After a month trying to find my way in London - going from couch to couch, trying to open a UK bank account and having a tough start to live-in caregiving (who knew that a 25yo girl with a spinal injury could be so MEAN) - I finally got to meet up with James in Stockholm, Sweden.
I arrived a day early and spent the day walking along the waterfront and tried to get to the 2nd largest IKEA in the world (Largest is in South Korea??). I ended up at the wrong one, so I got some IKEA meatballs and went back to our AirBnb. I booked a cute little guest house/cabin outside of the city. It was great having a little kitchen, underfloor heating and the owners Netflix password!
James arrived late Friday night after a big week working on his first presentation - the 'Ultimate Digital Experience' of showering.
On Saturday we did a walking tour of the 'Old Town'. I never knew that Stockholm was made up of 14 main islands, and thousands of little ones.
On Sunday we took a boat tour around one of the islands admiring the beautiful fall colours.
Early Monday morning, we said our good-byes and James went back to Umea and me back to London.
