Scandinavia Trip: Day Eleven — Twelve

Monday, June 30, 2008

On my last day in Copenhagen I visited Christianshavn, the island south of the center of the city. It’s actually a well known squatter’s village where thousands of Copenhagers have set up a bohemian commune. Full of eclectic houses, various shops and stores selling everything — and I mean everything — it has a carefree […]

Scandinavia Trip: Day Ten

Friday, June 27, 2008

I´ve been in Copenhagen for only about a day but I feel like I´ve been living here for a year; a surprisingly easy city to learn despite its massive size. I headed to Club Silk last night. This club proved that even an all-you-can-drink night can´t make up for a lame crowd. Oh well, I […]

Scandinavia Trip: Day Nine

Thursday, June 26, 2008

I got to talking with the girl sitting next to me on the train to Malmo. I was telling her about my site and she pulled out her computer and for the next hour-and-a-half showed me pictures from her recent four-month trek through India. What an amazing trip. She said her money went so far […]

Scandinavia Trip: Day Six — Seven

Tuesday, June 24, 2008

I braved the cold breeze (okay breeze is being kind) and headed into central Gothenburg and began by getting a svelte haircut in a shop on one of the city’s fashionable pedestrian-only streets. With a few pounds of hair missing from my head, I made my way through downtown and stopped at the Maritime Museum […]

Scandinavia Trip: Day Four — Five

Sunday, June 22, 2008

When I booked my ticket to Tallinn, Estonia, from Stockholm, the agent mentioned something about this particular trip being a Persian-themed party cruise, which I found out later on meant that a large group of people from the Persian community in Scandinavia had planned a special holiday party cruise, complete with a special dining menu […]

Scandinavia Trip: Day Three

Friday, June 20, 2008

After finally getting some sleep (does eight hours make up for only five hours of sleep in a 48-hour period?) I headed back to Gamla Stan to do get a little video footage which I’d been neglecting to do thus far, and made my way along the island coastline south towards the giant Viking cruise […]
