Part 3. Stockholm

Before I get started on my trip to Stockholm I would just like to say that I just realized that it had been a year since I started this blog! Wow! The time has gone sooo crazy fast, this time last year I was just getting pumped up for exchange and now it is almost summer! Ahhh!


My trip started very early in the morning with a long bus ride. We stopped on the way at a castle and got a quick tour before we had to keep going on the bus. At about 11.30 we got to the National Museum in Stockholm! I was so excited to be in Swedens capitol! We took a tour of one of the art exibits there, it was very interesting. We got to see some of the artworks that we had seen in our text books!

After that tour, we were free to do whatever in the city. Of course, we went shopping haha. I saw a T.G.I. Fridays! I did not know that they had those here haha. We also ate Ben and Jerrys ice cream. The weather was beyond amazing all day, it was definitly the best weather of the year. Everyone was soo happy that the sun was shining. =)

We got a tour of the opera house and that was very interesting, we even go to go backstage and see that the stage was tilted! It was so weird, I couldnt believe that ballerinas have to dance on a tilted stage. I definitly learned a lot about the opera house. We then got a little more free time so we walked around the castle, everything was closed so we were just randomly walking around taking pictures but it was fun anyway.

Then we went to the opera house again but to actually see the opera this time. We saw Tosca, it was a new experience haha, it was my first time at the opera and I had to keep reminding myself that they did not have microphones on then haha. it was amazing, they sang sooo loud! After the opera, we had a very long bus ride all the way home again, we got back into ton around 2.30 so I jusy went a collapsed into bed!

Kram, Haley
