Stockholm has been enjoying some great weather this week. My thermometer reached the early twenties yesterday.
What is remarkable is the change in the city and it’s people. Tables have appeared from nowhere in front of pubs, restaurants, bakeries, cafes and kebab houses. Its great to see people sitting out in the sun and enjoying the rays.
What I really like is my local square Mariatorget. They have a great statue of Thor having rumble with a couple of nasty sea creatures, apparently called Jörmungandr. What makes me giggle is the Swedish toddlers climbing all over them, they would have scared me senseless as a kid, must be the Viking mentality!
What is really cool now is the sea creature also doubles up as a fountain and there is a small pool around Thor and co. See the photo above.
If the weather is this good on the weekend I think I will try and get on a boat sightseeing trip.
