We celebrated Midsummer on Friday. It is one of the most important traditions in North Europe. The longest day of the year is celebrated all day long.
I had a wonderful long weekend in Milan. Since it was my third time in this city, I didn’t feel like a tourist. The purpose was spending time with my sister and cheering her up before her thesis work presentation. She had become quite the local in her two years here, so was well-prepared when finding nice restaurants and cafes.
Before I went to Milan last week we got to enjoy the sun in Sweden. On one of those days we grabbed the picnic blanket, a few books and some drinks, then went to our favorite spot in the city: the biggest park, Slottsskogen.
Probably the best thing we did in Bangkok was the canal tour on the river. We were using the ferries for transportation every day, but they were only going on the main river, Chao Phraya. We wanted to see the small canals between the regions where local people were living. It is said that Bangkok is very much like Venice, so we thought it must certainly be worth seeing the secret parts of the city.
