Summer Edition `012 Day 22, 19th of August: Bäst Kladdkåka

Today is sunday and actually a sunday I really liked. Most of the time I think sundays are too slow, but this one was perfect =)

beautiful girl on the flea market in 50s style and tattoos :)

First I went to the book fleamarket at the Festivalveckan pa Drottninggatan. I bought an english copy of Paul Auster’s “New York Trilogy”- of course! Yesterday when I met Kathi’s flatmate Kristin we talked a lot about books and especially “The Brooklyn Follies” which is just awesome! (Also by Paul Auster…) I bought the book for 40kr. and gave my book Life of Pi” to Peter. I didn’t want to carry it along.

I met the others again in the middle of the day we also walked down the street. We also went to Gamla Stan and a very sweet cafe in a great location “Rosen Cafe” but please don’t expect too much for the cake… The toilet is very sweet I can tell that! (Not that the cake was aweful, it was just really tiny and therefor expensive, I wasn’t satisfied.)

We passsed the most strange 2nd hand store in the Universe & sat down by the river /sea/water/whatever.

Took a ferry to Djurgarden and walked to Rosendals Slott & a greenhouse area where the best kladdkaka is!!!!

If you are in STKHLM you HAVE to go there like once a week! I didn’t eat this cake today but I will go there tomorrow again! Finally I said goodbye to my friends for they are leaving tomorrow for germany. I was glad I could hang around with them and who knows when we will meet again!

Had dinner at Vapiano which is much more expensive than in G-ny.

Summer Edition ‘012 Day 20, 17th of August: In the Country

Great… I already had the post, and when I wanted to post it, the site didn’t load and when I was going back, everything was gone!!! I hate it when that happens!

So I was spending my day again not “lära svenska” and talking german instead most of the day. Outch! These Mosquitobites on my right foot are almost killing me!!!

We met at T-Centralen to get a train to a nationalpark “Tyresta” which was really nice! It was quiet, calm, good weather for wandering through a little wood. We had fun with the trees (sounds like we took some pills beforehand, but it was true, look yourself!)

We had some of these:

fake oreos



And then took a rest at an interesting lake which had the colour of brown, but that didn’t hinder the boys to swim anyhow…

When we got back to the city we were all pretty tired allthough it’s been only 5 o’clock. While the others went home I decided to walk a little bit around town to looking for ice-cream or chocolate cake! (i am sorry I don’t know what happend to the size actually…)

I went to Kungsholmen to accidentally see the pretty Radshuset with a globe & a sunclock.

I went down to the river where it reminded me of the Rhein-area =)

I got to the Cityhall which is such a beautiful building and place! There is a svenska horse also, a little garden with small fountains, the river itself, a big tree inside the court and so on…

I walked over to Gamla Stan but had to pass a small island called Riddarholmen which is quite nice =) And there I had a great view to Cityhall again:

In Gamla Stan I walked by a jazzclub called “Stampen” where they were having live music which always like catches me but I resisted this time! I kept on walking and when I was in the Stora Nygatan I was suddenly stopping in front of the “Only Vegetarian Restaurant In Gamla Stan” called Heritage. I was very undecided if I should go in or stay away for I wasn’t really hungry when a girl talked to me out of a sudden: “You have to get in there!” And then I was telling her about my dilemma.

She, Flora and he, Hubert were sitting and talking and eating and they invited me to sit at their table right next to the door of the restaurant.

Actually Flora reminded me of Chiara whom I met exactly one year ago in NYC so I kinda thought “This is such a sign” but she actually was not from italy but from brazil. And Hubert lives in south sweden but actually comes from hungary and poland. We talked a little while, saw two girls protesting for the girl band from russia who are (as I am writing) still emprisoned, Pussy Riot, you know them)

In the end I was taking a photo of the 3 of us! Sometimes it is so much fun meeting strangers on the street- you have no prejudice (sometimes), no names, no brands, no ideas & ideals and you’re just talking and getting to know interesting characters like they just escaped from a novel. Like in “Midnight In Paris” but different.

I said goodbyer for the ice-cream was still screaming for me, but for that I had to walk till Södermalm to Götgatans “Stikki Nikki” to have a GREAT, DELICIOUS, HUGE & therefor cheap gelato! I payed per ball 15kr. and I had almond ice cream & rasperry sorbet! The shop itself is so cute…

I was walking back home to Veronica and we watched “The Proposal” which was actually not that bad. And actually, but that is a secret, I really like Sandra Bullock!

Summer Edition ’012 Day 17, 14th of August: 1st day in Stockholm

I am so glad I wrote a diary, I would probabyl have forgot about so many small things, now that I am reading and typing it down it feels good and I am back into summer, now that it is a little colder here…

Finally I reached one of my year’s aims of my list! Sweden & Stockholm!!!

inside a chruch. I don’t know what the deal is about blown up globes…

most narrow street in Stockholm

When Veronica & me got up we ate a little bit and got into the city where I bought a weekly metrocard for 320 swedish crowns which is about 32 €, which for this huge area is pretty cheap!

german church

We went to a 2nd hand store V worked at, had lunch at her flat, went to the castle, Gamla Stan, the city theatre and some other nice places. We have plans for the whole week, I’d like to have a chocolate+chocolate (kladdkåka) cake one time and see as much as my motivation let’s me for I am now in my vacation mood finally! Don’t panic & no need to stress!!!

V is listening to swedish-german vocabularies and has fun :)
