I'm not even sure where to start. I guess the beginning would be a good place, yes? Matt and I were luckily enough to join two other students and a faculty member on a trip to Sweden and Denmark to work on a couple of research projects.
Yup – I went to Sweden and Denmark for work. When did I start going to Europe on work-related activities?
Sweden was amazingly beautiful The first day that we were there it was quite cold but snow free. Probably a good thing since we got off at the wrong train stop and ended up dragging our luggage for 20ish minutes until we got to the hotel. Turns out our correct subway stop was literally right next to the hotel. I kid you not.
Our hostel had no closet, only a small clothes rack. But we made it work while being super professional. Oh & Malmo has a giant lamp in the middle of downtown.
We woke up the next morning to snow. SNOW, I tell you! Oh, the heart on this little Californian was fluttering nonstop. And the snow was nonstop for the week that we were there. Truly magical. I mean beside the fact that it ruined my non-waterproof boots, but whatever. So worth it.
Maybe that is how I ruined my boots.
For those of you who didn't grow up with snow, can you remember the first time you saw snow? Or, have you been to Sweden?
