Although, this particular day happened months ago, it still is very fresh in my mind. My parents in law were visiting us. They are the forever-young-at-heart couple who love exploring and ever enthusiastic about trying out new things and experiences. Be it a game or sport or group activity, they will be the first ones to partake in it. So while planning a Saturday out, Vj looked for places that with suit the interest of everyone in the family! His search led him to the Tom Tits Experiments located in Södertälje, Stockholm! Continue reading “K&K’s Visit to the Tom Tits Experiments Museum, Stockholm”
Writing about the places we visit, I wanted to share one of my favourite places in Stockholm as the first post for 2018! Back in 2016, when we came to know we were leaving to Stockholm, I prepared a list of places that I must see and Skansen was one of those. However, on arriving here, when I read the reviews and enquired from people about Skansen, I got extremes of feedback – people either loved it or found it extremely boring. There was no in-between feeling!
Therefore, before I could drag my family along, I decided to visit Skansen with a friend. It was winter. Three forth of the displays were closed. But still… there was so much to fall in love. The place itself transported me back in time. Continue reading “K&K’s Visit to Skansen – the First Open-air Museum & Zoo in Sweden”
This is our second winter here. It hasn’t snowed as much as it did last year. Last year’s was one of the heaviest snowfall Stockholm witnessed in decades and boy, how we enjoyed! We look forward to the same this winter!
I am thankful the cold, dark Scandinavian winter does not depress me. Our house is only lit with fairy-lights. If we need something a little more brighter, I turn on our Christmas star light. I find the low light, both outside and inside the home, calming and slowing me down. I believe it’s nature’s way of causing us to reflect on our past and prepare us for the brighter, sunnier days ahead!
As I sit cozily on our couch and reflect on how great this year has been, my mind wanders to our one day cruise trip from Stockholm to Tallinn, Estonia. This trip was special to us because we got to enjoy it with my parents and our very close friends. Continue reading “K&K’s Cruise Trip to Tallinn, Estonia”
