Three good things

Djurgården in Stockholm is one of the 14 islands that Stockholm is built upon and it's filled with fun things to do (part from being beautiful!). Today I introduced my daughter to three things on it.

Skansen - an open-air museum and zoological park - located on the top of the island with a splendid view of all of Stockholm. My daughter loved it, but kept asking where the giraffs and the tigers were. She was happy to see a baby elk and the back of a cow in the end.

Rosendals trädgårdar - a fantastic garden and café, where you can eat great food in the most beautiful garden. My daughter thought the slide in the park was great since it was so fast...

... and finally...

Gröna Lund - the fun fair by the water, over 100 years old (but with new attractions...), filled with fun and laughter. My daughter didn't want to leave...

Happy and exhausted we returned to the island almost 12 hours later. It's hard work to introduce your kids to your childhood memories in such a short time.

Five more days...

Veronika - japp, man får jobba hårt! ;-) Åh, vad härligt med Seglora! Har varit på bröllop där - så vackert (förutom att träbänkarna är HÅRDA att sitta på för de som sitter i församlingen). Jag älskar Skansen - bara utsikten över stockholm är värt ett besök.

Malin2 - jaaaa - det var helt fantastiskt!
