Stockholm

with 2 comments


Greetings from sunny Stockholm! It’s my first time to Stockholm in summer, it’s truly different than summer in other European cities further down south.

As you can see, clear sunny skies with spots of clouds by the water front. Don’t be fooled!! The temperature hovers around 10 – 12 degrees celsius with wind chill bringing it further down to 7 – 8.

Overall, the city has turned lifely! Updates soon! Cheerios!

My next trip to Europe in July…

Stockholm, Sweden
Copenhagen, Denmark
Amsterdam, Netherlands
Riga at night
Riga, Latvia

Travelling season is back!! YAY!! Finally, Europe in summer!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTTSSS!

On a separate note, I’m thinking of taking up Italian… It seems only natural for me, rather than Spanish (which I did a while back), due to the presence of many native Italian speakers in my office at any given time. What do you think? Self-thought of course.. Too much in and out of Kuala Lumpur to attend classes…
