snapshots from stockholm & utö

Before I head to another destination this coming weekend, let me close the chapter of my recent Swedish soiree. As most of you would know, I was in Stockholm for a week to attend the Europride and just enjoy the Scandinavian capital I fell in love with the first time. It was raining sporadically during this holiday but that didn’t stop us and a throng of thousands from viewing the Pride Parade. We also managed a bit of shopping, sightseeing, and dining. 

I have mentioned in an earlier post that we were to watch Kate Ryan in concert, but tickets were sold out. We, however, were able to see some of Sweden’s biggest artists like the handsome Jude Law-ish Måns Zelmerlow and 90’s duo Right Said Fred (yeah, you read that right) at the Pride Park grounds.

A couple of days were spent out in the Stockholm archipelago on a beautiful island called Utö. Sadly, the weather was not as beautiful as it rained the days we were there, but we managed to entertain ourselves indoors with a boardgame and a pool table.

Here are some photos (this number is nothing compared to the actual number I took) and this is a heavy post, so I hope your connection allows you to enjoy these images of Stockholm and Utö.

    Thanks, Daniel. That was quick, I saw your comment just right after I posted. :) That cat was just sweet, it kept following us and he liked getting rubbed in the neck.

    Why is it that Pride celebrations here are so far away from how it’s done everywhere else in the world? =P

    Oh yeah, I’ve been to one in Malate before and it’s a world away from how the Western countries do it.
