slussen boats place, allow to meet nordic animals and taste deer with potatoes just delightful with a fresh cloudberry juice.
 

Boat trip to reach Skansen with his fox, bear and sea-lion with others scandinavian wildlife
Skansen home made swedish products


 this open air museum offers a possibilty to see the interiors of old swedish wood home



Have a look over the magnificient architecture visible outside with a small cruise in wood boat sighseeing.Approach sweden art in the blue line subway or multiple museum as national one and gustavian home furnishings style at Sôdermalm galleries.


If you like the trip in a trip don't hesitate to book a night  return Stureplan-Alund on Birka Cruise offering sauna with outside view on expensive cottage during the cruise,hot bubble pool plus no tax on product purchase on board, and a dance floor for clubbers... duration 24hoursi recommend it during cold season.

Mushroom soup
Swedish beer

A girl who meets a bit of shopping in a less pricey outlet called BAKARY  in south suburb bus 567 at Handelplatz station(Unbelievable 70% over Peppe Jeans Wadges shoes or Some famous Nordic Brand as Dale of Norway or Fjâll Râven...)

 
 
Back in Gamla Stan the medieval area with lots of tourist shops.All major interest spots are reachable by foot.

Bridge at few blocks from the Castle and Slussen
 

My co-traveller's cousin
Dorin DINOVO ambassador of Peace is a painting artist selling beautiful representation of Stockholm scenary in  Vâsterlânggatan street,I was also under the spell of the artist's work Heidi LÄNGE cotton bags.

Little break at royal garden  with scent of lavander and tasty Kanelbullar so swedish.
Glômska!If you have 3 hours during your stop or getaway in Stockholm, walk to skansen close stureplan, the highlight for those interested on unique opportunity to visit professional swedish craftspeople and bakers in their own workshops and nordic wildlife .


 For a panoramic view of the city, elevator is free on Gondolen for the pleasure of your kamera.



Amaizing restaurant in Gamla Stan barely visible.
 
T-Centralen is the best point for reaching quickly Arlanda Airport with swebus or Arlanda Express if you haven't a free shuttle from your hotel.
 Stockholm is so beautiful that even the sun does not go to bed. This explains the blue sky that will go with me all night and rocked the city in an atmosphere of Midnight Sun.


Time to reach Gôteborg by dalahâst, just a joke

 Brunch close Avenyn the glamour street with famous shops and restaurang in Gôteborg
Hasarem's bakery with XXL Kanelbullar in Hagen district at Gôteborg 
 On winter, specially on December Gôteborg with liseberg and Stockholm are simple bewitching...

God jul 2011 from Stockholm, unbelievable no snow and a pleasant sunny sky in November
Gott nytt Ar 2011 at Skansen

 Ice bar nearest T-Centralen, before the fireworks around Stureplan and a Spybar's short dancing night with a lingonberry glass cocktail.
 
 
 
Departure for the pearl of Stockholm one of his archipelago " Sandhamn " two hours by buying your one way ticket directly on Cinderella boat on the harbor side of National Theater
 
Living Stockholm city by boat it an opportunity to view some Museum - Castle and Restaurant building with swedish design
 





The salty air annouces us that  we are near  Sandhamn Harbor


Without wasting a minute, after dropping luggage, heading Trouville sand beach...

After passing through a beautiful forest during 20 minutes, not a car horn or motorcycles, or tourist crowds.



Surrounded by greenery, lulled by the waves and the birds singing, feet in the warm golden sand.

 In bright sunshine.
This archipelago is a pearl...



Curious to find others amaizing beaches on the isle...




 



 Different from trouville beach but also relaxing and beautiful
Cute beach between colored  cottage

 with scenic sea atmosphere without big boats around

 

 
View from the Yacht hotel room on the harbor...
 



End of the journey on the Sauna before a course dinner
 Sweden homemade breads, medley of shrimp, crab carpaccio, delicious seafood ...





Place to the midnight sun  before a funny party on boat with new friends and on the Yacht hotel dance floor ...



Picture taken at 11.30pm
 Back to Stockholm City
 with festival summer shows close royal park
 Who said that sweden is not sunny ? :)
ONE LOVE - BOB MARLEY
 

 

Cheers...

Mycket inspirerande blogg om livet i Sverige och Sverige! Kul Pona! :)

Jag rekommenderar också att ta en båt från centrala Stockholm ut i Stockholms arkipelago. Där finns många vackra öar att besöka, t.ex. Fjäderholmarna och Vaxholm!
