Amazing Scandinavia

Hej! The last three weeks have been amazing! Well, the past six months have been amazing. I over use the word amazing. I recently went up through Sweden: Stockholm → Norway: Oslo → Sweden: Gothenburg → Denmark: Copenhagen and it was a dream. Oh, I mean, it was amazing! I can’t wait to explore more of these areas someday, including Finland and Iceland! My list of places to visit is getting really long. I have limited computer time this week so below is my quick description of each place. YOU need to go visit these places, sell your TV.

Sweden

Stockholm and Gothenburg both put the Austin, Texas “hipster scene” to shame. I saw multiple dudes wearing two different shoes at the same time – one shoe color/style on the left foot and a different shoe color/style on the right foot. Amazing.

Oslo is a NICE place. It is pretty pricey but has really good food, the best clouds and perfect parks. I especially enjoyed roaming through the quiet neighborhoods and visiting the The Vigeland Park. It is the world’s largest sculpture park made by a single artist, Gustav Vigeland.

Denmark

If I had to make a list of my favorite cities so far, Copenhagen would definitely be at the top of the list. Imagine a place where you can wander into an amusement park, ride a roller coaster and then see a Snoop Dogg concert in the same hour! That sums up Copenhagen.

    Hi Anthony, it was a really good choice to skip Finland. I think you understood it when I told you in Dubrovnik that Finland is “dark, ugly, cold – perfect.” If you are going to visit on your next trip, I suggest to do it between November and February for the ultimate depression tour. You will never be able to understand major chords anymore. It’s perfect. That is of course also the best time to see the Northern Lights, but don’t expect any polar bears, they’re dead.

    All the best.

      Hahaha, this is the best comment ever!! You have weirdly convinced me to visit Finland. I will go someday and it will be depressing and perfect. Thanks Severi, you made my day. I hope all is well with you!
