Orebro, Sweden-chill summer in paradise

I got invited to Orebro, Sweden-which wasn’t on my travel list but really gorgeous town

After a week in London, flew to Stockholm, Sweden for another week( planned to stay there for a bit more than a week but my friend misunderstood me, so stayed only 6 days and I got two flight tickets to berlin…one I bought and one he bought for me)

Arrived in Stockholm around early afternoon, had to take a train to Stockholm train station which I got lost for a while trying to find right terminal, one way ticket was about 50€, pretty expensive.

Finally got to Stockholm train station and I got lost again…this time tried to figure out which train I could take and info centre was full, waited about half hour and my friend wasn’t helpful, I literally spend almost two hours walking around the station and terminals. I was so pissed about myself and complaining why my friend-Leo didn’t come to pick me up.

Well, fortunately, after asking so many people and finally bought the right ticket…found out I had to wait another 5 hours… I almost cried I was so tired and still have 5 hours to wait.

So I decided to eat something, found a coffee shop in train station, this salad cost 20€…

 

20 minutes before my “train” arrived, I unhurried left coffee shop try to find the right terminal, but I couldn’t!!!

Before 5 mins, I found out I was supposed to take bus first then train, god, glad I got on that bus, don’t wanna wait another hours

Arrived in Orebro almost 1 am, Leo didn’t show up, I was like so tired and still pissed about everything.

Seriously, this few days he made me pissed every single day, it’s not that he did something bad, just he always let me wait more than one hour or two for some stupid reason, I hate waiting.

Ok, basically life here just cook-chill-cook and sometimes go around the town( can’t even use the word “visit” because it took me one hour or less to visit the whole town with a bike)

Since this day I fell in love with Swedish meat balls

Because Leo has to work, so I go around by myself, cooked and ate by myself

On the way to centre (about 10 mins walk)
