I dived into my summer holiday straight after my last work day at the office. Here's best part of my Nordic tour.
I started my tour with a flight to Gothenburg where my friends Matti and Karin picked me up for a real Swedish Midsummer festivities in traditional scenery and atmosphere.
Maypole, anadems, campfire, grilling, potato salad, smoked salmon, pickled herring, strawberry cake, ice cream and and... And of course vodka shots and Swedish shot songs! And a nice add to all this: we got to see the traditional midsummer dancing in front of the maypole!
Vodka shots in front of the maypole.
Singing, shots and fruit cocktails.
Swedish pole dancing?!?
Not the biggest midsummer bonfire but a perfect campfire.
After Midsummer I visited Matti and Karin's place in Malmö for a couple of days. With my usual efficiency I experienced the best of the city in two days: second hand shopping, old city and the beautiful walking path alongside the canal. Also the lively seaside walk was great. There I found for example a pier where I danced a little while some rumba in pleasurable company of wine drinking ladies.
My second hand leather jacket and dress. And chillin' on the Malmö seaside pier.
From Malmö the tour continued to the Roskilde Festival in Denmark. You already know how it is on a festival so no need to explain that. But noticeable in Roskilde compared to other European festivals is the good quality and tasty festival food.
Not the ideal troposphere but the best atmosphere.
