Sweden: Part III (Final) Stockholm

Stockholm was our final journal before we headed by to Gothenburg to take the plane back to London. My rascal and family decided not to go to Stockholm because they were feeling a bit tired so they drove back to Gothenburg, leaving Jackson, one of my cousin and me to travel to Stockholm by ourselves. I think this was a good plan, as my rascal wanted to go to Lisberg Fun Fair again.

We found out that it was the Euro Pride festival at Stockholm and there were so many 'proud couples' there. We thought we go to Kulturhuset (Culture House - art exibitions) for a coffee and apple cake on the top floor, where we dined with lots of proud people, which was a bit strange but interesting.

We spent our whole day walking around Stockholm (good exercise) passing the Royal Palace, Riddarhuset (Swedish Parliament), Nobelmuseet (Nobel Museum - history of the Nobel Prize), Queen Street, the old shopping street. The next day (we stayed at one of my Cousin's flat in Stockholm) we visited the Swedish Millenium Dome, a market where they sell Flowers and Fruits, and serveral department stores including NK as it was raining.

We then took the fast train back to Gothenburg for our flight back to London.

I would definately visit Sweden again and now that we have done all the touristy things, next time I will visiting more Arts and Crafts places.
