IT’S AN ABOMINATION. Shouldn’t they give you a complimentary pack upon your arrival?
Nah, I’m just kidding. Sweden was great!! We did try to find some Swedish Fish so we could check “eating Swedish Fish in Sweden” off of our bucket list – but since we were unsuccessful, we’re just going to have to prepare a little better and go back. Which would be super easy, since the train ride to Sweden was 45 minutes. It takes me longer to get to Philly.
Although devastated by the lack of Swedish fish, my friends and I found plenty of cool stuff to do. After our 10AM arrival in Malmö, we visited the nearby castle-turned-museum and its beautiful gardens. We wandered through Swedish streets under a lovely blue sky (such a nice break from the Copenhagen grey), and shop-hopped. (<– I made that word up. Think testing wacky make-up, browsing Scandinavian furniture, and getting matching rings from H&M.)
We ran into a wicked good street band, took a train to Lund to see the discovery-place of dopamine (our neuroscience friend was so excited), and drank hot chocolate in the shadow of a cathedral. It was one of the most wonderful days of the semester so far. And as a sidenote: nobody checked our passports. Lotta freedom within that Schengen area.
