So over the next couple days I’m going to post some pictures of my Christmas, some funny videos, and some to let you inside of our home to see what it was like. I sure missed my family yet I have to say that it was so much fun. Learning new things and being on this side of the world with my girlfriend has been amazing since she was with me in Denver for the past 2 years. This has been a great opportunity for me to see how things are over here. I hope you enjoy these pictures and be sure to check back for what I have in store for later 🙂 ENJOY!
So this Saturday one of our friends Emelie invited us along with some other people to enjoy some: Cheese, Baguette, Salad, Wine, and much much more while we watched the Nobel dinner at Stadshuset (which is the Stockholm City Hall).
I went to a indoor shopping mall with Nadja today. Actually we are on the bus going home from it right now as I write this. The place was actually pretty nice and since the weather is pretty cold I have to say that the American style shopping mall was a nice change of pace. I was starting to get hungry so I made a stop to the nearest food kiosk. It was a small stand which used a machine which resembles the same kind of rice steamer you’d see at an Asian restaurant, yet instead of rice it was corn. I thought it sounded interesting and who doesn’t like a cup of corn? So I opted for the “Mexikansk” cup of corn which was mixed with: Butter, salt, and chili powder. It reminded me of the Mile High Flea Market back at home, well maybe not exactly but it worked for me 🙂
About two weeks ago my girlfriend turned me on to this website called Pinterest. I don’t know if you are like me but I seem to have a hand full of social networks I’m trying to keep up with. Whether its snapping a shop for my iPhone app Instagram, updating the FB status or even trying to fit Google+ into my busy schedule, I seem to have my eyes glued to my iPhone. So when Nadja told me about yet another social network I needed to try I was like, Nej Tack (No Thanks)
Here is a picture I took a few days ago. For the past two months I have been told by almost every Swede I’ve talked to that I am going to be sorry when the snow comes. It’s has snowed about 3-5 times in Denver and still the weather seems to be better here in Stockholm than in Denver. Finally I saw some snowflakes falling from the Scandinavian sky so I decided to catch a picture while I was walking from the train to the the store for some milk. It wasn’t much but I will surely say that it’s getting colder as the days pass. I’ll keep you all posted on our weather out here, and while I wait for the next snowfall, I’ll have to hope it stays calm until after I can buy some snow boots. 🙂
When I was young my favorite parts of going to school was the field trips. I mean who doesn’t love getting away from what you are suppose to be doing so that you can travel away for a little bit and try something new?! Well as it turns out when you grow up, and time becomes important these field trips become less fun. Today however was a little different, today we were going to Stockholm’s Modern Museum or I should say Moderna Museet. I was looking forward to going to this place and after all, part of going to a new country is learning the history and about the culture.
So a little over a week ago was the Swedish “Halloween” and I have to say it was much different. Not only was it not in October like it is in The States but it was also not a commercial holiday otherwise known for spending your money on candy and costumes.
So I’m about a week behind right now with some of the pictures I wanted to share, but I didn’t want to forget these one. A little over a week ago Nadja made me some dinner at her sisters house. She was watching her niece while her sister and her husband were away in Champagne, France.
