a little taste of europe :: stockholm, copenhagen

there is nothing like a quick trip to europe to brake up the time working in africa. i love being there, but there is much to say about the comforts of the first world. so after being away from home for two months, i was ready for some pampering. spending two weeks in copenhagen and stockholm was a fantastic treat. the two cities couldn't be more different, i loved both. stockholm in a strange way reminded me of san francisco, quiet and laid back and full of hipsters. the design in copenhagen is unparalleled, it's effortless and stylish. having really long days only help, it's light until 10-11pm, which gives more opportunities to explore these great cities.
