More Stockholm

So it was really sad to leave that city, the Swedish people really have a great way of life there. It is really expensive like London but it is so tranquil, not crowded and the weather was so stunning, 25-30 degrees everyday perfect for out beach bbq's and Erasmus picnics.
walking through the city you are never far from a park or square and the water appears at every turn. My favorite day in Stockholm was walking through the national forest surrounding the Erasmus accommodation and finding my own secluded beach for a swim, I also had a great day with Kevin the Canadian (who's room i stayed in while he was in eastern Europe) we strolled around one of the bohemian districts of Stockholm and visited record shops and vintage boutiques.
It was a great time to be in Stockholm, i arrived just when the weather was getting nice and all the students had graduated from their studies so the streets were alive with people and all yellow and blue with the European cup fever in the air.

total blog neglect!

well i have been really bad, neglecting the blog.....shame on me!
i ended up staying in Stockholm for nearly 2 weeks, i didn't really do much there...well i did but didn't venture out of Stockholm really. I spent a lot of time exploring the streets and suburbs. Stockholm is really east to get around, there are metro stops everywhere if you can't bothered to walk and numerous lookouts where you can get a view of the beautiful watery city with all its boats buildings and charm.
The main vibe in Stockholm is it is really trendy, the young people in Stockholm live their fashion and trends and they are great at it! i saw the most beautiful and immaculate people here fashionable bars and pretentious clubs though we managed to find some alright places where the beer stayed below 6 pound and yes that is $14 AUD for a a pint of beer! the cheapest we found was 390 swedish kronor which is around $8 AUD for pint and that was really cheap, but then there was KUNG which you can buy from the government run bottle shops for 120 cronor which is like $2.60 AUD for half a litre....it isn't that bad.
here is some info on swedish beer
