Scandinavia Trip: Day Eleven — Twelve

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 […]

Scandinavia Trip: Day Ten

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 […]

Scandinavia Trip: Day Nine

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 […]

Scandinavia Trip: Day Eight

Sitting in the Gothenburg train station this morning waiting for my 11:40 to Malmo. Here’s a couple videos from yesterday I took. The first is of Heaven 23, a rooftop bar that had an excellent view of the 10:30 p.m. sunset. The Second is a view from inside one of […]

Scandinavia Trip: Day Six — Seven

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 […]

Scandinavia Trip: Day Four — Five

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 […]

Scandinavia Trip: Day Three

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 […]

Scandinavia Trip: Day Two

I convinced my friend Helena, who works as a local travel writer in Stockholm, to skip work and show me around her favorite places around Stockholm. We took one of the open-air boats in the docks next to Gamla Stan and took a ride between the many islands that make […]

Scandinavia Trip: Day One

I landed in Stockholm after a short stop in Copenhagen, checked into the hostel, and with a few hours of sleep under my belt ventured into central Stockholm to explore the city. I stumbled upon the main park where the city was setting up a stage and a giant screen […]

Scandinavia Trip: Day Zero

I’m starting my blog for my Scandinavia trip, even though it doesn’t really begin until tomorrow. I’ll by flying out of New York (okay, New Jersey) tonight and arriving in Stockholm, Sweden, tomorrow morning at the cheerful hour of 7 a.m. It’s quite an adventure lugging around a giant backpack […]
