After 8 years of owning an apartment in central Stockholm it is now time to say goodbye. Erik and I have bought a house in Gothenburg and therefore want to combine all our Swedish homes (all two of them). Thus the last couple of days were spent in Stockholm packing, cleaning and saying goodbye to all good friends, neighbours and dog friends there. Although it is always sad to say goodbye, it actually felt okay.
It was difficult to see that Stockholm was affected by covid-19 restrictions. Still seems like a metropol city with lots of activities and people. As we are (were) living on the border between Norrmalm and Östermalm, and close to Stureplan and Humlegården, this in my mind is one of the best areas of Stockholm. We met and talked to so many people on our few walks with the dogs there. Don’t ever say that people are reserved in Stockholm. If so, get a dog and you will have an endless number of people to talk to. This part I will really miss from Stockholm. And I will sorely miss my wonderful neighbours at Brf Österbotten32!
On the way back to Gothenburg, we passed by Erik’s father Carl Edvard in Katrineholm. He finally had his two vaccinations and it therefore felt safe to visit him. It’s been more than a year since we last met. Carl Edvard is in pretty good shape considering he is now 96 years old. It was very nice seeing him again and knowing he is in good hands with help from friends, neighbours and assistance from ‘hemtjänst’.
Here below just a few selected pictures from happy occasions in STHLM.
