CouchSurfing Nordic meeting in Stockholm

I’m surfing away some time at Arlanda airport, waiting for my flight back to Helsinki. I’ve spent the weekend in Stockholm with Ellie, attending a Nordic CouchSurfing meeting.

It has been a great time, on Friday first visiting Drottningholm and Kina slott, and in the evening meeting CouchSurfers and my friends Ricard and Marianne from Oslo for the first time in a long time. Saturday was spent just hanging around and recovering from the previous night, while Sunday included a CS brunch at my favourite cafeteria String in Söder and a good guided tour around the local alleys.

Tremendous advertisment

I love this advertisment… Maybe understandable even for people not speaking Swedish 🙂
