Wow! The fourth week has just ended, and I am heading into week five of my JSB study abroad experience. As I sit here and reflect the past few weeks, I’m not surprised when I say that I am experiencing a ‘sweet life.’
This past weekend I spent my time in Stockholm, Sweden with a few other girls. We got up early Friday morning and caught a flight that brought us to the beautiful city. We spent the day walking around, shopping, eating some great food, and getting to know the Swedish city. We grabbed a few cocktails and appetizers that night and headed to bed.
Saturday morning, we got up and went straight to the ABBA museum. When I say it was some of the most fun I’ve had since being on the Joseph S. Bruno Study Abroad experience, I mean it. Reilly and I sang karaoke to “Honey, Honey” and then got on stage to sing “Dancing Queen” with a simulation of ABBA. I might have looked silly, but I embraced and enjoyed every second.
Later that afternoon, Annika and I went into Gomla Stan, which is old town Stockholm, and each ordered a Belgian waffle with a scoop of chocolate ice cream and Nutella drizzled on top. It might have been the best thing I have ever eaten, and it definitely put me in a food coma. I don’t even want to think about the number of calories I consumed. I keep reminding myself that calories don’t count since I am on vacation, right?
All in all, I loved Stockholm. It was clean, beautiful, and the people were so friendly. I would love to return and spend more time there in the future. If there was even the slightest of interests, I would recommend Stockholm to anyone. I’m looking forward to the remaining weeks ahead. I know they are going to go by in the blink of an eye. I’m ready to take on and experience every second of the weeks I have left.
