DAY DRINKING, DUMPLINGS & DREADFUL GOODBYES

It was heaven waking up in a bed full of Daniel. The cold from the misty morning outside fogged up our windows and just like we used to when living together in London we let the morning pass, filling the hours with nothing in particular, just us. At 2pm we felt like it was time to do something and took the tube to Hornstull to wander down a flea market. 2 tjoget Followed up by some day drinking at Tjoget! 3 tjoget We were the only people drinking there and the bartender sure looked confused when we ordered two beers. Sweden isn’t really feeling the Sunday pints, but it was a lovely bar though! For a couple of hours we sat there, asked about the different bottles, discussed which city we could move to in the future and Daniel told me insane stories of what had happened in London whilst I was gone. I actually fell off my chair at one point in laughter/feeling tipsy. 4 beijing 8 At 5pm the beer had made us well hungry. Convenient for us, Stockholm’s arguably best dumpling place Beijing 8 is literally next door from Tjoget. 6 daniel We ordered all the different flavours of dumplings and asian beers, because it’s so much more fun that way. Then I died because Daniel is so hot. 5 dumplings beijing 8 The dumplings arrived and were just as delicious as everybody has claimed them to be. 7 daniel beijing 8 stockholm YUM. 7 gamla stan stockholm Stockholm did show its best side, being crisp and drenched in sun. We walked through the whole of Södermalm, across the bridge of Slussen and into the little colourful alleyways of Gamla Stan. 8 gamla stan, stockholm Snapping those tourist shots. 10 gamla stan, stockholm It is absolutely breath taking how pretty this city is. Incomparable to any other I’ve been in. We stopped by Chokladkoppen and I told the stories of how in the 80s when the HIV spread and the lgbt-community and especially gay men were treated like shit, this was one safe haven where they could meet up, get organised and plan i.e. demonstrations. Go there, best fika and nicest people. 11 gamla stan. stockholm We bought the biggest cinnamon bun they had and two cups of coffee to sit down in the sun for a bit. A little later I dropped him off at the station and I can’t find words for how that felt. I sobbed under my sunglasses the whole train ride home, feeling heavier than all the oceans combined.   Linn

GREASY SPOON AND MY MAN

It had been 4 whole weeks since the last time I saw Daniel and I was on the verge of bursting with excitement and suppressed sorrow when I waiting for him to arrive at the bus terminal. Who doesn’t like a good cry with their cliché reunion right? But I don’t care, it still felt like the happiest goddamn moment in my life to get to spend the following 31hrs with him. 1 greasy spoon After some strolling around, catching up, making out etc I took him to Greasy Spoon which Frida had recommended. 2 daniel While queueing for a table in the cold Daniel once again brought up how Stockholm is overflowing with young parents. And I must say that it was surreal. We had three pregnant couples queueing behind us, another two eating at various tables in the restaurant and as we get seated we get a table where three young pregnant women had eaten. THE WHOLE WORLD IS PREGNANT. 10 greasy spoon8 greasy spoon Seated in this pretty place we ordered poached eggs and coffees and luckily for me Greasy Spoon sure does not feel anything like Stockholm. 7 greasy spoon The majority of the staff only speak English and it is cheap, relaxed and far from perfect. Even Daniel felt hope for a foreigner to adapt to Stockholm. 5 greasy spoon The food arrived and was divine. You all Stockholm people have to go here! 4 daniel But the best thing was obviously just to sit opposite a too small a table with this one and just fucking hang out again. It so isn’t fair having to live in separate cities from the person who makes you happiest. 12 daniel greasy spoon Pleased we paid and left and I felt that I will absolutely become a regular here. 13 södermalm14 The rest of the day was spent drinking take away coffee on the backstreets of Södermalm before going home to not do a single little thing! Just stream series, talk nonsense and perhaps go to a late night cinema screening. Just us two trying to cling onto those few hrs before being apart again.     Linn

MIDWEEK DRINKS & TORMENTED HEARTS

To claim that the first few weeks of Hyper Island was like a whirlwind is such an understatement. It was as if somebody hooked onto all my beliefs and all that was me and turned it all apart and inside out and finally washed it all away. Never have I been so physically and emotionally drained. As a result I had not seen anything apart from the tube, my school and my house. 3 nicole saboune But three weeks in I actually remembered that there is such a thing as a social life and on a Wednesday I went to meet up with Nicole and her boyfriend with friends at Trädgården. 1 saboune Because Sebastian was in town with Elsie! 5 trädgården4 It was absolutely surreal to be out and see people and not do anything apart from drinking beer. And God if I have missed it! I LOVE BEER AND I LOVE DAY DRINKING. 2 tradgarden I must be extremely immature because I still refuse to admit that I live in Sweden. As a result I haven’t explored Stockholm whatsoever and I don’t even have a Swedish telephone number. Having some of my brit friends here made my heart torment even more. 6 trädgården7 saboune But at least for a few hours we could eat disgusting hamburgers and just hang out pretending things were all back to normal. 8 saboune Some of their friends were dog sitting (which btw might be my dream profession?) and we all got to cuddle it and secretly feed her bread. <3 10 The sun climbed down the globe and Trädgården filled up with tune thirsty hipsters. 9 And it was time. 11 jenny wilson For Jenny Wilson to play. She was awesome, even though that is not my kind of music. But reality can only be put on hold for that long, and I had to say bye and head home to learn how to code. The irony of how my life has switched from 100% social to 100% learning.   Linn
