Hej igen, Stockholms!

It took me five long years to finally step again on Swedish soil. It felt so good to be back in my favourite foreign city. The weather was in a mood, swinging forth from heavy rains to overcast sky to a bit of sunshine. But that didn't stop me from enjoying this homecoming of sorts.

It was raining when I arrived at the Arlanda Airport and my good friend and fellow Waray Joel Bagon was there to pick me up. After settling at their elegant flat on Norr Mälarstrand, we immediately roamed the streets of Stockholm. We walked and walked and walked. It was just lovely to see Stockholm again in the midst of the rains and the changing of seasons from summer to autumn.

It was also comforting to hear the Swedish language, see familiar signs  and visit the places I frequented. And what's an afternoon in Stockholm without the traditional fika

But what made this short trip to Stockholm more memorable was meeting most of my friends, people who have become a big part of my almost a year stay in Sweden (but that deserves a separate post).

I've compiled photos from this trip in this video. Enjoy and for those who miss Stockholm, let's have a dose of nostalgia.

Big thanks to Joel, Åke and Dr. T for the warm hospitality.
