Sunny Stockholm!

Early morning flight to Stockholm on Thursday
- arrived so early to the hotel that
couldn't check-in yet
Walked in Kungsholmen in a perfect weather!
- wanted to go to R.O.O.M - the famous interior shop
but it was closed down!
There was still the sign up,
but nothing inside - verý sad!
As it was lunch time = noon
(at 11 o'clock starts the lunch time in Northern Europe!)
decided to eat something at the restaurant
called Ett Litet Kök
next to the former R.O.O.M
.
Had shrimp salad, of course!
- lots of hand peeled shrimps, asparagus,
avocado, boiled egg (not too hard which was great),
new potatoes, tomato wedges, iceberg salad
& Thousand Island sauce
- nice & fresh portion
.
Ett Litet Kök
Alströmergatan 20
112 47 Stockholm
- nice lunch place
.
Hungarians would call these houses:
"Mediterran hangulat"
= Mediteranean atmosphere
(because of the colours!)
- for me they look rather Scandinavian
.
After all that walking & shopping
in a gorgeous weather
had a break at Wayne's Coffee
- water with lemon,
pomegranate&green tea drink
(detox drink, no added sugar - very nice taste),
& organic blueberry muffin
.

And finally the results of the shopping:
Not possible to leave Sweden without
Victoria's & Daniel's Wedding chocolates
.
Not only chocolate,
also some other "tillbehörer"
like these 2 cute bowls by Rörstrand
& royal paper napkins
.
Stockholm is the place to buy Gant products
NK has a nice Gant Home department
- bought 2 white duvets with black details
& also 2 pillow cases to match
.
Lexington department is next to Gant at NK
- bought black & white blanket
(have already light grey one and love it!
It's so soft & comfortable cotton)
. Bought the 3 latest Wallander dvd's,
& 2 other films:
"Coco avant Chanel"
"Los abrazos rotos"
&
a cd of Volbeat!
(great music for running)
.
