Sweden was a really beautiful place, It was so sunny yet had a hidden chill in the air which i soon found out about when i went the first day in just a tshirt and shorts! We took a train from Copenhagen to sweden and everytime you travel you are kind of sad to have to leave it but sweden really proved to me that you always have to look forward as you never know what or who is around the corner! We finally arrived with only an address and no map, it was only a 10 minute walk though so how far wrong can you go? well an hour and a half wrong with huge backpacks on your backs is how. and then we find our guest house is a tiny door in a main street with an even smaller name on the buzzer for us to call! we were all relieveed to just eb able to get to sleep though. The lady we were staying with was a little strange but cool - she was a desgner who had worked for IKEA which i thought was pretty cool! Anyway we were there to see the Way out West festival which was amazing we saw...Arctic Monkeys, Wilco, Bon Iver, Band Of Horses, Beirut, Antony and the Johnsons, Glasvegas, Florence & The Machine and Royksopp! It was my first festival and I LOVED IT! We also met 3 amazing people (the three musketeers - Roma, Riccardo and Filippo. They were great guys who i ended up riding on the back of a bike with, sneaking into a party in this amazing art museum and simply having a great time with! il miss those guys! Sweden also had amazing museums including the Universeum which had a real rainforest and shark enclosure in it!! I got a bit over excited and ended up falling over and i still have the grazes to prove it! There was also this amazing art museum where Laura Suzanne and I danced on stage to Bollywood music. It was prob one of my favourite places and I cannot wait to go back.
